    Though this is meant as a heavy studio tripod, I bought it to use as a sturdy base for a portable astrophotography setup. I needed it to support up to 20lbs of equipment that would be rotating on a gear, and couldn't move a millimeter. And I have to say, as long as there was little to no wind, this worked perfectly. Very pleased with it, though I would recommend using it for applications where you won't have to carry it much, as it is very heavy. If you know that going into it, though, then this is a highly recommended base.

    OK for studio work for large load, height is good, but...
    For transporting and out of studio work it is cumbersome and fussy. Leg struts bend and damage easily, takes time to set up. Feet spikes don't bite into ice (hockey team pics).
    For studio work, it's fine for portraiture but awkward to move around. Doesn't 'go low' for unique product shots.
    If you buy this, get a second (lighter) tripod for other uses.

            Good for the money. A heavier one would be better, but would cost more.

            I bought this tripod to eliminate shakiness and it ended up doing that and much more. This tripod is heavy duty and definitely worth every penny.

                        I use the 028B as part of a multicamera setup. I mount a motorized pan & tilt head on it. I chose these legs for the height - 7.45 feet(8.27m)! It's the third one I've owned.

                                  We currently use this product for our weekend celebrations at The Vineyard Church. This is way taller than we expected, but that is one thing that is great about it! We needed a tall tripod and we got it! There aren't really any things that are bad about this product!

                                    I'm mainly a real estate photographer, using lots of bracketed photos at slow shutter speeds, and I do some sports videography (dslr) for fun. This tripod is heavy but not cumbersome. I really like the build quality and it is quite stable even when only opened to a small footprint. For video, it solidly supports my 4 foot slider. I just need to complement it with a stronger video head.

                                    Comments about Manfrotto 028B Studio Pro Triman Tripod Legs (Black):

                                    What's up fellow camera fiends? Hope you're all having a great day! I just received my Manfrotto 028B Studio Pro in the mail and let me tell you it is an impressive piece of kit. The legs are very solid and feel like they could take a beating better than Tito Ortiz in his last fight. The only drawback I can see is the weight. Obvioulsy it's not a problem for me due to my super strength, but normal humans would probably find it combersome to carry for long periods. This is definately a studio tripod. It does come with a strap/sling in case you have to carry it from storage to the studio, which is nice. All in all, I found this tripod to be very satisfying.

                                                Easy Setup, Very Sturdy and Travels well. I bought this tripod for a church event and was amazed at how easy it was for me to use. Having the capability to raise and lower the height of the tripod was essential. I would suggest this product to anyone looking for a great tripod.

                                                  Comments about Manfrotto 028B Studio Pro Triman Tripod Legs (Black):

                                                  My other tripod is not equiped to extend in height.
                                                  I was convinced to build a platform to film an event that did not include a stage of any kind. I knew that B&H provided the Manfrotto 028B Studio Pro Triman Tripod Legs that has a crank to extend the neck, along with extra leg extentions to extend over seven feet in height, which, with the head (501HDV Pro Fluid Video Head) and Camera (Sony Digital Handycam DCR-vx2000 NTSC), and necessary attachments, to extended another foot.
                                                  Eight Feet is enough height to film above heads and make a presentable presentation to make a Five Star DVD of most any event. Now, there is no need to build a platform. Thanks for listening.
