Top Customer Reviews
1. This is solid, and heavy! Built like a tank and stable....
2. Comes with 2 quick release plates
3. It has 3 different degrees of adjustable leg width to fit various applications.
4. Comes with two handles.
5. Includes a decent carrying bag. This bag also has a small zipper pocket within the bag to carry your extra quick release plate and hex keys as well. An added bonus!
6. The rubber feet are removable which allows the ball on the end to be spun to reveal a spike. This is handy for sticking it into a grassy surface so it doesn't move.
1. The head is not entirely fluid. It sticks when tilting up and down on the start, but then becomes smooth once you've begun the motion. But hopefully this will subside with more use as it breaks in.
2. The bubble level is off. It seems to be set incorrectly and does not correctly show when my tripod is level. This is pretty annoying.
3. The dials on the size require lots of turning to lock/release the plate. Basically, you can't just put the plate on, and turn it once to lock it in place. It takes a little more of a turn which can be inconvenient at times.
Although this tripod has it's shortcomings, it is worth the price, as you get good value for money. It's solid and heavy, (weighs about 10 lbs), and has adjustable legs (in both height and width of stance). So overall, I think most will be pleased with this.
As far as smoothness of panning / rotation, I'm not sure what some of the videographers here were expecting from something that costs $80. With everything set up and the tightness of all the relevant threads adjusted correctly, I don't notice any jarring whatsoever. If you have the threads set particularly loose, you're going to get play in the central mounting shaft, but that's not particularly hard to fix (just tighten the thread a bit). The spikes for outdoor shooting are definitely a nice touch.
The carrying bag could be a bit bigger. With the head attached the tripod just barely fits into the bag, would it have been so hard to make it an inch longer, guys?
The quality of materials is, as some reviewers have described, Soviet Bloc-esque. The various metal latches and knobs are very heavy duty, but they also feel very mass-produced / unrefined, and things like the clamps for the included handles tighten in a way that can only be described as "janky." I doubt anything on this tripod will ever break, though. I will say that the lack of tight fitment on some of the pieces would probably make this tripod ill-advised for particularly grainy / wet environments, as I could definitely see sand or mud jamming it up. There are a lot of potential ingress points. If I could describe the quality in a sentence, it would be "Harbor Freight Premium."
But for the money, overall, this tripod is just outstanding. It's got to be nigh-indestructible, it moves smoothly, and it'll handle a pretty damn heavy camcorder, I'm sure.
The head has a tightening lever where you can make it softer on the pan or stiffer. BUT, if you don't move it for a couple minutes, it kinda gets stuck where you have to gently force that lock it gets too so i can move smooth again. I heard that this is common on "fluid head" tripods. You will need to pan it around to warm up the head so it can stay fluid transitions. So now I can finally do some of those smooth slow panning in my videos!
It is pretty heavy at like 10 pounds, but that's really good so that it can't get knocked over easy and the weight will help stay sturdy when panning. It raises higher than I personally need, which is good because when it comes to that time, I don't have to buy another tripod. The legs are nice and thick and the locks lock very tight while having a great adjusting effort. All the levers can pull out for a better handle for turning. Each leg can be adjusted out to nearly make a flat tripod. It's actually equipped with some cool features I must say.
Now the sucky part, although it looks and feels pretty pro-ish, it has some cosmetic issues. Like the release plate on top, to take it off or put it back on, you have a tightening lever under the way where your camera screws on by. So you can barely reach it to loosen or tighten when your camera is mounted to the plate. Some screws have now fallen off the locks for the legs. 2 of them so far, but I got lucky to watch one fall out while transporting it. I had to use a random screw i found laying around in my tool box (worked good).
Like I said, I still use it today and I like it. It's the best one I've used yet but definitely not perfect as it has some cosmetic issue designs. For the low budget peeps, this could be a better starter until you can get the bigger badder tripods. I'll be using mine for another year. I'll be saving up to get into the 200 price range later when I'm really in need to upgrade
