My old faithful tripod gave way after 5 years of service. I have a 5D mkII so I was naturally looking at sturdier tripods to hold its weight. Most of the low cost tripods are very light and are incapable of holding a heavy full-frame DSLR. I ordered this as it had a rating of 5kg holding capacity. But I didn't know what to expect from an Indian brand tripod...and boy was i so surprised when I got it....excellent build quality, great support and features that rival far costlier branded tripods...the 3-way geared panhead is extremely smooth without any jerks,perfect for video work as well.Everything is so well put together that I just can't praise it highly enough...quality to price ratio is unbelievable
I am very glad that I bought this tripod...Its heartwarming to see Indian brands making such high class tripods, instead of the regular crap tripods we see everywhere.
when one looks for a tripod, one must take notice of these three things
1. whether tripod is sturdy or not
2. how is the build quality
3. how much weight it can carry
4. what is the maximum height
5. ease of use
and Simpex 880 has all those qualities which makes it a great tripod...its weight is enough to be light on your shoulders and to be sturdy on the ground...
build quality is awesome...thick aluminium legs...the black color is very stylish.
it can easily carry up to 5 kgs of weight so its great for DSLR shooting
given maximum height is 1650 mm...but I felt its maximum height is even higher...which is very good...
its very easy to use...very very easy...i have never used any tripod before...and I could learn all its mechanism in 5 minutes.
flipkart delivery was very good...got my package in 3 days in a very well protected packaging.
All hands down, to this wonder product..I use this for astronomy. I mount my celestron 25x70 skymaster (using Lshaped adapter which comes along with the binoculars)
Not heavy (guys, stop complaining and grow your biceps)
Comes with cool carrying bag..which is rigid
Very easy to launch
MOST IMPORTANTLY...SMOOTH, SMOOTH PAN HEAD,,,very SMOOTH..just like cheese...I LOVE IT..just love it,,.
The arm of pan head it straight at you (just like any other tripod).. for viewing objects at horrizon..I have to be careful at not touching them by my chest, as i lean forward to see the stars..which invariably disturbs the view.. but with practice, You can get hand of it. My solution is, for viewing objects at horrizon, I see the object with only one eye of bino pulling half of my body away from the tripod's pan arm to avoid disturbance.
Verdict: CANT GET ANYTHING AS RIGID, AS PERFECTLY CRAFTED, AND AS CHEAPER THAN THIS.
Ordered it and got it 1 day before, the actual dilivery day.

Tripod is good, and can easily handle the weight of canon t3i / 600d + Canon 55-250mm lens, Using it from like 10 days and used it in many natural locations for photo and video shoot's.
And it impressed me.
So anyone looking to buy this, i will surely recommend it to you.
The best Tripod out there.
By Shwetank Singhon
Its the best tripod for the money. Its no use for comparing it with 10k or 20k tripods. But it does anything you wish to. And yes for the height. It is much higher than mentioned as I am 6 feet and after placing the camera on the tripod I have to stretch a bit to reach the viewfinder.
Its the best Tripod. Just buy it.
recently bought a Nikon D5200 and was on the lookout for a tripod and I'm happy that I bought the Simpex 880
I'm a novice to photography, recently bought a Nikon D5200 and was on the lookout for a tripod and I'm happy that I bought the Simpex 880. Being my first tripod, I feel it's pretty sturdy and inspires confidence to mount the camera on it. I'm not very happy with the bag provided with the product as it is not of a great quality, I carried the tripod in the supplied bag for about 4 kms and it tore at the edge. I would recommend to buy another sturdy bag or carry the tripod without the bag, as the bag is no good.
The tripod is very well made feels completely solid its rated 5kgs which means it can practically take on anything you put on it.also at this price point it can compete with tripods thrice its price. The pan head is very smooth and fluid ,a complete delight to work with. Overall a very good product and a complete value for money.
