Purchased this for my wife. She hates my 6lb tripod because it's so heavy. This tripod weighs-in at half that, only 3lbs. This is something she would be willing to carry around. And it's capacity is adequate so that there is no worry about the tripod dropping the camera. (I'm often amazed people trust their $1000 cameras and lenses to some $29 Walmart special that could collapse at any moment.)

On the plus side it is light and portable, and comes with a carry-bag. The leg clamps are tight and secure. It deploys quickly, and puts away quickly.

On the minus side it is not as sturdy as my tripod (also a Manfrotto). The head is not interchangeable, and I found the head pivot lock to be a bit weak. It required a lot of twisting of the handle to get it secure. I also don't like how the camera locks into the head. It works, but is not as simple as my other tripod.

In summary, a good compromise between a heavy solid tripod and a flimsy useless one.

This is my first Manfrotto tripod and overall I'm quite pleased. It's light enough that I can take it with me on long backpacking trips (strapped to the outside of my pack). Stability has never been an issue, even during intense windstorms. Compared to the old-school JC Penney aluminum tripod I used to use this thing is great. And at just over 100 dollars I think it's a steal.

My one complaint is its fragility. The little plastic lock thing that you open when you want to raise or lower the head snapped off within a few months. It might have been weakened when I accidentally kicked the tripod over, but it didn't come off until I tried to open it to raise the head today. Just realize that if you need something that can handle some wear and tear, you may want to look for something more robust.

When I was looking for a tripod I didn't want anything dirt cheap or outrageously expensive, but I did want quality. I found the Manfrotto 7321YB M-Y Tripod with 3-Way Head, which works comfortably, very compact and light weight. The head isn't interchangeable, but a nice on-the-go tripod for those nice steady shots. The only drawback would be there's no leveler and the head cannot be changed; other than that, you won't really complain. I would recommend this to any amateur photographer.

I had the following requirements for a tripod which this tripod meets beautifully
1. Quick release legs
2. Quick release plate
3. Lightweight. Really lightweight. Under 4 pounds.
4. Able to support a digital SLR with 300 zoom lens

Price was not a major part of my selection process, but the fact that this tripod was $100 was a very nice plus.

I have used this tripod for several years now and I am very very pleased with it. It totally lived up to my expectations. I set up in a matter of seconds, all levers operate very smoothly. The only thing I did not expect it becomes very stiff to operate (i.e. change orientation, remove camera from the plate) in very cold temperatures. Doable but the normally smooth operation requires a bit of muscle. The carrying bag is very convenient, I am able to carry the tripod on my back as a sling shot when I don't need it. I also found the extra height this tripod provides very handy in some situation.

Given all the regulation at the airport I was not sure if they would allow the tripod as part of my carry on luggage along with my other photo gear. It turned out to be no problem at all on a number of trips.
I use a carry on bag to store my camera bags and a tripod and the bag did not get any extra examination or questioning.

This is a great tripod and a very reasonable price!

Tripods, in this day of Image Stabilization, are an anachronism, like film. But if you need a tripod for travel, I find this Manfrotto 7321YB the best compromise among sturdiness, packability, weight and price. The extended height is good for me (I'm 6 foot tall) yet you can mount the camera virtually at ground level. The pan head is good for about 5 lbs which means a DSLR with a short telephoto, after which it can sag. The quick release plate is easy to use and quite secure. Here's my assessment:

Sturdiness: OK except in windy conditions, when you need to hang a backpack or other weight to stabilize it.

Packability: It measures 19" when closed. If you're really tight for space, remove the pan head which brings the length down to 18"

Weight: about 2-3/4 lbs, about the same as a Nikon D90 with the 18-2000 VR Zoom.

Price: a lot less than those carbon fiber tripods

Don't buy it! I own the predecessor (718B) to this model. Shortly after the warranty expired I found all but two of the leg locks cracked at the hinges. I am not a heavy user either. I called Manfrotto and found out that it will cost between $8.15 and $9.46 to replace each of the locks plus $9.00 for shipping. I was going to replace all nine of the leg locks but am having second thoughts since the total for the parts and shipping would be $90.00. What good is having an otherwise solidly built tripod if the legs won't stay extended? All I have now is a heavy 24" tripod. I own cheaper and older Slik tripods with the same style of leg locks that have no problems. This is not what I expected from a Manfrotto product.
