      great value-priced tripod. Very steady, like the ball mount and quick release mechanism, but found that it can be pretty wobbly at the quick release when composing shot. The legs are straight and quick to deploy, but found that they can be a bit wobbly due to no reinforcement arms. Best part is it folds up very small and light weight! Small enough to tote on backpack. Suggested bag for this tripod is way too big, almost twice the size! Would reccomend a small size bag. My next mount will be one with reinforced legs and a grip handle for better and more precise movement.

      I got this tripod for a trip to Honduras. I didn't have the cash to get the one I wanted, but this had the features I was looking for and the right price. I was shooting a Nikon D300 with an 18-200. The tripod is lightweight and pretty sturdy. The quick release works fairly well. The only problem I ran into was that the quick release latch became loose, and I didn't have an allen wrench to tighten it back up. I could pull the camera off the ball head without undoing the quick release. However, I was able to get it adjusted and tightened and it worked great the rest of the trip. The ballhead tended to take a bit more loosening and tightening than I would have liked. Overall, I was impressed with the tripod for the price. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have the funds to get what they want just yet.

        This tripod is great and I use it for portrait Photogaphy.
        I like the head of the tripod and the easy way to go from portrait to a landscape view.
        There is not anything that I could say that is not great about this tripod.

        Comments about Sunpak 4300 Pro B Tripod with Ballhead:

        I have two 4300 B tripods and use them for smaller/lighter digital cameras. I like the height the tripod provides and the ball head seems to hold well. I especially like that the 4300 includes two release plates. The tripods are light but seem sturdy enough for smaller cameras and lenses. I would not chance using my bigger, heavier cameras and lenses because I have several Gitzo carbon fiber tripods for such use. For what I am using the 4300 B tripods, they work well and are easy to carry around.

            Not sure on durability but this thing is ultimately adjustable with leg setups. I am using for spotting scope in stand, sit, and prone positions. We shall see how it holds up. Has plastic leg clamps similar to what broke on my cheaper stand.

              When I did my research, this tripod was out of stock, I am glad I waited the ballhead is made of sturdy metal , it is very compact and is easilly attached to my to my camera bag. You can flip the ballhead the to face the base of the legs for even better storage. You can extend this tripod over six feet, and the hook allows you to attach some weight ( or your camera bag ) for even more stabillity . The ball head lock very well and the tipod holds my canon and a 250mm lens very well. Very well made I would recomend this to anyone and everyone great tripod at a good price

                Cheap, good, high tripod.
                I use it with D300s+35-70/2.8 (4.5lbs)
                ++ Included ballhead
                +++ ext quick release plate
                + built-in level
                ++Low cost
                +Lightweight

                --end of leg is not fixed strong
                -last part of telescopic leg is little flexible
                -+locks of parts of leg made from plastic and can break. But maybe plastic is good quality.

                Total:
                6+ - very good tripod.

                  There is not device to allow one to move the camera while the camera is attached to the tripod.
                  To do this you must touch the camera to move the camea right to left. I find this difficult. I never thought of this when I ordered it.

                  I like the tripod, but becasue of this I wouldn't buy it again.

                    I bought it very recently and found that the center column is missing the tension adjustment column was missing. I followed up with the manufacturer to find that this is a new design and to be honest, it is better! The center column is steady and firmly holds in it's position. In an otherwise a horrendous trip to Grand canyon and Las Vegas, the pics I took using this tripod in GC, are the only memories that surpassed the value for the money i spent on this. The 3rd leg portion is weak, but not so much to affect the snaps. I recommend this to everyone, especially to those who had to operate on low budget and is still highly passionate about the snaps they grab. It's definitely worth more than it costs! Thanks ToCAD!

                              My digital camera has a 26x zoom and that meant I needed a tripod to be able to hold it steady for those long shots. I wanted something light-weight, but with enough height that I didn't have to stoop to use it and I decided the ball head was just too much of an improvement over my old tripod's system to pass up. I love the quick release feature and that it comes with two mounting brackets. I use the second one for my binoculars. Even with the great height I can lower the tripod within a few inches of the ground for those macro shots I periodically take of the flora. [...]

                                This the second one I bought in 4 years. I travel a lot and used the first one heavily. With the ballhead off, it is about 18" tall and I can put it inside my backback instead of strapping on outside and drawing people's attention when traveling (in those infamous foreign areas).

                                It is sturdy and stable enough for my Canon Rebel level DSLR and a 18-270 zoom, even for taking the night shots.

                                In my opinion, it is a good choice at a good price.

                                        I am definitely enjoying my new tripod. It took a little while to get a hang of the 'quick release' feature but it has come in handy for sure. The entire tripod is also very versatile and accommodates any angle. I like it a lot!

                                          I use this for landscape photography, sunsets, sunrises, flowers and other macros. It's very sturdy. The ball head moves very smoothly and locks in place great.
                                          I can't get it as close to the ground as I would like, but that's the only problem I've had with it.

                                          This seems like an ok tripod the ballhead works pretty good i haven't noticed any creep. However the legs are much more of a lighweight construction than I thought they would be and are a little flimsey it should be great for a small point and shoot or dslr with a small lens but if you are planning on putting a large zoom on this I would try a different tripod I am going to give this one to my wife for her small camcorder and get myself a manfrotto soon
