HORRIBLE

Annoyed, Adorama
29 May 2014
  • Excerpt: This tripod looked great on the day that I opened it... but 3 uses later the plastic pieces shattered in my hands. It didn't help that this was my back up tripod for a video shoot I was going to. This is by far one of the worst products I have every purchased. I highly recommend you don't waste your money.

Quality for the price

  • Excerpt: Excellent value. I use it with a Nikon D3100 and a Sigma 70-300mm lens. This thing is sturdy and doesn't feel like it's going to tip over or collapse at all like some other tripods for the same money.
  • Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp

nice tripod

  • Excerpt: first off in reference to the one review that said the center post is wobbly, true but if you tighten down the ring it makes it pretty tight. That reviewer also said the mounting plate was too large to leave on the camera, totally disagree unless you are using a small point and shoot. I have a Nikon D5100 and the mounting plate is perfect for that size camera and leave it on all the time with no problems.The tripod is very well made and sturdy.

Great tripod for the price

AmmieJaan, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Good tripod for the price. Base is quite stable. Center column is best kept unextended. Extending the center column, even a little bit, makes the camera super wobbly. Theres an extra quick release head which is nice, but the size is too big to leave on the camera.

  • Summary: This is a real high quality piece of equipment. It is very light so it is probably best for indoor shooting. But the stand is wide enough to give it a stable base. The height is not good for standing and shooting. So get a good chair to sit on. It will put your camera at table top level. This is a very good tripod for the price.

  • Summary: I read several reviews of tripods prior to purchasing this one and I have to say that I am happy that I didn't waste my money on the $100 one I was thinking about getting.I absolutely love this tripod because it is so simple to use. I can set it up in about 30 seconds, including getting the camera locked in place. Having the 2nd platform also means that I can quickly switch between my camera and video camera, if need be.

Don't order because it's not in stock!

Buzz Gunderson, Adorama
19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: This review is for the store. I ordered for in store pick up. They never contacted me that it was ready. When I followed up with a phone call I was told it wasn't in stock but they would have it in a couple of days. A week later I still hadn't heard back so I followed up again and was told they found one but I had to go to the store immediately to pick it up which, even though I live close to Manhattan, I couldn't do.

  • Summary: Lots of adjustments, with stability. I like the leg rubber or tip/metal option for different surfaces. Great tripod for the price.
