FEISOL CT-3472M2 overview

  • 1Description

The Elite Tripod CT-3472 M2 from Feisol is constructed using CNC milled 6061-T6 aluminum and high-grade carbon fiber legs that make the tripod a lightweight 3.9 lb. Also, by unlocking the twist locks, the 4-section tripod can reach a maximum height of 57.9", and with the 3 variable leg angles of 25, 50, and 75°, the support can go as low as 3.4". Meanwhile, Feisol's Rapid anti-leg rotation technology does not allow the legs to twist when fully extended. Because of the 66 lb weight capacity, the tripod supports mirrorless to large format cameras for professional applications. Additionally, the legs fold 180° in reverse, which makes it a compact 20.5", and the built-in bubble level ensures that your horizon is aligned every time.

    FEISOL CT-3472M2 reviews

    Elite Tripod CT-3472 M2 Rapid is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the Right One! Very stable and weight is no issue! I like the fast set up and closing. I twist both locks on a leg at the same time to unlock and extend the legs and lock them without removing my hand from the leg. To close I unlock the top lock,slide my hand down and unlock the bottom lock,slide my hand down to the bottom of the leg and close both sections at the same time and lock them both at the same time with one hand. Really fast Moving for wildlife is quick and easy!. I went with this heavier tripod because my other tripod would easily vibrate with my D500 with a 200-500 and TC,with the slightest touch or breeze. The standard foam tube wraps are a really nice. Wish I had bought it a long time ago!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! My first experience with higher end tripod legs. Set-up was quick, adjustments made on the fly, I couldn't ask for more. My son and I did a photo trip to Southern Utah last week-end working slot canyons in the Grand Staircase area. I'm running a Really Right Stuff BH-55 full size ball head on these legs. Nikon D-700 w/battery base and Nikkor 28-70mm F2.8. Not a light system but very stable and manageable all day on the trails. The ease of leg adjustments was very pleasing. Shots came in may crazy location where flexibility in leg adjustments where a must. This unit did not disappoint. Legs disassembled easily for a quick rinse under the faucet after a day in the sand. Love the quick twist locks for ease and flexibility of adjustment on the fly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Still/Cine Solution I hate lightweight travel tripods for backpacking use and was looking for carbon fiber tripod legs with large diameter tubes suitable for a combination of still and motion work. I found it in the CT-3472. The leg tubes on this tripod are massive compared to others I researched. The twist locks are also huge and should do well when working in cold weather. The foam pads on all three legs make it comfortable to carry the tripod with a camera and long lens attached. The quality is exceptional with nicely machined CNC-milled components. I also purchased spikes for the tripod. The correct spikes to buy are B&H FESPST. The spikes are sold individually, so you need to purchase three of them. The spikes are also massive with large threads (about 5/8-11). Since my tripod legs are often submerged in fresh or salt water, I applied NeverSeize compound to the threads to assure they could be removed easily for cleaning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I started off with an old Velbon Stratos 450 I found at Goodwill, moved on to a Vanguard Alta 263AP. Rather short for a 6' guy and not up to a real 12 Lb camera and lens. My concern was Height, Stability and Price. This fits that in spades. The head plate sets about my chin. I set it up, all legs extended full and hung from it, I weigh 195 lbs, Didn't move!! Planted a Really Right Stuff BH-55 Ball Head on it and, This has got it going on! My Second choice was the Really Right Stuff TVC-45 at over twice the price, I was having a hard time justifying the cost for a hobby. This Feisol checked all my boxes and then some.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and love the optional quick leveling head The tripod is very solid and will take a 600mm f/4 lens in stride. Being able to use the regular base or the self-leveling one in seconds is a terrific feature. The grip is very secure for locking and unlocking the legs. The only aspect to be aware of is that Feisol makes 3 different types of spikes for their tripods but none of them can be used with the CT-3472 tripod and this tripod has the worst leg ends I have encountered, a piece of plastic that is like the cap on a cane.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't stand up to weather I've owned this tripod for 2+ years now. During that time it has failed me on several occasions, and I find it needs constant maintenance. I've had to send it back to Feisol twice due to issues with the angle locks not working on the spider. I have to remember to re-tighten all the leg locks on a particular leg if I make an adjustment, or I run the risk of the leg "sinking".� Does not stand up AT ALL to the Utah / Arizona desert. Dust will brick this tripod, forcing a complete teardown, cleaning, and reassembly.� My Sirui R-series tripod is much better in all respects. If you work in the field, do yourself a favor and pass this one by. Spend the extra $$ and buy a Gitzo or RRS, or maybe a Sirui W series.� �This one's only good for studio work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable and Light I recently upgraded to this set of legs after my prior tripod (different manufacturer) fell apart. It gave me the opportunity to buy this tripod after eyeing it for some time. After a few weeks of using it, I am happy with it. It is SO much lighter than my other tripod because of the carbon fiber vs aluminum, but a whole lot more stable. The legs on this tripod do not buckle or bend with the weight of a Canon 6D with battery grip and Canon 70-200mm L lens. I am pleased very much with the purchase, even considering the price tag. But you get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tripod I've ever owned My previous tripod was a Sirui carbon fiber M-3204X tripod, I had several issues with it (leg sections used comes off while extending), so I decided to upgrade, first looked at the really right stuff tripods and head, but decided not to because of the price. I bought this tripod and Induro BHL-3S from B&H in November 2015. I'm very happy with this set up, I've been using it very often for landscape photography.I also bought the feisol spikes and the leveling base, both works great with this tripod. Legs sections move very easily and locks very well without any difficulty.Size: It is fairly decent size( section tripod, so relatively shorter than the RRS. I don't have any problem carrying this around.Weight: very light, I love this partStability: Great
