You can spend a great deal of time and money try­ing to find the per­fect tri­pod, and while the FT-750 might not be at the top of ev­ery­one’s wish

list, it is great value for money. Stand­ing at a max­i­mum height of 61 inches and able to carry a very rea­son­able four kilo­grams it’s a great op­tion for Nikon D3000-se­ries and Nikon 1 own­ers.

The three-sec­tion legs pack down to 25.2 inches and the whole thing weighs just over one and a half kilo­grams, so it’s pretty easy to carry. The sim­ple video head sits on top of an ex­tend­able ratchet, which is used to ad­just the height pre­cisely. The legs are all se­cured us­ing quick re­lease clips that are neat, easy to re­lease, and hold the legs firm.

The ma­te­ri­als used are no-frills, and while this is ap­par­ent the build seems solid enough to cre­ate a sta­ble base. There’s also a bag hook at the bot­tom of the cen­tral col­umn so that you can add ex­tra weight to sta­bilise things if needed. It might not stand up to pro­fes­sional use but for the av­er­age en­thu­si­ast it should be more than ad­e­quate.
