Very good for the money, well made.
It is heavy to carry all day.
For my use it is very good, and the price was good.

Like most people have already said, this tripod is well built and very sturdy. I have only used the ball head style before and was not sure I would like the pistol grip, but I love it, very easy to adjust the camera. This is not a lightweight tripod, but if you don't plan on carrying it too far, it is great. The 3 bubble levels are handy, as well as the spiked feet for outdoor use. It has a great range for height, easy to adjust the legs from low to the ground to very tall. Very nice tripod for the price.

Solid piece of equipment. After showing my friends, they are all buying one today.

NOTE: Just make sure you use the included allen keys to check and tighten all joints if necessary. No need to over-tighten, just make sure its snug. Shouldn't need a manual for this if you've used a basic tripod before. The trigger feature is unique and almost instant to adapt. Just feels right. I also recommend you explore with your eyes and brain to understand its motion, it will make you a more responsible user.

I purchased this tripod about a month ago and have used it extensively. The pistol grip is excellent. The only drawback is the weight. It is a bit heavy to carry on shoots where you will be walking a lot. I plan to keep it but will be buying a lighter weight tripod body that can hold the pistol grip head of the Ravelli.

I was a little sceptical when I saw the list price and offering price of $90 with free shipping. After reading the other reviews I took mine out of the box and checked all the screws and locks. Mine was ready to go right out of the box and it came with two snap lock mounting plates. These are a great fast system and I keep one on my main rig and another on the trusty little G-11 I carry every day, everywhere. The tripod is very solid, plenty tall and is an outstanding value for money. Very satisfied.

Great Tripod. Just received and I am blown away buy how ROCK solid this thing is. People have mentioned having to tighten screws. This was not the case with mine. Out of the box it has been working flawless. The bag is good. I has a side pouch for the grip. The pistol grip is worth it in itself. I have a D7000 battery grip, and lens and this thing doesn't budge. So far I love it!!

Update 12/13/12 I have tightened some of the screws on the tripod but this takes no time at all. I still love this tripod. The only thing I wish this tripod had was the ability to exrtend out the arm at 90 degrees. Other than that its still rock solid.

What a buy !!!! Amazing product for the price. Very well built, great features. On the heavier side, but it just adds to the durability, it goes from the trunk of my car to the shooting location, not for carrying long distances. Love the ball head feature, it makes shooting much easier. My only concern is the legs plastic locks, don't know how long will last and if replacement is available. To fit tripod with ball head attached to it in the bag, you need to put it in an angle, no big deal, but had the manufacturer made the bag one inch longer would have fixed the problem. Don't know much about the brand, so I'm hoping if I need assistance with this product, customer service will be easy access.

This thing is awesome. I thought it wouldn't be anywhere near as good as it is. but man was I wrong. My brother thought I spend over $200 on it. It is super soled and in-creditably versatile, the head is rock solid when ever you set it at any angel. I cant say enuf good things about this item.

Got this tripod in the mail yesterday. Came in a large box that then had the smaller tripod box inside, which I didn't understand. The tripod itself is great. It is very very stable.I put my Canon T1i on it as well as my Mamiya 645 super, which is a bit heavier. the pistol grip head is something that I had never seen before. I am a photography student at an art school and have seen lots of tripods. It works really well though so I am quite pleased. Seems a bit more versatile that the traditional 3 aixis head. Also this tripod is really tall, taller than I am when fully extended. Gets to around 6 feet.

A lot of other reviews I have seen have companied about the weight of this tripod. I do not find it to be heavy at all, seems the same as the more expensive Manfrotto tripods. I checked all the screws as other people had gotten the product with them loose, I did not have the same problem. As for the smell, it just smells new to me, not overwhelming or bad at all. The bag is a smidge to small, I had to turn the head at an angle to get it in and it was still really snug. If it were like a quarter inch longer it would fit perfect. It also came with a smaller tripod. Which is garbage, but really really cute.

First off as others have stated this tripod is amazing for the price. I didn't experience any loose screws when my tripod arrived and it was pretty much ready to use out of the box. Secondly, the little tripod that it says it comes with was (at least for me) not the baby tripod pictured. It was an actual tripod with leg extentions and swiveling head. It is a light weight little tripod but it extends to about 5ft tall! I was very plently surprised by that.

The only con I can mention is as others have said before that with the pistol grip head on the tripod it will barely fit into its carring bag. You have to tilt the head to one side then it will barely zip up. I don't know why they didn't just add an extra 3in to the bag so that it would fit inside no problem.

Other than that little quibble, I can't recommend this product enough! And the shipping was prompt as well. All around great buy!
