  • Mactrem Papuma PT55 Tripod

    Tripods, you can never have enough when you are photo or film enthusiast. Now, in the days of 3 axis gimbals everywhere for every purpose, Tripods have lesser roles at least in some scenarios. Still tripod is irreplaceable in various situations.

    I’m always a big fan of lightweight tripods which I use for all sorts of use. I don’t use large DSLR cameras since I discovered micro four thirds, which works well on light weight tripods unless you use large lenses. For the record I’ve one of the cheapest version of Manfrotto 190 series tripod to compare with, not really a comparison as Zakitane PT55 is a cheaper tripod, but just as a benchmark to compare with

    Zakitane PT55 is light weight, easy to carry tripod that gives a lot of value for money. Easier to setup and take down without any effort. There is no monopod feature but do have extra stability comparing to cheaper tripods in similar price category. 3 way pan head is just good enough for smooth movements and panning but worth to note that it’s not a fluid head.
    Lightweight, Easy to carry
    The bag comes with the tripod has no padding, so just be careful when you handle roughly. Tripod leg extensions have plastic locking clips. Quick release plate works exactly as expected, Most of the tripod is constructed from aluminium and rest of the parts are made of ABS plastic.

    Overall a decent travel tripod, lightweight and durable. Easy to setup and collapse without much effort. Carry bag is just okay, but would have been nicer if there was extra padding. Please do check out the pictures for a closer look.
