Loved it so much!

I am so pleased with the quality, It's everything a photographer or a filmer would want for an absolute awesome price!

Meh, disappointing.

I have a slightly heavier Manfrotto and thought this might be a good first tripod for a friend. The head feels really cheap and the button mount means you can't set the camera flat on a table anymore. The hinges feel as if they might loosen over time and the center pole is not smooth to adjust. Oh well, it'll do for now.

Head moves. Not just in wind, I mean it slips slowly in perfect conditions, really really advise against it, any cheap one half this price performs better.

Manfrotto Compact Tripod Kit

I purchased this thinking that it was going to be a good tripod. It had the Manfrotto name, it had to be good. Wrong! The construction of the head is cheap, and even half extension is not stable at all. Any wind, movement and you're going to get camera shake and blurred shots.

Cheap construction, camera mount is odd

Never thought that Manfrotto will stamp their brand on this. This is probably the worst tripod they ever made. The camera mount is really odd, I thought my DSLR will fall off when I put it in there. The head construction looks cheap.

OK for travel

It's small enough to pack in suitcase for travel, it's light to carry around. The grip is so-so. However not liking the mount (tiny button install under the camera), especially when you try to shot portrait (sideway) for long exposure. Camera will (rotate) tilt down slowly because of the 'button' design.

I purchased the tripod recently, I really how compact and lightweight it is, but I'm not really a fan of the head that comes with it. It's ok, but I'm planning on purchasing the 3 way head soon. An extra [cost] but it is definitely worth it.

The Manfrotto Compact Tripod Kit was a christmas gift for our son, who was very satisfied with this product. We had no problem with ordering on line and delivery.
