I can't say whether this is a good deal or not but seems heavy for landscape work, in terms of, lugging it around. Portrait work, on the other hand, may work well.

It is a heavy pod, I have one similar and do not take it out of the house. Its a portrait setup. I use a Manfrotto 055 xprob with a 488 rc2 head for landscapes, it works very well and in not too heavy.


Please speak slowly and distinctly. I have a wife and a computer, I don't need any more confusion in my life.

I wanted to be a nude photographer, but when I went outside naked, everyone pointed and laughed, so I gave it up.

Very heavy, very sturdy, very versatile tripod that goes very tall but rarely leaves to go outside except when I need to set up large format camera!!!

"Material: Anodized Aluminum. For use in Still Photography and Video. Maximum Height with extended center column: 83.5 inches. Minimum Height: 16.6 inches. Closed Length: 33.1 inches. Maximum Load Capacity: 26.5 lbs. Weight:10 lbs Head Mount: 3/8"" threaded mount."

Not a very special price, though!

Not sure about the legs, but that exact head I use with my Mamiya RB67 without problem. Very sturdy for landscape or any other purpose.
