Excellent and good value
on 9 June 2009
This seems to be a high quality, well made piece of kit, as you would expect from Manfrotto. The head tilts and pans smoothly and the locking mechanisms fall easily to hand, the transition from having a vertical to a horizontal centre column works a treat too.
I only have two reservations: The first is that the hooks for hanging a weight on are pretty small (I had to resort to some gardening twine to hang my camera bag). The second is that the folded tripod is surprisingly tall and the head adds an extra 6 inches or so to the overal height, so if portability is a big issue for you a four section tripod might be a better idea.
Overall, though, I'm very pleased I bought this.
