I received this product the other day, and after putting it through the paces, I must say that it's is an incredible sturdy and well constructed tripod....especially for the price point. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good quality, reliable tripod!
This is the second Manfrotto tripod I have purchased. This one is great. I shoot mostly outdoors, so the bowl with its ability to level very quickly is really important. It not only saves time in the field, but also in post. The pan is smooth, and the tilt is smooth. In shooting position, the unit is rock solid. It is big and heavy, and there is no way I know of to use it on a really low level. I use a different support for ground level shots. It was a good purchase for me. The one complaint I have is with the supplied zippered carrying case. The case is well made, Manfrotto should rightfully be proud of that, but the one that came with my unit clearly did not fit. It was way too long (twice the length of my unit), and too small around. I made one out of canvas, and gave the original to charity.
