I previously owned a Velbon tripod which was really good, so I naturally assumed this one would be good too. Unfortunately the 538 is really light duty. I should have studied the weight of the tripod, it only weighs 4 lb in the box (with the carrying case).

I use this tripod with a small HD consumer video cam with a filmmaking class of HS students. It is durable and meets all of our needs the fluid head is nice and smooth.
