      Very happy with my choice of this tripod to replace my @ first tripod special. Smooth operating, compacts nicely and the carrying case is a great add on. This copled with the Oben head I bought for it has me very happy. Service and shipping from B&H cannot be praised enough. Keep up the great work

          I ordered this tripod "sight unseen" and I couldn't be more pleased. It's solid and much better quality than I expected at this price range. The case that comes with it fits the tripod with the ball head attached easily. The bag is heavy duty with large zippers and comes with a nice shoulder strap. I couldn't be happier!

              Comments about Oben AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock):

              I'm a photo enthusiast that loves to do night photography, both land and sky, and this tripod is perfect for that job. I also do macro photography and the multi-position legs at different angles allow me to get those low shots that were very difficult for me previously.

                      This was exactly what I wanted. Perfect height and great construction. She's a little heavy to hand carry all day, would be better on a backpack or over the shoulder, but shes very sturdy and with the center column hook that you can put your bag on, she won't go anywhere!

                      First Tripod

                      Comments about Oben AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock):

                      This is my first good tripod. I had to buy a new one because my old one could not hold a new lens that I had purchased. The legs are sturdy and can handle my new lens easily. I could not afford a carbon fiber one, so I purchased this one. I am using it while on vacation at the beach taking night pictures.

                      I've been looking for a good tripod for awhile and this one had everything that I wanted. Good load capacity, hook for sand bags, spikes, grips, and just overall rock solid. It had more features than comparable manfrotto legs. The bag is really nice as well. My only knock is that at over albs. it can be a bit cumbersome to lug around with other equipment. It's always best to do your research and make sure this is will work for you. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.

                      El tripié se siente muy fuerte y alcanza mucha altura. Siento que me falta un poco del movimiento que ofrece el Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro, en cuestión del tubo central, puesto que ofrece un poco más de oportunidades para colocar la cámara, pero este tripié costo menos y es de muy buena calidad, al menos en mi opnión es 100% confiable.
