Worth every penny

Comments about Manfrotto MT294C3 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

I started off with a budget tripod. While it did get the job done for a little while, it also made me that much more appreciative of the quality, weight, & functionality of this tripod. Highly recommend it!

    Comments about Manfrotto MT294C3 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

    I am very impressed with the Manfrotto Carbon Fiber Tripod legs. They are light weight, yet solid and strong. I love the leg locks and the ease of use. I have used this in moderate winds and have not notice any movement so far. The only issue is that they do not fold down very small, but I knew that when I purchased them, and you would not expect that with three-part legs.

    Poorly assembled; unresponsive service

          Comments about Manfrotto MT294C3 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

          I bought this tripod 3 months ago. When I received it, I tested the leg locks, but did not test the center column extension. I didn't have a chance to use it until recently. When I tried to extend the center column, I found that the column could not be locked in place. The screw attached to the wing nut is not long enough to make contact with the column. Also, the center column does not fit tightly in the base, so even when not extended it wobbles around on the base because it cannot be locked down.

          I contacted Manfrotto's service department about this problem through their web site a week and a half ago. They acknowledged receipt of my request, but have not contacted me yet. I also placed a call to their service and parts department, but they have not returned my call either. Until I can get this problem resolved, the tripod is useless.

          I have purchased Manfrotto products in the past with no problems. However, based on this experience and their unresponsiveness, I will not buy any Manfrotto products again.
