I bought this about a year go with the aim of having a smaller, lightweight carbon tripod. After of a year of intermittent use, it's literally falling apart. In the field yesterday I thought it was a bit loose and the top assembly simply pulled right out of the vertical post.
I am very happy with the Manfrotto carbon fiber legs so far. I have a great ball head I wanted to re-use and I'm glad there was no ball head included with this purchase. It would have ended up in a drawer.
This is my first Carbon Fiber Tripod! I love it!
It's lightweight, durable and, most importantly, sturdy. Only thing it's lacking is a hook on the center column, which could help make it sturdier in windy conditions. Plus I wouldn't have to put my backpack on the ground.
My main objective in obtaining this tripod was to be able to take it hiking/camping. It's lightweight, although, with a good ball head it's not as lightweight as I'd hoped. The adjustable leg lock tension is a plus. The screw for securing ball heads is also an unexpected extra.
Great leg latches that actually give a great deal of confidence when they snap. It is both light and very sturdy. The only negative is that the center column is very difficult to raise and lower when a camera is attached (which is the only time I would use it, right?
I will happily give this item top ratings, so there is nothing wrong with the tripod. It is sturdy, and the perfect height for me as I am 5"7 and with a ball head and a tall camera, it comes right up to eye level and then later, my plan is to buy an oversized tripod for other needs later on.
It basically is everything the specs say it is. However, not having marking on the lower leg section seems like a big miss. (I'm 5'4" and I can't see through my viewfinder with the legs fully extended) Too bad one has to take a light tripod and then put a beast of a head on it if you want to match...
When I started off in DSLR photography, I originally got a Giottos carbon-fiber tripod. It was nice and compact when folded, but I ultimately wasn't satisfied with the stability of the legs. Recently, I traded in for this Manfrotto 190CXPro3, and while bulkier, it's much more stable fully-extended.
