I mentioned both PROS and CONS about the tripod and who would benefit from using it. I've also mentioned a couple of expectations to those who are about to make an expensive investment so they won't be surprised by it when they receive it at the end of the year. I seldom blindly recommend camera products on my channel until I've had a decent amount of experience with it. Those who've been a long time subscriber can attest to my long form reviews. And yes, Peak Design supplied this tripod to me for review purposes. While it may seem like it's "free," it does takes a lot of time for us creators to test out the product to make sure it's not a dud and then make a video properly informing our viewers about it. I've even brought this with me on a wedding shoot to get some real world experience with it to formulate better opinions about the tripod. We're not being paid and we're not obligated to make the video. But we enjoy making videos, sharing our excitement about something, and we want the community to enjoy a cool product as well (or to avoid it if it really does suck). Hope this help clear things up!Reply @jason bong What's the ND filter holder you're using in 11:34?Reply They need to lose that phone holder! Waste of space!Reply get my manfrotto be free…..Reply Jason, the plate latch, is it plastic? How is the ball attached to the center post, just looks like it would snap off. Could see a A9 w/70-200 lying on the ground when the post snaps the ball off from the mechanical advantage the head looks to have from the design, just wondering?Reply Phone hoader?Reply Can I question about 85mm first? What is the better one with sony native 85mm and samyang(rokinon) 85mm?Reply I really like the design, but cannot seem to justify the $479 for the discounted carbon-fibre price. Just as soon continue to wrap my unmentionables around the legs of my MeFoto Roadtrip for that price.Reply 👍 I am looking forward to buy itReply Hmmm, the center post looks really skinny. Like the way the legs folds though – very compactReply Thanks for the honesty about the context of the 'sponsorship' and giving both the pro's and con'sReply Well i'm a fan of PD products as well, but for this price i would rather save up for a Gitzo.Reply 9:54 Is that a swing out ND filter with Magnetic closure?? Where do I buy that!!! 😱Reply Affiliate link for a $600 travel tripod? Hmm…BTW: I watched the entire video and I have to say that it's unbelievable how many people have already backed this Kickstarter. Although I too struggle carrying a tripod comfortably when traveling, PD's solution is not worth the money.Reply Befree is cheaper and betterReply Peak Decline! Overprice for what it does.Reply Only Tony and Chelsea have a real review. How much did PD paid you?Reply I understand the price is there for a reason, but still scares a lot of people, especially who are starting to buy their first tripod. Otherwise this a really good tripod, with some serious improvements required.Reply Preordered right now. Hopefully it comes before I start to Mexico End of December 2019.Reply I wish they would’ve gone without a center column.Reply Founder of peak design on tech crunch promo made it seem like he discovered the leg geometry. I have had a tripod flashlight from Home Depot for over 12 years that has the same legs. I love it when entrepreneurs make it seem like they are Tesla. I also love the media blitz of testimonials by YouTube influencers that seems synchronized and glowing and yet they say they are not peak design hacks. Having said this it looks like a great concept and tripod that like many other tripods and camera equipment is waaaayyy over priced. Sometimes I wish smartphone would decimate DSLR and pro camera accessory companies- greedy bastards that they are.Reply As a pro I would never recommend this tripod for professional or amateur use…very cheap and WAY over priced and can't believe people on YouTube are excited about this productReply Great video~ You sure you are 500lbs…only? hahahaReply Those prices are nutsReply Peak design is a RIPOFF.Reply Nope.Reply Would rather the Gitzo Traveler. Smaller and not that much more$$$$.Reply Pretty looking Tripod but It looks flimsy, and for the price I'm not sure I wouldnt get a manfrotto instead.Reply Any comments on the ball head on this compared to an actual ball head.Apparently it’s not very flexible according to objective reviews.Are you confident about the really thin center column?You cannot move the “ball head” until you extend the central column thus adding stability issues.Actual ball heads don’t need the central column to be extended to move and pan the camera.Do you feel that these compromises justify the cost of the tripod, just to keep it compact.Can you talk about carbon fiber travel tripods in the $200-300 range that have the same capacity and an actual ball head and how this compares? Like your befree? It has a real ball head and is considered one of the best compact tripods made. Do you feel that all the compromises with the peak design one along with the price justifies it over the befree. Would you actually buy one, even if you had the befree, if you didn’t get it free?Is all these omissions due to them sponsoring your flight to San Francisco?I enjoy your videos and enthusiasm and objective videos. I just don’t feel that this one is very objective.I really got a better objective review after watching Tony Northrop’s video.I figured you would also catch the design flaws, so came by to get your take on it.Reply Expensive and there are really great travel tripods in carbon and cheaper.Reply Sounds promising I'll make sure to do my research on this product thanks Jason!Reply Overpriced crap just like Apple products…Reply Bull Shit. not very impresiveReply I know PD has said it is compatable with "most Arca-compatable plates" – how about the Really Right Stuff plates?Reply It looks really interesting, especially the small form-factor. But this is the second review I'm watching and nobody is talking about the stability of the tripod when it's extended. That's the single most important feature of a tripod and an area where a LOT of travel tripods fail. Since this one is a 5 part leg-design, that usually also means thinner legs and therefor a more unstable design. It would be great to get some details about the actual stability of the legs.Reply Thank you for being the only one I've seen up until now, to talk about why the price is what it is.Also for the people complaining, there are tripods in that price range from established manufacturers, which doesn't even include a head, most time their ballheads go for 200-400 extra.Also i love that you put the fluidhead on the ballhead, did you try pans? If so, how stable/shaky were they?Reply Have you tried putting some weight on the hook to weigh it down? Is the hook made out of metal or plastic? I tend to find myself shooting in some breezy or windy spots. By the way that city hall is beautiful, my girlfriend lives down the road, literally next to the train station. Which I cannot wait to shoot some low light/light trail photography when I move there from Alaska.Reply For videos peeps… how is the stability, I also had that manfrotto pro fluid head that Jason’s using here and it’s pretty heavy on my beefree which makes me want to check out the gimbal fluid head from Gitzo but it’s $500 …no way lolReply Nice review, but you make it sound like shooting in portrait mode is a new invention 😂Reply That what she saidReply That' s what she said…" 4 fingers deep"Reply Wow you can shoot in portrait modo, on a tripod?!! Hold the presses!Reply It should say 4 fingers deep to spread the legs.Reply yup four fingers deep for sureReply why not go for gitzo?Reply Would this be compatible with moza slypod and moza Air 2 gimbal?Reply And you need to go in four fingers deepReply It come out too LATE.Reply Legend has it he went 4 fingers deepReply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
