            It is what it is...

            It holds my tripod head down low like it's supposed to...

            Tough enough to travel without putting it in a case!

                  I use this to mount a 100mm tripod head and camera system. Its pretty standard, and simple. Good use of the money.

                  Comments about Birns & Sawyer Hi-Hat with 100mm Bowl:

                  Hi Hats are great for getting low angle shots, and this one works very well just for that.
                  It is very simple, but thats what you need for a hi hat. It's strong enough to sit on so it will hold all the weight you need. It also has holes on the legs for anchoring it to a platform for a wider support.

                      I bolted this to a 12x12 piece of plywood for a nice low - or high camera mount. I use this down on the ground - or clamped to a ladder.

                            This is a piece of equipment that is very versatile in use and well built. I use it on a slider, on a ladder, in cars and just about anywhere I can't use a tripod.
                            I use it with a 75mm bowl adapter. I sometimes rent different heads for different cameras and like to be versatile as well.

                                  We have bowls by other manufacturers that didn't bother to center the holes on the feet or have consistent distance between the mounting holes. This one was better. couldn't give a 5-stars because we purchased only one and couldn't verify consistency of production.

                                      Pretty straightforward and solid hi-hat. I've used others with collapsing legs and don't like them or thin they're as sturdy.
