Those ball heads are SO much easier than the separate pan/tilt controls when shooting photos

Are you being serious or sarcastic? I'm in the market for a tripod but don't want to get a low quality tripod.

In general, for photos the ball style heads are actually much easier. I can't speak for this ball head, but generally as long as it can support the weight of your camera it should be okay.
But CF sometimes doesn't provide much advantage over aluminum

he's serious. most decent tripods/heads you'll find for photography have a ball head. this looks like a decent deal - however I already have some tripods and this carbon fiber weighs the same as my aluminum tripod, even though it's rated to carry heavier weight (which i'm skeptical about).

Thank you. So I should wait on an aluminum version for a better deal?

It appears to be a good deal - however I haven't used it. The reviews on BH look good, but there really wasn't a lot of them. If I wasn't a tripod for general use I'd probably bite for that price.

Go with Carbon Fiber & flip lock rather than twist lock. Nice to have horizontal center column option as well.

Ball heads are good. I prefer a geared head because it's more accurately adjusted but they are much more money.

Meh regarding carbon fiber and flip lock (just preferences) - definitely yes to the horizontal center column - which I just came back to the thread to check if it had it, it does not so I'd pass on this. I love shooting closeups and that feature is invaluable.

Tripods really cost this much? Wow. I think for my amateur photography I will stick the $50 ones on Amazon 😲

Are these ball heads fully Arca Swiss compatible?

I'm in the market for a tripod and looking for something with a ball head that can pan horizontally for panoramic shots. Also, want something that can handle my Nikon D750 with the 70-200 f/2.8 lens (pretty heavy camera + lens combination). I wouldn't mind getting a tripod from a reputable brand but just want something that can last for at least 5 years from now.. I mainly shoot landscapes but don't abuse my tripod much, planting it in snow, water, wet gravel and such..

Does anybody here have enough experience with this brand/tripod to know if it is durable?
