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

        Durable and rather light weight. I was going to purchase the carbon fiber version, but after seeing it in person, decided that I actually like the aluminum version better as it will offer more stability.

          This is my first Tripod. I use it for my Nikon D7000. Price was right and it's very easy to use. I paired it with the Oben BE-117 Ball Head. Just right for what I needed.

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

            I've been using a cheap tripod for years. Recently one of the legs broke but was still usable. Finally got sick of it and bought this because of the price and reviews and I'm glad I did. This thing is so sturdy has so many positions! From taller than me to ant level, I can get shots from so many different angles. I'll never buy another cheap tripod again!

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

              If you use a heavy camera with big lenses this tripod will do more than just fine. I've used this item for almost a year now and it just great. Stabilizes my Nikon D700 and 80-200mm lens without a problem. Legs locks are very durable. The only thing that I didn't like about it was that the O ring on the bottom of the column had to be thicker to prevent scraping on the legs. That's no biggie, I got that fixed. Other than that, its simple, strong and serves it's purpose well.

              This is a very nice, sterty tripod. The weight concerned me at first, but it really isn't that bad. Although, I would be hesitant to take it on a long hike.

                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!

                        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!

                                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.

                                I love it so far. Sturdy, long, cheap, but really heavy. It's an amazing tripod for the price!

                                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.
