unfortunately this wasn't the tripod for me, as a wedding videographer, it's a lot of work to pick up and move around. it offers more than enough stability, which was what I was looking for. so if you're parking your camera in one location, I'd definitely say this is the tripod for you.

bought this along with a Manfrotto 502HD to be the core of a jib arm/monitor rig - not disappointed in the least. it takes a bit to really get the hang of perfectly adjusting the leg spreader in diff.

This is really a superb video tripod. It has a geared center column for getting the camera to the EXACT height needed easily. It is stable and incredibly strong and well made. It is the next best thing to having a pedestal.

While this is a great heavy duty tripod, the leg adjusters are similar to the older 3051 (Bogan) tripod's adjusters and while I am EXTREMELY carefull with such things, the adjustment knobs eventually end up stripping and will just turn and not TIGHTEN.

These legs are a serious heavy duty set of sticks. The diameter of the legs and fact that there are only two sections combined with the spreader make it very stable. It takes a bit longer to set up than my 3021, and is much larger and heavier.

I have owned one of these tripods for a few years now, although I do not take it out with me for wildlife photography, as I use a 5 series Gitzo for that.I use it mainly inside or in the garden for mostly macro and also a few portraits.
