great but cheaper than former versions

By

from Santa Monica, CA  -  Pro Photographer

This is the best value for the price, however compared to older models, it feels cheaper. As heavy as the legs are, they feel flimsy and not as sturdy as imagined. The mid-level spreader can be helpful in some situations, but the ground spreader is much better as you can hold it down with your foot to spread the legs. WIth the mid-level it's more tedious. The head is great, but I had to return the first one because the tension adjustment was clicking tighter or looser as I adjusted it. The head does move really smoothly though, and there's nothing cheaper that's worth it if you're shooting video.

Awesome

By

from Huntington Beach, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this with my Red Scarlet and it works like a charm. The bubble level is easy to use and it feels well constructed for a tripod at this price level. I don't particularly like the plastic locks on the aluminum legs, but they work just fine and definitely feel like they're locking things down.

Fluidly Better Than anything Under $1200

By

from NY  -  Pro Photographer

Strongly Recommended for its quality features, strong build and beautiful style. This tripod is better than anything south of $1200, and quite honestly, I cant see anyone telling me they have a better one at $2,000. Fluid Head works well... locking plate is very durable, screw in areas for accessories like TV monitor, mics, PA Mics, etc makes this tripod ahead of most... the legs are very versitle and strong... did I mention the sexy Italian design??? well... what else could you want? Buy & enjoy.... stuff the savings into another lens or buy you girlfriend some jewlery.... ;-)

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ROBERT H  I have one other like this tripod, for the price it is a really good option if you dont want to spend upwards of 5000 for a professional video tripod.
Shopper  Hi, will the camera plate on this tripod work with a Sony VCTU plate?
MARCELLE G  I don't really have a solid answer for you as I haven't used the Sony VCTU. I can however say that I've put multiple DSLR's , a couple different Sony Hanycams, and a RED Scarlet on it and have had NO issues. It really is a great set of sticks. I'm actually contemplating a second set.
Shopper  If I purchase this Tripod kit with the 504HD Fluid Video Head and I purchase the 502HD Fluid Video Head for the Manfrotto 685B NeoTec Monopod Deluxe will the quick release plates be interchangeable? I know the 504HD comes with the longer plate but will that plate attach to the 502HD and vice versa?
ROBERT H  yes, they are the same.
