I was worried this tripod wouldn't hold up to my main tripod that is a full-sized carbon-fiber manfrotto with a Really Right Stuff BH-40 head but I have been really impressed with it. I have been using the full-sized tripod for a while and was afraid that I would be making some sacrifices for size of the MeFoto, however that has not proven true.

After a solid week of shooting in Costa Rica plus a number of small time uses here are my thoughts:
- Super compact and relatively light. I only brought one large photo backpack bag to Costa Rica and this easily attached to the outside without notice, something other tripods can't do.

- Relatively easy set-up. Not the biggest fan of the screw legs (my only design complaint), however you can open them all and close them all at once when they are in the collapsed position.

- Held a Nikon D200 + 70-300 vr with absolutely no problems. Big bodies with anything larger then 70-200 may struggle at full extension, however without the very last leg section expanded it is significantly beefier.

- Monopod is super convenient and an awesome feature I use all the time now that I never knew I wanted/needed.

- Easy to take apart the legs and clean sand out of every crevice

- Ball-head is decent, obviously no RRS BH-40 but not bad for being included and held everything just fine.

Overall I would say this is nearly competes with tripods that are significantly more expensive but the size and portability makes me just want to use it from now on.

I purchased this tripod after a year trying to use my cheap tripod with a Canon t3i. I wanted a tripod that I could easily carry with me on a hike and since I found myself often in situations where I wanted a monopod, the ability to convert to a monopod was also a feature I wanted.

When I first tried this tripod out I was immediately impressed by how much of an improvement a ball head makes. Positioning me camera is easy now and it locks firmly in place without any sag. I like that the ball head is removable which means that if I later feel the need to upgrade (which as a hobbyist seems unlikely) I can do so in stages either by replacing just the ball head or just the tripod legs.

The legs extend quickly and lock firmly but were a bit stiff when adjusting the angle but this was quickly fixed with the included allen wrench.

The tripod also includes metal spikes which can replace the default rubber pads when necessary. Simply unscrew the rubber feet and screw in the spikes. I did miss them when I first pulled the tripod out of the box because they are in an inner pocket of the carrying case which is somewhat easy to miss if you don't know its there

With all sections of the legs extended the tripod can flex a bit and loses a little of its stability but I found that hanging my camera bag from the hook on the center post helped quite a bit.

Finally, converting to a monopod is reasonably quick, requiring that the leg with the foam pad be unscrewed, the hook assembly unscrewed, and the center post is then screwed onto the leg.

In summary I am very pleased with this tripod and it fulfills my travel need nicely

Purchased this tripod to take on an international trip. For work at home I have both Manfrotto and Slik tripods that are very good — and very heavy. I own another very lightweight Benro tripod with a ball head and although it's not a "serious" tripod, I liked it well enough for what it is that I was willing to give this MeFoto a try. And I like it very much.

Its main virtue is portability. It fits into a bag so small I can get it into my suitcase. And it's (pretty) lightweight.

Of course portability would have no point if the tripod weren't usable, but it definitely is. You have to accept some compromises here, obviously. To keep the tripod very packable, Benro broke the legs into several sections, and of course it's lightweight, too. It is simply not as stable as my heavy Slik tripod—but I don't expect it to be. Nevertheless the Benro is quite stable, very satisfactory, even holding a full-frame camera with a biggish Sigma lens attached, plus a flash for remote triggering.

One last point: I haven't used ball heads a lot in the past and this one took me just a little getting used to, but I rather like it. The different control knobs let me get the camera oriented exactly right, and fairly quickly. And the ball head locks tight—no worries there!

I'm rating this one five stars because it's a champ IN ITS WEIGHT CLASS and in consideration of its affordability. You can certainly find better tripods that are more stable, but you'll be hard pressed to find one that's better than the MeFoto and is also this lightweight, this inexpensive, and this compact.

Color Name: Titanium Verified Purchase
The MeFoto tripod is not a cheaply manufactured tripod. I bought it based on all the glowing reviews and the fact that I need a light and transportable tripod for traveling and walking around. I have a Slik tripod that weighs about 3 times as much and is much bigger folded and in general size. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised.

My concern was finding a tripod that was A) lightweight and good for traveling and carrying around without much fanfare. B) can hold a full-frame DSLR comfortably with a decent size lens without fear of bending or toppling over and can support up to 20 lbs. (Nikon D700 with grip + bigger lenses) C) can support any ballhead and/or comes with a decent one that truly can support some weight. The MeFoto happlily meets all my criteria!

The ballhead the tripod comes with is removable and you can easily screw on any head you want. I tried one of my "ballheads" (more like a ballhead with pistol grip) which I love, and it just didn't make sense on this tripod. I found the ballhead on the MeFoto to be more than adequate to hold my D700 with Grip + Tamron 70-300 lens without a slight budge. This small ballhead is incredible. It is smooth, easy to operate, and I am in love. I wish I could find the exact replacement ball head for my other tripods and monopod. I'd buy a few. If anyone knows of a replacement only available for purchase, please hit me up here!

The Road Trip comes with 5 extendable legs. I was leary about "twist" legs, coming from the lever type, and I find i really do love these legs! The legs are easy expand or collapse and hold in place firmly. I can easily get these legs out and setup before my old slick tripod with the "lever" type of legs.
