    Manfrotto 709B reviews

    709 Digi Tabletop Tripod with Ballhead (Black) - Supports 4.5 lb (2kg) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool Tool I found out about this product from Scott Kelby in his series of books and thought it would be a good idea to take with me on trips where a tripod isn't possible. It packs very small and works great. It will assist a pro camera, but it will not support a pro camera. If you are looking for a tripod to hold a heavy camera or lens, do yourself a favor and buy a tripod designed for that. This tripod will allow you to get low on a table for food shots or a macro of a flower. With a heavy camera this tripod will hold the camera flat but will not hold at 90 degrees. I also use these tripods for my Canon Twin Macro Lights for Small Studio Photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Gadget I've had this for only a short time but it's been pretty handy. It's so small that it fits in my bag and I hardly know it's there. When I need a quick way to stabilize my M43, Canon S95, or iPhone using a Glif this little tripod is right there. Because it's lightweight, easy to use, and surprisingly stable, I carry it in my bag everywhere. It's perfect for the nimble photographer who travels with minimal kit, and who among us want's to carry more than absolutely necessary? There are lots of options for small tripods like this and if you're looking for a small, tabletop tripod check out the Manfroto 709. I'm very happy with mine and you might like it too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Used Accessory in My Kit! It's not the cheapest mini tripod out there but being a Manfrotto, the quality is very good. I use this tripod ALL of the time with everything from my Sony Action Cam, my GoPro to my Canon 60D with 18-200mm lens. The little rubber feet fell off one by one over time but it doesn't affect the performance at all unless I wanted to prevent scratches when I placed it on delicate surfaces like my car. I suppose I could glue on some cork replacements but for now I just place it on a towel for those times. I use mine primarily for time lapse and long exposures when I don't want to bother with my heavy, full sized tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing The first thing I noticed about this tripod is how solid it is. It is made out of metal, and is rock solid. It is a little bit longer than a pencil, and probably as thick as three fingers together when folded, so it fits easily into a camera case. The ball head is the first that I have ever used, and it holds up very well. I have other large Bogen tripods with large format heads, and this mini ball head is impressive in comparison. I have no doubt that it will hold medium format gear. I was using it with my Canon 5D. It's application (at least, the one for which I bought it) would be for a lightweight mini travel tripod where you are looking for something to hold the camera so that you can be in the shot along with your family. As long as you have a solid and relatively flat surface (floor, garbage can top, tabletop, etc.) you can use this. If you are in an area where you lack these types of surfaces, for instance, if you are hiking in heavy brush, you may want to consider the gorillapod which can clamp onto objects such as branches, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I take this little tripod on all of my trips. It's so small it can fit in my pants pocket. Perfect for places like Grand Central Station where big tripods are not always allowed due to security and people density issues. I place it on the banister for motion blur exposures. Can also be used against walls. Lightweight. GREAT to have for those unexpected situations. Folds small, great stability, very lightweight, and easy to manage. Can't be beat, in my opinion. It was recommended to me by B&H staff when I visited the NYC store a few years ago.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and well-made A great little tripod. Holds the 5dii and 24-105 easily, rock solid, ballhead cranks down and holds it in place pretty well. Fits in my tiny bag still, and works much better than the ultrapod it replaced (that ballhead couldn't hold the camera without slipping). Only con is that it isn't high enough to accommodate the camera oriented to portrait. You can do it, but you'll have to close the legs a bit and have it hover there. Not terrifically stable in that orientation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from small but sturdy Really small, but not too light. Easily sturdy enough for my D80 + 18-200, and easy to adjust, the small ballhead works fine. It's small enough that I can continue shooting with it attached to the camera, but folded, if I need to switch between tripod and free-hand shooting. It never slips out of position when shooting horizontal. However, with the camera twisted for portrait format, it gets quite unstable and may need holding or wedging down. Also, the camera tends to unscrew itself from the tripod in the natural (right side up) portrait position because of gravity twisting the lens down. Having said this, I haven't seen one small tripod tat works well in portrait. For landscape, this is the best I've tried. Tip: to get it on quickly, just fold it and spin the whole tripod, not just the screw/ballhead. Fold it to the side and use it as a handle if you want it really tight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great travel tripod Wonderful tripod, didn't skip a beat loaded with my D800 and Zeiss 135/2.0 lens for exposures over 5 seconds. But the little cork feet fall off before your first use, so get over it and don't use it on furniture that it might scratch, because those metal legs WILL scratch wood and the like. Also, vertical shots are nearly impossible, but I managed a few. Just makes it very side heavy. But other than those few nits, it's very light and sturdy, and holds more than I could possibly imagine.
