A decent value I think for a nice sturdy tripod.

Heavy enough to support lots of weight but light enough to carry by hand for a long distance.
Ammon
Excellent product (as are all the Manfrotto items I've purchased in the past).

I'm taking a landscape photography class, and my photography teacher (who is a professional photographer) recommended the Manfrotto brand of tripods with a ball head. This tripod measures about 28" with the mounting plate folded up, and about 26.5" with the plate folded down. It's suppose to support up to 11 lbs of weight, so is pretty durable.

I was willing to spend $200 - $300 for a good tripod, but my teacher recommended this one specifically even after I gave him my price range - and it's less than $200!

I used it a few times to test at home, and used it yesterday at a very rocky place at the beach. It worked wonderfully and easily. It's very sturdy, and I love the ball head because I can quickly adjust the angle of the camera by just using the main lock nob. Also, the ball head allows for me to adjust the camera so that it will take a picture vertically as well. It allows for easy, quick, and slight adjustments.

Also, a must-have for any tripod is a quick release system to take your camera quickly on and off your tripod if you need to do manual metering or decide you want to check out a different composition. You screw your camera onto the mounting plate, and when you do the quick release, a small square of the mount comes off and stays on the camera. I just leave this part on my camera almost all the time, since I don't really notice it's there and I don't have to screw the camera back on the tripod each time I wanna use it. I can quickly put the camera back on the tripod at any time. Just make sure you practice putting your camera on and off the tripod using the quick release system. My camera almost slipped off a couple of times because I didn't click it back onto the tripod correctly and lock it in place.

For many years my standard travel tripod was a Gitzo Reporter with a ball head on it. It was solid, stable, and weighed a ton. When I decided to sell my DSLRs in favor of one of the new mirrorless camera systems (I went with Micro-4/3rd) I realized I could downsize my tripods, too. What I decided wanted to a new Gitzo carbon fiber tripod; what my budget allowed was an aluminum one. I spent a lot of time looking at Manfrottos and some of the cheaper clones, and then I saw this tripod in a package deal at Costco at a very attractive price. I thought about it for about a few minutes as I wandered around the store- and then I went back and tossed it in my basket.

For as light as it is, this is a very stable and well built tripod- especially if you leave the center post unextended. Set up that way, I've used it for extended exposures with minimal perceptible blurring in my images. Fully extended, and braced against my body, it enables me to go with slower speeds on telephoto shots. For a beginner or student looking for their first tripod, or the traveller looking for a solid, yet very portable camera support, this is a good choice.

I was using a cheap tripod I had still (it was $7.99) on my new dSLR. The thing was so light that it wasnt stable. Also, the weight of my Canon 60D and 70-300 lens actually pulled the mount through the quick release on the cheap tripod. Now the 70-300 lens is sitting in Canons factory repair center, luckily the camera was undamaged. Do yourself a favor and don't put a nice camera on a cheap tripod!

This tripod is a great upgrade for me. Its very sturdy, and the weight is moderate which is what I wanted. Not to light (you want some weight so it isn't to flimsy and shaky with a heavier camera) but not too heavy that its a burden to take. Tension-adjustable buckles are nice, and the wrench is attached. Full hieght, no more bending over to look through the camera. I like the quick release that has a lock - no accidental releases, yet its still fairly quick, and has metal components.

A decent value I think for a nice sturdy tripod. The only thing I wish it had was a decent bubble level, this tripod has no levels. My camera has electronic levels but you loose other on screen functionality if you want to see the level indicator. I'd take off a half star for the level but round back up to 5.

This tripod is certainly a very nice upgrade for the middle class photographer! It's heavy duty enough to support a good amount of weight and very durable. Heavy enough to support lots of weight but light enough to carry by hand for a long distance. I would recommend it to any photographer who wants to step up from the 20 or 30 dollar cheap tripods to a taste of Manfrotto real tripod!

I have had Bogen tripods for 30 years. I had a heavier 3020 with a heavy ball head, and a lighter 3001. The older I get the heavier the 3020 gets, so I had been relying more and more on the lighter 3001 for hiking and the like. So when my 3001 broke, I was looking for something of equal quality comparative lightness to take its place. I liked what I read about the Manfrotto tripods and the reviews were good, and this combination of base and ball head seemed to me to give the biggest bang for the buck, so I gave it a shot. I have not been disappointed. It is lighter, expands taller, is quicker to setup, and is every bit as stable as the old Bogen. I didn't think much at first about the padding on 2 of the legs, but on a cold morning, let me tell you it is nice not having to grip that icy aluminum. The ball head is a great balance of reasonably light weight, sturdiness, smoothness, and flexibility. It holds my Pentax K-r with a 300mm f4 without issue. So far, at any rate, I couldn't be more pleased. It does everything I have asked of it with speed and stability.
