Summary: Its built strong, and sturdy!.Nice hard plastic legs that open with 3-clips for short to long. I think the coolest thing about this tripod is the dovetail plate.! So cool that when you release the pin you can swivel 360 degrees, up/down, right/left! This comes in very HANDY!
One or 2 small drawbacks: #1-The center pole that holds the camera, slips! If you put any pressure at all on it.
Not very taught.
Summary: This Tripod is quite a step up from the tripods I've used in the past.
It is constructed very well and all of the locking clamps are very secure.
The Ball Head is a really neat idea but is taking some time getting used to, but I think it'll work out alright. I take alot of segmented photos for panoramas and linning up each consecutive shot can be a little tricky, but over-all it's better than other tripods with the leveling bubbles which more often than not were rather...
Summary: With an interesting hexagonal leg profile, an average ball head, a decent carrying bag all in a fairly light package, this tripod may be consider by the owners of a SLR-like or point-and-shoot cameras who want a quick buy. But again, if you care about how much weight you carry with you and care less about quality than practicality, why would you spend over $100 for something significantly heavier than your camera.
Summary: This tripod is the best ever. Its in budget price, the ball-head is perfect for free adjusting, works fast. It expands into huge-ness. Considering that I'm 6'4" and it levels almost exactly to my eye. :). The bag is sturdy, and the tripod itsself is sturdy. Only it gets wobbly when you extend it fully. I think the description of the height is a bit wrong... But i havent measured my self.
Excerpt: " The Manfrotto 725B was the first tripod I ever had. I've had others since and although I still own this, it has kind of been relegated to the back of the cupboard! However, i did use this for about six months and became more than aware of its pluses and failings. At the time, I bought this from the In Focus Exhibition at the NEC for about £95 - although I believe it has come down a lot in price since then! I was aware that Manfrotto was a range ...
Conclusion: Att använda: 4 Hållbarhet: 5
Det här stativet är så lätt (1.5 kg) och kompakt (ca 0.5 meter ihopfällt) att det knappt märks att man har det med.
Jag anar att det är fler än jag som inte alltid orkar släpa med ett 4 kg-stativ när ska ut en sväng på stan? Jag märkte i alla fall att det lätt av bekvämlighetsskäl blev att mitt tyngre stativ fick vara hemma och kameran följde med ifall några fina bilder "skulle dyka upp".
Pros: Mycket lätt, kompakt, billigt, stabil kula
Cons: Ostadigt (framför allt det nedersta segmenten av benen) då det är max utfällt. Går inte att fälla ut benen 90 grader (för makrofoto).
