  • Excerpt: I have always skimped on tripods, but Adorama had this pair at a great price. Wow, the things this can do could really improve my imaging especially for closeup work! It's adjustable in so many ways I had to break down and read the manual : ^)A great tripod, a great price - thanks Adorama!

Heavy but very sturdy

  • Excerpt: This was a sale item when I purchased it. The good part of this tripod is the heavy weight it can support, very important when taking landscape images. The only trade-off is the weight of the tripod, it is slightly heavy to carry for any great distance.

Very Satisfied

  • Excerpt: Can't rate reliability because I've only had mine for a week, but after using once in the field, I'm very impressed with this tripod/head combo. It is very sturdy using my Nikon dslr and 300mm lens. It is tall and heavy (which I like)and seems to be made of quality materials.

Almost Measures Up To Promise

Adorama
22 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Using this tripod with a 400mm lens to photograph the planets reveals shortcomings that may not be important in other applications.Its legs are sturdy and overall fit and finish are good.However, there is enough "play" between the "shoe" and its receptacle to invite camera shake that can mess up...

  • Excerpt: Overall a very good product. I bought this to replace an old Slik tripod I've been using, and so far I'm very pleased with it. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to use the Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC), but once you do it's very simple.
