A bit expensive because it's a Manproto but it's really good I personally bought it on sale so it was worth it to me

Great for photography

This little tripod is so compact that I took it overseas. having the level grip right at your fingertips is just well done. for video this tripod did not work for me, that is if you are shooting slow motion, as in real time the tripod shakes if you are following a subject with your camera.

Very Nice

This is an awesome tripod. It comes with carrying bag and folds to a perfect travel size. The only thing i don't like, is that it isn't as tall as I would have liked.

Top Quality Tripod for Newbie.

Who is writing? I am nearly 70 years old, a complete newbie to video. This might help you understand my review. The Manfrotto Befree aluminum tripod is quality product, made from solid materials. All moving parts are secure and move smoothly. The included instructions are almost model of clarity, with very clear illustrations. Every function and operation is covered. There is a small spirit level bubble window in the head. I find it useful. It would probably be obscured by a camera larger than my Canon M50. The included camera baseplate can be attached with either of the included photography-standard-thread screws. The baseplate flanges taper at one end, so it can only be slid into its tripod head seat in one direction. This engaged a restraining pin that prevents the baseplate from accidentally sliding out of its seat. With the base plate attached, because Canon M50 is so small, its battery compartment cannot be opened. However, the flap allowing external power to the camera is accessible. accessed. This is would not be a problem on a larger camera. The tripod provides solid footing, easily supporting the weight on the Canon M50, and the Sigma lens set I use with it. I Overall, it is an excellent entry-level tripod for people using entry-level cameras. I consider it great value for the price, and know I will be happy with it for a long time.

I got this is as video travel tripod. No, the head on it is not as good as other more expensive heads Manfrotto offers, but it is still a good head and I can get great shots with it. I bought this for its form factor. It's pretty light weight. I know there a tripods that weight less, but they are either way more expensive or not as robust.

It’s OK I guess.

It’s OK I guess. The tripod itself is pretty decent. Nothing special. The fluid head is really pretty mediocre. I guess for something you’re going to stick in your backpack it will have to do. I just wish that there was a little bit more resistance in the fluid head and some adjustment would sure be nice. It’s either locked or open. If you try to snug down it just rubs and doesn’t work well. It’s better than a ball head but not nearly as nice as a real fluid head.

Great deal!

I was looking for a small lightweight tripod to take with me in travels and that is just it! The tripod is reliable, excellent construction and you know, Manfrotto's quality. I'm totally satisfied! It was a GREAT deal!

Perfect!

Will this tripod head fit the Ronin S quick release plate?
Asked by: Will
Yes however we do not recommend using the Ronin S plate on tripods. This is because the safety catch is reversed on the Ronin S Quick Release plate. On the Ronin S you load your camera from front to back on a tripod you load your camera from back to front. it means that when you mount your camera on a tripod it will face the back of the tripod.
