Product Description

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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Quick Release - Problem fixed 15 April 2013
    Verified Purchase
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great deal, awesome quality 25 Jan 2011
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value for the price! 8 Feb 2011
    By Markus
    Verified Purchase
    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.

    + 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

    - 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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Works fine let down by poor finishing 14 Mar 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Bought this to replace a Manfrotto MKC3-P01 Compact Photo Kit - Black which, while works ok, is a little too loose and bendy for me. Looking at the good review for this Hahnel Triad 30 Lite Professional Aluminium Alloy 4-Section Tripod with 360 Quick Release Ball Head and Free Carrying Case, I decided to give it a try because the price is actually lower than the Manfrotto.

    Overall, this tripod is stiffer and therefore more stable than the Manfrotto. However it is also 200gm heavier. I suppose it should work fine as a photo tripod. I do like the quick release plate as it is slightly smaller than the Manfrotto one. The head locks "bite" strongly and holds my Pentax K-x + Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 + Samsung SEF-36PZF in place without shifting. Some said the plate is loose here but mine is super tight. It clicks to hold the camera in position when placed into the head, and the lever needs to be pushed in to be locked. Once locked, it is so tight that I had to use a lot of force to remove it.

    It comes with a leveling bubble. I feel that it is in the wrong position at the top of the 3 legs instead of at the top at the mounting plate. How do I know if the camera is level? In any case, the head do not seem to be perfectly level throughout its 360 degree spin. Speaking of spinning, it is also very tight when trying to spin it, it may loosen after some use, I will wait and see.

    The biggest disappointment is its finishing. The plastic, while seemingly strong, is very poorly finished. It has all the molding lines and sharp injection "nips" all over.
