New to photography and tripods. I have a very small, lightweight dSLR, but I think this tripod would be fine for a larger camera. It seems well built and full of features, but seems it could be a bit wobbly, as the legs are flexible.
The item is not of the best grade but for the price I cannot complain at all. Anyone purchasing this expecting a high grade item needs to really sit back a moment and think. As with anything and camera equipment more so, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a cheap easy to use back up tripod with no frills. You will find what you want here at a great price. Looking for a high grade tripod with sturdy build materials and a fluid head mount? Spend more. For the price, this was great. Just know what you are paying for so you wont be disappointed.
I bought this lens several months ago and use it a lot. Its fairly sturdy and well built, super compact for it's focal range, and surprisingly fast. However, stabilization is almost necessary for a lens of this length if you are shooting with any lack of light. Its tough to track animals with and not get a little blur even with fast shutter. The biggest issues I have are with chromatic aberration and sharpness however. The lens is not very sharp in the details which is a bummer if you want to crop AT ALL and use the photos for anything other than social media. ALWAYS shoot in raw because this lens produces a ton of aberration, most apparent in cloudy conditions for some reason (per my observation). Over all a great deal for the price, but maybe not a great option for everyone. I will look to upgrade soon.
