VEO 204AB is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tripod, But.... Bought this tripod from a local dealer about 8 months ago, Its great! but, its a little more unstable at higher setups than my other tripods. The legs get pretty thin, as its stretched out. definitely get a weight if you plan to use this outside. Easy to clean / take apart, I got sand in my at a beach shoot, much easier to clean than others i've owned. It's compact enough that I don't need to use the case that comes with it, I usually strap it on to my backpack. I don't like how the rubber feet cannot be changed, over time I expect these to wear off. :( Overall Great tripod for the price, would recommend over higher priced similar ones.

Is the ball head able to pan without loosening the entire ball head?

Asked by: ajdd
Hello- No there is 1 knob that controls everything. If you need a separate knob to control the head rotation we would recommend the next one up, the VEO 235AB.

Seriously frustrated! I can not flip up the tripod mount. Looks so easy in all the videos. Do I need to unscrew something or push a button? Thank you.

Asked by: Karen322
Hello- In the tripods compact mode, the center column has to be all the way down in order for the center column to be swung up. If you can see the spring button while the tripod is folded it will prevent the center column from being flipped up.

What is the maximum height with and without the center column extended, and what is the minimum height?

Asked by: ChrisB
The minimum height i'd say is 0, because the center column with the ball head attached is longer than the collapsed leg segments. The center column can flip around beneath the tripod legs, the legs can extend and lock at an angle greater than 45 degrees.  Its 43-1/8" tall with the ball-joint head. and 39-1/2" without the ball joint head. At maximum it is about 55" if weighted and legs in. Otherwise the maximum is 52-3/4" with legs extended. You do not need a 1/4"-20 thread mount, just remove the ball joint by unscrewing (do not remove) the two hex screws on the top of the center column, tighten the ball joint and unscrew the whole assembly from the center column.
