      Ok, but fails to meet expectations

      I had high hopes for this being a Manfrotto, after reading many reviews for various tripods I thought Manfrotto was a brand name that could be trusted. The tripod is very slick and looks very nice. The legs are very stable and easy to operate. Where this tripod fails greatly is in the design of the tightening bolts on the fluid head. They go from totally tight to all the way lose in 1/4 of a turn which limits your ability to have it finely adjusted. Also the tightening bolt that tightens the up and down movement doesn't get all the way tight, it seems like the bolt is not long enough. Because of these reasons and the price of the tripod I returned it. My search continues.

      easy to use and has the feel of a very well made product which it is. Firm, locking extensions on legs of tripod and very smooth rotation of camera mount and base. Good balance.

      Purchased a new Nikon D7500 DSLR camera and needed a new tripod. The AM at Best Buy in Danbury matched the price for me on a similar one on sale at Amazon and it was well worth every penny.

      I would highly recommend this. The movement is fluid in it and the ability to use the plate going from this tripod to other mounts makes for quick easy changes.

      Decent lightweight tripod, fluid head is a stretch

      For $200+ you get a decent lightweight tripod, but the fluid head description is a stretch. If you need truly fluid pans and tilts, look into a heavier duty manfroto.

      We needed a lightweight tripod to carry along in case we needed it. This has worked out well for us. Nice, fluid head for video panning. Very pleased with this purchase.

      I chose this tripod because of the flipping lockers, I did not want the kind you twist, too much hassel. Tripod has treated me well so far.
