Nice solid tripod for a great price; be wary of the bubble level,

This review is from: BENRO A-198M8 Aluminum Flexpod (Electronics)Works well, seems pretty solid. I use this with a Manfrotto 498RC2 ballhead and a Nikon D700 with vertical grip and any number of lenses, the heaviest being a 300mm f/4.5 Ai-S. It has no trouble supporting the weight. The legs lock with a twist, so you do need to be careful that you've tightened them securely, but I've noticed no problems with slipping. Seems very sturdy. Only one minor quibble: The tripod comes with a bubble level, but mine is mounted crooked. It's glued into the tripod a bit sloppily and isn't accurate.
