Great Little Tripod !!!

Maverick1854, Adorama
11 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I love this tripod!!! Although I have a lot of tripods, this quickly became my favorite. First time I used it I was walking around in the downtown area shoting some of the historic building we have. The light weight was definetly a plus. After several hours walking with camera extra lenses and tripod I felt no muscle strain at all. I gave this tripod a 5 star rating only because I couldn't give it a 4.5 or 4.75 star rating.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Extra Qr Shoes Available, Fast set up, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Light weight
  • Cons: Light weight

What I expected for the price.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this particular product for several reasons. It was at my price point, it was made by a respected name, and it had many of the qualities I wanted in a tripod.I generally use it taking wildlife photos. I do get a bit of camera shake if I use it fully extended but a remote switch would probably solve that. It is easy to carry around and I strap it right to my camera bag and I barely notice its additional weight.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Good light duty tripod

John Astro photographer, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod to support a small barn door astro photo system. I owned a similar Slik tripod 25 years ago but it was lost in hurricane Katrina. This model is not as sturdy as my earlier Slik due to the all plastic head. The aluminum legs seem pretty solid and the rubber/spiked feet are an excellent feature for my application. However the quick release plate, while convenient, is another source of instability.

  • Excerpt: I use it mostly for landscape photography. It's one of the best out there for the price - well cosntructed, lighter than it looks and the head is changeable. I do wish the angles of the three legs can be separately adjusted.

Well made, smooth operating tripod

LarryJ, Adorama
12 January 2010
  • Excerpt: This reasonable cost tripod will work well in almost all situations. A little too bulky, heavy for hiking & extended carry use. 3-way head has smooth movement and lock-downs, easy to make fine adjustments, although "(Fluid/3-way) Head" is a bit of an over statement. This tripod is sturdy enough that it can likely support somewhat over the stated 4 lbs, maybe up to 6.
