MANFROTTO 718B MINI TRIPOD - PC World or Currys - Clearance £29.98 Instore only

Found 27th May 2008
I got a Manfrotto 718B tripod on sunday which was on discontinuation clearance (note the 98p on the end means discontinued) from Currys. These normally sell for £60-70 online and are really well constructed. You can feel the quality of construction compared to a Hama for example and spares are available.

Mine came with a Manfrotto tripod bag too. It might be difficult to find in some areas.

Before voting cold and saying that you can get a hama tripod from ASDA for a fiver do some research, there is no comparrison.

Manufacturers description: The718B is a compact 4-section tripod with a short folded length. It has a built-in hybrid video/photo 3-way head with a "dovetail" quick release camera plate (can be locked in place one-handed), separate pan and tilt locks, and a short pan/tilt bar for more ergonomic use while panning or tracking moving subjects. The leg pivot system uses a unique single hinge design in aluminium which both keeps the cross section smaller and allows the leg to fold shorter than conventional tripods. Comes complete with a carrying bag with twin shoulder straps for backpack style carrying.…/en

Manfrotto is a great make, and an excellent price. Voted hot :thumbsup:
Can you post the Currys link? PCWorld is sold out here
I couldn't find it on the currys site but I bought mine instore.
the pku code is 890709

if you go into your local store and ask they'll be able to tell you which local stores have it (if any)
Great deal. Manfrotto are excellent tripods, far superior to Hama or other cheap stuff.
Good spot! I just picked one up at Curry's at Furnival Gate, Sheffield. It was marked up at £39.98 but went through the till at £29.98. They had another boxed one left plus the display model.
^^ Excellent, well done in getting one. I got the display model because they could'nt find the boxed one on the system.
