I bought this beause I wanted an extremely light weight tripod with suficient height for my 6'2" that I could replace a monopod with. The 8254 has met my expectations. I am using it with a DSLR and a 50-500mm zoom on a gimble. I find it as portable as my monopod setup.

I bought this because i have been a lifetime Giottos user. I noticed that the normal leg spread was half of what my alumnium Giottos was, and when i put my 5D MKiii + 24-70mm lens on top, it literally fell right over. So i sent this back for another manufacturer.

This tripod is lightweight, compact, and with lever locks, which I much prefer, very quick to set up and take down. The "Y" shaped center column allows a much smaller yoke and much more compact form when collapsed for travel.

On a recent shoot, one of our group broke the leg off his tripod and had to shoot handheld for the rest of the trip. I shoot 95+% of my photos from a tripod. What I realized is that a spare tripod would be a wise investment as it is not uncommon to invest $1500 - $2000 on a workshop.
