Extremely nice tripod!
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is definitely a very nice tripod. It is pretty light for as sturdy as it is. The head on it supports my Nikon D90 with battery grip and a 105mm micro lens (which is pretty heavy) with no sagging after tightening it down. It stays right where I was pointing it when I tighten the head down. This is my first quick release tripod, so obviously that option is a huge bonus. The legs are very nice, at the top there are notches in the legs and metal pull down stops. You push the stops up and the legs will swing all the way out like the flat picture for close ups. You can swing the legs out at two other different stops as well and then pull the metal stops down to "lock" in the legs to keep them all at the same angles. All around, a great tripod.
