    Manfrotto 209 reviews

    209 Tabletop Tripod is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and compact. Used this with a Nikon D90 and primarily the 18-105mm for my latest vacation. Added the 234 swivel tilt head for a cheap and light travel tripod option. Tripod stayed with me for the entire trip and never felt heavy or in the way. Overall quite pleased with the legs/head combination for simple shots where you have a wide enough place (like a rock or a wall, need around 8 inches wide) to setup the camera. Stable enough for what it is. Also works OK with the 70-300mm, this is getting a little bouncy, but the head can hold up this lens fine and the pod remains stable. The photo on the website is a bit misleading, as it doesn't show the legs of the pod fully extended. When set up, the bottom bolt is around 3/4 of an inch from the table. There is no stable intermediate setup, it's fully extended or nothing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Tripod Big Strength Wow is all i can say about this tripod, I bought this to take on a trip LA in a few weeks and for taking up to the Hancock and Sear Tower observatories. I didnt want to travel with my large tripod and the observatories do not allow tripods (this is so small you can sneak it in). I use this with a manfrotto 488RC2 ball head attached. My Canon 7D with my heaviest lens Canon 70-200mm 2.8L IS is supported by this tiny little tripod. I dont think I will be using that lens with it much but its nice to know I could in a pinch. Overall I wish I had picked this up earlier. Many times I dont bring my full size tripod and then wish I had it for a shot. With this being so small it stays in my bag just in case. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Small Support Going for VR 360 camera I bought this small tripod base to screw into a light stand for use with my Rico Theta S 360 degree camera. With five 22 inch sections for the light stand, the whole thing extended puts the camera up to about 9.5 feet in the air. When a 360 degree shot is made the tripod stand is so tiny that it is not seen and I have found that I can also place my foot on one of the legs to really hold it steady and still the stand nor the tripod can be seen. It is the perfect solution for me and the whole almost 10 foot stand is nothing to carry around.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Center joint easily breaks apart. I had bought this tripod as a set, which also includes 482 Micro Ball Head, 709 Extension column, a thread adapter and a high quality leather bag. The whole set is extremely useful when shooting night scenes and macros. And it also serves as a great stabilization assist when shooting hand-held (just attach it to the camera and lean it against a stable table, wall, rock or even your chest!).But... and it is a big but... The most crucial part, the lower central part which holds the legs in place and meets the whole load by itself, is made of very weak material. Probably zinc, not aluminium. As the load increases, the legs pivoted by the upper part, push this part down and out on 3 axis. And there is not enough meat to bear a possible excessive load on the legs. It will hold your D-SLR with lens without a problem, but it will break apart if you put any more stress, or if there is a minor impact (and accidents always happen!). Mine has broken into 3 pieces when a smart friend leaned his arm against the tripod on the table.I inspected the broken pieces and saw that there were huge design flaws. The center hole is much wider than required. If the center hole was 5 mm, it would be much stronger and it would not effect it's operation in anyway. Plus, if the legs were placed only 0.5 mm more apart, it would have more meat and would be at least 2 times stronger. If this part wasn't conical. It would be possible to place a larger collar on the bottom and it would make it even stronger. And if it was made of brass instead of zinc, it would be -maybe- 20 times stronger. There are many other things could be done to make this crucial part much stronger.I definitely recommend having a table top tripod like this in your camera bag, but not this one. The others that have similar design (like Oben) seems to have a larger joints and may have more strength. Leica has a completely different design and it is obviously the strongest in this class. But it is not as compact when folded, it's heavier and much more expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small tripod I've been looking for something portable to keep in my bag for the unplanned slow shutter speed shots. This, plus a mini ballhead fit the bill. I was able to take a sharp 15 second(!) shot with a Canon 7D and Zeiss 21mm lens (it's really heavy) by bracing this tripod against a solid surface. For taking shots without the bracing, you'll want to have the lens directly over one of the legs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, recommend extender Stable, nice tripod. Picture shows leg only about 50% extended. Fully extended the head of the tripod is only a few inches (like 4-5 max) off the ground even with a ball head. I would recommend the central extender arm. I tried to use this at the beach and my camera was very close to touching the sand with the arms extended.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good design, bad material. Awesome design made with terrible materials. Build this mount with aluminum or actually steel and it is worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I use this with a DSLR remote camera set up. Perfect for getting a low angle when used with a ballhead. Also, your lens can't be too long or it will tip over the tripod. If you don't have a ballhead you can prop it up with with your lens cap.
