Great tripod!

Terry, Henrys

  • Summary: I was looking for something a little more than my "beginner" tripod that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg, and I found it with this one. I love the centre column that extends in all directions. Opens it up to so many options and creative opportunities. The legs extend in independent angles as well.

  • Summary: Ordered this combo about a month ago and am very pleased with it. The whole thing feels tight and when it is locked down, nothing moves...even a mm. The multi-angle center column has come in very handy for macro work.
