The FT-6663A Tripod is strong, light, holds DSLR zoom lens securely.
I am very pleased with this item. It is strong, looks good and holds my Sony a300 with zoom lens easily. Easy to adjust the height. Good height range - and it is light to carry. The carry case is professional looking. I bought this product to suit my Digitial Photography course needs, but didn't feel ready for paying hundreds of dollars yet. This FT-6663A Tripod will do me perfectly for my medium range digital photography skills, however, I think it would be suitable for the needs of most non professional DSLR users. Very happy.
