A full complement of advanced features includes three-position multi-angle legs, a bubble level on the tripod collar and a pivoting centre column. The pistol grip head is more unusual, with a trigger action to release the clamp and enable positional adjustments.

  • +

    Legs boast advanced features that are quick and easy to use, Well implemented 180 degree centre column pivot facility, Very good build quality ensures stability

  • -

    Pistol grip head lacks firm clamping action and is fiddly to use, AGH kit isn't much of a money-saver, Tension adjustments have cross-head screws instead of allen key screws

PROS: Compact, sturdy and looks very durable. The center column is very versatile and helpful, especially if you look macro or from unusual angles. CONS: The handle of the gun is a little hard to press and the tripod is heavier than I expected.

This a fantastic, heavy duty tripod. The center column turning into an extension for macro photography saves money. The pistol grip also saves money on a gimbel head. The legs extend easily, and can being able to remove the center column means the tripod can get very close to the ground.
