The INDURO Alloy 8M AT214 Tripod is a durable wide-stance cross-braced tripod with aluminum-alloy legs that offers solid camera support with plenty of flexibility--improved leg angle locks, a reversible locking center column, bubble level, spring-loaded weight hook, and oversized center column lock all contribute to stability, strength, and a higher load capacity. The spider (the structure that keeps the tops of the legs together) is magnesium alloy. Includes a tool kit and a deluxe carrying bag and strap.

Wide-stance cross-braced magnesium-alloy spider provides ultimate core system stability
Extra-long grooved center column-extended camera positioning without unwanted column rotation

Interchangeable rubber feet and stainless-steel spikes in alloy mount provide the right contact on any surface or terrain
Slip-resistant top plate with reversible tripod head mounting screw assures compatibility with virtually any tripod head
Spring-loaded weight hook allows additional weight for mounting stability during windy conditions
Oversized center column lock adds vibration-reducing structural support

    I use my Induro AT214 set of legs for general photography. This is my first set of tripod legs and I paired them with a Induro BHD2. These are not the largest set of legs, but for the price point, they can't be beat.

    The tripod is solid with the first extension out,a little less with the second out and needs a counterweight for when you require all three extended.

    I am finding I may need the shorter column (an additional $30 plus shipping) to get low without reversing the column.

    I do like the leg coverings and the ability to wear gloves when adjusting the legs.

    Not too heavy, supports enough weight to throw my full BMCC rig on it. Great price, pretty perfect for my needs. Works nice with a Manfrotto flat base head. Only downside is leveling the tripod with a flat base head. You have to adjust each leg till level as oppose to quick leveling a ball head. If you need something basic and don't have a big budget, I recommend these tripod legs.

      Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT214 Tripod:

      My past experiences with tripods haven't been great, but these legs are just peachy. The twist locks are responsive without much twist so adjustments are made quickly. The round level gives me a good starting point which is fine tuned with my ballhead.The levers allow the tripod to get low with a nice and wide stance. I can easily attach a weight to make the rig sturdier. I can flip the center column to shoot straight down.I've brought it on a few shoots already and it's performed very well. The legs have stayed out of the way and allowed me to do my job without incident which is exactly what good gear should do.Weight isn't a huge deal for me and shaving a pound isn't worth hundreds of dollars to me, but I'm not hiking around with this thing. I have walked several blocks with my Pelican case full of cameras, lenses and flashes as well as a bag of triggers and my tripod on my back and it hasn't proven to be too heavy.

      I currently own a Manfrotto 475B legs and a 502HD Pro head. While I love this combo, I needed something that's lighter and easier to travel with. This Induro is really well built and although it's smaller, you can tell it can support my C100 rig load.

        I wanted a moderately priced tripod that compacted for travel to support an Oben BC-126 ball head and a D7100 with 70-300 mm lens. The AT-214 is more than adequate for my amateur needs. It is very long - at 6'2" I do not need to extend it completely. The twist locks are easy to use with absolutely no slippage. The accompanying case is also of good quality and design and amply contains the tripod, head, and tool kit. The rubber cushion and spike feet are separate and require effort to interchange.

        Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT214 Tripod:

        I used this for a moutainous, rocky shoot. It was decent to carry around with the included bag. It would be way too heavy and long to carry around all day long but good for a couple hours or short distances. It was extremely sturdy. I fixed the legs at different lengths on the uneven terrain and it still held up very well. It was kind of confusing to figure out which of the three knobs on each leg was extended so set up ndn take down took awhile. I'm sure this is just a learning curve though.

          Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT214 Tripod:

          I bought this tripod to replace an older/shorter Gitzo G226. The Gitzo has served me well but it is a little heavy and it only rises to 45" with the center column retracted.

          Like many others, I researched tripods to death. I saw this and decided to pull the trigger. It's only a few ounces heavier than the carbon fiber equivalent so I didn't see spending the extra cash on the CF except for perhaps vibration dampening.

          I'm glad I bought this one. Everything about this tripod screen quality. My heaviest rig is a 1D with a 70-200 2.8 and this supports that setup without even batting an eye. I opted for the BHL1 ball head and it is more than adequate for my needs. With everything tightened, nothing moves (which I love!).

          This tripod is light enough for me to hike with and sturdy enough to hold my heaviest rig.

            My main concern was how sturdy it would be, but it exceeded expectations. I've used it during extremely windy conditions, on sand and all configurations with no problems. It's easy to adjust, relatively light weight and when folded takes up very little room.

            Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT214 Tripod:

            This thing is super solid and easy to use. It does a great job low to the ground, or fully extended and with the ability to hang your bag from the center post it can provide even more stability when under high winds. I recently took this on a trip through Death Valley and it performed very well in all conditions including under high winds at the peak of a mountain. It sets up quickly and is easy to adjust to another position.

            It exceeded my expectations with performance and ease of use. My only negative is that it is a bit heavy. Most of our spots were 1.5-2 miles from the road so I did a lot of hiking around with this. A carbon fiber one would have been a bit better, but at 3x the cost.

              Tripod is lightweight and very solid. I'm 6'1 and the tripod extende w/o the column extend is height enough to have the viewfinder at the same levet to my eyes. Thou some people recommend not to use the centre column as a rule of thumb, I took some shots with it 75% extended. No difference to the situation with column retracted whatsoever !!! Very solid tripod !!! Use it with my D600 and battery grip and 70-200mm and Redged RP-3 ball head and noticed movement at all. I would buy it again !

Only downside is leveling the tripod with a flat base head. You have to adjust each leg till level as oppose to quick leveling a ball head. If you need something basic and don't have a big budget, I recommend these tripod legs.

                      Recently I sold my Gitzo 3541L in order to get a Gitzo 1544T for traveling and just to lighten my load. I shoot landscapes, portraiture, and extreme action sports, while the 1544T is great for most gear it can't handle the weight of a 1DX and 70-200mm 2.8 with a 2 x extender when shooting a simple 30 second exposure. I've had many different tripods in my day and am tired of spending 700 dollars or more for them. I found Induro at B&H and wondered why I have never given the company a try. Eventually I decided why not, it's only 1 pound heavier than the expensive brands and comes with a great warranty, tripod bag, spikes, and tools. ALL for the amazing low price of $[$]!!! It works as well as any other tripod I've owned, If I want to go lighter I can always get a Carbon Fiber model at a fraction of the cost of the more recognized models, give this company time and it will be more recognized throughout the industry.

                        This is aa great light weight Tirpod, it is easy to set up or take down. one of the better ones that I have used over the years of shooting stills and video production. For being as light weigth it offers great support for the equipment.I have used it shooting weddings, portiats, and outdoors for wildlife. I am just about six foot tall and is the prefect height for me when legs are fully extended. Great Tripod.

                            I purchased this model Induro to use as lighter weight option for backpacking my gear on longer distance wildlife outings. I was at first unsure wether this model with its' 28mm upper legs would be stable enough for longer lens use. However my concerns were unfounded as i currently use this tripod primarily with the new my Nikon D7100 and 300mm F4 AFS Nikkor and 1.4 teleconverter.
                            When shooting in 1.3 crop mode that is the equivalent of 840mm! With care I get tack sharp results even as low as 250th of a second.

                            This model with its anti rotation legs is a breeze to use and extends and collapses easily and quickly. I am using an Induro BHD2 ballhead with this tripod, and find this to be the perfect set up for my "more portable" wildlife kit

                            I use this item with my Nikon d7000 and sigma 50-500m and it supports both well. It'd be nice to have a band to carry the tripod without the given bag.

                              I use my Induro AT214 set of legs for general photography. This is my first set of tripod legs and I paired them with a Induro BHD2. These are not the largest set of legs, but for the price point, they can't be beat.

                              The tripod is solid with the first extension out,a little less with the second out and needs a counterweight for when you require all three extended.

                              I am finding I may need the shorter column (an additional $30 plus shipping) to get low without reversing the column.

                              I do like the leg coverings and the ability to wear gloves when adjusting the legs.

                                This tripod is very stable and lightweight. Good strong construction too. Excellent for the price compared to the higher-end tripods that are 3x the price.
