A very good, sturdy tripod of high quality workmanship.
Being a semi-professional photographer, I wanted to purchase a sturdy tripod that I knew would be safe to mount my cameras on without worry of a gust of wind catching me off guard and blowing it over. This tripod is by far a tripod which is easy to set up and easy to manipulate to the size you need for your cameras. Using it for Digital SLR cameras may be a bit of overkill since it is rated to hold cameras up to 18 pounds, but I would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to setting a camera on a tripod. The handles are much larger than smaller tripods, but the fluid head is really great. I highly recommend this tripod to anyone looking for a good tripod. Again Cameta Camera delivers to goods.
