My video's look way more professional and I feel more confident as a film maker having it in my kit.

The pans and tilts are smooth and you can adjust the tension.

I've had a lot of cheap tripods over the years and with their combined value I could have two of these beauties. I don't know what took me so long to finally pull the trigger on an investment like this but I wish I had done it sooner and saved my time and money. This is a tremendous deal, the fluid head is buttery smooth and offers enough resistance to give you great pans and tilts. My video's look way more professional and I feel more confident as a film maker having it in my kit. You can't afford NOT to have this if you're trying to build up a professional reel.

I never had or touch , tried or hands on any other Tripod with Fluid Drag Head beside this one , but i feel this tripod is good for it price ( $ 158.00 at the time i purchase ) with my first time on this tripod experience . The head is made mainly in metal ,only the tie knobs are plastic but it still looks and feel the quality out of it ,it feels solid and heavy when you hold it in your hand ( i compared to my walmart tripod :) . Pan and tilts movement are smooth , the legs stand is just a little bit above normal to me , it's shaked ( not much but i feel it a little lower than what my expected ). I feel the material they used to make it aint strong enough.

So , as i said that i dont have much experience on other tripod but base on how i feel about this tripod , i rated it 4* .

I have used this tripod for almost a month now for video work and it is exactly what I was looking for. For those of us with small budgets, this fixed tripod is a marvel. The pans and tilts are smooth and you can adjust the tension. It is also just heavy enough. Not too heavy that it is not easy to carry on a plane, but also not flimsy either. It comes with a handy soft carrying case. I am still practicing panning at 40X since it is not as easy to pan at this level of magnification. I think in time I will be able to adjust the tension in order to do smooth panning at 40X. Although it would make an excellent tripod for still photography, it seems a bit overkill if you will be using it for still photography exclusively. This is a tripod made for video and it performs very well. Like everything else, it takes practice, but you will never be able to blame your equipment for your poor performance.

This tripod was constructed by Weifeng, a Chinese photography/video company ([...]). It is extremely well done, with all the features and build quality I've come to expect from established builders like Manfrotto. I never expected to be able to get a tripod like this for under $200 (or $300, for that matter).

This model is light, portable and great for quick setups, but is sturdy enough to take a large camera or DSLR rig. Highly recommended.

(Note: My five-star rating is based on the current price of $150. If it were to go above $250, I would rate it four stars, simply because there is nothing exceptional about it at that price.)
