My favorite tripod for travel

Countryboyshane, B&H Photo
14 December 2015
  • Excerpt: My photographic focus is travel and architecture. Since 2007, these legs paired with my Manfrotto ball head have served me extremely well. The quick-lock legs are the selling feature. Dealing with flip-lock levers makes me not want to use a tripod. With the quick-lock, you can set up instantly.

Decent for studio, not for travel.

  • Excerpt: I've owned this tripod since it was brand new to the market and I have used it extensively since then. (7+ years now) I've used it indoors and outdoors for portrait photography as well as for hiking and travel photography as the quick setup of the legs was very convenient.

Read reviews - both pro and con!

  • Excerpt: When buying a tripod you really have to consider how and when you are going to use it. I use a tripod for almost every photo I take. I bought this tripod from B&H in 2006 or 2007. I believe it was a new design at that time.

Legs Died

Rex, B&H Photo
1 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I loved this tripod for 5 years. Then the legs gradually increased resistance. I used it mostly indoors, or clean outdoors. No exposure to dirt or weather. When one leg got too stiff to use, I called the national authorized service center and asked about repairing it.

My favorite tripod ever

Brucep, B&H Photo
4 October 2013
  • Excerpt: My original review is probably someplace among the reviews. I bought it five or six years ago and have been loving it ever since. I have five tripods. One is much taller (and heavier) than this one.

Rapid Opening & Closing Mechanism

TY, B&H Photo
31 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Innovative Tripod but VERY disappointed about Horizontal Center Column ; it takes (1)Remove, (2)Unlock, (3)Remove, (4)Insert, (5)Tighten to make it a horizontal column... Why didn't Manfrotto apply the same mechanism as 190XPROB for the Horizontal Column??

Great Investment

Dmboxster, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I went on a commercial assignment and another photographer had this tripod and let me use it on my commercial shoot. I love this tripod as to raise it you just pull the legs down to the desired height with no levers to turn.
