Amazing little device!
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This little gem packs up small enough to fit into a daybag backpack, yet unfolds high enough to hold my 5D-II with a 70-200 L-series lens on it. I bought it for a trip to Europe in September 2013, (which is still in the planning stages) but I expect great things from it. I've used it around town where I live with great results. I absolutely endorsed this product. It's ingenious design is strong, robust, and sturdy. It was a tad spendy, but you really do get what you pay for. 5 stars for sure.
Pros: Folds down to very small for its fully extended height. Strong enough for my DSLR and telephoto lens. Works well for macro shots also. Excellent design and engineering
Cons: I have found nothing wrong with this tripod, altought it was a bit more expensive than I thought I was going to have to spend on a travel tripod. But, it works, it does the job.
