Product Description

The Ravelli AVTP is a complete Professional 75mm Video Tripod including legs, mid-level spreader, dual fluid head and carry bag.

The legs are a 3-Segment Interlocking Crutch-Type design with a mid-level spreader providing oustanding stability for Video Cameras up to 27lbs. The legs utilize large ergonomic lock adjustment knobs and rubber feet for stability. Interchangeable heads connect to the legs using a standard 75mm bowl with a separate lock adjustment providing pan and tilt adjustment in addition to the head.

The head features dual continuous drag fluid movement for both 360 degree pan and 180 degree tilt as well as dual handles for more precise control. There are independent locks for both the the pan and tilt axis. The camera secures to the head using a quick release video plate with a separate safety latch to prevent slideoff.

The carry bag is large enough to hold the legs, head and spreader and is included for your convenience.

*The legs alone are worth the price!
*Heavy and supports my Canon XHA1 no problem.
*Pans are nice and smooth.
*Gives off a professional look to impress clients.
*x2 sliding plates! Plus my Manfrotto 357 Plate fits the head perfectly!
*Pretty good carrying bag.

*The head sticks when trying to tilt up and down slowly giving you the snap most cheap heads offer. I've tried all tension settings and I get the same result every time.
*Even with the screw taken off completely, panning left and right is so stiff, panning the tripod quickly can pull the entire tripod off it's legs.
*The Tripod Head and the Ball leveler are reversed, which means if you wanted to replace the head, you'd have to purchase a ball leveler as well which goes for at least $50.
*Wish I could do something to replace the cheap rubber feet.

Other Thoughs:
*Buy this tripod for the legs as they are very well worth the price alone. I plan on replacing the head as I feel it's causing more problems than solutions.
*Ravelli is very generous with their tripod accessories.
*I have to mount my XHA1 backwards because the tightening knob on the head gets in the way, but I have this same problem with my other mount as well.


Product Update:

After posting this review, I was contacted by Cheetah Mounts about the product. Let me just say that they offer some of THE BEST customer service a company can offer. Less than a week after I posted this review, the friendly Cheetah Mount representative immediately sent me a new head without hesitation as he feared I may have received a bad tripod head.

The new head preforms slightly better.

I have always been a Bogen fan and I think Bogen makes the best tripods. Was shopping at Amazon for a Bogen 501 and saw this model at the bottom of the ad. The text said it was comparable to the 501. The 501 cost $499 and this model was $169. Given that price difference, I decided to give it a try but to be honest I wasn't expecting much. But this is actually a very good tripod.

My video setup with lens and accessories weighs about 20 lbs. That weight is not a problem for these legs - very stable. And the head is very smooth. At one point in the middle of a pan from right to left there was a slight "bump" in the panning movement. But I was able to fix this by adjusting the tensioning screws. It is true that the head is not as good as a Bogen 501, but for 1/3 the price it is more than good enough. You would really have to be a high end user to appreciate the differenece.

Comes with a decent bag too. You could get a nicer one, but this one should last for at least a couple years of road trips.

As an owner of both the AVT and AVTP (Professional) models, I can say that the Pro model (AVTP) I received has a much, much better Fluid Head. I'm not sure why. Physically, both Heads look the same and seem to be of the same construction quality. The only visible differences are cosmetic: the handles on the Pro model are longer w/ different grips which are longer as well; the level bubble color on the Pro model is white, while the non-Pro model is yellow. The obvious difference is the way the Heads are attached to the tripod. The Pro model has a bowl attachment and the non-Pro has a traditional screw-mount attachment point connecting to the top of the center shaft.

Although the differences seem obvious and minor, the quality of the pan movements are significantly different. For some reason, the AVT (non-Pro) model exhibits random "sticky" points during the pan. I've tried everything to get it to smooth out, but because of the inconsistency, it is an exercise in frustration to get a nice smooth pan for every shot - it's a gamble! The Pro model (AVTP) is a completely different story.

First impression of the AVTP was, in a word, "Stiff"... both the pan & tilt were really, really stiff. In particular, the Pan was actually difficult to move without grabbing hold of the tripod legs first. Even with the tension knob completely loose, the Head would not pan with out putting some serious force into it. I've since fixed it by loosening the large retaining bolt that runs through the pan mechanism. (Looking at the underside of the Head, you'll see hole which shows the top of a large slotted bold. I loosened this by a 1/4 turn - which was really tight and required lots of force to budge it...) This act made a significant difference. The pan action is now glass smooth!

I have been using my Business partner's Manfrotto tripod with a 503 head for the past few weeks. He is a pro does a lot of on-location shoots and swears by Manfrotto. I shoot with a 60D and and purchased the ephoto rig with a follow focus and matt box. After reading many of the reviews I was skeptical of this tripod do to the issues some have mentioned regarding the stiffness and issues with the head. I figured for the price, worst case scenario I would simply replace the head if it was unacceptable. We'll after using the Manfrotto and now the Ravelli, I for one think this tripod is an amazing buy!!! The unit I received worked flawless right out the box. I didn't have to do any other adjustments what so ever. I set up the tripod next to the Manfrotto, switched the camera back and forth, and believe it or not this head feels smoother. THATS RIGHT, I SAID THE RAVELLI HEAD IS SMOOTHER. I know many of you at this point will think I'm crazy for saying that. But thats the case. I hope to post a video up soon. If you are looking for a serious tripod and you're on a budget or not on a budget look no further, this is a tremendous buy. BTW my business partner came by to check out the tripod for himself and we was floored and couldn't believe I got it for only $150.00. I think he's going to get one for himself.
