I bought this workhorse about 5-6 years ago from the original owner and it's been my go-to tripod and has served me VERY well. Sturdy yet not too big or heavy. John Shaw, the famous outdoor landscape photographer, used and recommended this one for when he wanted a lighter tripod (though his definition of lighter is sort of skewed, he often carried a HUGE tripod, heck of a guy by the way, I've met him). Anyway, it's in fine working condition though has some minor marks, little bit of chipped paint, and such from being used. My photos should show you all to see an accurate condition, and that's my Nikon F2 in one photo to give a good sense of scale. Comes shipped in its original box too. Here are the specs: Material: Aluminium Maximum Load: 13.2 lbs. Maximum Height: 71.3 in. Max Height w/o Column: 57.1 in. Minimum Height: 17.3 in. Folded Length: 27.2 in. Leg Sections: 3 Weight: 5.5 lbs. Gitzo G224 tripod - $95 plus actual shipping cost.
