What a potent package for the price. I have tried many solutions over the past several years, but found the Leofoto LS-223CEX + LH-25 ball head to be amazing. Lightweight and compact but very strong for its size. I use this with my Nikon Z8 + Z6 and many lenses from 14-30mm all the way up to a 400mm F/4.5 and it handles it very well. I can’t speak to longevity yet as I have only had it for short time while now, but the usability and initial quality are outstanding. The materials and manufacturing appear to be top notch on the legs, leveling base and the ball head. I find the knobs and adjustments to be very easy to use and smooth. The value proposition for this package is one of the best I could find. Thanks Leofoto for making this product.
Not only is their products great, but their services is just a good
really robust and sturdy. much better then my no-name tripod I bought on Ama--n. using with a FF Sony and zoom lens. the included case (w/inner zippered pocket) will accomodate the 223CEX with the LH-30. Like there are also spiked feet that are easy to swap. leveling base is well dampened and makes getting the tripod as level as possible much easier. can't discern a quality difference between this and my Gitzo CF tripod. I rarely need to use my full-sized gitzo and this is now my EDC when hiking. I have the Leofoto MT03 setup for when weight is critical
I love this tripod, unbelievable quality and light weight. Just what I needed for a low advantage point of view. I am very happy I purchased directly from the Leofoto web site, it arrived in one day! I am also hoppy with the self leveling head, it’s perfect!
I purchased the tripod for mounting a Bog Ultralite Death Grip for table top shooting my airguns. It works great, no more bipod and bags, helped improve my accuracy Thanks for a well built product. happy safe shooting John
