Manfrotto 2961 reviews

Complete AutoPole Expan Kit - Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice System Except for Flimsy Chain This was a difficult system to set up, because it came with no instructions and a lot of parts. But once set up, it works fine. Until the cheap plastic chain breaks, which it will. The chain that comes with it is very weak and breaks often. Keep a ladder nearby, because you'll be needing it! They do have an aftermarket chain that is supposedly stronger. For the price of this system, it should have been included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space saving backdrop stand We use this portable backdrop stand in 3 different areas of the studio. I appreciate how fast it is to take down and pop up where ever it's needed. Holds the weight of 3 full rolls of paper no problem. Easy to use and the chains have yet to tangle on us. If I had one complaint it's that the system arrived missing one rubber foot. B&H customer service responded immediately and is sending out a replacement part, so the problem has been solved. But in the meantime I had to borrow one from someone I know until the part arrives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manfrotto AutoPole I saw a video review and knew it would solve a handful of setup problems I have while using my home as my studio. Tucks the rolls up and out of the way quickly, looks great and will certainly extend the life of the paper. Manfrotto quality. I'd purchase again....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, great system! This system is great for our small studio setup, and love the adaptability of being able have multiple rolls of seamless easy to access. Was able to set this up one my own, although would be easier with two people for sure. Only small complaint is that the with all 3 full rolls of seamless on the cast hooks, the super clamps sag a little bit on the auto poles. Seems like it'll stay up there, but could maybe be a little more sturdy?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I had been using a simple background stand system for my seamless paper and I was having issues with the paper rolling back up loose and/or unevenly so it stuck out too much on one side. Not to mention it was a PITA to set it up and take it down, especially by myself. I got this system and although it is a bit expensive its price is nothing compared to how easily and effectIvey it works. Setup is very easy even by myself with a 2+ meter seamless roll (of course a second person does help). Within less than a minute I could unroll and reroll my seamless that was all messed up with zero problems! The looseness and unevenness is gone! On top of that I'll be able to switch between different rolls in no time during a shoot. As a counterweight I'm just using a few A clamps and it works no problem. Taking the system down is even easier so for a non permanent studio it's ideal. I highly recommend this system, it made seamless a whole lot less stressful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective Its a good and effective equipment... practical and versatile... I would definitely make it stronger and more stable gears for the chains... But good stuff...
