Don't be fooled by the center stalk as it can only be extended and does not go lower than shown in the photo, the legs fold upwards 180 degrees to sit along side it, this is why it is so compact. The leg locks are adjustable for wear and tear and for it's size it is a rigid little tripod.
The only criticism I can make is that the Head cannot be changed or removed, but hey, for the price and with the usual Manfrotto build quality you cant have everything.
On previous models I saw the head can be removed + replaced, but this one cannot, sadly.
Just picked up this excellent example of Manfrotto’s World renowned built quality and at a decent price too, just £117.00 on Amazon at the time of this review (a 30% discount on the RRP) .
There are two different size options available, the 30cm or 40cm (Size when closed) but for this Review I will be focusing on their 40cm version.
At first glance this tripod is not only pleasant to look at, but also practical with a compact size and fairly light too, at just 1.4kg or 3lbs.
The full specs of this Semi-professional grade tripod are;
– Hight when fully extended: 144cm or 56.7inch
– Size when closed down for storage: 40cm or 15.7inch
– Colour options are: Black with either; Red, Blue, Gray or Green accents.
– Weight: 1.4kg or 3lbs
The build quality of this tripod dose not disappoint, which is what we have come to expect from Manfrotto. When out and about it is great to have the option of such a compact tripod that is easy to carry, easy and fast to set up and has a quality ball head system for composing your shot, locking the ball head and getting your desired composition every time with the least hassle possible, compared to some of the other options out there. The Camera mounting system is well thought out too and secure with a double locking latch system for added protection of your camera. The tripod has a well built smart adjustment system for the legs, easily allowing you to select three options; 1. Packing mode, which allows you to fold the legs back giving you the compact storage design. 2. Normal use mode and 3. Low level shooting mode. The only possible downside to this tripod would be its weight restrictions, if you are planning on using a larger Pro DSLR or a Semi-Pro DSLR with a battery grip and a X-300mm lense, then this is not the tripod for you. However if you are using a standard Canon 70D size camera like myself with my trusty 17-85mm, then you will have no problems what so ever.
All in all I am well impressed with this tripod and I look forward to using it out on location. My main reason for getting the tripod was obviously its compact looking design, but after actually holding it in my hands and getting to test it out around my local area, I am a satisfied customer and would give this model top marks. (Based on my requirements)
My first major test of this tripod will be in the Scottish Highlands next week (October 13-18 2016) when I will fully put it through its paces and post a full on location, hands on review on my YouTube channel so check it out if you are looking around at different travel tripod options and can’t make a decision or if you are just interested in Travel Photography in general.
My overall star rating: 5 out of 5
