I've been searching for something I could use to get pictures or video in odd environments. I found the cheaper version of this and started reading the reviews and one caught my eye in particular. It said go ahead and spend the few extra bucks and get this one and I am glad I did. I have some smaller knock off types I use for old iPhones, but they just aren't that reliable or sturdy. That's ok for an old iPhone 4, but not when your camera rig with glass and mic are over $1,000.
This acts like a tripod in places where its impossible to get a real tripod into! or bend all three legs and use it as a selfie stick. this is the perfect pod to do run and gun shooting for vlogs on youtube. The new 3k/2k/1k/5k models have enhanced glue on the ball joints so it wont go loose as quick as the previous older gen models. the panning mode on the ballhead is perfect, and comes in handy for those cinematic shots for sure. the material used is great and feels EXTREMELY sturdy in my hand. my DSLR didnt budge one bit while on this pod.
I hardly ever write review but this one really had to be done. I purchesed this one month ago. only used it twice and leg broke off while I was trying to use it. Im really disapointed since this was no the cheapest option out there. Beaware of this cheaply made product.
Purchased on July 2. Now July 31 and this thing has already broke.
