A size for every need. The MK-4 is a great tripod at even better pricing. Special to this tripod is an aluminum column and a horizontal leg brace.
Comments about Vanguard MK Series Heavy-Duty Tripod with 3-Way Fluid Panhead and Carrying Handle:
Had the tripod less than a month, and accidently bumped into in when it was folded up and leaning against the wall. Tripod fell right onto the Geared Elevator Crank, which completely snapped off. Not exactly quality craftsmanship, as the distance of the fall was only about 12".
Needless to say, my replacement purchase will not be another MK-4.
