This VCT-60AV has been with me everywhere from home to San Diego, CA to Las Vegas, NV and Los Angeles, CA. I fly with the VCT-60AV, Jog With the VCT-60AV, I've thrown it. It's Been kicked, Dragged, covered in dirt, and dropped.
The VCT-60AV has Endured Air shows, Boat Races, Dirt Oval Stock races, Classic War-bird Flights, Falcon watching, Astronomy, Weather, Rocket launch Observation, The Beach, Time-lapse Cinematography, Auto Shows.
This Tripod also acts as a mono-pod by only extending one leg.
This and I'm sure every other Sony Tripod will provide you with nothing but greater or equal quality as mine still does to this today And I am Certain long into the next few years. I love this thing, even all the oils have maintained their silky smoothness. The VCT-60AV Is a Sony Tripod.
