The iFootage Wild Bull T5 Tripod is a great choice for those looking for a tripod that is lightweight, compact, and has a high load capacity of 88 lbs. The T5 is anodized aluminum construction. It has a 59 in. maximum height, a minimum height of 8 in., and weighs only 8.8 lb. Collapsed length is 28.3 inches. Bowl diameter is 75mm.

Adjustable feet spikes and feet pads allow the tripod to function in uneven terrain. The locking legs can be adjusted to any angle from 15° to 78°. The quick release locking lever design allows fast lock and release of the tripod legs with just one hand. Its spreader is easily moved from bottom to mid section. The T5 includes a padded carrying case with comfortable shoulder strap and side handle.

    Hows that tripod?
    Can you recommend a good tripod/head under $400?

    Something for dslr/weddings/narratives


  2. How about the Wobble? I have about 4 portable jibs from cheap tubular systems, to steel one piece unites and probably the most expensive and most used a Kessler Porta Jib Traveler. ultra light but all of these struggle with a Canon C100 on them as they tend to woble from side to side way to much. is this carbon fiber one more rigid and can it handle that payload?

    I wonder how much if it's coming with whole set including tripod
    Can I have the link of price of this model ?
    Please send me to my email , thanks

  4. this looks pretty good. my experience with portable jibs is that with repeated use they tend to wear down over time, and it's the joints and non-metal, non-carbon fiber parts that break down. how's the build quality of this jib?

    @krys - I don't know about Bang for Buck, but it's certainly a very different portable mini jib. The other mini ones don't have all the little features for panning base, leveling, and tracking. I think it's pretty cool.

    would you say this is the best bang for your buck for mini/portable cranes so far? great features and pricing!!

    newsshooter also posted a video about this crane with all these extra accessories/other components.
