Product Highlights
  • 77" Maximum Height
  • Supports Up to 13.2 lb
  • Geared Center Column
  • Center Brace for Stability

  • Bubble on Head
  • Fluid Head with Dual Handles

The Zeikos 77" 3-Section Heavy-Duty Aluminum Photo & Video Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head is an affordable camera support system will help you capture clear, crisp photos but could also shine as a support for shooting video as well. With a load capacity of 13.2 lb, you'll be able to attach just about any compact camcorder or digital camera – even a DSLR with a telephoto lens. Featuring 3-section aluminum legs that reach a very tall maximum height of 77", the tripod is topped off by a true fluid pan head with dual control handles.

The legs feature pro foam grips and flip locks for fast, secure adjustments to tripod height. The geared center column enables precise adjustments to height, and the center brace enhances the system's overall stability.

The 3-way pan head features a quick-release mechanism that includes a camera plate, and there's a built-in bubble for precise leveling. Dual handles enable you to make smooth, precise movements in one dimension only with the fluid head, which is key for shooting video. The head swivels a full 360°.

        Comments about Zeikos 77" 3-Section Heavy-Duty Aluminum Photo & Video Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

        It is not like the old metal ones; nevertheless, it is sturdy. The fluid head is smooth, but it has the tendency to work itself loose every now and then (easily fixed). Also, having a tripod with a reach over six feet is very useful.

        I knocked off one star for two reasons. The first is because the head comes loose every now and then (as I said it is easily fixed). The second reason for the 4 out of 5 is because the attachments for the strap broke at both ends while I had the tripod around my shoulders. This was during normal use. Bummer.

        For the money … I don't see why I would return it. Good deal.

          Comments about Zeikos 77" 3-Section Heavy-Duty Aluminum Photo & Video Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

          I have a bogen fluid head for my primary video camera but mount a small unmanned camera on the Zeikos for live performances. The height is great for getting high angle shot above the audience. It feels solid and stable and I like the bag it comes with. The pan head is smooth. This seems great for SLRs and small camcorders but I wouldn't recommend for larger video cameras.

              Needed a good, rugged and tall tripod. This one has all the goods. Only downside is that the allen wrench did not fit the pan mount head to tighten it down.

                Comments about Zeikos 77" 3-Section Heavy-Duty Aluminum Photo & Video Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

                After toting around a cheap, short and somewhat wobbly tripod for a few years I finally got fed up and bought this beast. Am I ever happy I did. My first trip out with it was at night and I had minor difficulties setting it up as I couldn't see very well and my flashlight had died (I literally took it out of the box while in the car on route to our location) but it is simple as can be once you can see what you're doing.While it is a few extra pounds to tote around so far it has withstood several trips urban exploring and getting bashed about on stairways, railings and standing in questionable substances.The right to left panning head is nice and smooth, easy to adjust but a little tight to lock in place. Since I mostly use a remote trigger this isn't a huge issue for me. The tilt and up-down pans are also very smooth and lock into place very well with no delayed reflex like my old cheap tripod. Where you point your camera is where your camera will stay. Given the weight it is also a very stable, it'll take a good strong wind to shake this tripod as I learned the other night attempting to take some storm photos. The footing of this tripod doesn't look like much, but I have not had it slip or move even with people bumping into it.This is also an excellent tripod for those of us who are a little on the taller side, no more huddling hunched over unless that is what the shot calls for. The utility hook is also nice for keeping my gear bag off the floor which is sometimes covered in the aforementioned questionable substances.It comes with a carry case that is just a shade over large and I count that as a convience, makes it easier to pack away and with the pocket on it I find I can tote a few extra babules that my gear bag no longer has the room for.Overall for the price I would say I got a little more tripod than I was expecting, and I am very happy about that.

                  After seeing this particular tripod recommended on the B&H facebook discussion I decided to give it a shot. I have to say for as inexpensive as this it is a workhorse. Love the 3-way pan head and love how compact it is the case makes it easy breezy to carry. I also totally appreciate the leveling system on this tripod. Highly recommend this tripod.

                    Comments about Zeikos 77" 3-Section Heavy-Duty Aluminum Photo & Video Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head:

                    I love this tripod. I'm going to use it for video at church (and nature photography). With the height you can get video over a crowd.

                    One con is that it is not designed well for panning. The head is on a bolt. If the head is screwed on all the way, you can't pan to the right, and a pan left is rough. As a solution, you can loosen it first by a full rotation left prior to your panning.

                      very stable and light wait, but i think it is not so durable like a expensive manfroto, but im using it hard, and it is in great conditions.
