This is a tripod legs+head with a list price of $120. What do you think?

It's a great deal. The ball head alone is worth $60.00.

Ball head won't really give you good pan/tilt for video. It's much better suited for photography.

Wait... just noticed there are other options on the page that are slightly more expensive that include a pan/tilt head. That would totally be worth the extra cost.

No, it will not help you pan- you would be better off with a fluid head for smooth pans. Ball heads are not designed for that type of work.

As far as weight goes, the rule I've always heard it that you should take the maximum weight you plan to put on it, and multiply it by 1.5. Even though it says 8.8 pounds, you don't want to actually put that much weight on it.

Thinking of getting into photography, is this a good starter tripod? the one I have is cheap and shaky...

Anyone know the difference between pan/tilt head 1 and 2, please?

No you need something like this ($35 YuntengFluid Tripod Head [amazon.com])
Here's some samples I made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMy7hJhtySw

well it says aluminum.
looks like a decent tripod for it's price. you can't hardly get some good brand tripod with ballhead under $100 I would say.

So looking at the specs, 8~lb load. Called a 'studio'. Weighs in at about 3lb. Four sections.

Doesn't look to be a work horse type of tripod. Good for light and casual usage.

You could do it, but probably going to get a lot of blurry shots with longer open shutter.

A lot of people that talk about tripods tell you to just drop down the 600 dollars or so and get the good tripod. What ends up happening is that you start off with crappy tripods that are at the 20 to 60 dollar range. Those keep breaking and eventually out of frustration you upgrade up the tiers and you eventually end up at the 700+ dollar range.

How far are you planning to get into photography? At most I would stick a entry body on this with some entry glass. Anything that is pro grade lens will probably start stressing the legs.

I have a benro tripod myself, it is a solid tripod for a 'pro'sumer, it is well stable unless you go extreme spread of the legs. The benro I have has a ball head and the locking method of the ball head is pretty good, even with my canon 70-200 usm ii and with a canon 6d, it holds well for me, I just turn on the 2sec timer to get the picture, since I still don't trust my own shaky hands at 200mm zoom.

Benro brand is sold retail in the 'BestBuy' of vietnam, NguyenKim. (for those whom have never heard of the brand before, and may want to know where it retails or sold as chinese product/or junk)
