    Comments about Oben AT-3421 Aluminum Tripod With BA-106T Ball Head:

    The tripod & head are well built. Of course, considering the unit's weight, it is not super rigid. The carrying bag is overkill, being too bulky but also so short the tripod needs to be twisted around from its inverted storage position to its working position. That money would be better spent on the ball head, with a lock for rotation, a lock on the quick release (scary with expensive camera)and better friction control on the ball, which goes from firmly locked to floppy in an instant.

      Comments about Oben AT-3421 Aluminum Tripod With BA-106T Ball Head:

      Let's be realistic. The Oben AT-3421 Tripod with BA-106T Head isn't my 10lb, steady as a rock tripod I don't carry around because it is too big and too heavy. Neither is it my pocket tripod that weighs a few ounces and sits my camera 4 or 5 inches off the ground or a table. It is light enough and compact enough to carry with my backpack or in my luggage on a hike or trip. It gets my camera off the ground and eye-level to photograph landscapes, people, etc. Got to admit, I don't get too far away from the set-up if there is much wind. I think it will come in handy. It has many positive features you can read for yourself. I might have preferred locks instead of twists. But it ought to do...
