    Manfrotto 269HDB-3U reviews

    Super High Camera Stand - 24' (7.3m) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super high advantage! This product is exactly what I needed for my urban grunge work in alleys, warehouses, over fences etc. It provides a birds-eye view in scenes you would never expect find them in. Once you get above the 8' or 9' level it's vital that you use the 3 stabilization ropes. Even a slight wind can get the camera moving. This is not important if you're shooting fast shutter speeds, but if you're shooting multiple exposures for HDR work, or in low light situations and like myself you're anywhere between 15' or higher, it's imperative. You'll need a remote trigger or long cable release to fire the shutter, however. All in all, it's a fabulous product for money. Commercial versions can cost 2-3 times the cash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product----can't wait to test Just arrived today. It's Bogen Manfrotto, so you know it's good. Yes it is---very well designed-- looks very professional. Will get my camera up 24 feet, which is tall as my 2-story house. Sure, I can buy something to get me up 50 ft. or more, but who wants to shell out 20 times as much? My guess is I will want to use a lower height anyway for architectural work---who really wants to see the roof of a building anyway? This will be wonderful indoors! There is minor cushioning built into each section of the column---nice. Each leg has a hole for a ground stake---nice. My package came with the 3 guy wire set--very nice. I imagine I will use guy ropes all the time, even indoors (use sand bags or similar weights)as any aerial mast will vibrate from air and ground movements, even in no-wind situation. ...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing views from up here! I've been a professional architectural and garden photographer for 30 years and this is the most fun I've had in a long time with a new piece of equipment. It can get the high views without all the noise and disadvantages of drones. I don't have to haul ladders around on the top of my van anymore. It is a bit heavy but worth it. I control the camera using a CamRanger. I can get repeatable results for HDR stacking because the camera doesn't move. Best yet, my clients really like seeing their gardens like never before and they are coming up with new views to photograph.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monster Rock Solid Tripod I bought this for panoramic photography. This along with a robotic camera head and Cam Ranger makes shooting 180/360 pictures from above to be very simple and also reduces the need for tilt/shift lens at a certain height when doing architecture. It is especially good with a GoPro omni or some other type of 360 by 180 type set up. You would need to get a 3/8 to 1/4 reducer. I've used this with a Nodal Ninja head for gigapixel photography and it excels at that as well Ask before you lift a camera up 20+ feet in a national park or you might have cause some excitement with the park rangers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works like it ought to. Not cheap but worth every penny. Yeah there are more expensive pneumatic units out there. This one is nice and portable and is solid enough for pre-sunset exterior architectural shots. Without the tie downs you'll need no more than a slight breeze when extended to about 20'. I've only used it on 5 shoots since I got it about a week ago so I haven't experimented with higher winds and teathering with the included ropes. I'm certain that tethering in higher winds will do nicely. I'm looking forward to doing some interior HDR shoots with it...big ballroom or arena...something will come along soon I hope. If you've ever tried pole photography then you will absolutley love this stand. Makes life so much easier!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great solution for my need This tripod seems to have a great combination of weight and portability; I can fit it in the back of my 3 series BMW when I fold the rear seats down. I was able to use it at about 15' high without attaching securing ropes during a 1-2 second exposure. Once I exceeded this height, there was a slight movement even without a breeze. I ordered expediated FedEx shipping and it arrived at my door in 24 hours! Unfortunately one of the legs has a dent and is slightly bent at the bottom, but it doesn't look like it will cause a structural weakness. B&H offered to replace or give me a small credit for the damage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! This is a great Stand! Solid. Versatile. Trustworthy. Operates very smoothly. I shoot Real Estate; lots of it, every day, and usually in hilly areas, where people like their privacy, and don't like noisy, invasive drones. This IS the perfect answer! By the way, Manfrotto doesn't have a bag for this, but I found a beauty! It's a 70-inch, padded, single ski bag! The stand fits perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed I was contemplating buying one of these for about a year and finally did for a project where I needed to get higher to get the shot. It is very high quality as you would expect from Monfrotto. It comes with rope tie downs that are not really described in the B&H description. I mounted a large body dslr on it and felt comfortable in doing so. Pretty stable with the tie down kit. Great setup for doing some low level aerial photos. It isn't light (but you don't want it to be). It is a great product. If you are thinking about getting one, you won't be disappointed.
