      I have only used it twice so far but for the price I am very happy with it. Easy to setup and has no movement once locked in place. Haven't had a chance to use it yet with heavier lenses but will update once I do.

      I used this tripod all week during Thanksgiving. I took it just about everywhere we went. It worked great in the water and snow. The ball head is great and has a few different levels on it to make sure your picture is straight.

            This is a great tripod for an amateur photographer. It's light and very stable. I would definitely recommend this. I have attached a Nikon D7100 with 70-200 f/2.8 VR II and was very happy.

              Comments about Oben AC-1441 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head:

              I got this tripod trying to get a good tripod for travel or carrying during several hours. I think this is the perfect combination of weight and sturdiness I was looking for. Extended hight is more than I needed and the folded size is perfect for luggage.
              Very sturdy for my gear, set's up very easy.
              Ball head is very easy to use, it holds my camera in position nicely. I would liked a ball head that had independent lever for horizontal panning but it was over my budget.
              Bottom line, great value, great quality tripod.
              I just had it for a few weeks but seems to be durable.

                  seems to be a great tripod, very sturdy. easy to set up. took some playing with and viewing of youtube videos to figure out how to use all features for a novice photographer that hasn't worked with a lot of tripods before, but once that was figured out, it was easy to adjust. love the carrying case and bubble levels.

                        This is a very solid, sturdy tripod. I used it in downtown Pittsburgh up on a windt bluff and hung my gear bag off the hook to steady the tripod. No visible motion was apparent in the photos. I love the carry bag and the provided strap too! THe flip locks are a bit stiff, but I'm assuming they will loosen over time. The head takes aq bit of getting used to: only one area in which you can flip the camera veritacl, though. It's a good investment at a great price.

                            Here's to targeted ads. I mean it. This tripod showed up in an ad and it just so happened that I have a fotog friend who used one during our last shoot. an impressive and simple to use and setup tripod, the AC-1441 is also lightweight, sturdy, strong and quite adjustable. the head is very versatile and allows for 360x180-degree flexibility. the only drawback for me is no pointed feet for natural terrain. (I did not see an option for the metal-pointer feet.) Still a great buy, IMHO.

                            I found it a solid and versatile tripod for my D5000. I can quickly set up for a shot with the quick release plate and single action ball head. The carry strap that comes with it is a nice extra and makes it easy to carry.

                              Comments about Oben AC-1441 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head:

                              Great tripod at a perfect price. Easy to level and the quick clips work slick. I love the fact you can turn the reciever upside down for close up photography and hang a weight bag on it for stability. Perfect.
