Head is all backwards

  • Excerpt: This tripod head is all backwards! Its a pain in the butt to use now because Manfrotto switched the tilt lock tightener to the right side which makes it inconvenient to constantly take your right hand off to unlock it. I dont know about everyone else but my right hand was always locked down on either the tilt/pan stick or body of the camera, my left hand was used to lock/unlock the tilt feature. Its all backwards! Whats up Manfrotto?!?!
  • Pros: Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Weak Construction

Stable, but heavy.

  • Excerpt: I bought this tripod to support the weight of my large format view camera and it serves it's purpose. However, with the new carbon fiber tripods on the market that support the equal amount of weight, yet weigh less themselves, they are a better value.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Heavy

Ist OK aber nicht mehr!

  • Summary: Habe mich sehr "intensiv" mit dem Thema Stativ beschäftigt, Foren ausgelesen etc. Daraufhin diese Variante bestellt. Benutzt wird es an einer 5d Mark2 mit EF 70-200 oder EF 16-35. Was muss ein Stativ für mich sein- erste Prio: Stabil, bedienerfreundlich und verwindungsarm. Danach kommen Kriterien wie Gewicht etc. Und da liegt schon der Hase begraben. Das Stativ ist schon sehr weich und wackelig- vielleicht nicht mit einer kleinen Cam, bei meiner schon.
