Sturdy tripod!

This is a sturdy tripod, easy to adjust, safe to use and it's lightweight yet durable.


muy bueno

muy buena construccion, de aluminio, liviano y estable, yo lo he utlizado con una canon 650d con lente 55-250, agregandole un opco de peso en el gancho de abajo y no he tenido ningun problema pese a que habia bastante viento.

Christmas present

For my grandchildren, it was a great gift for the price. I also purchased the Telestar binoculars to go with it. Awesome gift to learn with.

Great throw around travel tripod

It's a perfect travel cheap tripod. Folds up throw it in the back of my car and keep it there. Perfect for my go pro and small cameras.
