Takeaway: Durable, lightweight, smooth pan/tilt, easy to use.

The tripod comes in a thin nylon bag with a simple drawstring with plastic cinch. It measures about 19” when retracted and has three separate telescoping sections on the legs with quick release leg locks for adjusting the lengths. At the top of each leg is a neoprene handle grip and in the center of the legs is the leg angle lock that allows you to expand the tripod.

When the legs are fully extended the tripod height is about 40 inches. If you extend the center column can increase the final height to about 4.5 feet. The center column handle rotates easily but ratchets stiffly due to the plastic gears. The mounting plate on top has a quick release lever and on the bottom of the foot plate, you can adjust the mounting screw tightener to attach the foot plate to your camera. The pan handle measures about 6.5 inches which gives you plenty of leverage to tilts and pans smoothly. The motion of the pan and tilt are fluid with no jerkiness or stuttering. The side tilt screw allows you to rotate the camera 90 degrees for portrait shots and everything in between.

Just below the pan head, there’s a small bubble level to help you make sure the tripod is level when setting it on uneven ground. Lastly, there’s a counterweight hook in the center of the tripod where you can attach a weight like a sand/bean bag to help keep your tripod stable while you use it, so that is doesn’t move around or worse, fall over with your camera on it. This tripod is constructed from a lightweight yet decently durable aluminum alloy and comes in a variety of bright, bold colors but you can get black too. It works great for stabilizing your shoots for both photos or videos.
