This tripod is a nice piece of kit. Well made, feels good and with the geared center post and 405 head - perfect for my needs. Very pleased with this tripod.

sturdy; not too heavy; straight-forward to use.

I have three of these tripods. That's how much I like them! They are at about the right intersect between solidly sturdy, and still being light enough to carry. Their operation and use are also straight-forward. Simple and uncluttered.

Should have had this one a long time ago..

As a commercial photographer sharp images rule the day, and with the higher resolution cameras a solid tripod is as important as good lenses.

I now have two of these for my time-lapse rig. And they are just the right combination of sturdy, simplicity to use, and light weight. Well, relatively light-weight, since this is a big tripod. It's so good, that I sold another tripod to buy a 2nd one of these. Unlike Bono, I now have found what I am looking for - a perfect tripod for my needs.

I have great views from my condo of Lake Michigan and Chicago; as such always have cameras ready to go mounted on tripods. This model is very sturdy and great for big zooms. So now I have two of them and a smaller 190xprob all Manfrotto.

Absolutely Love This Tripod!

I absolutely love this tripod and would highly recommend it if you have the budget. It IS very expensive, but the last tripod I purchased was an aluminum Manfrotto several years ago. I've own a professional studio for several years, and it was just time for an upgrade. I've walked many miles carrying my aluminum, so I was ready for the lighter carbon fiber. I haven't used it too much, but so far, I really like it!

I'm using this tripod for both stills and video with telephoto lenses up to 400mm. I needed a very solid and stable tripod that I could take on walks and hikes. I have smaller and lighter tripods but they vibrate with video and telephoto lenses.
