The Prompter People Heavy Duty Tripod, with high-tensile heat-treated aluminum alloy construction, offers rigidity, stability, and shock-resistance. It has 3 stage adjustable legs and can support video cameras up to 30 lb (13.6 kg).

Featuring fluid cartridges, the video head of the tripod offers continuous drag control while covering a wide range of friction control down to ‘zero drag’. With an advanced drag system, the tripod ensures smooth pan and tilt control, as well as smooth stop and starts. Designed for the latest DV to broadcast cameras, it also comes with rubber/spike feet and a spreader.

The HD Tripod with pro dual pan handles is capable of operating on both pan and tilt axes with independent pan and tilt locks. Since it is built on a low profile to reduce the center of gravity, the tripod can balance heavy loads. It has a standard screw mount at the end of the center column and a Sliding Quick Release Mount for balancing the camera. In addition to a folded length of 30" (762mm), the tripod features an extended length of 72" (1828.8mm).

          Comments about Prompter People Heavy Duty Tripod:

          5 Stars for this. Purchased it for our new teleprompter and glad we did. The prompter is very heavy and this tripod is beefy enough to hold it. I highly recommend this tripod to safely support both the prompter and the camera. I've had a jib system fall due to having a lesser built tripod. I can confidently say I feel good leaving my setup on this one.

          Comments about Prompter People Heavy Duty Tripod:

          We purchased 3 of these for use in a studio environment. The camera plate is large and the capacity is great, however my initial excitement about these sticks was overcome with dissapointment when I realized the angle of the tripod arms is NOT adjustable. You can adjust them to swing out or in, but you cannot adjust how far they are from the actual tripod legs. As a result your operators will have their arms at an uncomfortble angle and you have to remove the arms to store in the bag. Also the pan and tilt tensions are not adjustable. For some this may not be a serious concern, but it was a deal breaker for us. We sent them back.

            I just dropped this tripod off at a UPS store for return. It is not as described, there is no adjustment for pan or tilt; they are preset. It is a big head tripod yet the head locks are not that strong. I'm going to try to the Manfrotto 504.

            I paired thi up with a Prompter People telepromter and it gets the job done while looking good! The adjustable legs come in handy when filming standing up or sitting down.

            I recommend buying the dolly also, because this is heavy to move around.

            Good Value

                  Comments about Prompter People Heavy Duty Tripod:

                  Good- Smooth pan/tilt, sturdy construction, two handles which can be handy if you mount it on dolly for studio work, big base plate, ability to detach bottom spreader and use spikes to plant it firmly on soil.
                  Bad- Rubber rings that keeps sticks and bottom spreader connected is too lose and actually allows whole tripod to wiggle as you pan or for spreader to detach when you pack it/unpack it. Pan and tilt drag is very hard and that might be because it's new but I have feeling it will stay like that (I actually like it to be harder to move as it gives me more stability but then rubbery feet connection comes into play). To lock tilt and pan it takes some muscle. It cannot be stored in a bag (on which shoulder strap is already broken) with handle(s) in place, they actually have to be detached. Beware this tripod has no manuals, setup guides or any explanations in a written form anywhere!
                  I got this tripod because I like sturdy feel and look and it's studio origins. overall excellent value for money!

                  Stable platform for digital camera and teleprompter. Smooth pan and tilt controlls but would have liked to have a drag lock also. Can't beat the price.
