Nicely Made/Sturdy

Well Made but lacks means to lock arm to tripod ( I use Gitzo so maybe there is a way if using Manfrotto?) so arm can free spin.

Solid Support

By

from Wisconsin  -  Pro Photographer

Use it a couple times a week in shooting tethered to a MacBook Pro. Solid (thus safe) build quality, but heavy. Good lock down capability.

Solid platform for tethered shooting

By

from Texas  -  Pro Photographer

Used with the Gitzo G065 monitor platform, the Manfrotto 131-DDB is the perfect setup for shooting tethered - in-studio or outdoors. Sturdy and well constructed, the 131-DDB sits atop a tripod by means of it's 3/8" female thread attachment. I connect my Markins ballhead on one side and then my laptop on the other (via the Gitzo G065), mount my camera, then tether it to my laptop. Reviewing my shots is that much easier on these old eyes as a result. All connection points are solid even though the turn wheels are plastic. Both horizontal and vertical adjustments can be made quickly and easily via turn handles. The 131-DDB is heavy but not unreasonably so. I have seen it be used as part of a larger setup for mounting a DSLR on a car. I would say this product is definitely worthwhile for shooters who shoot tethered be it in studio or outdoors.

Works outstanding for Tethering!

By

from Charlotte, NC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

As with just about anything made by Manfrotto it is SOLID! The double head support is ideal for any situation where you want to have the option to have up to 4 heads/items mounted on your tripod! I wouldn't suggest the use of this anywhere you are planning to move locations often as this in itself adds more time and complexity to your gear setup and teardown. I use it with a laptop stand for tethered shooting..works wonders!

Versatility Stick

By

from Forest Falls, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I love this piece of gear, it gives me options. It took a little time to get used to the sliding placement of the mounts but it is so versatile. I use it shooting video and photos simultaneously or shooting wide angle and Close-ups at the same time. I use the end mounts for versatility when shooting macro photography. I use the double head with a tether table when I 'm shooting portraits and night shots. Rarely does one piece of gear get used in so many different set-ups.
