This tripod is so awesome. It gets into any place you can think of. It's light and its sturdy!
Only used for few times but appear very sturdy and well made. Will absolutely recommend.
What a sweet tripod. For year I have wanted a tight to the ground adjustable to any elevation tripod. I purchased a used Benbo.,it was great but I was frustrated setting it up. Felt I was wrestling a Octopus!!! The Explore is so easy . One lever adjust at any angle to u level ground is awesome.
I used to own the heavier (non-carbon fiber) version of this tripod. It provided years of solid support and great flexibility. This one provides the same benefits along with the added bonus of being lighter. For outdoor work, I find the Explorers the best and easiest tripods to use.
Things that take some getting used to are 1. Having to unlock the legs every time you want to set it up or move it, the simple get around is don't re-lock the legs when you fold up and move to a new location. 2.
Purchased this tripod and a suitable head for travelling, but in the end purchased a second one from another brand. It's a very good tripod, although a bit stiff to operate, but the explorer name belies the fact that with a head you're looking at 2.5kg, which is a heavy lump to lug around with the...
Compact, Good Footing, Locks In Tight
Difficult To Adjust, Heavy, Jerky Movement
Full flexibility of center column and legs that move without detents make this ideal for all types of nature photography. Slows down the picture taking process with all the possible adjustments which is a good thing since that allows the photographer to survey the entire scene.
This is currently my favorite tripod for all-around work in the field. It is tall enough to use for landscapes (though it could be taller), and it is extremely flexible for macro work with flowers. It is light enough that you can carry it all day without really noticing it.
Easy to set up and use, especially in uneven or difficult terrain. Very steady. Cannot be use in salt water. I live near the ocean. For this reason, I deducted one star.
Ease of use for landscapes is outstanding.
