      I used this tripod for two port sessions and some nature photog with heavy lens so far and was really impressed with the sturdiness of this tripod and the ease of setup and take down. Love it!

      A wonderful beast of a tripod

      Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod:

      I have, in the past, frequently bemoaned the lack of height on my tripod. This, coupled with a series of jobs that found me needing more height (and preferring stability for my camera's sake), led me to replace the barely adequate tripod I had been using. I only wish I hadn't wasted so much time complaining about height, because this was just what I needed. Make no mistake, it is a weighty tripod, but I prefer something that gets so tall to have that mass to better secure my camera on its precarious perch. The legs are solid; I think they've hurt more things on impact than the other way around. Initially, I thought I wanted more choice in the angle I set the legs, but realized that may not be the best idea for a tripod this size and height. Everything works well, and feels stable without being difficult to manipulate.
      It isn't well suited for travel, but it's great for anything in the studio. Night and landscape shots work well too, but (obviously) not if you're hiking in the middle of nowhere. I'd even suggest that it's sturdy enough for video.
      The carrying case and accoutrements (wrench and spiked feet) seem fairly durable as well.

        I've used this tripod a number of times now, set up is quick, the center column adjusts easily, and is very sturdy even when putting my 500mm lens on it. Weight hasn't been a problem for me, the included tripod case is very nice for carrying the tripod. If the folded length was a little shorter this tripod would be perfect.

          Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod:

          Super sized legs! Love how big these legs are yet they collapse down to a very manageable size + you get a carrying case + interchangeable spiked & rubber feet + a tool kit!I use these legs with a Manfrotto 055 Magnesium Ball Head and they work beautifully together.Yes, they are heavy, but for the load capacity + the dust/moisture resistance + the independent leg spread, etc, it's totally worth it.I like the added weight because it seems to make it more stable + there's a weight hook on the center column so you can add even more stability if needed.If you are tall or if you use heavy, professional gear and need a pair of solid yet affordable legs, you should definitely consider these.

                  Comments about Induro Alloy 8M AT413 Tripod:

                  Yeah, it's over 7lbs and heavy but I bought it for studio use and not for lugging it great outdoors for landscape shoots. Weight is the only drawback but everything else is perfect. I prefer the twistlock over lever lock as I always seem to bust a lever soon or later. It comes with adjustment tools, metal spikes and stout carry bag that can accomodate a large ball head. Standard center column is not too long and does not compromise overall stability. It is made in China but it is very well-made with excellent fit and finish. They probably copied some other well known design. You'd be hard pressed to find another brand of tripod in this price range with similar capabilities and features. Highly recommended!

                    This is a tank sold under guises of a tripod. I had a chance to use it in various conditions in the last weeks including shooting a concert with tripod extended to the max so I had to stand on a stool to be able to operate the camera and I'm over 6 feet tall. fully extended tripod was just as solid and unshakable as ever. I tried to shake the camera and a few drunken participants tried unwittingly as well but to no avail.

                        My 3rd Induro. I use the 213 with m4/3 system & 314 monopod with Canon 5D2. I got the AT413 to use on location as an alternative to my trusty Gitzo Studex ... best tripod ever but weighs a ton . The usual good Induro packaging & included kit . Time will tell how the black finish endures. Light & easy to manage . I coupled it with a BBH300 head & the combo is very solid even with 300F2.8. V good value .

                        If you like to just camp in one spot for a period of time to take video or photographs, then this is the best product for you. It can be a burden to lug around, but offers complete stability and a heavy weight capacity to boot. Wildlife and sports photography is ideal, but it can probably do the trick for landscape as well.

                        I own this tripod for over a year and love it. So I bought one for my sister for Christmas since she made so many hints she wanted one like I had.
                        It gives you the height you need to get over others in the crowd. (I use a 12"folding stool when I use it at full height, or I'm able to stand on anything in the area). It is sturdy and not that heavy.
                        I did get some Lens Coat leg pads as to I have a Canon 500 I lug around and I need some padding for my shoulders.
                        I used this in Alaska last Aug and got it in the saltwater. When I got home you can take the legs apart and give them a good cleaning. I used "liquid wrench dry lubricant" for this.
                        Remember, don't keep on buying tripods and then say I wish I had a better tripod.. this is the one you need.

                          After speaking to a BH sales rep concerning a misguided recommendation posted on their website, I was pleased to find this solidly built affordable tripod for my super tele lens. I am not concerned with lugging gear around, I'd rather have super stability to get great shots. This is much heavier than CF tripods but with my 500mm plus 1.4 extender, there is no hint of shake. Great advice from BH and highly recommended.

                          I am very pleased with this item. My spotting scope mounts on top of it and there is absolutely no vibration, perceived or otherwise, when viewed at high manifications. This is an aluminum tripod, not as light as carbon fiber, but I have no problems carrying it around. The equivalent Induro carbon tripod is three times the price.

                              If you are looking for a lightweight tripod to use your wide angle lenses on this is probably not the tripod for you. My main lens is the sigma 50-500mm f5-6.3 OS on a t2i with battery grip until I can afford a 1d mkiv and a canon supertelephoto prime and I usually use teleconverters depending on the light (yes, its soft but I'm not going to crop all of my photos). I photograph wildlife, mainly birds. This tripod is a tank. Its big, heavy and extremely stable. I'm 6'5 and I needed a tripod that can get the camera above my eye level for easy shooting of birds in trees. It easily accomplishes this although the center column does need to be extended a bit although only slightly. The center column is well constructed so extending the column does not reduce stability that much. 95% of people will not need to use the center column because the legs alone are very long. You can also lock the legs at different angles and us it for macro photography for flowers growing on the ground. Here is a revolutionary physics lesson: if you want a tripod to be stable for long lens photography especially in low light or at smaller apertures it must be heavy, especially towards the bottom of the tripod or it will shake no matter how rigid the metal is. This is why people use wood tripods, particularly for video. It also has a hook for hanging weights off the center column which would be useful if you are shooting in a hurricane or on top of mt. washington. While this is not as heavy as wood tripod it is definitely weigty and can get difficult for long hikes but it sure is nice to have around if you can take the weight. With my camera, lens and a 1.5 lbs. ball head this tripod is too much to carry on my shoulder for more than an hour or two especially since the balance point is right on the base of the tripod instead of the nice foam grips; (grrr...) of course that changes if you have a heavier or lighter setup. Like I said I'm large and I have a good tolerance for hardship, many people will not be comfortable carrying this setup for very long distances at all (smaller, shorter people including my 5'3 wife). It's mostly strapped to my backpack and I carry the camera on a monopod (get a good backpack or it will fall apart from the weight and it must be strapped in the middle or you will get the mother of all backaches). The legs secure quickly without too much force with twist locks. Its not as quick as clamps but its more rigid at its joints so I'm happy and my wife can easily tighten the legs and I could probably hang off the tripod. I use this with the Vanguard sbh-300 which is inexpensive and also built like a tank (highly recommended for people that don't want to pay for an arca-swiss). This tripod is unbelievably stable and an unbelievable buy for long lens photographers that can take the weight in exchange for stable tripod. Don't waste your money on a gitzo.

                                I am always hesitant to buy Chinese products. I buy quality and not cheap products. The reason I bought this product was that I wanted a strong tripod and after finding that carbon fiber tripods weight in average 10% less than the aluminum ones (of course we have to match their categories and sizes). After intense research I found that the 8M AT413 is the best in class. Nowadays manufactures are copying one another, so the good ones look a like. Another reason I bought this product its that I wanted to modify it. Almost all the manufactures have the center column on their tripods and that to me does not make any sense, especially in a tripod that can reach 67" like this one without the center column extended. Thus, I removed the center column lathed the treads out on the spider and put two bolts of 1/4" with a Really Right Stuff plate on it. Now I can use the two pro heads on all my tripods. The quality for the price on this product is really amazing. You won't regret. The large knobs on the legs are very easy to use, just a light turn and the legs are locked tight, the legs come out very smoothly. I did not see anything I did not like about this tripod, except for the mod above. The looks the usability, everything is fine and very well done. If you don't like the size get a smaller one of the same brand. Worth every penny.
