Why do our tutors choose this product?
Our tutors set high standards to tripods and ball head. First, a good tripod must be very stable and its height should be close to eye level. Second, the tripod should be light enough to be carried around. It should be able to provide very stable support for the camera when you opened it up.
As for the ball head, it should feature a strong ball-locking for both camera and lens (Including while using portrait orientation). What is more, it has to be able to adjust the direction easily. It would be even better if it comes with 360 degree rotation and friction control.
