NcStar Binoculars & Scope Tripod Selection
This tripod has a lot of features that work pretty well for the low price and light weight. The design is generally well thought out. I like the cam-locked camera shoe with the spring-retractable locater pin. The handle and controls are sized and shaped for easy operation, and the plastics appear to all be fiber reinforced. The only quibbles are that the base spirit level was set a bubble width off, the camera base only tips to about 85 degrees, and the tripod bag strap is so short it will only go over a small shoulder.
