From the first time I laid hands on this tripod, I loved it. It just felt solid and high quality, the knobs and adjustments have a very nice friction to them and tightening/loosening the telescoping legs feels great. I loved the flexibility of the legs and being able to get the tripod down to ground level while I lay on my stomach. Also, the ability to move the center column to interesting angles was very appealing to me.
After about 2 hours of use and familiarization, I put the tripod away until a week later when I headed to Utah for an astrophotography workshop. After being in the field photographing for about 4 hours, absolutely loving the 263CT, I went to put the center column down. I loosened the knob but the column wouldn't budge. Initially, I thought I had turned the wrong knob, but no, it turned out that the knob was now completely inoperable, I loosened the knob until it actually came off of the tripod and still the column would not budge. Hours later back at my hotel I was able to get the column down by tightening the knob beyond what seemed humanly reasonable and then loosening it again.
The next day I went to setup the tripod and one of the telescoping legs slid clean out of the socket and onto the ground. Examining things, it looked like a semi-circular white plastic tab had broken. So in the end, I got by for the remainder of the week by never adjusting the center column and only extending the first set of legs, it was pretty ghetto.
The tripod was fully operational when I opened it and it was never dropped or damaged after that. So these 2 things seem like legitimate product failures. I really wanted the 263CT to be my tripod for the next few years but I guess it's back to the no-frills Sunpak.
