5.0 out of 5 stars Amateur or Professional Filmmakers essential kit., 8 Nov 2008
This review is from: Konig Heavy Duty Professional Video Camera Tripod with Pro Fluid Head (Electronics)
Placed order at 8 o'clock on Monday evening. Received confirmation of payment and dispatch at 10:45 Tuesday morning. Delivered in good condition to my home address at 12:55 Thursday. That is an excellent delivery time to the Isle of Man. First class service from Netgadgets. What more can you ask?
And the Tripod - well, opening the box - no instructions? - no problem. Assembly and set up could not be simpler. Have they sent me the right tripod? Well the order said HQ, this says Konig. Ah! I see. Same thing, different label. There's two boxes, one with the tilt/pan head and one with the tripod. I just fit the two bits together. Two quick release adapter plates for rapid swapping of cameras. Check out the quality of the materials., all very robust looking. Extending the legs. Very smooth, a single turn of the knobs, locks, rock solid. Two pan handles supplied for left or right hand operation. Ball and socket adjustment of the head so you can get true horizontal pans with the aid of the multi-axis bubble level. The head itself has finger tight locking levers for the handle and adapter plate and a larger one for the tilt, all of which, when locked can, be put tidily out of the way. I also find there's a handy spring loaded hook on one of the tripod legs which I assume is to hang extra ballast bags for added stability. That's what I will use it for, anyway!
I also went for the Tripod Dolly for Professional Camera/Video/Lighting Very High Quality. Same great quality and robustness. Just flip open the two legs and they lock into position. Drop the tripod legs onto the clamps and screw up the bolts finger tight. It glides along on soft rubber castors which are fully lockable, which means you can track or lock down without having to dismount the dolly.
Both are supplied with carry bags to prevent your kit crashing about.
I have seen similar tripods for over a grand so this will be a bargain for the amateur or professional film maker on a tight budget. It would also be a great tripod for birding / digiscoping or zoom photography.
