"Serious gear"

Redlander, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Upgraded to a heavier tripod due to mainly using longer tele lens on an APSC DSLR for wildlife. It's not that "heavy" to carry around and holds my gear much more steady than the aluminimum tripod I have been using. I have the Manfrotto 322RC2 head and I just can't say enough about either of the two. This combo really works well for me. The 055CXPRO3 is a little longer than the PRO4 but I don't travel that much by air so it's not an issue for me.

Love it! Much ligher than the Non Carbon

  • Excerpt: I use this product when I go hiking (sometimes some long treks up to 10 miles into a location, up mountains, etc.). Every lb counts, and the difference between this version and the old non-carbon fibre version is incredible. <br /><br />Lightweight, easy to set up, strong. I do find that because it IS so light, that I sometimes use the 'hook' to hang my bag off of to add a little weight to stop it from shifting during rotation of panorama pics. Loving it.

Outstanding Large Size Tripod

Ryan the Snapper, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased this as a main tripod to be used for weddings, but also to possibly carry with out in the field.<br />I like that once I put the tripod head on it, it is almost at my eye level. It is also very light for its size.<br />It is large, so carrying it in the field isn't as ideal as I had hoped. But I have a large backpack that I can still put this in to carry along if needed.

Great Value for The Money

  • Excerpt: I decided to purchase this tripod as I wanted something more versatile, stable, sturdy, yet durable and lightweight.<br />After reading some reviews and getting some feedback from some fellow photographers, I purchased the tripod.<br />I have used it for some night shots and zoom-out effects. I like the stability it offers, the versatility of the Q-90 system and the lightweight (with head it weighs around 6 lbs.

Not much lighter but enough

Duende Arts Studio, B&H Photo
17 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this to encourage myself to use a tripod for outdoor shoots. It is not that much lighter than the all-aluminum Manfrotto that I already have but just enough lighter to make picking it up on my way out more likely. Having a Manfrotto makes using this tripod a breeze - the same conventions of extending the legs, even using the perpendicular arm.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Not Light Enough

So Easy &amp; Light

Landscape Lover, B&H Photo
16 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I love using a tripod for landscape &amp; macro work. I had a very low end tripod that was not meeting my needs. This tripod is great! Very easy to use. I love all the different angles you can place the legs &amp; the fact that it can flatten out on the ground for very low work is awesome. The weight of it is very good for the price. If you are looking for a stable, well made tripod that is versatile-this is it.
