    I’ve used this tripod for a couple of months with my Sony a7III, smallrig cage, with two lights and a Rode mic. Holds up pretty good. I highly recommend this. If not this particular tripod. I recommend the company.

    I like the build quality of this tripd and the features that allow to adjust heights and rotate. I do think the head is a little stiffer than I like, which is why I'm not giving 5 stars. I also like the way the legs extend, they are much more sturdy than some others I've used. I am very happy with it, though, and can see using it far into the future.

    This is a fantastic tripod, hands down. Light enough to carry around but not so light that you would worry about putting your $1000+ photography equipment on it. My only little gripe is the mechanism to camera base is a little weird between sliding, button release, and screw fastener it was a little confusing to figure out which way was front and back. I got it, but it took a few minutes of fiddling.

    One of the best tripods we have invested in. And this comes from the experience of using 5 other tripods with fluid heads that simply don’t feel great, or preform as smooth. I really do enjoy getting smooth pan and motions with the camera with this tripod. The quick release head is actually a big reason why I enjoy this product, instead of the typical quick release of still tripods, this one gives an extra step in reassurance that you have full control how the camera comes off. The legs are sturdy and great quality, even being able to put the camera closer to the ground, just an extra add on for different angles that most other tripods don’t do well, or don’t do at all. My issue is the support for the company, when the handle broke (it being the weakest link that broke off), they did not respond to my warranty claim, so I purchased another one with great support then.

    This tripod is a pretty sturdy tripod good for mirrorless setups I probably wouldn’t put a 80D and 70-200 on this but I can get away with my a7iii and 24-70. The pan motion screw does not have a lot of play in it which is kind of disappointing. But for the price is still a very nicely build sturdy tripod. It’s what you should expect from a manfrotto.

    It works excellent, the only thing I would say is that, the base plate where you screw into the camera is long and if you're using it with a camera with long lens like a 70-200mm lens then you might be able to fit it on. Unless you adjust it so that the camera sits at the end and you don't have to worry about if the lens will fit.

    Bought it for a camera so I guess its my fault that it's kind of awkward to use/hard to mount the camera, when it's meant for a video camera. Either way, it is sturdy and I'm fairly certain a strong gust won't knock it down. I specifically got this one because my local Best Buy had it on a open box markdown and I thought it would mount a DSLR just as well as a video camera. I believe I should be able to purchase some sort of adapter, but for now I have it kind of ghetto rigged. Either way, it works and does what I need it to do and I am happy (as a tall person) that it goes a bit higher than most tripods.

    Great tri-pod. Been using it to take night photos of the sky when we’re able to drive up in the mountains to a dark sky location. Only complaint is that when purchased it was missing a screw. I went on Amazon and had to buy a new platform but I mean I guess I have a spare now.

    Overall, I'm satisfied with the tripod. For the price, I wish there were a pan/tilt lock, not just a tension knob. I worry that it will wear out quickly, as there is already a bit more "give" than I prefer. Less expensive models include carrying cases, so not sure why this does not. That said, I like the weight, size, and ease of use of this tripod, and am generally happy with the construction.

    Awesome tripod with great fluid head

    This is a very light tripod. Very smooth fluid head. I find myself wishing it was just a little bit taller, but overall I'm very happy with it. Build quality is top notch, and you can lock basically any part of the head. I do wish there was a hook on the bottom to hang a weight or other accessory, but that's easy enough to add. I would definitely suggest this product to a friend.

    Great tripod for many situations. Solid and can handle reasonably big cameras although I might put some anchoring weight on it if I had a big heavy lens on the camera.
