Really solid tripod with really nice fluid head movement. If you're on the move a lot it might not be best for you. Ive had mine for a few months ( I have to re-level very often when shooting due to my work) and the knob used to loosen the bowl and re-level already feels to be wearing down.

My son is a professional in the television production industry. We gave him the tripod as a gift and he is very satisfied with it. It is very sturdy; capable of supporting the large cameras that he uses in his work.

I've been using this tripod for the past 2 years and it's very smooth. I like the carrying case , too.

I'm a cinematographer and have been using this almost daily since I got it. Absolutely great, very smooth movement, easy to transport!

Flimsy, but cheap and does the job very well. This isn't built for fieldwork, or telescoping lenses. If you're covering small events, this will work just fine.

This tripod provides some very smooth pans & tilts and is a great value as well. Works well for what I'm aiming to achieve and in budget. My biggest complaint is that the head will come loose from the sticks if you try to pan while it's locked (rather than not move at all).

Spreader on this tripod is so light and flimsy that the legs would get slightly shifted during simple camera adjustments between takes during an interview. Center of spreader does not and cannot stay 100% in the down/locked position.

I purchased to use with my Sony AX33 camcorder and I love it. I shot five sessions Saturday and the drag was smooth. While the camcorder is not a heavyweight, for what we use it for it works fine. I really liked the ease at which the quick release worked.

Is light, easy to carry and perfect for my Canon-Vixia hf G40. Very precise. Good investment!
