Thoughts on Manfrotto Compact advanced aluminium tripod

Does anyone have any thoughts to share on the Manfrotto Compact Advanced Aluminium Tripod with 3-way Head MKCOMPACTADV-BK? I am looking into buying it for fashion and travel photoshoots and would love to know if anyone has any experience using it. Cheers!

Manfrotto makes some good tripods.  I just don't care for aluminum.   Honestly speaking if I were to go with aluminum I would spend a few more bucks and go with something like:  www.adorama.com/mfbpsared.html?gclid=EAI...vEAQYBCABEgJbdvD_BwE

I'm not feel that head at all.  Manfrotto makes some good tripods for the money.  Not the best, but good.  Ditch that head and this one isn't to bad.

For the price, it's 'OK' at best.  I would save up and try to invest into a tripod that is $200 to $300.  You'll get something of noticeable quality increase that will last much longer and perform better.

Agreed. I was thinking of getting one of the higher end manfrottos. If i am going to be spending the money, might as well get a good tripod
