I have been a professional photographer for over 44 years. I have owned Bogen/Manfrotto equipment for most of my career. I must say, this Dual 290 with 90 degree center column is one of their best products yet. It is extremely sturdy with very modest weight.
This tripod is mediocre when it comes to taking pictures and impossible for video. Mainly because of the ball head and lack of adjustments. Manfrotto is a great brand for tripods, this one is not worth the price in my book.
I use this primarily for overhead flat lay shots. It's stable enough for my Canon 6D and a 24-70mm lens so I'm very happy. I might eventually get a sand bag if I shoot outdoors, especially if I use it at maximum height. But so far, I love it.
Great tripod, Holds camera steady. The only minor issue which is really me, I didn't realize that there were two sets of instructions, one for the tripod and one for the head. once I figured that out, smooth sailing.
I used this tripod on a recent trip to a family reunion. It worked great for what I used it for. The tripod is easy to fold up and move out of the way. I really liked the quick release on the ball head, it worked a lot better than other quick releases that I had in the past.
Love the fact that camera is eye level without centre column.
Feels very steady with my compact mirrorless camera, but is rated for and feels like it would be equally solid with something heavier. Definitely easy to open and close and to switch to horizontal.
I bought this to carry with me on a trip to see the Northern lights in Alaska. I considered lighter, more travel-style tripods, but I decided I wanted something that would be good for more that that one trip. This unit is plenty light enough for travel.
I've had only one opportunity to use it so far, but was able to utilize many of it's features. Love the ball head, camera locking feature, and leg locks -- looking forward to using it in the future.
Stable. Is overkill for my D3300 and holds my D810 well. Aluminum gets cold really fast at night and only has one rubber covered upper leg. Small enough to fit in a large carry on suitcase when the ball head mount is removed. Feels solid on the ground.
