      Decent tripod

          Comments about Velbon CX444 Tripod W/3-Way Panhead:

          Decent tripod for the price. I would, personally, have preferred one a bit heavier as I'm not needing to haul it around, but shoot in a fixed location. My one real complaint is that it doesn't have a locking collar on the leg spreader so that you could have the option of not using the full extension of the legs. It's about 6-8" wider when open, than the 'pod it replaced, which means some readjustment in how I shoot.

            Comments about Velbon CX444 Tripod W/3-Way Panhead:

            I purchased this tripod as a gift for a young nephew who is just getting started in photography. I set up the tripod before giftwrapping it and mounted a Canon G10 on it. Everything about the tripod worked as it should and for the price I would say that it is a really good buy. I only gave it four stars because it hasn't passed the 'nephew' test yet.

              I have had it about a week and it seems very stable. A solid base for my DSLR without the huge cost of some other tripods I have researched. It is light weight and compact.

                    Comments about Velbon CX444 Tripod W/3-Way Panhead:

                    I've used this tripod for about 3 years, since this purchase replaces an identical one that was stolen. I do mostly outdoor shoots - large & small wildlife, birds, scenes, etc. I shoot almost everything from the tripod with a cable release to improve steadiness. It gives solid support for locked down shots and smooth gliding for dynamic tracking shots. I tried another design that was equally low weight, and turned it down, even for free.

                    For myself, I would be willing to carry twice as much weight in a tripod, at least for short trips; but for full day trips this is a very good size.
