I ran a couple of quick tests between the Manfrotto 057 and a RRS TVC-34L where I shot a 2 sec exposure with a 135 f/2 lens on a Canon 5DS R during the exposure I vibrated the tripods to simulate windy conditions. Both tripods were extended fully with with the center columns also fully extended.
As other reviews have pointed out, this tripod is heavier than other carbon fiber tripods. However, it is very manageable for the size, but not something I would take hiking up the mountains.
I shoot a lot of wildlife and recently upgraded to a 600 MM lens. My recent Manfratto tripod was good up to 20 # and was concerned about handling the weight of 18# including camera base. I reviewed the ratings and everyone was right about the weight and sturdiness of this tripod.
This is a hearty-duty, tall tripod that is excellent for heavy camera/lens combinations for use in still or video photography.
I recently had to upgrade to get the extra height needed to photograph overhead on a table. This tripod did a great job, super steady and a monster. It's not light by any means, so if you're thinking carbon fiber here is going to help with that forget it.
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.
This tripod is sturdy yet lightweight. For the quality, it is priced right!
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...
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 love this tripod! I have used it for portrait work, sports and time lapse- completely solid but not heavy. Awesome with the Manfrotto 057 Mag Ball Head. I have used my 1DX and 5D MkIII with battery pack and it is solid as a rock. Smooth legs and easy action.
