Covers a lot of bases

Food Photographer, B&H Photo
9 October 2015
  • Excerpt: I recently had to upgrade to get the extra height needed to photograph overhead on a table. This tripod did a great job, super steady and a monster. It's not light by any means, so if you're thinking carbon fiber here is going to help with that forget it.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use
  • Cons: Bulky

  • Excerpt: I will use this tripod most of the time. I also do a lot of night shoots and I don't have to worry so much about knocking it over with my camera on it. I love how heavy it is. I would not use it if you go on long hikes. It was never meant for that.

A tank

Solid tripod

Saadat, B&H Photo
22 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Tripod is as advertised, well built and solid. Only draw back is weight, cannot be used for wild / nature photography. If you are into macro photography, I would recommend the none rapid column version which would allow you precise centre column height adjustment.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use

Memories are Captured, Adorama
4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This tripod is heavy, expensive and it's well worth it. I now have three tripods all from Manfrotto, the four sections 190, 055 and 057. While the other two are great in their own ways, the 057 is just so much sturdier.

Perfect! Just what I needed/wanted!

  • Excerpt: I love this tripod! I have used it for portrait work, sports and time lapse- completely solid but not heavy. Awesome with the Manfrotto 057 Mag Ball Head. I have used my 1DX and 5D MkIII with battery pack and it is solid as a rock. Smooth legs and easy action.

Love Carbon Fiber!

Photowalker, B&H Photo
7 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I use the tripod almost all of the time during photography. This tripod is big, tall and very solid. I'm 6ft 2in tall and this tripod goes way over my head! It's heavier than my previous tripods, but I'll carry the 8 pounds anywhere to get the solid platform.
  • Pros: Great Stability, Heavy For Great Stability

Best Tripod I ever owned

Bad Benny, B&H Photo
20 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Extremely stable tripod. Maximum height (2m +) is a real plus, The viewfinder of the camera can be at eye height, which I never had before with other tripods. On the downside, all the benefits such as stability and height come at a price: it is big and heavy
  • Pros: Good Stability, Maximun Height
  • Cons: Heavy
