Two flaws that in my opinion withhold a 5-star review: 1) The locking mechanism is often sticky (maybe that's a good thing ensuring my camera doesn't take a spill) but it took a while to figure out that pressing down on the locking button of the mechanism will retract it far better than the pin...

After buying inexpensive (cheap) tripods since forever; I finally got tired of the positions slipping, difficult adjustments, etc.This is a quality tripod which is fast and easy to use and adjust.Don't waste your money on lousy tripods. They are not worth the aggravation.

We purchased this tripod for use with our Leica 82 birding scope. It's light enough that I don't mind carrying it on 2+ hour walks. Extremely solid construction and very stable. At this price point there really isn't anything better on the market. Manfrotto is an industry standard for a reason.

the only concern is the plate where you put the camera on the tripod

I should have bought years ago!I have been using cheap tripods for years with OK results.Now that I have this professional tripod, I wish I had bought it years ago.It is very well crafted and easy to use. It is very solid and the head allows me to very easily snap the camera on to the head.

Very sturdy and heavy enough to prevent movement as you move the fluid head. Fluid head moves really well and is easy to shoot with.

I bought this tripod to use with my Canon EOS MKIV with telephoto lenses and am very pleased overall with my purchase. I wouldn't want to carry it around all day but it provides solid support for my equipment when shooting with a tripod.

Manfrotto MT290XTA3US 290 Xtra 3-Sec Aluminum Tripod I have used many "cheap" "budget" tripods in the past before buying this tripod. I searched and searched for many cheap alternatives but it just didn't do the job right. Cheap/Budget tripods are fine, you can make it work IF you have the TIME.
