I just bought a A1350Q1 (A1350Q1O Orange) off Craigslist last night. It was $100. It goes for $160 on Amazon. So, I didn't get a stellar deal... Guy said he had it for about six months. I tried it with my Sigma 17-50 with Canon T2i + battery grip and a YN-622C on top. Worked fine. It seems like the ballhead isn't going to move unless I'm putting 10lbs+ on it and moving the entire tripod up and down. I considered putting my flash on it too, but I'll try that later.
The ballhead seems to work fine. I hate the plate, but that's just how the system is. I didn't get the bag with the purchase.
What do you guys think of the tripod? I watched a youtube video where the guy didn't recommend it for DSLRs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pb7KD0Su0Q&hd=1
I have to say though, holy crap this tripod is small! It fits within a 16x4x4 space. That's small enough for most carry ons. Great travel size and seems to work fine for me so far. I'm worried that as soon as I put a 70-200 2.8 IS II on it that it will start to freak out, but that's a purchase that's off in the distance. So far, I have no good reason to believe that other than it not being a $700 gitzo with a $300 head. As far as it goes, most people have not had any trouble with this tripod (as far as I've seen besides that video).
