    Picked this up to day in preparation for my D90

    After looking at it in the shop and speaking to the guy, he said it's basically a manfrotto clone, and I got it pretty cheap (NZ$200)

    Once I got it home and put it together, it's super solid (I knew this from the shop model) but has a load of features I didn't really notice before, the legs can lock right out to floor level, there's a small screw so I don't have to flip the centre arm over to get the camera low (obviously losing all the panning options) and the quick release/clip in is a nice touch.

    All metal body and smooth panning with large dials for easy manipulation.

    Not seen anything really mentioned on this brand round here and wondered if anybody had any thoughts?
    Yes it's basically a knock off, but it's a very nice feeling knockoff and for a first serious tripod I think it's well worth the price.

    Not heard of it, but for what appears to be a dead ringer for a set of Manfrotto 190 legs and a 029 head, I'd say you did well.
