You can adjust the camera angle simply using this pistol grip.
This is one of the least expensive tripod with the pistol grip.
I purchased this item in June 2011 and on March 2012, one of the leg fell apart.
This tripod only travelled to a few times and just fell apart.
The failure point was the plastic lock on the tripod leg. On the outside, it looks sturdy but inside the lock didn't last.
Please consider this before you buy.
I have to say that I wish I would have purchased the pistol ball grip for myself. The Sunpak 620 I purchased for my brother and it seemed very nice the little bit I played with it. I was not using it with my Canon 7d, but had on his G11, so there was a significant difference in weight, but it was working perfectly for his G11. I read in some reviews that it will not hold tight, but will move a little bit. I'm not sure if that's becuase they had large heavy cameras or what, but ultimately I didn't think it would be an issue with a G11. My sister lives in the same town and has a Canon Rebel XTi and I really didn't think it would be an issue with that. I wish I would have mounted my 7d and I have a few telephotos I could have tried out...but I didn't.
Thus, from my experience (albeit limited) this seemed to be a great, very affordable tripod. I think Sunpak makes good affordable gear. You certainly will tell a difference between a $100-$200 Manfrotto, but for the money and functionality you can't go wrong. And if you do...it's not a huge investment.
Pros: Functional; Sweet pistol ball grip; Reasonably Priced; Ability to Get Replacement Mounting Plates
Cons: None as of yet.
Overall, I give this product my stamp of approval and would recommend to others.
I noticed after having used it only 5 times that the trigger release for the mount in which is what holds the camera to the mount kept sticking so much that I had to get my client to help me to get it unstuck so I could place my camera on it, thank goodness he was a friend, because that is embarrassing. I would have liked to write it off to maybe not using as frequently as I had planned but that is not the only issue. It does not have the range I was looking for or reading about on this product because I literally mount my camera and can only turn it in circles and down or up about 25 degrees so I can not use it for bird's eye POV like I wanted because the ball joint does not allow for downward or upward angles. The last thing would be the pistol grip itself becomes so loose that when positioning my camera (which is under the size limit) I have to position about an inch or two higher because it begins to fall down and become unlevel leading to crooked photographs.
Aside from those (potentially fatal to an expensive camera) flaws it is lightweight enough and yet sturdy at the same time, it doesn't feel like it is going to break and you do not need sand bags to hold down outside in the elements.
The best summary I can give is that you get what you pay for.
I like the pistol grip head and the quick release plate quite a bit. They're not pro level components, but I think they'll work very well for me as an amateur photographer. I would be reticent to call the body of this tripod "medium duty" though. It's very light, and there is a lot of movement in all of the joints. On a windy day this is probably going to be unusable.
I'll probably keep this for light duty situations, but I'll be on the lookout for something a little sturdier that can be used in a wider range of applications.
