Excerpt: I used this tripod for photographing small paintings. It is a light weight tripod, useful for carrying around, but a little too light for studio work. The mount is plastic; however, the camera quick release worked well - a good design. The tilt feature - necessary for getting the image leveled in the frame has too much flexibility - tighten the clamp and it sags a degree or two.
Summary: this is a good product at a good price. it's solid construction and light weight are a great alternative for somebody on a budget. i've owned this for a couple years now and haven't had a problem.
Summary: it's plastic.However quite stable.
I'm considering a 70-200 IS F2.8/L,so wait and see if it can carry it.
However,I think it will work perfectly until you put some huge stuffs such as 1Ds Mark3 plus a 400 4/L...
Summary: This thing is very steady, however there is one thing I don't like about is that the level trigger thing in the middle is very annoying. When I roll it to the high level it cannot handle heavy camera to hold on to it. I wish there is a lock button to hold it.
Summary: I've had experience with the bargain brands, and those aren't even worth the trouble. If you are looking for a great bargain, though, this is the one. I wouldn't trust using this for rugged outdoor shooting, but it's great for my studio set up. It has a fluid head, bubble level and feels like it won't tip over as easily as the cheap-o tripods. Definitely a great buy at $50, as the next plateau of tripods with the same functionality are more than double the price.
Pros: Compact and light, but able to support large rigs (up to 15lbs). All in one solution (Fluid Head + Legs).
Cons: Plastic knobs and camera plate. Hard plastic, slippery feet.
Excerpt: Первый штатив. Покрывает полностью все потребности. Советую посмотреть видео обзоры сравнения с младшими моделями линейки. Меня привлек средний вес -- его не сдувает на ветру и рука не отрывается при переноске.
Conclusion: Att använda: 4 Hållbarhet: 2
Använder det till en nikon D700 med 70-200mm 2,8 som tyngsta optik. Det är alldeles för tungt för det här stativet.
Vibrationer fortplantar sig genom det och låset i höjdled kryper loss. Det enda jag gillar med stativet är video-style-huvudet vars rörelser fungerar bra.
