I bought this this tripod for macro work using a small Olympus macro lens and for short day hiking trips, but to my surprise, it supports my OMD M-1 with my heavy 40-150 zoom lens mounted. Amazing! I gave it four stars because it's new. Time may tell a different story.

This was the most compact tripod I could find that would support a DSLR with a kit lens. Based on use, I believe it could support a DSLR with a heavier lens as well (even a little beyond the stated 3.3 lbs capacity).

I was unsure about whether or not this tripod would support my Sony a7ii with the huge 14mm Rokinon lens that I'm using, but it did not disappoint. I needed something lightweight and small for backpacking and this is perfect.

This tripod is just what I was looking for. It's well made for the price, and I like the fact it doesn't use a tripod plate to attach to the camera. Instead, the wheel is very quick to thread the tripod to your camera. The carrying case is a nice added touch.

I wasn't sure if I really even needed this but I'm so glad I bought it! It's seriously the best tripod ever. It's light weight, sturdy and the height adjustments are great too. I recommend this one to everyone who needs a high quality tripod!

This item is very light and more balanced than my thought. I have not used the tripod outside yet. But I believe it will work well.

I was replacing my Manfrotto Tripod, because of broken leg. I assume that I was purchasing the same tripod. Instead I purchase a better and lighter model. It is so light and easy to use, I want to take it with me more.
