        I want a not expensive tripod, easy to travel, not heavy. It is not carbon fiber but it is lightweight.
        This is the right tripod, also i can use my manfrotto heads.
        Also cames with a bag !! Manfrotto is expensive and you can buy a bag ...

          Simple, strong, pleasure to use. Reasonable price. Before this, I bought the Induro AT2114 model and returned it when I realized it was too tall for me. I needed to stand on my toes whenever I pointed the camera downward. So I returned it and bought this one -AT114- with a BHS1 ball head. Love it. B&H was great about shipping quickly and about processing the return.

          Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT114 Tripod:

          I just went through a huge upgrade of all my gear. My previous tripod was damaged by sand and dust, to the point where the leg clamps would not support the tripod standing along. This was the biggest reason I went with this tripod. It is a solid tripod, and it is rare to find twist locks with such a modest price tag. I am very pleased with it so far.

          Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT114 Tripod:

          I use a 37 year old Leica ballhead mounted on this tripod ( Leitz Wetzler Germany is engraved on a 5" long head with an all metal wing nut). The 19" long folded length tripod with the ballhead fits in the included carrying bag ( good quality!). This is a well made leg set. Its relatively sturdy for its size. I use the small bottom leg sections for leveling. I realize tripod use and need has diminished with DSLR but I use it for macro work, self portraits, and I will take along when I travel.

          Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT114 Tripod:

          This little tripod is one of the better units for the price. It is not as stable as the higher end units in this same brand name or as my good heavy Manfrotto, however this unit does pack down to the size of a carryon bag for travel.

          The tripod includes a few tools which are useful and a very nice bag however if you have a larger tripod head like me who has a Manfrotto 501HDV mounted, you won't be able to fit the tripod in the carry bag as it's not wide enough. For travel, I take that off anyways because it's too large to fit in a carryon bag anyways.
          The other issue I have is that when the center post is raised, and you collapse the legs in, they can fold in too far as there is no stop point in the spider.

          The tripod could be stabled with a weight bag however the small aluminum polls are just not stiff enough to keep this thing 100% stable.

          The tripod on the other hand does work, and is great for armature use at a great price, however I would look into better units if stability is your main concern.

            This is a great tripod for beginners/amateur photographers. If your looking for a light, solid built and your on a budget this tripod is for you. You can pretty much take this anywhere its so light, will even fit in a carry on suite case if your traveling. This also comes with a carrying bag. I mainly use this for landscape and HDR. If you have or are planning to buy high end lens like the Canon L lens I suggest you get the Alloy 8M AT214 or the Carbon Fiber series.

            Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT114 Tripod:

            This is the first tripod that I have owned. I considered the Manfrotto 190xdb an an alternative, having given it as a gift. The list price of the AT114 is greater by about the cost of a tripod bag, which comes with the AT114 but not with the 190dbx. The Induro product has some additional features, including padding at the top of the tripod legs, a level, and a center-column weight hook.

            The latches securing the legs at different angles slide outward--they are not spring-loaded like the press latches on the 190dbx. I prefer the Induro latches: the Manfrotto latches seemed harder to manipulate. The Induro latches are greased on the sliding surfaces, which may create problems with accumulated grit if the tripod is used on a beach on a windy day.

            The leg section locking mechanism for the AT114 (twist locks rather than wing nuts) are easy to use. As mentioned by another reviewer, the fourth leg sections (the ones at the end) do seem to impart a bit of flexibility. This should be less of a problem with the three-section tripod. With all legs fully extended, the center column raised, and a DSLR attached to the 498RC2 ball head (purchased separately), I found the camera viewfinder to by right at my eye level (I am a little over 6' tall).

            The bag quality was a pleasant surprise. The material seems to be heavy duty, and there is padding. It is long enough to comfortably accommodate the AT114 with the Manfrotto 493RC2 ball head attached. The carrying handle and strap are slightly offset to one end so that when the ball head is attached to the tripod and inserted to rest at the non-zip end of the bag, the bag hangs horizontally off the hand or shoulder. Someone was thinking when the bag was designed. The inside pocket of the bag as shipped includes a zip-lock plastic bag containing two allen wrenches and an inexpensive box-end wrench for the lock nut on the screw mount.

            My only gripe is that the spring loaded hook for the tripod weight does not pull out smoothly--I have to rotate it in its housing to make it fully extend.

            I am convinced that I made the correct choice in purchasing this tripod. It is compact (will fit into my day pack with head attached or an airline carry-on bag with the head removed). It seems to be rugged.

              Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT114 Tripod:

              I got this tripod along with the Vanguard GH-100 pistol grip ball head for my Canon 50d and these two are a perfect combination. If you are looking for a heavy duty tripod - head combination look no further. I have got quite heavy lenses like 24-70 f2.8 and 70-200 f4 and along with the 50d they weigh up to 3Kgs. Even for this load the tripod remains very steady in any orientation, I haven't seen any sign of sagging or creep yet, I think its got a lot to do with the head as well (which is a tech marvel). This tripod is very light weight yet very steady with substantially solid legs. Fully extended the tripod height reaches more than 6 ft.

              I also like the lock mechanism, it works great as of now but I am unsure if this will get loose over the period of time.

              If I have any gripe it would be about the lower most column of the legs which are not too strong which is expected. Don't get me wrong they are strong enough to hold my 3Kg gear steady but just miss out on the extra confidence I need. Although I may not need to extend it fully often but would still like to be able to use the full height.

                An excellent tripod. Definitely recommend it. You'll be very happy.

                One thing to be careful about is that this model doesn't come with a second pair of feet, as a bonus, like the product description says it will. The extra feet are only included with certain models.

If you need a tripod that you are going on vacation or camping this is the tripod that I say get it will not let you down.

                    Just received this little beauty. A great copy of a Gitzo, and better than Manfrotto of the same weight. Very well crafted, with excellent materials and finish. Very strong for its size. Multiple leg position locks work great (copied from Gitzo). Leg lock system quick and sure. With a Manfrotto Compact ball head, this will be a great travel pod. Liked it so much that I ordered another right away, an AT313 for more serious work. Buy one... You will like it.
