Summary: This is my first tripod. I have a A200 which is not heavy and didn't really need a ball head. The tripod holds sturdy enough, have not tested it in very windy conditions though. i would go for something better if I had an expensive SLR as this does not seem very reliable. Worth the price and functional for basic SLRs.
Summary: I got this tripod along with my Canon 1100D and I have used it with 55-250mm lens a lot of times. Pros: 1. Sturdy enough. 2. Made of good quality aluminum 3. 3 way panhead helps you a lot 4. Easy to carry as it is not much heavy Cons: 1. Max weight it can carry might fall short if you use bulkier cameras with battery grip and heavy L lenses. But this would be rare. Summary: Really great tripod for a beginner DSLR owner. You wont regret buying it. (P.S.
Summary: The build quality is fine for most users, is quite stable, i believe the price is a bit high for such a tripod, check out other inexpensive alternatives.. I highly recommend "Benro T-880EX Tripod". 3 stars only due to high price.
Summary: my first tripod.. Stunning looks, sleek but sturdy.. greatest advantage is that it is feather weight considering the fact that it stands tall-- a towering 165cms.. nothing negative about it so far.. since i havent used it that long, i cant guarantee about that now.. cheers..
Summary: Pros: - Good looking and sleek - Light weight according to its length - Maximum flexibility for camera to be held at any angle. Cons: - Except its plastic feel, None cons till now , in my knowledge ( I am still an amateur photographer).
Its good but 3-way pan head could have been better.

Summary: Pros: * Sturdy enough * Length is more than adequate (but won't be stable at longer height) * Light weight Cons: * 3-way pan head could have been better. It only has one handle for panning others are screw type. * In extended height, it is unstable. * Not so portable. 620 mm(24.4 Inch) foldaway height.
Summary: I bought the VAnguard MAK233 from flipkart through a friend so my name will not appear as a certified buyer. I have been using this tripod for more than a month and I would like to share my experience (Pros and Cons) about using this tripod. Lets go through the cons first: 1. The most irritating part of this tripod is the "tilt head handle"- (the handle with which one tilts the camera up and down).
