not sure why somebody has voted that this is not a good price. Thumbs up and repped, OP.
having said that, "50' professional alumnum tripod" is a contradiction in terms. if you wanna go professional, go with a 65' carbon fiber one. this way you won't get burns in the summer and frostbites in the winter and won't have to stand on your knees to positiion the camera

"50' professional alumnum tripod" is a contradiction in terms.
Just the picture of this tripod and the word "professional" are a contradiction.
However, there are some very nice real professional tripods on the market that are made of aluminum. (Manfrotto[manfrotto.us] makes some, for example.) Carbon fiber is great if you need to lug it around, but it's way more expensive than aluminum. And aluminum works just fine for studio shooting.
Tempted to pick one up as I don't have a tripod at the moment.
It would definitely help with night shooting...
I just have a Canon Xsi with kit 18-55mm so not alot of gear.
Can anyone comment about build quality? I'm worried about the thing not being sturdy and falling over or having my camera fall off...
