Product Description

Product Description

Hahnel TRIAD 30 - HAHNEL TRIAD 30 CAMERA TRIPOD

Manufacturer's Description

Hähnel have designed the Triad 30 Lite with the new generation of SLR’s in mind.

Camera models such as the Panasonic G1 and the Olympus E-450 are now more compact and lightweight and therefore require a robust tripod with a stable construction.

The Triad 30 Lite is a professional aluminium alloy, 4-section tripod which is both lightweight and sturdy. The quick-lock, fully adjustable legs are extendable at 3 different angles and legs fold down allowing the tripod to easily fit into the carrying case supplied making this tripod extremely portable.

The Triad 30 Lite is also supplied with a quick release ball head, +90º / -90º orientation groove.

Hi,
I purchased this tripod and the first couple of times I used it I noticed that the Quick Release was loose as noted in some other reviews. It did however cause problems last week after I carried it for 3 hours on a photo walk and then it was not secure enough to allow me to use it for long exposure twilight photos.
I then scanned the reviews here and could not understand how so many users were happy with this quick release although there are a small number of reviewers with similar concerns to me.
BUT I have a solution. In my case, there is a cross-head screw at the pivot point of the lever that locks the quick release mechanism. I have tightened this screw and there is now no movement when it is locked in place.
I am now happy with the tripod, it now does what I need at a good price.

This is one of the best buys I've ever made. I couldn't imagine I was buying a tripod with such a awesome quality considering the price. I already had a cheap tripod and I can say that was metal garbish.

I received the tripod well packaged, in a black box just like the pictures, it has a nice transport bag, but nothing fancy and an allen key.

I'm really impressed with the steadiness even with the legs and central column fully extended. The ball head is very precise, it locks with just a quarter of a turn. The panoramic rotation is very precise to, you can rotate the camera very smooth, ideal for panoramic pictures but is also fine for videos. You can also turn the camera 90 degrees for portraits.
The leg locks are the only thing in plastic, but they have a good strength feel, I assume they will last for years. Everything else is magnesium alloy.

This is an ideal tripod for a small DSLR, I use it with my Fuji S1500 and a Canon EOS 300 (18-55mm).
I recommend it to everyone looking for a first good light tripod.

I ordered this 29th of January 2011. It arrived today, and it was everything I expected; nothing too shabby and the built is quite good. I only have minor experiences over tripods, but already so much that I can tell what I think of this one.

Pros:
+ the legs are sturdy, which means that they are not going to flip easily. I had to use minor force to set them up correctly. Which is great because you need to have a stable tripod for great shots.
+ the quick release lock is quite good. I attached the quicklock onto my 550D (EOS Rebel T2i), so I can swiftly attach the DSLR on top of the tripod if there will be a need to do that.
+ ball joint feels well built enough for the time being, it is precise and locks easily.
+ size and weight, only 1200 grams
+ adjustability
+ value for the money

Cons:
- legs do bend a little. I didn't try to bend them too much as I fear I would use too much force so it really would snap.
- the stableness isn't the best when the tripod is set up as high as possible (quite obvious thing), so you need either stable hands or have to use a remote controller / selftimer to get a really steady shots
- the leg clips aren't as good as I imagined. They are not as sturdy as one might want, but they lock up easily and tight.

I didn't have the time to really use the tripod in many situations YET. I will inform you guys after a months use or so, and update this review. For the time being, I couldn't be happier for my purchase. It is small in size, low in weight, cheap for what you get and great looking. I would definitely recommend this product for someone who's thinking of buying a good, cheap and light tripod. It's not the best you can get, but great value and might be the best tripod for new photographer.

I only began taking an interest in photography a few months ago and i finally decided to invest in a tripod. I had contemplated buying a much more expensive tripod than this thinking that I would have it for a good few years. I am delighted however that I took the advice of the other reviewers and went for the hahnel as it is as close to perfect for me that it gets . It is exceptionally light whilst still being incredibly sturdy, the legs have three seperate locking positions for those awkward situated shots, even though its quite light it stands up well to wind (not that I'v been out in any gales yet), the ball head seems quite sturdy and works very well with my d3100. The bag it comes with is quite handy and as the tripod is so compact and light you hardly notice carrying it around. This has been mentioned by other reviewers but my only slight reservation with this tripod is the plastic latches that lock the legs. I haven't had any bother at all with them and they seem well constucted out of thick plastic but in a few years who knows, of course im aware that with the use this will be getting a few years use will be fantastic. Overall the tripod is an exceptional quality for an absolute bargain and I would reccomend it to anyone interested in a quality tripod.

When I initially received the tripod I was a bit bemused - its quite a lot smaller than I imagined. At first I was worried that the slim legs would be easily bendable and flimsy. The truth is quite the opposite - the metal (aluminium magnesium alloy) is very dense and strong, making the whole thing a good bit heavier than you'd think. This is only good though - its a compact, portable tripod, but is strong and very sturdy. The entire thing just screams quality. I've seen tripods worth twice as much that are flimsier and less sturdy than this little beauty.

The ball head action is smooth and precise and making small, minute adjustments is a breeze. The horizontal panning is also very smooth and equally as precise.

The "professional" in the title is accurate - any professional would be happy to have a compact tripod thats this quality. All in all, this tripod is amazing value for money. If Hahnel's entire product catalog is as high in quality as this, they'll be getting a lot more of my cash!
