Hey J58

PrimaPhoto is manufactured by Manfrotto and is exactly the same as Manfrotto Element line.

Thanks,
Jacob

The PrimaPhoto Big is closest to the Manfrotto Element Big but with a different head (both companies are under the same parent company - Vitec Group). PrimaPhoto is not a rebranded MeFoto and they are completely different. I did a side by side comparison between PrimaPhoto Big and MeFoto Roadtrip:

Fully extended:
PrimaPhoto Big - 65 inch
MeFoto Roadtrip - 62.5 inch

Folded:
PrimaPhoto Big - 16 inch
MeFoto Roadtrip - 15.5 inch

Head:
PrimaPhoto Big - 3 adjustable knobs
MeFoto Roadtrip - 4 adjustable knobs (2 controlling the mount)

Mount:
PrimaPhoto Big - Does not fit universal ARCA head, 2 level bubbles
MeFoto Roadtrip - Fit universal ARCA head, 1 level bubble

Angle selectors (main locks):
PrimaPhoto Big - auto lock, press to unlock
MeFoto Roadtrip - manual pull and press to lock / unlock

Others:
- When fully extended, the spider (part where all the legs connects to the main Chassis) is around 2 inches taller on PrimaPhoto
- On the MeFoto, all the twist locks rings are wider and uses thicker rubber (easier to grab onto)
- MeFoto is lighter, only by a little
- MeFoto is sturdier (have to do both with shorter height and slightly thicker legs)
- Both carry bags are different

Phew... that's all I can think of. Hope this helps!

Not very many reviews online. Is this just another Chinese copycat? Who owns the company? How does it compare to the MeFOTO Classic Aluminum Roadtrip Travel Tripod?

Is this really a 17lb capacity tripod? Is the load capacity standardized so that it can be trusted? I'm looking for something sturdy to hold a slider with a DSLR on it

Kinda wish this deal was around when I bought my Dolica LA600PRO for $40. It seems like I see the twist-lock type clamps on more expensive models like the one in the OP.

There are a dozen reviews at Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/PrimaPhoto...015RJ0VMU/

Looks exactly like the MeFoto line. Gawrsh, why are there so many product lines that manufacture the same thing ? Nice price though, paid $140 for the MeFoto 3 years ago

Safe to assume this will handle a Panasonic GX85 with 14-140mm lens?
