Comments about Induro 8M AT-413 Aluminum Tripod:

These legs are incredibly stable, and are a perfect match to the Induro BHL3S head. This is not a compact/lightweight setup, so definitely weigh options if those factors are important to you. I would not want to compromise the strength and stability, so I am very happy.

    I was looking for a stable platform and I found it with this tripod. It's sturdy and relatively light for a non-carbon fiber tripod.

      this is a very sturdy and strong tripod. easy to set up and solid. you can put the points in to the legs if you want to secure the tripod to the ground.

      I like the height of the tripod so I don't have to bend over to shot from it.

      I am very happy with this tripod!!

        I live close to the Florida Everglades and often I'm there shooting with my Mark II and this tripod,it's the sturdiest set of legs this side of Serina Williams that I have seen.It's the best tripod I have ever had and tall enough that I can photogragh over the reeds and bushes of the swamp.Yes close your eyes and buy it you will not regret it.Mind you at 7 lbs. and a 600mm lens I get a workout ,good luck and happy shooting.

              I really liked the feel of the product. It is sturdy and it feels good in hands. I use it for urban photoshoot and wildlife. The thing works perfect. It is very sturdy without adding any weight to it. Holds my 600mm lens very well. I also have ball head from Induro, the combination is just perfect. I really liked the fact that it came with a good bag. Even though priced really low compared to its Carbon Fiber counterpart (my friend owns) I really loved this alloy one. The difference in weight is around 1 pound I guess but the stability is better than tat of the carbon fiber one.

                I have been using this tripod for over one year now. Still works very well. I have used this tripod from standing it in the ocean to saltwater marshes to leaving sand grit in the legs for weeks. Still works fine and holds my 400mm f2.8 just fine.

                Comments about Induro 8M AT-413 Aluminum Tripod:

                I was using old Bogen video tripod as a second owner for last 20 years. I replace hear with Manfrotto but this old tripod was not up to what should be. So I did some research and decided on Induro AT-413 Alloy. What is perfect for my needs because is up to 44 lbs load capability and is make like tank. So is perfect for my home studio, I'm not going to carry just like other folks do, so I not need fiber-carbon.

                After long searches and asking around for the best bang for your buck and most sturdy tripod. I came to the Indura line and the AT413 fit that spot perfectly. I use this with a 100mm spotting scope and it is solid. Couldn't have got a better tripod for the price.

                Comments about Induro 8M AT-413 Aluminum Tripod:

                Today I receive my order from B&H, Induro Alloy 8M AT413 tripod. I'm very pleased with this tripod. Is very nice but for me most important is stability and how much load will handle. There are many high quality tripods a specially carbon fiber but they are more expensive. For me this one is perfect because I will use them 90% in my home studio. I use to have very old Bogen what was originally desire for video I use them with Manfrotto 229 Super Pro Head. But was time to replace this old Bogen with new Induro. And my Manfrotto head working just fine on this new tripod.

                    Comments about Induro 8M AT-413 Aluminum Tripod:

                    I am using this tripod with a Sirui K-40X 54mm Ballhead. This is a superb combination: Stable support at eye level without extending the center column. Suitable for use in a hurricane. The ball head does not sag when tightening after positioning and has excellent levels. I use this tripod when photographing out of a car. It is too heavy and has too few sections to be a travel or hiking tripod. For that I use a Sirui T-2205X 5-section carbon fiber tripod with a Sirui K-20x Ball Head, which is by far the best travel combo I have found. Some photographic equipment has economics that make them a pleasure to use, this is one. Be warned, you have here 3/4 ton pickup, not a five liter Mustang. It takes an appreciation for brute strength to prefer this tripod to a Manfrotto 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod (MT055CXPRO3) with Markins Q-Ball Q3 Emille bullhead, which is what I sold after a week's use of the Induro with Sirui bullhead.

                        Definitely heavier than any other tripod I've owned before, but that is exactly why I bought it. Using it for eagle photography when we go to one location and stay there. It is perfect for this use and my camera/lens combo(Canon 7dmkii + Bigma) is very stable on it.

                          This tri-pod is great. I can't say that I have used any of the high end/high dollar ones, but I see no problems with this one with my EF400 F2.8 VI lens with and without extenders etc. on a gimbal head, about a 18lb load. As solid as I feel I need. Comes with spikes and a carry bag, which I can't use with the gimbal head on it, but it is a great product for the price you pay.

                                I bought this tripod to take the building interior pics with Canon 5D. Total weight with lens and all other attachments is about 6 lb. Tripod is very stable, and it doesn't require any additional weight.

                                    Have shot commercially and personally for over 30 years owning every item
                                    of Nikon, Leica, Hasselblad and Sinar gear with Profoto lighting, available.
                                    Very experienced in all aspects of commercial shooting and b/w fine art printing. Am setting up to shoot for myself on an 8x10 Deardorff after
                                    retiring and wanted something new, new to me. I never used a deardorff
                                    for commercial work so it was a logical choice, albeit, heavy, cumbersome, etc.
                                    and I wanted a tripod to suit my new adventure. Having own all sizes of Gitzo,
                                    bogen, a Tiltall once, and a majestic, I knew tripods pretty well and understood the weight a tripod would need to be to handle the deardorff but wanted to avoid
                                    the weight of Gitzo aluminum or Bogen aluminum and the cost of anything carbon, my mountain bike is carbon (love it) but a tripod needs some weight. I researched everything and found this AT413, it arrived, i am using a NOS Bogen 3way head #3057. The tripod is half the weight of a comparable gitzo or bogen, with only the first section extend the camera is
                                    at perfect height (me standing, I'm 6'2"_ and will go one section or 2 feet higher plus center column but I swapped out for the short carbon version because I leave it locked down for maximum stability. The legs go almost flat to the ground, the only way to get camera lower would be to set it on ground w/o support and it will reach 7' high as it. The tripod is extremely well made, indexed legs (they don't spin as you tighten) have a beautiful satin black finish. It has a kit for putting spikes in a pouch with clips to the tripod if you wish to carry everywhere, the case is perfect for protecting the finish
                                    but would not save it if you backed a car over it, but the head would only fit in if one removed the handles, a ball head would fit but would be hard to handle an 8x10 with any precision. I also considered wooden tripods but prefer the precision of this modern type. This is definitely a tripod I keep and use with my 8x10 deardorff or Sinar 4x5 and even Blad. Too much to carry for leica though. Induro is a new brand to me and I can whole heartedly recommend it as I have to my neighbor, also a deardorff shooter, to replace his too heavy Bogen and way too heavy Gitzo. See the reviews folks have done on youtube (not mine), I watched them and was sold, highly recommend. Bryan

                                        I was looking for an affordable tripod tall enough to use without the center section. This one fits the bill nicely.
