Nice Update From Old 055 Leg Set

Jefenator, B&H Photo
23 June 2015
  • Excerpt: My previous tripod was an aluminum Manfrotto 055 from the early '90s. I miss the way I could swivel the center column while it was loose on those old legs and I miss the beefier, more durable feel.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Serviceable

Excellent tripod

  • Excerpt: This tripod gives excellent support for landscape and macro photography. The center column easily switches from vericle to horizontal and back again. The leg locks operate quickly and easily, but you must be careful to avoid getting a finger pinched.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: No Spiked Feet, Tricky Leg Locks

Solid tripod.

  • Excerpt: This tripod is my first "real" tripod and I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. It is solid, light and compact. I have the 54 magnesium ball head and this combo handles my 5d mk II with heavy L series lenses with no slipping what so ever.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight

Great tripod now better with carbon

Master Chronicler, B&H Photo
25 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I have an older aluminum 55 which has been my workhorse for the last 4 years but its heavy so the carbon fiber and more adjustable legs sold me on an update. It is everything I wanted.... 3 stage legs with levers and a center column that rotates 90 degrees. Its good BUT...

Strong, cool features, small faults.

Captain Howdy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I purchased this tripod with Manfrotto's new 3-way head and I love it despite a couple small issues. When adjusting the Q90 center post to the horizontal position you MUST be very mindful of the "C ring".

Good, steady tripod

Jack, B&H Photo
2 January 2015
  • Excerpt: The only complaint I have is that the column tightening screw strips easily. Other than that the tripod is a workhorse for my real estate photography business. I plan on buying the same tripod as a backup.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Lightweight

This tripod is the business!

Boomer, B&H Photo
2 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I just started shooting panoramic shots I needed a better tripod than my old Slik aluminum unit. This is a night and day difference! The center column/boom section is one of my favorite parts about thing, but admittedly, this is also the only part that seems slightly "plastic-y" and feels like it...
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Flexible Positioning
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

Very light and easy for my husband to carry!

Sheila Smart, Camerasdirect
1 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This is my first tripod for many years as in the past I thought they were a complete waste of time. But now I am more interested in long exposure shots and this one fits the bill. I would like to also state that I am very impressed with Camerasdirect as I ordered the tripod on Friday and it arrived...

praktisch und konfortabel

Fotograph, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: Für unterwegs auch mit Videoneiger leicht und handlich. Wenn man Spiegelvorauslösung und Vorlaufzeiten benützt, dann ist Größe und Gewicht ein konfortabler Kompromiss zu schweren Stativen - gerade unterwegs in der Natur.

  • Summary: I love this tripod and I do no feel that I'm carrying some heavy photographic equipment with me as this tripod is very very light and I do not hesitate to carry it along with me every time I travel.
