This is a pretty good tripod. It is certainly very light and rather sturdy. Compared to my more expensive CF tripod, I find this tripod to be more versatile. I like that it has rotating locks on the legs which is especially helpful in cooler weather when I am using it with gloves. For normal photography work, it's weight (or lack thereof) makes it very easy to tote this thing around.I do have two issues with it, however, that make it less than ideal for true professional work:-This first is the ballhead which drifts when you tighten it. In real estate work getting the head lined up for ideal framing is crucial. But, then when you lock it in you find that the framing has shifted. I have observed this every single time I have tightened the ballhead. I do want to point out that this behavior is not unique to this tripod. My significantly more expensive CF tripod also has this problem and it is one I wish I knew about before buying any tripod. But, oh well. I make it work.-The second is the curious choice of using a friction knob as the mechanism for locking the mounting plate. I imagine this was done to save cost but it is a bad idea. Basically, you have friction knobs both to lock the ballhead and to secure the mounting plate. These two knobs are only an inch or so apart. So, when you are focused on framing your shot and you think you are loosening the ballhead to reposition the camera there is a slight chance that you are indeed losing the mounting plate as well. If your camera is tilted downward when you mistakenly loosen the mounting plate you better hope your reflexes are good because your camera will come loose.These two issues aside, I find that I use this tripod for the majority of my work because it is so light. I have learned to account for its design deficiencies.

No untruths from seller. Stellar tripod package. More manufacturers should take notice and follow suit to keep up. This is a bit larger than my MeFoto but it grows to a hight I can photograph from without breaking my back. I'm 5'8" tall and this tripod is wonderful. Light weight, short center post if needed and mostly a wonderful tripod to lug, set-up, snap a photo, move and repeat. It handles my Fuji and my Canon gear. No complaints at this time. More as time marches on.

I bought this to stay stable in the New Mexico spring winds, and it does that well. Nice and solid, a definite step-up from entry-level aluminum tripods. Not quite as light as my current portable aluminum tripod (but close) but it is a quantum jump in stability. Legs adjust well, locks are smooth and easy to turn. Reversing the column for close to the ground shots just requires unscrewing the head, reversing the column, and putting the head back on. One leg detaches to be a monopod -- just unscrew it and the head screws right into that spot. There is a small bubble level in the head.Cons: The head is so-so. In particular, very stiff in rotation. It may be better with time, but right now it's not going to work if you intend to pan with the camera -- you would have to put enough force on it to tip the whole thing over. Also, I wish their was a lever option for the quick-release along with the knob.

Very light and solid. I messed up one of the clamps and lost one of the pieces. Customer service sent me a new part, no charge.

I was expecting something a little more beefier. But will do for its intended purpose, low angle shooting

El tripode tiene buena calidad, y es bastante estable.La cabeza no aguanta mucho peso, con mi 70-200 ya se mueve.

I enjoy using this Carbon fiber tripod, it is very stable up to 32inches when used with my 150 to 600 Tamron lens, above this height it is a bit unstable but if I use it with a remote control on my Nikon D300S I have very good result. It is a very good buy for the price and I recommend this Tripod to everybody locking for an excellent Carbon Tripod at a reasonable price.
