4.0 out of 5 stars Solid budget tripod, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mantona Scout Tripod with Ballhead (Accessory)
I was really impressed by the build quality of this tripod, both the ball head and the body. In my opinion it is not that far away from Manfrotto standards for a similarly sized tripod. The legs have clip locks on them which are much easier and faster to extend than the twist locks that are found on some budget tripods. The leg catch at the top allows the legs to be opened out in one of three positions: narrow (for tighter spaces), normal (for greater stability) and very wide (for ground work).

There are a few negatives: the ball head doesn't have a separate pan feature, making it unsuitable for panoramas, and the central pole doesn't have a hook for attaching weights to (for increased stability). For me these weren't big issues, but I did buy a Giottos MH5011 3-way head for greater flexibility.
