          Comments about Manfrotto Super Salon 280 Camera Stand - 9':

          First time user for pro Camera Stands. I saw the famous Fobas and felt the smooth action of it. Manfrotto is a bit "rougher" in movments and everything but considering the huge price difference this is an Excellent stand. I didn't find it so heavy to move. I did however adjast a litthe central screw but not sure if that made a noticeble difference.
          Also got the extension arm, it is quite useful.
          Would I buy it again: yes
          Do I recomand it: Yes

                Not a Foba but nowhere near the price. Does the job nicely.

                    I totally understand what the above photographer said about the stand not moving without a ton of effort. I had the same problem but it is easily resovled by flipping it on its side and adjusting the wheel hight by an adjustment bolt. Once this is done the Super Salon become well worth the money.

                    Does not roll easily on the floor - requires a lot of power to move. I had a much cheaper Chinese stand that moved effortlessly. Otherwise this one is perfect - has all the angles and movements you could possibly want. I did not have a chance to check this, but I believe Cambo stands move better on the floor.
