I needed a beast of a tripod and this is the one, folks. If a studio camera suspender is out of the realm for you but a tiny tripod just won't do, this is the best of both worlds. It is heavy- too heavy to use as an excursion tripod but definitely doable to travel to studios or on-location shoots.

This tripod is a monster, and I LOVE it. I got this beast for two main reasons: 1. I needed a high vantage point for the shooting I do 2. I needed a STABLE platform for my camera, to accommodate consistent frame alignment while shooting over a period of some time.

I bought this because after 9 years my previous Manfrotto tripod broke where the upper and lower legs join. I needed something sturdier. This tripod is definitely set up for heavy duty support. My only complaint is, I have to open and close the legs every day in my studio.

That's what the assistants have named it: the beast However it is exactly what your looking for when it comes to solid support with no consideration with regards to it's weight.. I love it... but I'm not the one who has to carry it. My assistants might have a different opinion of it....

I use this tripod very rarely, but it goes in the car with me on every architectural shoot that has an exterior angle I need to capture. When I need to get above foreground distractions or get a more balanced pov this tripod has the height.

As an architectural photographer, height is something that I just can't get around sometimes. This tripod is great. Heavy, but great. It dwarfs my D800, so it looks a bit funny, but so what. I've paired it with my standard 410 head, so it's perfect for what I need it for. Will it travel with me?

Heavy duty and well made without being over the top and too heavy. Good value and adaptable tripod. I also bought the Manfrotto 181B folding dolly, which seems to work well so far!

Strength: SUPER tall!, Overly stable, fantastic build quality and truly smooth operation. NEVER a quiver out of it! Weakness: Heavy at 17 pounds without a head, but this is NOT made for hobbiests! Manfrotto's finest is on display in this tripod.

This is the best tripod on the market. I am approaching twenty five years as a pro and I have tried nearly all the tripods on the market. I own many but this is my go-to pod of tri! I use this about 98% of my working time as a pro. If you are thinking about it just get it, you wont regret it.
