5.0 out of 5 stars Handy to have, 2 Mar 2012
This review is from: Manfrotto MKC3-H01 Compact Photo-Movie Kit - Black (Camera)
This has been a great addition to my ever growing collection of photography/videography stuff. I needed a tripod to use with a small SD card camcorder, something that would take up very little space (or as little as possible) and be light. This ticks all the boxes, it provides a small, easy to carry, compact tripod the extends up to a reasonable height, isn't the sturdiest tripod in the world be to be fair is isn't meant to be. If i wanted a rock solid tripod that has smooth panning operations I will buy one for a few hundred quid, as something to drag around a festival to video local bands then this is great. It also fits in my bikes back box making it much easier to transport. I have a bigger tripod that I use for my DSLR's (Nikon D2x and Fuji S2 Pro) although this has handled the Fuji the Nikon is just too heavy for it, but it isn't meant to take it. This tripod is great for what I bought it for and when I bought it the description did mention that it wasn't meant to take a massive weight.

I have just bought this tripod. Do you have a bag for yours that will fit with the head on? Have been reading bag reviews and some say they don't fit well with other models.

Mine came with a bag that fitted it snugly with the head folded so the grip was down the line of the legs. Well it did until my wife left it at a music festival. LOL
