Love me lights

I like this lamp very much. The RGB function is very easy to use. You can contact to the mobile phone to control the color of lamp. You can control the lamp from a distance, and you don't need to control the button of the lamp every time you adjust it, you just need to operate it on the mobile App. It's really very convenient!

Definitely not worth the money

I'm processing a return for 2 of these that I just purchased. The plate is almost glued into the head. You REALLY have to force it back in or yank it out to attach anything to it. The head is also fastened very poorly so that if you're trying to pan, the whole head will wobble. The pan bars showed up dented. The plate overshoots the head by at least an inch on either side. Just very poor construction. Wouldn't recommend at all.

Great video tripod

This tripod it's one my favorite tools so far. Normally a carbon fiber 2 stage tripod similar to this costs up to 2 times or even 3times. This knob used to unlock the legs are so great, the leg clips and knobs will set the legs free, very fast and smooth.

I had fun just staring at it cause the tripod when I started to untwist each knob, I noticed that there was a lot of length to this tripod. My previous tripods would always barely extend the camera over a ledge or wall. At other times, no matter how much I extended my tripod, the wall would block my camera's view completely. With this tripod, there's clearly no worries about whether the camera will be realistically blocked. With the tripod, I was able to take steady city shots at night above high walls

Truly enjoyed using this tripod

I have an FDR AX53 Sony video cam which has great image stabilization. On an inexpensive tripod, at high zoom the stabilization couldn't deal with the high frequency jitter that comes from, for example, someone just walking by the tripod. This tripod is much more stable, and minimized the jitter tremendously. Its fluid head makes for very smooth pans and tilts without the initial jump that a friction head tripod is wont to produce. It has a very sturdy construction that creates about as stable a platform as you could want. The quick release slides are large, large enough so that they keep a camera from falling over when you remove it from the tripod and set it down, and they are very easy to get on or off. It comes with two, but I bought an extra for an additional camera. It is not light, but I wouldn't expect that for a tripod this stable. However, for the degree of stability it provides it is reasonably light and portable.

Sturdy, versatile tripod

I've had this tripod for a good while now. Used it on a bunch of shoots, and did a lot of traveling with it. This tripod is so easy to setup and tear down. It's lightweight and incredibly sturdy. I bought this tripod because I was on a budget.

Unacceptable

I've had success in the past with GVM but the head on this tripod is terrible. Specifically, the plate mount is very difficult to attach to. The plate gets jammed and is very difficult to slide in and out. Switching to a different QR plate doesn't solve the issue either. I returned it immediately for a different model.

How tall is the tripod without the head?
Asked by: Kenstyle
Unfortunately this is not info listed by GVM as they do not sell the head separately. With the head the maximum height is 74.4 inches. We believe it will be around 67-69 inches without the head.

Does the tripod have adjustable pan and tilt drag or is it fixed? The specs and overview are conflicting.
Asked by: sean
A side mounted knob adjusts the tension of the drag on front-rear, tilt movements. Rotate to adjust with a camera mounted to find the most appropriate setting. A pan Drag/Lock Lever provides both drag and locking control of horizontal head movement.
