A sturdy and extremely stable tripod that is very suitable for supporting professional equipment. Regrettably, it's rather heavy, which means it's best to use it only for shoots on location.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Exceptional build quality
This tripod is made using very high quality materials. Its legs are very strong, the frame is really sturdy, and the movement of the head feels extremely fluid.
Pro Well suited for professional use
This Ravelli tripod can support equipment weighing up to 27 pounds (12.24 kg) without swaying or losing stability, even under windy weather. It's especially useful for people who want to use rigged out gear and all sorts of extra gadgets.
Pro Excellent stability
Its weight and sturdy build keep the tripod stable at all times, allowing you to easily take high quality shots on uneven and/or soft terrain.
The Ravelli AVTP Pro weighs 10.8 pounds (4.89 kg) and can be very tiring to move around for extended periods of time. This means it's best to use it only for studio or location shooting, where it doesn't need to be moved around too much.
Con Height may make it uncomfortable to use
This Ravelli tripod is only 54.5" (1.38m) high when fully extended, which may make you need to bend your body a lot when using it.
Con Uncommon head size
This tripod uses a 65 mm head, as opposed to the commonly used 75 mm head. The reduced surface can make affixing large pieces of equipment tricky and, if they don't fit properly, you won't be able to move the head around.
