      Comments about Cartoni F126 FocusHD System:

      This is probably the best tripod I have purchased. Smooth pans and tilts,the tripod is light weight and it looks like it was made from quality materials. Able to handle up to 26 pounds is also a great feature. The camera head is perfect for my eng camera.i would recommend this product as a great tripod and priced reasonably.,plus it comes with a nice carrying case.tThe only con is too many plastic parts.

        Comments about Cartoni F126 FocusHD System:

        Been a great system for the price so far, haven't put it under any extreme circumstances yet though. There is a decent amount of grease that will come off with time, but so far that's the biggest downside. The case included was a nice surprise, though not the most ergonomic while carrying other equipment on a one man shoot. Overall, the tripod is solid, and the fluid head is very smooth.

          The head is wonderful and the system is very easy and quick to use. The only downfall to a single stage sticks is that they don't go very low. But easy enough to deal with.

            Good fluid head tripod for the price. Excellent balance, and drag controls. My only gripe is that the tripod did not come with instructions on how to set up the balance. I was able to find the instructions on-line fairly quickly, but wished the instructions were included.
