      I bough two of these to go with the 209 Tabletop Tripod. Well worth the money. I stack them end to end and can get a total "solid" height of 18" The description states 10" but at full extension it can wobble so it's best to only extend it to around 9" It's a bit heavy being all metal but IMHO well worth the weigth. It hard to find well built products anymore.

      I have had this for 1 ½ year.
      Use it together with the Manfrotto 209 tabletop tripod. Easy to pack and use.

      It is OK but the screw for regulating the height of the two sections is difficult to tighten for sturdy use. As a result of this I have tightened it so hard that I can't loosen it.

      If used with a small DSLR, the column is flimsy in the connection.

        Along with a table top tripod this is great for giving my camera a bit of extra height.

        Comments about Manfrotto 259B Extension Column for 209 Tabletop Tripod - 10":

        I bought this to use for the Manfrotto 209 (3007)table top tripod and Manfrotto 128LP micro fluid head while shooting video with a Canon HF-G20 camera. The extension had been fully extended so at first glance (and installation) I thought it was a little too tall and had wished for a cut down version until I realized it will collapse down to 5". At its shortened length, the tripod is much more stable than when the extension is fully open. Even at 10 inches my lightweight G20 works reasonably well. At 5" the mount articulates just shy of 90 degrees up and down. I'm sure I can fashion a weight to slip over the tripod extension making it a much more stable platform. The only thing I don't like about it is there should be something at the both ends to help screw it to the tripod and head. It has about a quarter inch of knurling at the lower end which is way too small to get your fingers on and nothing at the top. Now that I know it can collapse to 5", it packs up even smaller than I originally thought.

            I do have a table top 209 series, and with this rod, it complete the tripod. Makes it more usable. It supports my DSLR and 50mm lens pretty well.

                  It does what one would expect it to. I bought this to use as an accessory for allowing an Apollo softbox to tilt - it works well for that too.

                  The 259B Extention Column for the 209 tabletop tripod and the 492 Micro Ball Head really gives you a very usefully height advantage and is a great addition to get that perfect shot.

                    I purchased this for use with the Manfrotto Tabletop Tripod and 492 Micro Ball Head. It's stable and adds up to 10" of height, which can be quite useful. For greatest stability, don't extend it fully.

                      I bough two of these to go with the 209 Tabletop Tripod. Well worth the money. I stack them end to end and can get a total "solid" height of 18" The description states 10" but at full extension it can wobble so it's best to only extend it to around 9" It's a bit heavy being all metal but IMHO well worth the weigth. It hard to find well built products anymore.
