    Manfrotto Tripod MK290DUA3-BHUS 290…, September 23, 2016

    It is lightweight and compact without compromising sturdiness. It weighs about four pounds and has an optional carrying pouch. When compared to my Gitzo, which weighs eleven ponds, the Manfrotto is a pleasure to use. Also, the Gitzo is a pan/tilt whereas the Manfrotto is a ball-head for easy adjustment. I would highly recommend this to a friend.

    Very nice quality – small irritations – more than I would expect for the price., December 2, 2016

    I suppose that for the price I expected a little more ease of use – but I do like it and it is of superior quality overall. I wouldn’t be afraid to take it anywhere and use it for anything. What I find a challenge is that (I take mostly food photos) – when turning the head for a vertical photo, the adjustment key hits my camera unless I take a lot of extra care that I would rather not worry about. Secondly – my $25 cheepy tripod has a crank for cranking up and down – which I love. This is a manual slide adjust – which can also be a pain to get it adjust just right. When I make overhead food videos, the arm is JUST RIGHT for that purpose. The tripod is balanced nicely and even with a heavier lens, I haven’t worried about tip over. Very very nice quality – it is just some of the tiny things that get on my nerves. The leg latches are super good quality and easy to use.

    Very nice tripod, well made and I love how you can get to ground level with it. It’s not to heavy, it’s solid, well made and sturdy. The plate is perfect too, some are to small, the one from Manfrotto is the prefect size. I have used it with my Nikon D750 and my heavy Nikon 80-200mm lens without a problem, the ball head holds it well. Do note though, it’s NOT a travel tripod. It doesn’t fit in standard luggage. If you plan to travel with it get measurements of it and compare to your travel luggage. I do highly recommend this product. Oh, and register it for a 10 year warranty!
