We needed a stable support (for a heavy piece of gear) that has minimal intrusion into the space in front of the gear. This stand provides for movement, although not easily directed when loaded, a necessity. Additional weights can be added to help support heavier gear. The arm with camera support provides one axis of tilt (up/down), and a second axis (side/side rotation) would have been welcome. A separate head is required for convenience. We ended up making a lot of added-on stuff to get the positioning versatility we required. This stand provided a good start with stable attachment points. If we have to do something similar again, we'll probably seek a different starting point.

Thursday, May 14, 2009 7:46:52 AM PDT Hello! I had to make a very expensive investment in a high-end Manfrotto tripod before I realized my need for the Salon 230 Camera Stand from Manfrotto. If you do studio photography, and more particularly product and/or table-top photography, this product is an absolute must. Gone will be that third leg of the tripod that is always in the wrong position - either in your gut or the modeling table. Mind you, I have added a lot of 'accessories' to my Salon 230 Camera Stand. To counter-balance the added weight, I have added nine (9) counter weights at 4.4 pounds each to the balance weights in the column. My only 'complaint about the Manfrotto Salon 230 Camera Stand is that the stand is sometimes a bit difficult to roll across the concrete floor of my studio. Trying to get all three wheels pointed in the same direction can be somewhat of a chore; otherwise, I consider the investment to have been a wise one.

Any idea how this compares to the Regalite Camera Stand?
Asked by: Kali
The Regalite is a lower weight capacity stand. It is good for cameras up to 4 x 5 film. The Manfrotto is a heavy duty stand meant to easily handle 8 x 10 cameras.

is it possible to position the camera parallel to the floor? I am guessing I will need an adapter of some sort to rotate the tripod head 90 degrees so that the camera's lens points perfectly downward. Can anyone tell me if this functionality is already possible with the Manfrotto 809, or, if there is an accessory that will make this a possibility ?
Asked by: Mark
Yes, you can rotate the camera on the existing mount to aim straight down.

How is the precision, fit, and finish? When adjustment points are snugged up is the arm solid or does it have some play?
Asked by: Brian
The Manfrotto Salon 230 Camera Stand - 7' is well-constructed and when the arm is locked, there is no play in it.
