          Comments about Manfrotto MK394-PD Photo Kit:

          Strong and stable, great value for the money. I was disappointed to find out after receiving item that there is not a quick release for the camera. You must tighten or release a screw from the camera each time you mount or remove from tripod. I find this cumbersome and would look for a tripod with quick relase next time. It is for this reason that I would not recommend to a friend.

            I have just recently become interested in photography. As a beginner, this tripod is great. It's nice and lightweight and has a nice range of height. It's easy to take with you and it's great that it came with a case. I definitely suggest this product for anyone.

              I have to be honest, I got more tripod than I thought would for the price. Sturdy yet light weight. Works great. Great service from B&H along with great product from Manfrotto.

                  I took this out for the first time to shoot pictures of NYC in the dark a couple of weeks ago. I had it out on a very windy promenade and even with its light weight, it was able to hold the camera still enough to get amazing photos. Now I can't wait to bring it on vacation with me. This is a great option if you're beginning and want something sturdy but lightweight enough for travel.

                    As a beginner, I bought 2 different tripod, but returned them. For the price I am100% satisfied. This tripod is lightweight and yet I feel safe knowing my camera is on it. The construction is easy to use and I feel it will do the job for years to come. A must have with a very reasonable price tag.
