"Why did you choose this product?"
It appears my tripod arrived broken, the head that is supposed to attach to the legs has nothing to hold the camera on to the tripod. There is either a bolt missing or the part between the head and legs has broken apart and can’t be fixed. Once this is repaired or a new one is sent it looks very sturdy and very well built...

What a deal. Sturdy as much costlier tripods
I have purchaced the Barska for myself and more than a dozen photographers I work with. We use it for volume portrait photography. The simi-fluid head works great if you add a Bogen flip bracket for vertical/horizontal work. The handle kind of gets in my way so I remove it. The final result is a super quick to adjust head that stays where you put it.Read More
5/5 legs, 4/5 head
5/5 legs 5/5 head* I'm primarily using this for video with a little bit of photography on the side. Normal APS-C dslr for photo, but very full video rig (~12lbs/5.5kg). Considering one of the primary uses for this is tripod is heavy hunting scopes, tripod handles my video setup like a champ. Entire tripod is fairly heavy (definitely not carbon fiber), but I much prefer solid and stable over convenience. *Very minor stick when you start but once you're moving fluid smooth. The initial stick is annoying but most of what I need to shoot with a tripod is either locked off or has starts edited out [you can't get around stick short of a true viscous fluid head (Vinten, Sachtler, etc) which are roughly a $mortgage payment$].Read More
More than One
After I purchased the first one I had to buy another. I do a lot film work professionally and non professionally. The head on this tripod is fluid and moves smoothly as it should. You don't get that always with tripods. If you are looking for a great tripod look no further.Read More
This is a super high quality Tripod. It is a little bit pricey, but worth it. This was a present for my son. We were tired of having low quality tripods that kept breaking. This has held up and is still being used.Read More
Solid, and heavy.
Without a doubt, this is a professional tripod. Quite heavy, though it does come in a sturdy, ballistic nylon carry bag. My only complaint is that it smells funny! Odd, I know, but it has a strong metallic smell. I had to move it from my office because it bothered me so much.Read More
This tripod was as described and just what I wanted. My spotting scope is heavy and this unit is strong enough to do the job. Very pleased.Read More
This tripod is a little on the heavy side. The controls to extend the legs takes a bit of effort. And there are "O rings" that a between the joints or section of the legs, to keep them from hitting together when closed. One of those "O ring" were missing, bet I didn't feel it would be worth the effort to exchange the tripod or get a replacement "O ring". But it is built well and should last many years with a little help and to keep it clean.Read More
