Manfrotto 7301YB-BB M-Y Expert Reviews
Cameralabs reviews the Manfrotto 7301YB-BB M-Y and writes;
“The Manfrotto M-Y 7301YB is a good, solid tripod, which may be classed as entry-level for Manfrotto, but out-classes typical budget models. It’s ideal for anyone with an entry-level DSLR or super-zoom compact who wants an easy-to-use sturdy support without going for the complexity of higher-end models. The build quality is very good for its class with sturdy construction and firm locks. The three-way head feels well-built with relatively smooth motion for video panning, and again secure locking on the three axes and quick-release plate. Overall it feels more confident in use than you’d imagine for an ‘entry-level’ tripod.”

Good starter tripod
“I’ve owned this for a few months, and it is great for what it is. A small tripod for small (rebel size) DSLR. The details and specs are there for you to read. Decide if it is for you, as far as the size, to begin with. Nothing feels cheap as someone else suggested. It is a quality product, just not rated for heavy use. Max weight load = 7.7 pounds. “ – By Stuntman Mike
