I chose this while looking for a light tripod. Being cheap, I wasn't expecting a lot, so I am not terribly disappointed.The good: it's really light, and it folds small.The bad: panning is almost impossible because the head is not really fluid... it's way too stiff.
It is wonderfully light in weight, a real plus for travel, and is easy to carry around on a shoot. It is just right for a small consumer camcorder such as my Canon Vixia. The legs are a snap to extend and retract in run 'n' gun situations.
This is a terrific little tripod for times when you are just wandering around with a small camera. Quick setup and take-down. Lightweight to move around and shoot with. Light enough to keep it attached while you shoot hand-held, or use as a stabilizer / brace. Great value.
The tripod is very smooth and sturdy enough for most situations. It is very lightweight which is a good and bad thing. It's so light that you need to keep one hand on the stand while using the other to point the camera.
It does the job for a lightweight tri-pod for a DSLR. But I don't think it's sturdy enough for a larger camera. I was surprised it didn't have a leveling knob at the bottom of the center shaft. Apparently you are supposed to level the tri-pod by adjusting the legs. Hard to do without assistance.
I expected to hundreds for a smooth motion tripod, but the Videomate 438 Aluminum Tripod suprised me with it's smooth motion. It's a great tripod, especially for lightweight cameras.
I use this when I am moving around a lot and shooting on a small video camera (Canon XA-10). This tripod is great because it is so light and (for the money) functional. It is fairly quick to set up. It also works great hand-held (giving extra stability by bracing with your body and or both arms).
I've owned this for a couple days now. It works great with just my T3i and a Rode Mic Pro. Haven't tried anything heavier yet. One thing I don't love about it is the amount of resistance for panning is more than you get when tilting when they're both totally loose.
I use this with my Canon SX 50, Nikon P500 and Sony Hx 300. It works fine with these lightweight cameras, probably not so much with a DSLR. I have no use of my left arm. This quick release head is the only that I have found that can be operated with one hand.
very light , portable
