Manfrotto Single Leg Tripod Reviews
Great Legs but terrible spreader mechanism
The legs themselves are great, very stable, very tall. The locking mechanism that allows the legs to spread out is GARBAGE. 2 of the 3 legs are now broken and wont lock into place. I can still use it but not what I'd expect from Manfrotto.
Both Sets Are A+
What a wonderful product! I have owned one for 4-5 years and purchased another 2 years ago. Both are taller, stronger and easier to use than almost any of the competition. They are actually priced on the low end for their purpose and build quality. I use both with Sachtler FSB-8 heads. Wonderful combination. My only real criticism would to just be careful (read don’t) crank down on a magic arm on these round, carbon tubes, they could be damaged.
Hold massive weight!
These are basically art and science in one lovely user-friendly package. I would buy again and again.
Light but Rock Steady!
I am so happy with my Manfrotto 536 Carbon Fiber sticks! I shoot nature, landscapes, and travel photo and video. The 536 is the perfect gear for those long hikes to get the shots! Manfrotto really did a great job when they designed these. You'll be very glad you got these!
Super sturdy yet light with a huge height range, 11 to 7. Used for Lidar surveying. Also purchased a 100mm ball level adaptor to go with it that strangely has no bubble level. Oh well, not the tripods fault.
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.
Really big, really sturdy
For a long time I have always thought of carbon-fiber tripods as super lightweight travel tripods that got the job done, but were not the most sturdy or rigid. Certainly not something you would mount a big fluid-head on, with pan drag maxed out, and expect to get rock-solid pans. But then I bought this Manfrotto 536 and it completely changed my mind. It is REALLY big, REALLY sturdy, and moderately heavy - but no complaints. I love this tripod. I have a Miller CX10 fluid head mounted on it, and it is a beautiful combination. I can get butter-smooth tilts and pans even with a 400 mm lens. The rigidity of the tripod is as good as any conventional video tripod (with double-legs, spreaders and what-not) I have ever used. I have not used it outdoors much so far, so I can't comment on how it handles salt-water, mud, sub-zero etc.
The tripod is fairly solid and compact and light considering how big it gets fully extended.
