Lightweight tripod with super smooth head.

  • Relatively lightweight
  • Insanely smooth head
  • Screw to fasten coupling plate with sometimes difficult to reach (with DSLR).

A tripod from Manfrotto is already a good purchase in advance. The Italian brand exudes solidity and professionalism. The tripod comes with a spacious carrying bag with a wide carrying strap. Due to the light weight, the tripod is therefore easy to take to locations. The head is one of the smoothest heads I've worked with in recent years. The stepless adjustment of the resistance largely contributes to this. The tripod is also easy to raise due to the easy click system (plastic). You can find it a drawback, but as far as I'm concerned it's not something to put the tripod in front of: the spreader is not adjustable (in length of the legs) and cannot be removed from the tripod. Or I haven't figured out how yet (nor found the need). What's a bigger downside is that the screw on the right that secures the coupling plate is not easily accessible when a DSLR (or wider camera) is mounted. The trick that Manfrotto has devised for this (difficult to explain, look it up somewhere) is not foolproof. All in all, a very nice tripod, because it is so light and makes incredibly smooth movements. A definite recommendation!

Top video tripod.

  • Very smooth movements
  • firm
  • At high resistance setting of the head it sometimes moves

Very good tripod for its price, with very smooth movements in video. Is also high enough for large camera operators. All types of camera fit on it, the click plate is a bit large for a DSLR. The only drawback is that if you set the resistance very stiff to, for example, do very slow pan movements, the tripod will sometimes move - in that case firmly hold onto one of the tripod legs, or add weight. Overall very satisfied with it. Recommended for beginners and professionals.

Very happy with it!

  • firm
  • Easy to use
  • There is no easy mount on it, you have to fasten the camera with a screw

First bought a stabilizer, but not what I was looking for in the end. Then ordered and used it. I immediately realized how it worked, the head is very nice to use and easy to adjust. Easy to adjust and comes with a good bag. The head makes smooth movements. You will notice that the price and quality are well balanced. This is a really great tripod! Compared to a tripod of 80 euros, you notice what you pay for when you buy it. What I do regret is that the attachment of the camera is a bit uncomfortable because there is no easy click mount on it. You need to tighten your camera with a screw and a screwdriver. That can be different! But not very shocking or very annoying. If the camera is fixed, it is also good!
