Top Customer Reviews
Especially, you have to choose carefully options such as flashlight or lens for DSLR.
The weight and portability of the product are good, but the durability and efficiency of the product is very low.
My review probably does deserve the 0 out of 2 helpful rating so I'll update for the sake of any prospective buyers.
After owning this tripod for a while and buying 2 others, I can definitely say that there ARE better tripods available for under $70. If that's your budget, check out Dolica, they make great stuff in the $50 range.
Increase your budget a little more to $120 and check out ProAm USA's heavy duty tripod. The build quality is epic and it'll support 80lbs without flinching. It's not even that heavy to carry around.
In regards to this manfrotto tripod, I am a fan of the pistol grip. It works quite well and is ergonomic. Due to my increasing photo and video equipment arsenal, this tripod has unfortunately been relegated to back up duty. It just isn't beefy to give me the support that I need but that's no fault of its own.
I do feel that it, like most other Manfrotto gear, is a little over priced considering what else is available on the market.
Only other legitimate gripe about this tripod and its design is the camera mount. It's basically a small circular locking pin of sorts that screws into your camera and then locks into the pistol grip. Pics attached. It's small and easy to lose. Lose it and the tripod is useless unless you buy a replacement mounting pin.
