I am a tripod aficionado -- owning the original, famous Gitzo G1228 Traveler carbon fiber w/ genuine Arca-Swiss head -- $1500+ today.

Okay, it''s unfair to compare a $1500 tripod/head w/ a $350 unit -- yes.
Nevertheless it''s WRONG for reviews not to give ALL the PROS and CONS of this unit.

Pros:
1. Very light weight -- small enough to fit in most carry-on rollers.
2. Comes with decent carrying bag.
3. Made by Manfrotto (via China I suspect).
4. Twist leg locks work well and are smooth.
5. The built-in leveling base is nice -- the degree of correction isn''t great but decent enough.
6. It works .. mostly .. but not great.
7. Construction quality is decent.
8. I wish it was at least 6 inches higher -- for taller people.
9. There should be a hook at the bottom of the center column to hand weights.
10. Carbon fiber leg stiffness is passable.

Cons:
1. The fluid head action is a total joke. It''s not smooth and the locking tilt and pan levers are also the drag adjustments, meaning there are no drag adjustments. It''s no crappy Velbon action, but considering the video head, bought separately costs $100 - I expect a much better. After all, this is the V2 version of the tripod/head.

2. The video fluid head has way too much play in it .. because of the plastic. A little more metal would''ve given the entire unit much better rigidity.

3. I wish Manfrotto would give convertible rubber/spikes feet. I''m sure it''d only cost $1-$2 to put in.

Summary - let''s give a letter grade:
Legs - C
Tripod Collar - C
Video Head - F
Design - B (fold-ability)

Overall grade: C .. or what you''d expect in a $350 tripod. But I expected more from Manfrotto to be frank with you.

The overall design, look, feel and functionality of the tripod stand is good and reasonable for the price. No complaints with that. But the fluid head is an absolute joke. I haven''t had any issues with broken parts as others have noted but then again after reading the other reviews for that aspect of this product, I have been very careful with tightening and handling the adjust screws on the fluid head which may be why I''ve been fortunate in that respect.

I am going to suspect that those who have had no issues or complaints with the fluid head are using equipment that is fairly light. Maybe 2 lbs or less. I on the other hand, have a Sony HXR-MC2500 Pro Video Camera weighing approximately a little over 7 lbs and I''ve been thoroughly disgusted with the lack of support the fluid head gives.

As long as the camera is positioned in a flat horizontal position and the screws are adequately tightened there isn''t much of a problem. But angle the camera slightly down or up and be prepared for a catastrophe. I had to catch my camera on several occasions for fear that it would tilt the tripod to the ground because the fluid head won''t support the weight.

Bottom line, if you decide to purchase this product for the tripod; you won''t be disappointed. But if you think you''re getting a quality fluid head with it, I''d suggest you don''t get your hopes that high or you''ll be sorely disappointed.

I''m going to purchase a good pro fluid head to replace the junk that came with it; which will add more $$$ onto the initial investment which clearly wasn''t the idea I had in mind. So as a piece of advice; you may want to keep those types of figures in mind before committing to purchase this product.

If you have a camera that is fairly light weight (maybe around 2 lbs or less) you''ll probably be okay.

Overall, I''m happy with the "tripod". But I would have gladly paid less for this product if I had the option to purchase the tripod without the crappy fluid head.

*UPDATE Mon Jul 8*
Downgraded from 3 Stars to 1 Star.
Took this to Joshua Tree National Park on Sat Jun 29. The twist locks are not good. Sometimes you can screw off the lock out of its place by accident. And it doesn''t tighten when you twist it right to tighten, rendering it useless. Because then the tripod cannot stand. You end up turning it forever when you realize the twist lock has been disconnected from the tripod leg. It was a nightmare putting this back together in the dark, mind you I was standing on giant rocks and could have lost my balance and fell. The twist locks look fancy, but I''m going back to lever locks I''m sorry. I thank Mardith from Amazon Customer Service for allowing me to return this tripod after the Return Window closed on Sat Jun 6. Too many problems for a $300 tripod. I''ve had enough.

Had this for less than a month. The first time using it I tried to collapse it, and the plastic lever that you''re supposed to push before you fold the leg wouldn''t budge. I left it alone and it was fine the next day and I was able to collapse it. And then it happened again just yesterday Wed May 22. I feel somewhere down the line the lever is going to come loose or stop working completely. But overall its a nifty tripod, fits great on my camera backpack.

Where do I begin listing the problems with this tripod?

1. First of all, the horizontal rotation seems to be just a big screw. That''s a problem because, if you rotate your camera (or spotting scope or whatever) horizontally, you are also unscrewing it. For this reason it becomes wobbly and that defeats the entire purpose of a tripod. If you screw it all the way then it''s not wobbly but you won''t be able to rotate it any further in one direction. Again, when you are using your camera/tripod system to photograph something that moves that is, well, very bad.

2. It''s not sturdy. I used it only 3 or 4 months when it simply fell apart. By "fall apart" I mean that the entire base upon which the camera is mounted broke into three pieces when all I did was try to remove the camera. Again, when you are mounting thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment on a tripod this needs to not happen.

3. The system for mounting and unmounting the camera is very badly designed. It uses a relatively small knob that is based on a screw. This is bad because it''s mounted right under the camera, which makes it hard to reach. Furthermore, I found that the camera was not secure unless I tightened the screw VERY hard. This, too, was a nightmare because that knob is very hard to turn. This, in turn, makes it very hard to remove the camera. This is unforgivably bad design.

In short, this was the worst tripod I have ever owned and I deeply regret buying it.

This is a really well made tripod! Its mostly aluminum with a few plastic parts. Its not the most light weight tripod at a little over 4lb but its compactness helps. It comes with a carrying case with some padding built in. It has liquid movement for rotation and up and down tilt, which makes the moment so smooth.

Pros:
- Compact
- Well balanced once set up
- Liquid movement ( tilt and turn only) is sooo smooth!
- Removable head ( the real reason is cost soo much )
- Rubber feet grip well
- locking feet

Cons:
- Cost
- No color options
- just large enough so it will not fit in the drink pocket on most backpacks

I just received this tripod today. I searched for something like this with a fluid head after discovering that my Sony 4k camcorder was extremely sensitive to even subtle movement. It arrived in perfect condition and I''m more than delighted with it''s performance. Both pan and tilt are extremely smooth, and the carbon fiber construction keeps it rock steady, even more so than the aluminum version. (I have the Befree aluminum version for traveling with point and shoot, ILCs and DSLR still camera photos.) Both of them exude quality in both build and performance. I couldn''t recommend them more highly. Absolutely worth the money.

I know that there are cheaper tripods, but I wanted to make sure that I bought a quality product since this is what holds up my expensive cameras. It doesn''t make sense to spend all this money on expensive camera equipment and cheap out on the tripod.

Before the purchase I researched the web for a substitution to an old tripod, then decided for the Manfrotto Befree. In any case, if I didn''t like it I would return it. When opened I was surprised by how sturdy it is, somewhat heavier than my old aluminum one, but the feeling of rigidity specially when panning makes up for it.
There are two considerations to have in mind: the Befree comes in two leg models, one that you tighten the legs by a round nut and another model with a pressure latch, I got the rounds nuts. Most photographers don''t like this type of legs because if they aren''t tight enough the tripod fails, this may happen in a long future due to wear but to me the most important fact is that the tightening takes time, for that reason alone I would get the latch configuration.
Also, it comes two configurations with heads for videos or photos, My main interest is videos, so my choice was the video head, and in my mind I could always buy the photo head and interchange it. Probably end up buying another tripod for photo with the legs that have the latch feature.

I knew the idea of this was to be portable and that it was not built for more robust rigs. However, I also expected to be able to fully lock off the head while in use. It does not. No matter how tight I twist the difficult-to-grip mechanisms, it moves. And that means it is inevitably going to slip. If you are mounting a point-and-shoot or an iphone to it, it will probably be fine. But on a smaller mirrorless camera with a lightweight lens, there is inevitably going to be a major issue with things sliding out of frame as everything gives way to gravity if you take your hands off it.

The reviews on YouTube and magazines make this package to appear awesome, however that needs some qualification. It is if you are using a small camera this setup might work for you. I have six tripods and this one my least favorite of them all. If you put any extra weight on this head/tripod it will not function properly. I used my Sony A7C, Small Rig cage, Rode wireless microphone, and a Sony 20mm 1.8 and a the very small Sony 28-60mm G lens and a Freelworld LUT6S six inch Ultra bright 2600 nits monitor and was too much for the head/tripod to handle. The weight of the camera and the accessories made the unit unbalanced and hard to handle. The pan and tilt are not all that smooth, it does not pan and tilt smoothly. Because of the smoothness issue it is not acceptable when you are doing quality video production. The tripod is too light for a reasonably weighted camera and accessories. I used my PeakDesign travel tripod with a friction pan/tilt and it was fine. You can weight the tripod down as there is a hook just off to the side of the of the head, but the hook is not at the center of the tripod. I purchased the package from Amazon Canada.

Compared to the cheap tripods I put up with in the past, this is a massive upgrade. The tripod is solid, mostly metal, though still fairly light. The video head is fantastic, panning and tilting is smooth and you can control each individually, and you can quickly level it. It also collapses down to be very short, easily fits into medium sized backpacks. The case is also a nice touch, it seems good quality. The M-lock feature is a great timesaver, the legs will automatically snap into 3 positions, allowing you to set up quickly. One nice feature I didn''t know about till it arrived is the mount on the side. You can connect a magic arm and mount accessories to your tripod such as a monitor or audio recorder. Very handy! So far I have no problems with it as someone who does a lot of run and gun work and needs reliable, light gear. Highly recommend, go for it if you''re on the fence!
