I am a amature photographer who focuses on wildlife, mainly birds. I typically used the tripod with a nikon D300 with Tamron 200-500mm and a Manfrotto 393 Heavy Telephoto Lens Support. The weight of these items falls well within the 19.8 capacity listed on this site.
I have owned this tripod for 2 years now. Used it on many hikes and in blinds. I used to use a similar Manfrotto tripod made of aluminum. I really appreciate the lighter weight after a 12 mile hike. This is very sturdy and does a good job of getting low to the ground.
This is my first carbon fiber tripod legs. A step up from the cheaper all in one tripods I've used in the past and I would say well worth the upgrade. I've done some practice long exposure night shots in my back yard and it's night and day compared to what I was using before.
Everything is great except it doesn't lock when open like those of the previous version design.
Over the last few weeks I have used the tripod in a number of settings. I have found the tripod to be very high quality. Some of my complaints are the same you'll see in other reviews of the product: no hole/hook to hang a center weight, lack of an ability to further hold the tripod down with peg...
I used to purchase to upgrade my aluminum Mafrotto tripod. The difference in the comparison between my old tripods weight and the new one is very noticeable. The leg height adjustments are very easy to make. All in all I am very pleased with my purchase.
I owned a different Manfrotto tripod and loved it for the flip-locks. To be honest, I don't like the twisting knobs because I can't instinctively turn them the correct way. So I found myself needing to shoot from near the ground and needed a tripod that could go really low.
I would give this 5 stars without a doubt except on very simple design flaw that can ruin your entire photo journey quickly! The little (probably .02 cent) clip on the bottom of the extender popped off the very first time I used it in the field. The first time!
STURDY. EASY TO OPEN, SECURE IN WINDY CODITIONS. OPENS FASTER THAN LEGS WITH TWISTED LOCKS.
No problems with MT055CXPRO4 carbon fiber tripod, light weight and sets up fast. The MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO Ball Head Plate mounting bolt came loose after about half hour of use, after some Loctite no further problems. This is my first ball head and I really like the speed of set up.
