    815 Big Tripod Set with Video Head, Mid Level Spreader & Bag is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth, but not perfect I'm an amateur and this is my first pan/tilt tripod. I'm using it to video a seminar presentation with camera trained mostly on the presenter, but with occasional scans of the audience. The pan/tilt motions are smooth, but because there was NO PRODUCT MANUAL INCLUDED, I'm not sure that I'm using it completely properly. There's no pdf manual available from Varavon's website, and no YouTube videos in English that explain its functioning. I emailed the company requesting a link to the manual one month ago and have not heard back. It took me a while to figure out how to use the levers and releases, and still there is a dial on the back of the head that remains a mystery. For an amateur tripod that I bought on sale, I'm happy with it. And some of you are probably laughing at me. But wouldn't one expect at least a small manual or guidebook?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Rig for the Money I use this for my GH4. It's well sized and smooth. My only gripe is that the center spreader has no adjustments and connot be removed so you're a little bit stuck with a predetermined spread. Other than that I'm happy so far.
