      Answer

      Yes I use my manfrotto with my Nikon D5300 & Nikkor 70-300mm lens. While it does hold the weight quite well I would be sure to use a counterweight for extra center pull. I use my camera pack. And I always make sure I have a leg out in front of the camera in the direction I am shooting to compensate for the lens weight. Hope this answer helps.

        can i do panoramic without it moving vertically ?   (10 Answers)

        I want it to pan left and right and not up and down. I see the feature that keeps it from going side to side but want to lock it from going up and down.

          Sony Handycam?   (5 Answers)

          Hey guys I was wondering if anyone uses this tripod with a Sony Handycam or know if it will work with one? I was planning on purchasing one of these along with it. I heard that this tripod could not handle really large cameras or camcorders. Therefore, would a Sony Handycam prove too bulky or heavy for this tripod?

                Answer

                Yes, it will support any camera with a 1/4 inch thread. However, if you put a lens that makes the weight over 13 pounds you will want something else.

                Answer

                Yes, it will hold your Nikon D750 with the 24-70 lens (which is a little heavy). This is how I use the Tripod... Can't speak to the backpack question.

                I believe the capacity on this one is small, I think it was 3.3 lbs.on the head and 6 lbs on the legs, but my canon sl1 with 70-300 lens was a bit scary.

              How does it do windy conditions?   (5 Answers)

              I have an Olympus EM10, so not very heavy, but will the winds in Fairbanks, Alaska knock it over?

                Answer

                definately! It does have a hook, but legs are thin. Wt limit is 3.3 lbs I believe. Maybe with your camera and a wt from the center hook you would be fine. Depends on how heavy your camera is. I had a telephoto lens and would say no. But if yours is a point and shoot, it's perfect, easy to use, quick set up, good head. Locks are good too.
