Thread: Ningbo Fancier Carbon Fiber Tripod

    Default Ningbo Fancier Carbon Fiber Tripod

    I got this sweet deal at CP over the weekend. Paid 140 for it.
    Does not seem to be flawed in anyway. So light!!
    Picture below is with the head (not sold with tripod). Anyone else used this before?

    I got it too. Was going to get the Manfrotto 190pro... but dun like the weight....

    I tried out both tripod.... surprisingly it is more stable than the 190pro.

    Got a manfrotto 486 RC2 ball head.

    Light and very stable!

    Can't get any better for the money I paid and I found the quality to be good. I've been using it quite a bit this past week and have no problems with it so far. The green carrying case could be a little nicer though...
    I got a Manfrotto 322RC2 for the head.

    Yeah, I got the same tripod at CP too! I was about to leave when my colleague pointed out another CF tripod ... and Chris said that if I didn't care about brands, this is a super buy at $14x .... unfortunately, the carry case doesn't really look really nice, but at that price, one shouldn't be too fussy eh?

    I nearly bought this same tripod at AP earlier at its original $300+/- price. Sure glad I waited and got a much better deal.

    The only complaint I have is the rubber cap on the legs... u may lost it if u r not careful enough... but again it is the cap that make it more stable..
