            Bought this to use with a Panasonic AG-AC90 we bought at the same time. Our church is new to video, & this tripod works great with the camera. Even for a novice like me, it is smooth & stable.

            Used for video taping of Church services
            Best thing about it would be the price point
            Disliked no telescopic head
            Twin handles are very short
            Head a little sticky on subtle vertical moves

                Comments about Dracast DVT Pro - 1 Video Tripod with Fluid Head:

                Everything arrived perfectly packed, is a tri[od and it does what it is supposed to, for the price it seems pretty sturdy and the head works well (it could be smoother, but then again you could also pay $5000) some of the parts seem cheap but are replaceable I.e. crank for tilt is cheap plastic and doesn't work well but it can be replaced...

                  Comments about Dracast DVT Pro - 1 Video Tripod with Fluid Head:

                  This is a heavy, but stable tripod. It is good value for money and comes with a bag. It folds quite small and the dual handle grips are a bonus.I will be using it for a locked-off wide angle, but it does have a smooth movement to the head. I would recommend this as an in-between amature and pro or business video use. Great if you don't have the budget for the pro gear.

                      I bought this product 2 months ago and I love it. It is smooth and easy to handle. I've been trying to find something like this for a long time, finally got this from B&H (as always). This is probablly the best pro video tripod that you can find under $300.

                        Used under Sony HXR-NX5U NXCAM for livestreaming athletic events. Stable, locks down tight. The panning is smooth, which is a must for the main camera shooting basktball games for live broadcast. Just heavy-duty enough to be sturdy, just light enough to make carrying tolerable. Leveler works great. Double handles accomodates hand-preference in panning and/or tilting camera.
