Great product but It stucks

This tripod has been good, the materials seens to be good for the price. Some pieces are plastic. The safes of the legs get stuck, you have to be careful because it seens those are not so strong pieces, you could broke it. The head moves nice.

Just My "OH-2"

As most have said this is a very solidly constructed tripod. You may have to as previously mentioned in other reviews need to loosen some of the screws with the included hex/alan wrench. The wrench as well as the extra mount are located in a zippered compartment inside of the included carrying bag which I discovered by accident :) but just so no one else is looking inside the box/packaging. Of course this tripod is NOT on par with the other "higher end" tripods so I'm NOT sure why anyone would even want to compare the two (Apples/Oranges). For the money and for beginners/intermediates this tripod should do what you need/want it to do. The only "real" noticeable issue I had was locking the plate into place with my camera which is the Canon XHA1s, when turning the knob to secure the mount to the tripod with the camera attached the knob will not clear unless you pull the knob outward and clockwise at the same time, not a major issue but just FYI. I also use this tripod with the Tiffen Dolly which makes this tripod even better. Happy & Steady Shooting!


Five Stars

This is just a super tripod.


Love the Fluid Head

WOW! This tripod has a killer smooth head. I also have a MAnfrotto and the head is not near as good as this one. I would highly recommend this tripod to any videographer.
