Love at first sight!!
on 28 June 2013
I still cant believe it can be so tiny (40 cm) and tall enough even for me. (I'm about 6/4-6/5)
It is brilliantly designed and even with the carry case fits in a backpack (if you don't or can't ((airplane)) want to carry separately)
Feels strong and sturdy enough for any camera lens combo.
The built in monopod is great when you can't use a tripod. (because of restrictions or lack of space)
Just leave the rest in your bag and voila you got long exposure support and no one can complain.
The ball head works fine and got 3 built in spirit levels.
You can move the camera in to any angle and tighten one locking knob.
But you also got another locking knob just for panning.
In case if you got the camera in right position and you just want to do 360 vid or make a panoramic pic.
You get an extra (shorter) center column for the monopod use i guess and to get the lowest position when the camera facing upwards. I don't think that I will use it because it is easier to make the monopod shorter (collapse one section) or turn the column upside down than to change the ball head on the center columns. But it's nice to have it as an option and fits in to the case.
You also got a few Allen keys coming with the tripod. So you can tighten or dismantle all the parts easily.
The locking system of the legs are fast and easy to use. Twist (open) and twist (locked).
That's one of the reasons why I chose this over the Manfrotto tripods.
legs got screw in rubber feet that can be changed to rubber feet with spike but those does not come with the kit.
All in all I could not be happier with this purchase.
Amazon as always made my day with the fast and trackable delivery.
If you want to invest in to a good tripod I definitely recommend it!
Don't buy cheap crap because you going to end up spending more and more and finally you going to buy the quality one anyway.
(and cheap ones not as cheap as the build quality of them)
