A few weeks ago, Ulanzi sent me their new X-Aircross F38 travel tripod for video creators to review. When I created my channel, my goal was not to do gear reviews. But these seem to have become popular and get good engagement, so I have made a few of them. All available on this blog as well. And companies have noticed.

As per my other reviews, the video is not sponsored. Ulanzi genuinely asked me to give you my honest review about the tripod. This is great because I raise a few questions in this video that could have been ‘silenced’ if this was a paid sponsorship.
You know how these things go… You are rarely asked to lie, but maybe you get told to specifically omit something that may look bad on the brand.

But overall, my experience with the tripod has been positive. And I was very pleasantly surprised about its features, how well it performs and especially how light it is. Less than 1.1kg! That’s probably why this can be the perfect “ultimate” travel tripod. You don’t even feel it on your back!

The Video

I try to be as thorough as possible. In this video review of Ulanzi Aircross F38, you will find:

  • Intro (where I talk about Ulanzi as a trustworthy brand in the tripods space)
  • Price and specs
  • The Aircross legs mechanism (with pros and cons)
  • The fluid head for video
  • The F38 quick-release system (maybe ranting a little bit)
  • All the extra features

By the way, since uploading this video, I may have found a workaround to open and use the thicker legs before the thinnest… I’ll post a Short soon as an update.
But here is the full video review:
