Good Tripod!

Claudia, Adorama
1 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had this tripod for about 2 years now. I use it with the 498RC2 manfrotta ball head. The tripod is a bit on the heavy side but tolerable on photowalks. It is not a big hassle to carry around. It is very sturdy and strong. It has kept up with me for two years and still looks new. I mainly use it for sports photography and landscape. It is easy to set up when out and about. My main issue is just the weight but as mentioned, it's not a huge inconvenience.
  • Pros: Good Stability
  • Cons: Heavy

well balanced loading ability and weight

  • Excerpt: I use Tripod for both still images and video. The load capacity of this tripod allows me to use a relatively heavy fluid head for my DSLR and all of my lenses. The lightweight and 4-section legs also make it easy to carry around.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Much better than expected!

  • Excerpt: I felt that spending this much money on what amounts to three sticks and a bolt was proving the adage &quot;a sucker is born every day.&quot; However, I had to try the best, so I skipped the aluminum (too heavy) and three section (to large to backpack easily) and went right to this model.<br /><br />I could not be more impressed.

Great Tripod

srfotog, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I've only had the tripod a few weeks, but I used it with my longest lens (70-300) at a graduation in a large arena where I was a good distance away from the stage and way above it. The tripod took the weight of camera and lens at awkward angles without any problem. Combined with the Acratech Ultimate ballhead, I am very pleased with this tripod.

Sturdy and rigid

PHP, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Love the durability and rigidity. Its very windy in the desert and you need a very rigid tripod for crisp images...this does the trick especially for being a light weight tripod.

Very Good Tripod

Bryan, Eagle Optics
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I have owned this tripod for 2 years now. Used it on many hikes and in blinds. I used to use a similar Manfrotto tripod made of aluminum. I really appreciate the lighter weight after a 12 mile hike. This is very sturdy and does a good job of getting low to the ground. It becomes unstable if you try to use it lower than the center column height unless the center column stays at the center of the unit. I have used it as low as 6" and the legs mostly retracted.

Great Tripod! Very light!

SiestaKey1, Adorama
21 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Awesome tripod. Looks great, folds up small, very versatile in how the legs can fold out to different angles, and the center column can be oriented in a horizontal position very easily. The unit comes with an 18&quot; (top to bottom) center column but I also purchased the short center column which is about 6 inches. I read other reviews on how you have to do a little work to get the tripod low with the long center column.
