    Manfrotto 536 reviews

    536 Carbon Fiber Video Tripod is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best investment for my career This is one of the best piece of gear I have ever bought. It is well made, extremely high + fabulously low due to the fact that it has no column. I can use this stick with both still and motion picture since a 75 or 100mm half ball will take both types of head. You don't need apple boxes to match your 6 foot 3 actor's eye level anymore. This might be a bit more expensive than others tripod but this thing is built to last. I've been traveling with it, using it on different terrace without any problems. Don't be cheap on tripod since this will stay side by side with you for your whole career. Thank you B&H! You guys are awesome as always!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy but light tripod... This tripod is versatile as it can take 75mm and 100mm ball mount fluid heads. I purchased this to use with my Sachtler DV 10 SB fluid Head for lightwieght run and gun set ups instead of the heavier Sachtler Double Leg Carbon Fiber Tripod (100ENG 2CF) that I already own. It also providesa a sturdy platform for my O'Connor 1030HD fluid Head. I'm using all this with a Red Epic Dragon with PL mount Prime and Zoom lenses. Also supports my Trost Motion M-Series Slider perfectly. The adjustabel tilt on the legs is great giving you more height flexibility. The lowest setting is about equivalent to a hi-hat height. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't think of anything I'd change These were my first real sticks, after using so many budget tripods. This tripod puts them all to shame. It's solid, tall, easy to adjust, relatively light, durable (so far!), and even looks good. I honestly don't know how to improve on them. I was a bit worried that the fiber would be easily scratched (I even wrapped the top riser in foam and athletic tape), but so far they still look almost brand new. The hardware is also impressive; even good steel will rust in the FL salt air and humidity, but so far (over a year since I got them), all the bolts and screws are still a shiny silver.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Legs buckle I have been using Manfrotto for almost 20 years. I never leave reviews, but felt compelled to do so in this case. Went through two Manfrotto legs. Both cases the legs buckled with weight load of 9 pounds. I had two cameras drop because of faulty legs buckling. In one case, I had Touch Screen LCD destroyed and lens destroyed because of the legs buckling in and the camera tipping over. Forget bad customer service, as Manfrotto does not even return emails. The last shoot I had to tape the legs clips with gaffer tape in order to get through the rest of the shoot. The legs could not handle payloads well under their limitation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding height range!! As most other reviewers noted, the height range on these sticks are astounding. These sticks easily support my dslr and 4 ft jib at their height, allowing an incredible variety of shots: I'm happy I don't have to pack baby legs. The only disadvantages I can see are that panning sometimes tips the tripod over (and I can't find a good way to hook on a sandbag to keep it steady) and that there are so many latches it can take a bit of time to level them all and lock them up at the height you want as the legs stick a bit (an issue I am told resolve itself). That said, very happy with the purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid choice! I specialize in wildlife videos shot with Canon dslr's and heavy Canon telephoto lenses. With all the peripherals (external monitors, audio recorders, mics, etc.) the overall weight overpowered my former video head/tripod combination, so I upgraded to the new Manfrotto 504HD video head and the Manfrotto 536 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod. An excellent combination in terms of strength, durability, and toughness. Since I have to pack all this stuff into the field, the lightness of the 536 is vital. The carbon fibre technology also noticeably absorbs vibration very effectively compared to my previous aluminum tripods. The only con I can think of is minor -- it doesn't ship with a kevlar carrying case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most versatile sticks I've used USES: -Pro Video work -Docs, Features, Shorts, Web Content -Used with new bridge tech Manfrotto 504 head PROS: -Light weight, minimal vibrations, 75mm/100mm bowl options -Legs fully extended are amazingly tall -Legs angle out to get a great low angle, replaces a high hat in most situations -Amazing versatility -The legs move independently of one another so shooting in the field is simplified. Shot around a rocky creek bed with ease. CONS: -I do wish there was an optional spreader, to keep the legs locked in place. After they're broken in the legs will fall into place, which is good at the end of the day, but makes slight tripod repositioning a pain at times. -Since there's not spreader extending the legs while the camera is attached is a bit of a balancing act, even with two people. -Metal spikes did end up scratching a floor, the rubber knobs naturally start to screw themselves up the threading, exposing the sharp points. Wooden floors beware.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight sticks Using this set of carbon fiber sticks along with the Manfrotto 504 head. I've had Sacthler, Miller, and Vinten systems, and there are tradeoffs/pluses with most of them. At the price point, this system seems to work well for me. After numerous systems with spreaders that tend to be janky and or break, I've come to really like the 3 legs untethered to a mid or floor spreader. These sticks fully extended, get the camera really high. I wish the spread of the legs wasn't quite so wide in the normal configuration. It tends to create a large footprint. I also wish that the mechanism to release the legs into a super wide configuration (which I use primarily to get extra low) was in a different location. It is quite easy to bump them which makes the system unstable without knowing.
