Pedco PD02010 Reviews

Nice idea, broke on second use

The bolt got stuck in the threads on my second use. When I went looking for repair ideas I found that this was a common problem. I'm guessing they used cheap threads or a cheap bolt. I'll rig something up but I'm really disappointed in the build quality.

stable enough

bought this for my Fujifilm X-T3 and it holds up the weight pretty good, even when using it Portrait oriented

OK for lighter cameras

Although it is rated for cameras up to 6 lbs, it is a little wobbly with only a Nikom D500 (1.89 lbs) with a Nikon DX 55-200 mm lens (10.6 oz). I wouldn't want to put a bigger 300 mm f4 lens (3.2 lbs.) on it.. The tripod may be rated to handle it, but wouldn't trust the stability of the combination.. Even with just 2.5 lbs, I use a wireless remote to prevent movement from manually pushing the shutter. I also need to really tighten the ball head adjustments, otherwise it will not hold tight! I do like the small size and the strap to attach it to a small tree or pole.. Also like the way it folds, but think I'll only use it to put a Go Pro or phone on it.. just too unsteady for heavier loads.

Goes anywhere!

Just what I needed

I left my tripod at home when I headed for NYC. Stopped into the B&H to pickup a cheap tripod to suit me for my stay. Pleasantly surprised by the versatility and range that this tripod provides. The ball-head helped me achieve any angle and the fact that this can attach to a pole with the velcro strap helped me out immensely. Well worth the money.

Very clever design, making this very lightweight and sturdy for it's size. Would highly recommend for this size range.

Super handy for iPhone

I purchased this tripod primarily to use with my iPhone to do quick photos of my clay work, and it is great. I am hoping to use it as well for travel use to stabilize my iPhone on the hood or top of my car. So far so good.

Could you mount a flash to this somehow?

Asked by: Trisha
Depending on the flash, yes. you would need 1/4 to cold shoe adaptor if the flash didn't have a 1/4 mount.

Is a Nikon D810 too much for this little baby? ...

Is a Nikon D810 too much for this little baby? (Too heavy? With a 24-120 lens, the 810 weighs under 5 lbs. Max weight for the tripod is 6, but ???)
Asked by: R.W.
The legs themselves would support the weight, but the built-in ball head would not.

question

I have this tripod and it works great. Does anyone have a solution for mounting a camera in portrait orientation? My normal L bracket does not have a screw mount on that side and simply rotating the ball head does not work because the camera is too heavy.
Asked by: Anonymous
To add to the previous answer, I've added an Arca-Swiss clamp to my Pedco tripod. That allows me to quickly attach my camera with any type of Arca mount, plate or L-bracket. And when I have an L-Bracket it means portrait orientation is no problem at all.
