|Manfrotto MT 290 XTC3|
Pros: Price, weight and height from "open"
Cons: Height from closed
Opinion: I own this tripod for almost two years and I can consider myself to be 80% satisfied.rnFaccio only landscape photos so the 5kg maximum capacity - which may seem a few - enough and advance for use in this area.rn1.5 kg I think they are the right compromise of lightness-stability in the event of wind.rnQuality of the materials good.rnI "defects" of this tripod emerge as soon as it is used outside of a "normal" use. I have used it both at low temperatures (about -30 °) and in the marine environment, therefore in contact with salt and sand: in both cases it has performed its function with dignity, even if the closing pliers between the sections tend to freeze in the cold (especially if covered with snow) or stiffen after having immersed it in sea water or after having "leaning" it on the sand. To this I remedied with a nice wash and subsequent lubrication.rnTra sections are not present seals, ergo after using it in the middle of a river or a lake, the inside of the legsIt tends to "fill up" with water, which (most) will come out as soon as the tripod is turned underneath.rnThe large footprint when closed makes this tripod inconvenient to carry in either the suitcase or the outside of the photographic backpack.rnrnAll these defects, if they can be defined in this way, are justified by the price, which is really exceptional in relation to the quality offered.rnrnrn

|Patona Premium LP-E6|
Cons: Poor cold resistance
Opinion: On 6d the battery life is similar to the original only when used with "normal" temperatures (18 ° -22 °). It is used for "cold" and does not last for 20 minutes. "I had an experience where the original it lasted a day of shots at -27 ° while Patona lasted 20 minutes.rnThere is little to do, the quality is paid.
