      Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT214 Tripod:

      I purchased the Induro CT214 tripod about two weeks ago after researching various manufacturers/models vs. price. A component on my Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 carbon fiber tripod had broken: where the center column rotates through a mechanism at the top of the tripod to reposition it from a vertical to a horizontal orientation for low-to-the-ground shots. The Manfrotto is being repaired at no charge under their extended warranty; however the required part was not in stock in the US and is therefore being shipped from Italy – a minimum 4 week turnaround. I did not want to be without a tripod for that length of time. Other than this specific problem I like the Manfrotto and will keep it when the repair is completed; however it will now serve as a backup.

      I use a tripod for all of my landscape, macro/close-up, and long exposure photography. During the time that I've used the Induro CT214 it is well designed, solidly constructed, yet lightweight. Adjusting the legs uses a one half-twist of knobs vs. Manfrotto's flip-type levers. The knobs are very easy to use and the legs slide up/down very smoothly. The center column also slides up/down effortlessly with a simple twist of the locking collar. The Induro center column feels "solid"; there's no play when it is partially extended. The column that comes with the CT214 permits you to get low, but not to nearly ground level since the bottom of the column will hit the ground when the legs are spread apart. So, Induro sells a very short column. It's very easy to swap the long column for the much shorter one. I agree with what other reviewers have also noted: for the price, Induro should include the short column as part of their total package. I've decided to use the short column as my default configuration since extending the column on any tripod can impact stability and make the camera more susceptible to vibrations. When my 5D Miii is mounted on my ball head the viewfinder is at a perfect height for me (5' 8") using the short center column. I keep the standard-length column in Induro's carrying case should I need to install it when in the field.

      A final comment: a unique advantage to Manfrotto's center column flip design that I have used on several occasions is that I can extend the center column out horizontally to take a straight-down shot without the legs of the tripod interfering with my field of view. The CT214 does not have that design feature but, thus far, I haven't found it to be a problem when (for example) I want to take a straight down shot of, say, a flower.

            I've only had this tripod for a few days but it's already seen a lot of action. Used at 35 degrees to photograph the Ship Rock formation in New Mexico and in the heat of the afternoon to take a sweeping panorama of Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ. This afternoon it goes into the dust and sand of Antelope Canyon and I expect it will do very well. Find it to be stable and easy to work with. Nothing to complain about so far but I'll keep you posted.

            It's a Friday, and I'm tired and B&H Photo is telling me I need to submit a review. I've owned the tripod for about two weeks, not enough time for a solid review, but I can assure you that it's just what I expected, and I have every confidence the product will last.

                Upgraded from a Manfrotto Aluminum tripod which was just too heavy to carry around. I will use my Induro mainly for landscape and macro photography. It seems light enough to hike with yet is very sturdy. I have paired it with a Acratech GP ball head and that makes for a very light package. I debated between a Gitzo (way over priced) and a Manfrotto (didn't like the leg clips for backpacking). The leg locks on this tripod are very easy to undo, little effort required as opposed to the clip locks on some tripods. And the Induro tripod comes with a case and spikes. Seems very well made for a very nice price.

                  Yes, this tripod is that good. I'm not surprised to see that most people have given it 5 stars. I fell in love as soon as I pulled it out of the box. The fit and finish leaves nothing to be desired. The legs extend smoothly, the twist locks as well as the centre column lock are a pleasure to use, and the hook disk at the base of the centre column is designed in such a way that the legs are offered a lot of protection when closing them. And best of all, the warranty period is extended to 10 years after registration.

                  If I were to make one complaint it would be the lack of rubber ring under the plate at the top of the centre column to dampen any "fall."

                    Lightweight; legs are sturdy even when expanded to full height. The latches for each leg section work great and are fast and easy to operate. Nice padding on the legs; tool kit with included metal spikes is a nice touch as is the tripod case. Even without the rebate of $ this purchase was an excellent value.

                      Perfect tripod for my 4x5

                      By Clayton

                      from New Zealand

                      Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT214 Tripod:

                      I bought this tripod to use with my Linhof technikardan 45, and couldn't be happier. I'm traveling around a lot at the moment so I wanted something that was both light and able to hold a 4x5. When I was researching for this tripod I was struggling to find a review that said if it would hold a 4x5 camera that is a similar weight to the Technikardan. So if anyone is having the same worry, I found it to be perfect. I never fully extend the legs, and shoot at about shoulder height. With my shoulder bag on the bottom hook it is very stable. simplistic all the locks and levers are for adjustments, they are so easy to use.

                      Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT214 Tripod:

                      This tripod is built very well, has a compact form factor and is extremely stable. I ordered both the CT314 and CT214 as I was undecided in which would better fit my needs. After much consideration, the bulkier size of the 314 meant it had to go back to B&H. I just didn't need the additional size for my set-up. The only downside to the 214 v. 314, other than the increased stability for people with long lenses, is the extended height. I'm 6'1" and with the ballhead attached, I have to lean over. Although this will always be the downside to a compact tripod. But this 214 is an excellent compromise.

                        Solid, light weight, all expected features. No problem with heavy DSLR and Long and Heavy lens.

                              This is a great tripod. It is simple, well-built, and strong.

                              I will likely be an Induro customer for years to come.

                                Used about 4 weeks.
                                Perfect size for travel. Will fit in my smaller suitcase when traveling.
                                No negatives so far.

                                Like the build quality, supports my Canon 7D with a 70 to 200 lens. Easy to deploy. Fits very well on my Think tank backpack. Reasonable height for my six foot. I don't need to bend down to see through the view finder.

                                  I needed a a sturdy tripod for my metal Toyo view camera, but it had to be stable, lightweight and compact. This tripod meets those requirements and the built in level is a necessity for proper orientation when using large format.

                                    Purchased and used this tripod for Iceland trip (heavy weather and winds). Worked great but was light enough for travel via air. Fit into luggage no issue. No problems with the operation of the tripod and kept camera setup (DSLR + WA lens) stable during wind and on uneven terrain. Will be purchasing the additional short center column next as this was limited without it.

                                        I bought this tripod to support my fiance's 700D with a 100-400mm lens and it is exactly what I wanted. We mostly shoot wildlife and the tripod is light enough to carry with us. The height is perfect for her since she is 5'4", and it is very sturdy and obviously well-built! I am very pleased so far with this purchase.

                                        Very happy with this tripod. I did a lot of research on lightweight yet reliable tripods and read several articles that said Induros were equivalent to Gitzos in quality yet were far less expensive. I love how light and sturdy this tripod is. Even with the Induro ball head attached, it is still incredibly light and have no concerns with the stability of my camera when attached - bonus too is that the tripod fits in the included carrying bag with the ball head attached. Set up is a little slow with twisting each of the leg sections to fully extend but they lock securely and to a good height. Highly recommend to anyone. (Recommend the accompanying BHB2 ball head too!)

                                          It is steady and well built.
                                          No strong wind or wave can shake the tripod.
                                          The rotatable knobs are excellent and easily accessible in any season
                                          The price is really worth and quality is comparable to Gitzo tripods
