This tripod is built extraordinarily well. Extra heavy duty with many features. CNC machines aluminum with a 3/8" and 1/4" thread in one. The 3/8" thread is spring loaded and pushes down around the 1/4" thread. Very ingenious in my opinion. The legs are adjusting to stand or lye flat and there are threaded holes in them for mounting more cameras or lights. 3 nylon buckle straps included for mounting to a tree or post or anything else they will fit around. This is definitely a remarkable piece of equipment and also a magnificent value. I am super impressed with this purchase and am sure you too will be as pleased as I am.
