This is my second Promedia tripod purchase. I have the beefy model for my Nikon 600mm. They are both exquisitely constructed. Very light in weight but extremely sturdy. I use a Sony A7R IV on it. It is a perfect combination. I have the center column option but have not used it yet. Getting low for macro flower shooting is a joy compared to my former tripods. If given a choice, this tripod would be first choice. Promediagear is a fine USA company.
