Very sturdy

  • Excerpt: This tripod is so much sturdier than my Manfrotto for the same price. It's easier to manipulate and I love the central column system that allows me to get directly over a subject.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly

Good all-around tripod

Mixed Media, B&H Photo
19 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Initially when I was shopping for tripods, I was just going to get a generic tripod that cost much less. Then I figured since I was going to be doing some product photography, that I should look into my options for taking pictures horizontally. It came down to the Benro A2970F or this tripod.

Solid Tripod

  • Excerpt: Bought this to do macro photography where I will stack the images for greater depth-of-field. Needed something sturdy and easy to set up in tough places. This seems to actually do the job. I can photograph from nearly ground level and get shots I couldn't do before.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight

ATLA PRO 263 AT

  • Excerpt: I just received this tripod about two weeks now. Straight from the box it is nicely packaged. It is sturdy and I love its versitile abilities (multi-angle central column system). The tripod legs are stiff right now when trying to open the legs apart.

Just what you need

Bemo, Adorama
14 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This tripod works great for photographing papers, documents, books, objects, etc. where you shoot straight down at the object. It is so much easier than taping something to a wall or surface or trying to hold the object up and shooting parallel to the ground.Of course you can use it for almost most...
  • Pros: Affordable, Many Uses
  • Cons: No Quick Mount

Decent product

  • Excerpt: So far I have been pleased with the product. Have not used it a lot yet but seems it will prove to be a good investment. I had a camera with a 500mm zoom and it did not seem to be very secure. Had some trouble getting it to stay still but I'm sure with some practice I can figure it out.
  • Pros: Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy
