      Comments about Manfrotto 294 Carbon Fiber Tripod with 804RC2 3-Way Head:

      this is a very solid tripod with three way head. it is easy to use and very strudy. One thing i do not like is that when you mount haevy equipment (5D and 24-70) it is not completely smooth in precise movements. I guess i need to get use to it.

        Comments about Manfrotto 294 Carbon Fiber Tripod with 804RC2 3-Way Head:

        I never have a tripod when I need one. They are heavy, bulky, a real pain. So I finally broke down and got a good carbon fiber tripod. I love it. The head is wonderful too. It's very, very sturdy and looks to be as durable as a metal tripod.

            This tripod seems like a light weight, quality tripod.

            I still want to look into purchasing a foot long rubber tube for the three legs.
