Manfrotto 800 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a compact design that is still capable of supporting camera formats up to 4 x 5", the Mini Static Camera Stand from Manfrotto is ideal for passport, ID, and portrait photography where a shorter range of vertical movement is needed. Revolving around a black anodized aluminum alloy column, this stand has pneumatic dampening for smooth movements from 36.2" to 63.8" high, and a 3/8" male threaded mount is built into the top of the column. The base is constructed from durable cast iron and integrates two pivoting, lockable wheels into its design for moving the stand or fixing in place.

    Manfrotto 800 reviews

    Mini Static Camera Stand is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great stand, but... When I opened the boxes I was pleasantly surprised. The stand is much more beefy than it appears in the product photo. Definitely sturdy enough for my medium format system, and a huge upgrade from the flimsy copy stand I was using. One Problem however - During assembly, the welds holding the threaded piece inside the riser tube broke. Easy fix using a little JB Weld, but I would have definitely expected better quality from Manfrotto.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from could be a great product but has very serious flaw It has the potential of being a great stand but has a very serious flaw. The top screw is very short and when I attached a Manfrotto 131dd Tripod Accessory Arm For Four Heads with a laptop and camera the base of the Arm broke off and my camera and laptop fell to the floor breaking the laptop's screen. The base's screw cannot be modified and since its so short it broke off the first thread of the Arm. It is unable to sustain any weight over 10lbs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is this really manfrotto? The directions look like a photo copy from 1982 and are labeled IFF Advanced Rigging. The thing is a tank, but the top when you attach head is loosen and spins freely---looks like it can be tightened with a tiny allan wrench but they don't give you one...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition to my studio I'd been considering the purchase of the Manfrotto Mini Static Camera Stand for awhile but the lack of favorable reviews held me back. When B&H lowered the price and threw in an Oben ball head, I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. It's a valuable addition to my studio where I mainly shoot small products. The stand arrives in two cartons and assembly is easywhich is good because the instructions are rather poorly translated and loaded with typographical errors. The column simply attaches to the base with one hex head bolt and a supplied Allen wrench. I'd also recommend having a 5/64 allen wrench on hand in case the two set screws near the top of the riser column need to be tightened. If these set screws are loose, the tripod head will spin freely. As noted in the other reviews, the stand has a couple of flawsthe most notable of which is the short 3/8 mounting bolt on the top of the riser column used for securing the tripod head. My first thought was to remove the two set screws that hold the top on the column and replace the mounting bolt with a longer version. Unfortunately the bolt seems to be bonded to the top piece and I could not remove it. However, while the top was off the column, I was able to use a 5/16 allen wrench on the head of the mounting bolt to tighten it securely to my Manfrotto 3275 geared head. Even though I was only able to tighten it a couple of turns, it has remained tight for two months of daily use. Another issue was that the riser column, which is supposed to be pneumatically dampened, would drop suddenly when the column locking handle was loosened. To fix this problem, there's a small recessed screw located just above the column locking handle that can be tightened to add friction and slow down the column movement. The movement is not as smooth as pneumatic dampening but it does provide some measure of control. Having said all that, the stand is a definite improvement over using a tripod in my studio.
