Manfrotton carbon tripods...durable ??greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Do any of you have used intensively Manfrotto carbon tripods to know if they worth the investment ? If they are much lighter, does it mean they would have less stability ?

Bruce, I've had one for about 2 years now and have used it mostly on location shooting and it has held up well. I think it was one of the better investments I made as for as usefulness goes. And, yes they are delightfully light. :o) Doug

Bruce, Having used a Manfrotto 441 carbon tripod for my 4x5 work (Ebony SW45) I find it sufficiently sturdy for LF work. Its light weight is a great bonus. Proving you don't exceed the manufactuers max. load recommendations such tripods are fine for LF photography. Regards,
