I am looking at a few Tripods by DynaTran on eBay. ;)

Choices are
1. AT-877, cheaper - but: 1" legs, max height only 62.3". Not sure about kit ATH-919 off-set ball head, and Charlya hated it.

2. AT-858CL, somewhat higher-priced, butgood height, 1.13" legs. But comes with 3 way pan head, don’t know the model number.

Would you comment on 3 way pan head comparing with ATH-919 off set ball head, ATH 918 Ball Pistol Grip Head and ATH-H93 Ball Head ?

Could someone help me to make a choice on legs and head config. :confused:

Hey, BrandonSi, everyone,

Could you look at the question I just posted on Charlya’s message two days old?
Any input? :oops:

I really don't have any experience with those specific tripods, but the head that came with my 858 is great. I had a 3 way pan head before, and I will never, ever go back, I love the ball head. The pistol grip too is fantastic, very ergonomic and well placed.

I have the AT-877 and I think it's a great tripod. I got it for $14 so it's a bonus.

I'm not sure if the legs on the 858 is actually larger than the 877 but the 877 is really really sturdy. I'm sure you won't break the legs anytime soon with normal usage.

The tripod is heavy so if there are larger legs, it's will be heavier. You can also raise the middle column for extra height.

The offset head is good I don't have any problem with it. Maybe if heavy lenses but it works good what the lenses I have.

I waited patiently for several weeks, keeping an eye on two types of tripods; the Dynatran AT828 and AT858. I couldn't really see any major differences between the two except for the legs and center column design. I think the 858 has rounder legs and has the three faceted center column. After agonizing over which one to choose, I finally won an auction on the Dynatran AT828. I can't wait to receive it.

What head are on the kits? Because I noticed some oddness with the tripod kit descriptions. For example, they'll state a kit (legs and head) has a max load of 13lbs. But none of the heads they sell seems to support more than 8.8lbs. Shouldn't it list the lower of the two values as the max load for the kit?

So, what heads are on the 882, 858, 828, 992, 994, etc.?

Are you listing previous sales of the 994? If so, then :shock: at the $20 one. Does anyone know if $140 shipped is a good price for a used 994?

I think he was just listing the bid history of that particular 994.;)
If there was ever one 994 for $20, that must be the luckiest photog in the world. :lol:

Wow. That was dumb of me.

I'd love to hear personal input on these dynatran tripods. I wasn't intending to buy a $150+ tripod, but I might go for it.

You've probably seen me raving about the tripods in this thread already, but I'll restate it.. I'm a convert now.. Amvona/Dynatran is top notch quality, and an excellent value for the price. My only regret was waiting so long to buy mine!

I concur. I've been using my CF992 for 2 weeks now, and it does the job well. I can't find any flaws so far. This sucker is light and steady. I waited too long. Now to sell my Quantaray tripod...
