Used this tripod for panoramic photography, indoor and outdoor commercial, and playing with old Sinar Norma large format rail camera.In many things, it is very solid. The girth of the legs when you first see it is surprising, and the steadiness when set up makes you confident that this will be a...

I will use this tripod most of the time. I also do a lot of night shoots and I don't have to worry so much about knocking it over with my camera on it. I love how heavy it is. I would not use it if you go on long hikes. It was never meant for that.

Tripod is as advertised, well built and solid.Only draw back is weight, cannot be used for wild / nature photography. If you are into macro photography, I would recommend the none rapid column version which would allow you precise centre column height adjustment.

I use the tripod almost all of the time during photography. This tripod is big, tall and very solid. I'm 6ft 2in tall and this tripod goes way over my head! It's heavier than my previous tripods, but I'll carry the 8 pounds anywhere to get the solid platform.

Great height for tall photographers and shooting in undulating terrain, yet versatile enough to shoot close to the ground. Lightweight for it's size. quick release legs are great. Love this beast of a tripod.

Bought this tripod because I was looking to buy ONE tripod. One that had some weight savings and most of all, stability. This tripod meets or surpasses all of that as it's the most massive and beefy tripod I've ever seen.

Rock solid performance. Heavy duty construction and seems very road worthy. Does it's job and performs very well. Super stable, works fantastic with the 057 w/Q5 quick release. I can see it lasting me for life. It's great in situations where you're in a windy situation outside.

At last, Manfrotto have made a Tripod sturdy enough to take long lenses and heavier cameras,. This does not move and if you require total steadiness for long exposure shots, this is perfect, This tripod represents value for money when compared to other well know Tripod makers, and will stand up to...

    Durable, Great Features, Simple Controls

I find this tripod a bit of a mixed bag.<br />Price, Height and the fact thats its Carbon fibre are all positives.<br /><br />However i find its still lacking in the old torsional rigidity front and at maximum leg extension (without column) its got quite a bit of sway.
