I was looking for a heavy tripod for a large telephoto camera lens, but didn't have a large pile of funds to purchase one. When I received this unit I put a 1/4 inch aluminum plate on top and a couple of spacers to raise the mount above the 5/8 stud. Then put a cut off 3/8 bolt inside the hollow center of the original mounting stud to attach a gimbal head. I have been out a couple of times to photograph some local swans in a breeze, so far it appears to be pretty stabil. I painted the orange, flat black and mounted a hardware store dual level on the plate. I have approximately $80 in it not including the gimbal mount.
very well made, I bought it for a telescope, much easier to set up and much stabler than the one that came with the telescope.
This tripod has everything you need to get to work. The quick clamp legs adjust easily and stay where you set them. This is an inexpensive tripod that I would not use for everyday use on a construction site, as I do not believe it would hold up to heavy use. But for a small project and with care, this will hold up for many years of use. Great for occasional use. As with all tools, take care of you tools and they will last..., throw this item in the back for you truck and the clamped legs will likely break off.
