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 good quality. 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+.
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 good quality plastic material with metal usage ...grip is really good and for my purpose it worked fine and happy with it.
One of the best in class tripod which can be converted into a monopod. Gives you immense functionality in any situation, decent enough height, little bit heavier but comes with sturdiness . Disappointed I with the delivery experience, tripod cover bag was damaged had a small hole in it... Otherwise a good product to have under the budget of 2k
I have now been using this tripod for 4 months now and till now not a complaint about it. Its better for cinematographers I would say as it has a pan head which is very smooth and it turns into a monopod as well and a very well sturdy built. The quality of the tripod is top . Cons: The only downside is the difficulty to change it into a portrait mode as it contains a ball head rather than a pan and tilt head.
