Excellent and awesome product. Build quality is very good and finishing is excellent too. Don't go for the negative reviews. I have Nikon D3400 and this one holds it very well. Not shaking or shivering, but don't ever compare it with professional tripods. For amateur and beginners it is perfectly okay. Just go for it blindly. Though the end pieces seem to be flimsy, but it does its job pretty well. It can also be extended above 6 feet. Totally VFM and very much satisfied with the purchase. Thanks Amazon
The best tripod at this price. Never got a chance to complain as per to the quality of this product. I am a filmmaker and I also travel a lot so, I needed something portable and durable. So , indeed I did some research and I came across many tripod but this was not listed in that. I thought this tripod will be a good investment and I bought it without any questions. Again an excellent service by Amazon I got this particular item just in two days!! It was nice packaged and when I opened it. There was a nice sling bag inside which was the tripod. At first having the tripod in my hand felt professional and sturdy. Now I use my heavy DSLR with a rig with is really heavy to keep steady. And this chap handles it without any problem. Everything works just fine. Pros - 1. It has a good load capacity 5-6kg 2. It is really sturdy 3. Easy to carry 4. Smooth pan head Cons - 1. It' s a bit heavy for travelling 2. Extending handle is flimsy Nothing more to say about it. Just go for it!
Just received the tripod today. I never expected the tripod to be heavy as it is. Though the weight proves a durable material used and stability it would give, but carrying it for trips will be questioning.
Cons The clips for tilting its legs are kind of lose and tricky to adjust. I personally dont like the screw system locking of legs, i prefer clips which are quick to operate. The level indicator should also be on the collar area. The given indicator could be of no use if the tripod is in tilted arrangement. The Monopod arrangement could be of very little use because the actual Monopods still has some supporting mini legs at the foot which this doesn't have.
Pros The ball head is very smooth and steady, the knobs are also of very goodquality. I have seen reviews of other imported tripods of similar features and weight ratios which are of more than double its price hence this is definitely the best choice among its competitors when price is compared to features, although their quality I am sure of because I have not yet used or even seen the imported one (manfrotto, vanguard, k&f concept, benro, etc), but considering their weight they must not have been made of carbon fibre, hence this one is very good to go with. It like the Oneplus6 vs the iPhone. If u have enough money, go with the imported one, especially I like vanguard Alta pro 2+.
Amazing infact the best tripod you can get under 5K hands down. The Quality is way too good for what you pay, a lil heavy as it will be a burden if you're a landscape photographer and would like to take it with you along your bagpack. I mounted my ronin S on the top of the tripod and it held it steadily. The base of the three legs has three options either you go full rubber, full metal(Pointy metal for mud and all) or you go both. Also it can be turned into a monopod but i am yet to figure out it. If you've read this long about my review i would like you to think no more and just hit the buy button.
Hi all Prices fluctuates so if u get a best offer you should buy this product .
It can be directly fitted on the tripod using release plate thread on tripod ..But see to it that the thread u have is big one , as the female thread you get is bigger than 1/4 inch so do buy a thread convertor from Amazon . Other than that it works and u take smooth videos using this mount ... Don't expect high fluid movement u get from high brand product but as per the price it does it works.. Material used goodquality plastic material with metal usage ...grip is really good and for my purpose it worked fine and happy with it.
Mind blowing product at such an amazing price. The tripod was very well packed and the delivery was on time. Tripod quality is very good considering the price and it does the job well. The mechanism is very simple and the parts aren't fragile,It's sturdy enough to carry a DSLR, I have mounted my Canon 77D with 18-135mm lens and it worked pretty well even while panning didn't face any disturbance. The extension height of the tripod is pretty decent. Worth buying!!
Got this tripod for my RX 100 series camera. Rx100 series cameras are small cameras and weigh 300gms, so please keep this in mind while reading the rest of my review. I mean, heavier cameras + large lenses with this tripod can lead to completely different experiences. The tripod itself looks durable and well built, and comes with accessories to convert it into a monopod/Top view arm tripod. Reduced one star because the arm doesnt make a perfect 90 degree angle with stand/Isn't very parallel to ground, even without any camera/weight on the ball head. And this tripod didn't come with a manual. I recommend getting this tripod from prime seller 'GadgetZone2019' who has good ratings, I did the mistake getting the tripod from another seller.
But apart from that: On opening the parcel, I got a branded digitek cardboard box with the tripod, a small extension arm, a screw-bolt to convert tripod to monopod, a small extension rod and a screw-remover to tighten the legs, which won't be usually needed. And a neat goodquality carrying bag to carry the tripod in. (The bag quality was good, but had some cut damage- Another reason I recommend buying from the most highly rated seller available).
The tripod itself is tall enough for most uses. It goes as tall as 6.2FT fully extended, without any extension rod. The extension rod adds a couple of inches, too. Though this tripod will occupy a lot of space - A LOT - if all legs are fully opened and stretched - Making use of this tripod in small rooms very hard.
The tripod comes with a metal build quick release plate attached on the top of the ball head - Not sure if this is standard size, so please ensure you don't lose it since doing that will make your tripod unusable. I dont see digitek selling them separately.
The tripod has a fluid head in two places - one below ball head and another at base of horizontal arm - which you can use for panning. Tilting for photos is great, but for videos, it is almost impossible with this tripod, since ball head isn't exactly designed for that. Though you can get a pan and tilt head separately and attach with this same tripod for shooting videos.
The horizontal arm on this tripod is really good and can be used for tabletop shooting, making cooking videos etc. I couldn't find another horizontal arm tripod in this price range, and this tripod happens to be so sturdily built that you don't need to think twice before getting this.
The tripod legs can be locked at three angles, but happens with help of plastic assembly. Goodquality plastic, but still gets me to doubt what happens if one of the locking switches break. Sturdily built, nevertheless.
All inbuilt extensions can be extended by rotating clockwise to lock and anticlockwise to unlock. This gives unlimited flexibility on the extension of legs, making it suitable for say extending two legs halfway to place on bed and one on ground, fully extended. I save myself some room by doing that.
I tried hitting the tripod from quite a few angles to see if it falls for my setup, and I request you to do that too, just to ensure that the tripod doesn't fall off and damage my camera. After ensuring my setup is stable and checking the tripod legs for full lock, I mount my small point and shoot.
Overall, its a great beginner tripod with a hefty but worth-it price tag. If you have an expensive camera, you wouldn't want a 3K tripod ruin your capabilities, right? Get this one and you won't regret. Being able to use a tripod as a tripod, monopod as well as a horizontal arm over-the-table tripod, can't get better than this.
Didn't like the finishing at all. Too much mix n match of plastic of different quality. Works well ans i won't return it just because this price is good even if compared with open market. Usability is fine for the price.
I was searching for a ball head sturdy tripod for long time. Below is my take on this tripod - 1. Great features 2. Good weight capability 3. Compact and light weight 4. Great ball + fluid head 5. Sturdy 6. Can be used one leg as monopod
Packaging was great, although it came inside a very big size carton box! Bought this for traveling purpose. At this price point this one is great. Good Build quality. Pan head is smooth enough for video shooting. I loaded nikon D750 with 50 and 85 mm lens and it worked fine. But in case of Full extension length it quite unstable. Better you use light weight DSLRs. Using my another camera Nikon D5300 with kit lens there is no issue. It's really value for money. Its not a pro model, but a good choice for beginners.
