      We use this for our church video. These are 100 times better than the old tripods we used to employ and take up almost no space.

      Comments about Manfrotto 385 Air Cushioned Center Post:

      The column does exactly what it looks like it would do. But I do wish that it had some adjustment for leveling. I have this mounted on a cart that I use for remote in-house corporate recording and I don't always have a level floor. I've not yet found something that might go between the column and the fluid head for leveling, but admit that it might be out there.
