    I needed a lightweight tripod since traveling with photographic equipments through air carriers have become a nightmare for the photographers. I picked up the AKB Tripod kit that is durable and light, easy to use and clean. It may not be the best equipment to shoot photos in a very windy day but it came with a joint to hang a bag to enhance stability. I am happy with it.

    I use this with a 50D and a 28-70L lens, Ball will not hold it in portrait position. Gets some shake if there is any breeze, this could be caused by lens hood also. Use this for hiking and waterfall photos. I did not get to try it with any weight hanging from the center, but will try that next time to see if it helps.

      Comments about Induro Adventure AKB Tripod Kit:

      I do a lot of hiking and backpacking and I normally use a Velbon carbon fiber tripod which is really very good. However when I travel it's too large to fit into my suitcase. I needed a good, smaller rig.

      This fills the bill very nicely. The tripod is rock solid..at least as much as something this small could be. It extends high enough that I can use my viewfinder also. I bought the accessory short center column as well and the tripod will sit very low indeed. If you need small and light, I think this one is hard to beat.

        Comments about Induro Adventure AKB Tripod Kit:

        I needed a cheapish sturdy but lightweight tripod for night photography. B & H advise came up with this product. It has a great carry case whch can be carried over shoulder. It took a 1Dx witha a small lens but was maybe not quite up to the 70-200 when fitted in quite blowy conditions. But for a versatile travel tripod I would give this a big thumbs up.

          This versatile tripod is so easy to carry along - it folds down to a compact size and is lightweight. Mine came with a nice carrying case that has a comfortable shoulder strap. The legs extend very smoothly, and adjustments are plentiful, and easy to operate. I am a macro photographer, and I love that the center column reverses for low-to-the-ground shots.

            Comments about Induro Adventure AKB Tripod Kit:

            I wanted a lightweight but reasonably sturdy tripod for taking along on outings. This tripod has worked well so far, and the carrying case is great. It's not rock solid in every situation, but does well enough considering the size, weight and price. The only time it hasn't been solid enough is with the center column extended, and moved a little when pressing the shutter release. A cable release solves this, or using the self-timer to allow the motion to stop before the shutter releases.

            Comments about Induro Adventure AKB Tripod Kit:

            I was surprised by how sturdy this was, given how light it is. In it's included carrying case, I can sling it over my shoulder and drop my camera bag in my scooter's basket and get somewhere with minimal gear in no time.

            For the price, the head is fine. Full range and great for portrait shots.

            Not ideal in windy conditions for long exposures if it's extended all the way out.

            Great for hikes and moving around and when packing a ton of gear is not realistic.

              Unbelievably lightweight compared to my old Gitzo tripod, this Induro is a pleasure to haul around and use. It is well constructed and easy to use. The hook at the bottom of the center post works well for hanging a center weight which helps with stability when necessary.

                    This is one lean and easy to use tripod. With a weight of 2.6 lbs and load capacity of 10.3 lbs this is the tripod I will take on my trips.My previous tripod was great but with a weight of more then 6 pounds it was not portable at all.This tripod is always strapped to my camera back pack and goes with me wherever I go.As the tripod is light it is effected by wind, this issue can be remedied by using the hook at the bottom of the main column - hanging the back pack itself from the hook adds the needed weight that gives the added stability.The included head allows for quick adjustment and locks firmly to hold the camera in the angle of your choice.

                            Not only is this a great tripod, it is lightweight, inexpensive, and sturdy.

                            This tripod is a great travel tripod: solid, light, reasonably priced. Wish it were a little taller, but coming from a cheap kid... this tripod gives great bang for the buck.

                              I was looking for a tripod that would support a Nikon D7000 sometimes with a heavy lens on it. This tripod is sturdy, adjusts easily in height and I like that I can release the camera with the flip of a switch.

                                It's light, compact, fits into my roll-on yet has it's own carrying case. Flip locks on the legs are fast and easy. Quik release plate works well. I like the extra lock to make it more secure. Ball head gives versatile movement. Works well high and low. The B & H salesman was extremely helpful in discerning my needs and informing and helping me.
