Induro Carbon 8X CT314 User Reviews

excellent tripod to last decades
“I upgraded to what I hope will be the only tripod I use for the next 20 years. It is extremely sturdy and stable, especially for how light it is, and everything about it seems to be the best there is. I wish the leg section releases were quick levers instead of screw-to-tighten grips, but I’ll take it anyway. :)” – By kevwil

my last tripod
“This is an extremely well made and strong tripod. It feels so solid, I wonder if I could stand on it. I love the padded legs, the bubble level, the handy side clip ring, and the spring-loaded hook in the center column.” – By kevwil

Perfect for supertelephoto lenses
“I researched all the high-end carbon fiber tripods and decided on the CT314 based on the tripod specifications, features, other reviews and blog discussions. I needed a sturdy tripod for a Canon 500mm f4L IS USM with Wimberley mount, plus accessories like a wireless remote. I was willing to pay the price for a well engineered CF tripod and I was not disappointed. All the joints/parts fit with close tolerance so it is extremely stable even when the legs and center column are fully extended. If anyone ever invents a tandom Wimberley-type mount this tripod could support twice the weight of my gear. It will easily support the 600mm lens.” – By ez4me2day

Lives up to the claims
“Excellent product,especially for field work where easy set up and portability a must. Great for long lens use when mated with a gimbal head. Tests taken with Nikon D700 & 400mm lens were razor sharp.” – By NEC Photography

“Why did I wait so long to buy a REAL tripod? Because this is it! Very easy to carry, set-up fast and is rock solid. Great tool set with it, and carry bag. I am very happy with this purchase. Less vibration to camera with carbon components. Easily handles my EOS 1d Mark III and long lens..” – By M. Stark
