        Very good tripod. I am a professional bird photographer and I use the CT313 tripod with a Wimberley Gimbal Head as my primary camera support. It is light and easy to carry as well as strong and rigid, and it provides excellent support for a pro DSLR and long lens.

          Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

          This is a replacement of my CT213 that I lost on a recent trip.The CT313 is, as
          good as it get, I use it mostly for landscapes and macro photography.Much better and stable as the one I lost. The legs are strong
          and easy to handle and, since its stretch to 74", you hardly need to use the long center column so you my also get the short one to use for shooting low.
          It is a great tripod and not heavy for the size.

          Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

          This is a marvelous tripod that will hold most large rigs steady. This tripod is built extremely well. It has all of the fit and finish you would expect for well crafted carbon tripods.
          The quick minimal twist of the wrist allows you to lock and unlock the tripods legs quickly. Legs flow and retract as easily as possible. You can splay the legs out and put the tripod as close to the ground as a column will allow for those shots. I have ordered the shortest column. so that I can get lower than 15" off the ground with a ball and camera.
          I do have a problem, that will probably resolve itself as it gets broken in more. To open the legs out is not yet easy. Each leg is a two hand job. These legs are still too stiff and require a tough bit of strength spreading them out. That may sound too difficult, but I have not looked in to see if I can loosen the screws or more than two days of use work will smoother the legs. This minimal issue keeps me giving it only 4 stars.
          Any product that includes the tools, bag, and strap, in the price is working for cost camera users. I appreciate the over all ability of the sturdest tripod and recommend it as a workhorse for people that need at least 6'2" plus camera eye level.

          Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

          I gave it a four star because I have not used it much yet. I can tell right now that I am going to like this tripod very much and will update my review in five to six months. The legs and twist locks work just fine, smooth. It looks very professional and the BHL2 ballhead works fine on it. The best part, I am 6' tall, is that I can use the tripod without rasing the center column. I read reviews that said the CT313 would be over kill for the gear that I have right now. But I can always go for bigger lenses without worrying about another tripod.

              This tripod feels extremely well made, light yet solid and substantial enough to work well in the field with my Canon EOS cameras. The leg locks and center lock are easy to use,firm when closed and both the leg collars and the center collar are quick to hand. So far I am very pleased with it. I am 6'4" and it feels just about right - a good balance between portability and height. In addition it is short enough to go inside my suitcase!

                Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

                I spent quite some time researching for a duo grab-and-go astronomy & product photography tripod to save space and cost from buying both separately. I then came across this brand here while checking for a tripod in a price range of $300-500. I did some research and know more about this brand which offers aluminum and carbon tripods. I choose carbon fiber as it is lighter and has better damping factor than aluminum. This tripod has 3 leg sections for better stability. Like all Induro tripods I know, they come with 3/8" and convertible 1/4" screw that allows me to connect to Vixen alt-azimuth porta 2 mount. The central column of this tripod is ideal to raise minute height for product photography and the thick tripod legs offer good stability for my short tube 400mm focal length telescope.

                I choose this tripod and not astronomy tripods brands like Orion/Zhumell/Celestron due to height issues described below. I did consider the Manfrotto 055/190/290 series but they don't offer 1/4" screw to attach to my Vixen porta 2 head and also, the Manfrotto legs are thinner. The Benro tripod is similar to Induro tripod so may be worth looking into. The RRS/Gitzo is over my budget. Rollei tripod was considered but it has negative online reviews. Vanguard tripods seem decent but I don't like their designs.

                What is good about this tripod is that it has lower minimum height compared to dedicated astronomy tripods for observing while sitting or for product photography table shots. It also has a higher maximum height for observing while standing. This CT313 version is able to reach 159cm height without using the central column. It comes with anti-rotational grooved central column to prevent horizontal movement while adjusting the height and also a textured head rest and screw lock to prevent loosening of the attached mount head.

                I measured the dimensions of the leg sections which are around 25mm (3rd leg) to 30mm (1st leg) in external thickness. The rotational locks for quick adjustment of tripod legs are great to use. My 2 hands are able to remain in tight grip of the heavy equipment loaded tripod leg and central column unlike those levers/knobs locks where my hand has to ungrip the leg in order to lock or unlock it. The central column central lock seems to grip better than those side mounted central locks. The tripod is able to damp quickly within a second after being tapped on the 3/4 extended central column with a 400mm focal length telescope at over 100x magnification. You also get a beautifully made 2 tone black tripod.

                This tripod is not able to position the central column horizontally unlike some tripods from other brands like Benro or Manfrotto which is actually not a problem as this configuration is unstable for heavy load and I can do the same camera position by inverting the central column with better stability. The price of this tripod is high but I get a high quality carbon fiber tripod with 10 (5+5) year warranty after registration that will last a long time. The central column is not geared but gears is not as durable and is not required for around 1 hour of astronomy observation ~ 15 degree tranverse. Do take note of the folded minimum leg length of 71.5cm.

                I fully support the purchase of this tripod for my requirements. Non-telescope users or short focal lens DSLR users may consider the Induro CT213 or CT113 tripod depending on load. Those who need to fold and pack their tripod may consider the shorter Induro CTx14 series tripod and then choose one based on equipment load.

                    I've been doing this business for over 30 years, so I've experienced a lot of tripods. This has to be one of the most stable, well built tripods I've ever used....that weighs +/- 5 lbs! I've had 15+ lb. tripod that were as stable, but 5 lbs?

                    Extending and closing the legs with a half twist is just plain sweet. So easy.

                    The workmanship is beautiful and the tripod itself is one of the prettiest things I've seen with 3 legs.

                      I was looking for the best tripod for the money. This is a rock-solid beast. I am working on a fine art ptoject that requires long exposures and HDR processing and was growing frustrated with vibrations softening images. Not a problem with the CT313. This may be the last tripod I ever buy.

                        Absolutely Fantastic Tripod.

                        This tripod is extremely solid and well built. The Tripod comes with a great tool kit with replaceable feet in case you need extra footing (the tool kit also has wrenches and is great to keep with your tripod in case you want to adjust some of the finer things, or change out your plate).

                        It also comes with a fantastic carrying bag, that actually has extra room to allow the tripod to fit with a ball head attached!

                        When standing up and expanded, the legs are extremely sturdy, and I have no fear about this tripod supporting the weight of my DSLR and a long lens (70-200, 300 prime) all. Of course, it supports smaller lenses just fine too.

                        With respect to leg extension: these extend very easily, and the center column extends easily as well. All pieces maneuver the same way (with a slight ring adjustment that tightens and loosens).

                        The center column doesn't rotate so thats one less thing to fiddle with in the middle of the night or when its pitch black outside. Also nice are that the legs lock into position when expanded (and can over expand if you want to go to strange angles, and also can lock in these positions).

                        I'm happy that I saved a considerable chunk of money (after doing lots of reading) and went with this tripod over some of the others. I'm confident that I'll have this tripod forever.

                        Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

                        I decided to replace my old tripod that I had had for about fifteen years because it was wearing out. I researched the options for a higher end replacement that would provide me with good solid support and versatility. I ultimately decided on this one based upon reviews I'd read and the features it offered as well as its price which was better than some of the other high end brands offered for comparable units. I have not been dissappointed with this purchase. The tripod is very solid and gives stable support for the camera and lens combinations that I use including a 400mm telephoto and a 180mm macro that are somewhat heavy. I love the stability it provides in a lightweight package. The only drawbacks that I've found to it are that the leg locking rings require more movement than I expected and are not as convenient as the flip levers on my old tripod and the leg angle adjustment stops are not spring loaded and are therefore also less convenient than those I'd been using. Nevertheless, these are not major drawbacks and with the stability and overall functionality of the tripod, I can live with them. I also bought the Induro BHL3 ball head to go with it and the two of them work great together. I don't think I could have done better for the price I paid.

                          I use this tripod with a Nikon D700 with battery grip and a Sigma 120-300 lens. My original tripod wasn't heavy duty enough for this setup.

                            I've been researching for carbon tripods for awhile and decided on the Induro 8x CT313. I was bit skeptical with "made in China" but I have no regrets, it looks and feels like a quality engineered product. I opted for the 3 section legs instead of 4, it makes setting up the tripod to full height quicker with three less locks to twist and fuss with. This is a very solid platform for medium camera weight or less. It's super lightweight compared to my old Bogen 3021 and just as steady if not more so. The tripod base height is more than adequate for my 6' 1" frame. The self cleaning sealed twist/locks are 1/4 turn maximum to release and lock, so much faster than other tripods. The travel case is excellent quality and the nifty toolkit is nice too. I purchased the Induro BHD2 Ballhead with this tripod and the two feel perfectly matched right down to extra space in the carry case to accommodate the head. Seriously, if you're looking for a carbon fiber tripod... you should stop looking and buy this one.

                                Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

                                I recently got this solid tripod and I am quite happy with it. As soon as I took it out of the box I knew I've made the right choise over the cheaper Manfrotto and the very expensive RRS which is double the price of this one. Feels very solid, confortable and reliable,BUT, yes, there is a BUT. I don't like the cener colum so I cutted it short! yeap, is not a big deal, if you are a skillful and patient person you will have no problem with that. The reason why I did it is because sometimes I need to get as low on the ground as possible and the center colum is a pain. Induro also manufacture a shorter center colum but I find it useless since I would still have the same problem when trying to go down to the ground, for this reason I give this tripod 4 stars and not 5. It is nice that this piece of equipment comes with the tripod bag, tools and feels very solid.

                                  This updates an earlier review. The adjustable leg locks work well though they are not spring-loaded to return to a locked position. I use the spring-loaded hook at the base of the center column to hold light equipment or a lens pouch adding convenience to the setup. The spring assembly had a wider diameter than the column so it can damage the foam grips if stored with the center column extended more than a few inches, useful if you want the headless tripod to be better balanced in the bag.The internal bubble level is useful and easy to read. However if you want to ensure that you get an even pan, you need to have additional levels on the head.I do use the installable steel spikes. I suppose having the spike retract into the rubber foot could useful, but there are pros and cons even for that. The tool kit seems to be complete, I haven't had to do any tightening of the legs locks, and standard tools can be substituted if need be. The included tripod bag is useful and serves the basic function well. It is about 5.5in. longer than the tripod so it will accommodate most ball-type heads. However, it is not wide enough to accommodate the Manfroto geared heads. Consequently, I need to remove the head before using the bag.I use a Manfroto Geared head which is designed for a 1/4in. smaller diameter platform than provided by the CT313. Consequently, the vertical adjustment runs into the platform prior to reaching its designed limit. A specification not provided in any of the literature.

                                  Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

                                  I'm 6'4". I started shooting ~20 years ago with a typical bogen entry level setup (that I still have). When I originally went carbon I got a gitzo because everyone said I should, but I went with one that was too short because it had what I wanted (no center column, 2 locks per leg). When I finally woke up and realized the max height spec is more important than anything else (to match your eye level when you can/want to shoot that high) I started tripod shopping. Not wanting to make the same mistake twice I poured over specs of every tripod I could find. I wanted 2 locks per leg still (50% less work each time you use it), carbon (I shoot in salt water and I like that it doesn't get as cold in winter) and no center column (I don't use it so why carry the weight?). This was the answer. The center column has been replaced on mine with the short option. I'd go with a center platform if I could but it works fine with the short column. This setup is ROCK solid and doesn't weigh too much.

                                  The few things I'd look for next time? Something with a platform. Also, something with leg locks that "invert" or flip 180° so it's shorter when traveling. Their threaded eye for the strap broke off in the first week in the back of my car, but it's something I'd never use anyway, just remove yours when you get the tripod.

                                  Things I love: It's ROCK solid. The leg locks are amazing, so easy to grip, and the 1/4 turn lock is fantastic, even with gloves on. The weight hook is great, I put my bag under the legs.

                                  Also, I've replaced the rubber tips with gitzo convertible spikes. This way I have spikes when I need them (slippery rocks or soft ground) but I can quickly switch to rubber feet when I'm shooting inside someone's house. The threads are the same size. Induro does include both types, but they're separate units so it takes a tool and ~3 minutes to switch -vs- 30 second with the gitzos.

                                  I'm using mine with an arca swiss P0 head with a RRS lever clamp.

                                    This is a heavy duty, tall, carbon tripod. I wanted a quality tripod for my EOS 7D to use with landscapes and architecture. I am 6'2" and wanted a tall tripod that I did not require use of the center column - this is it. It weighs more than many carbon tripods owning to the heavier construction of the carbon legs, however it is rock steady. Even with the center column extended, the center column lock makes it very steady.

                                    The rubber feet have to be removed to install the steel spikes, but I pretty much know which I need before heading out. The toolkit consists of a small zippered bag for three hex tools and one wrench, but the bag does not secure the tools well when opened. It comes with a padded tripod bag that is large enough for the tripod and a small ballhead - not the geared head I purchased. Specifications for the bag were not posted on B&H or on Induro's site.

                                        Comments about Induro Carbon 8X CT313 Tripod:

                                        I use my Enduro tripod with my canon 7D while shooting pictures and videos. I love HDR photography and this tripod helps me a lot both indoors and outdoors with that.

                                        I like the robust construction of it, and also the grips on the legs, and the hook which helps me hang weights on my tripod when it gets windy.

                                        The only thing that I wish I had with my tripod is a smaller center column.
