Hi Guys,

Update: I've spoke to Manfrotto who have apologised for the delay and the tripods will be with you as soon as possible.

Cheers,

Nik.

I did think it was very unlike them to taking so long.

Well the tripod arrived today, but no head! I don't want to sound like I'm being ungrateful because I'm certainly not, just a little disappointed as the picture shows a tripod and head! Is this correct? Am I being too demanding?? Assumption really is the mother of all f*** ups...

Exactly the same here, Massive box with the tripod box inside and no HEAD!!!!

Maybe it's coming separately!?!?!?!?

I doubt it very much Steven, my feeling is ''that's all folks''..... I feel so ungrateful though by saying all this! I would love to be proven wrong....

Great to be one of the winners, received my prize yesterday and I couldn't believe it. There is no head with mine either, is this correct.....

My wife has just said the perfect thing.

Trades descriptions breach! They have advertised a tripod with a head and sent out one without, they have not provided what they said they would. I don't recall seeing anything saying there would not be a head!

I'm sure they will do the right thing here!

Indeed I have been thinking exactly the same thing. I did have a look at the original competition notice and there was no mention of the fact that it would be a tripod only, no head included, so ones expectation would be that it would be the whole shebang! I too would expect that they (Manfrotto? as they are providing the prize/images) would do the right thing in this situation.....

Well, it seems like EPZ or manfrotto don't want to be drawn into this one, anyone else any thoughts??

Sorry I didn't respond straight away, I wasn't online last night.

I'm checking with Manfrotto this morning about the prize details so will confirm once I have received a response.

Hi guys,

I spoke to Manfrotto and the prize is a tripod (no head). I've taken a look at the competition's Ts&Cs and it did say: 'MT294C3 carbon fibre tripod'.

Thanks,

Nik.

I think this is wholly unacceptable. We need to see these Ts & Cs for ourselves. Do they say "Head not included"? If not then as the picture suggests there should be one included.

Bad press can be very damaging to a company with such a good reputation as yours and Manfrotto's. It would be very little cost to them to do the right thing.

C'mon guys get this sorted the right way.

"Manfrotto is giving away four 290 Series carbon fibre tripods each worth 215!" as the original headline went. If this is checked out on various selling sites then these include a 3 way head for this price; the image in the competition shows a 3 way head, surely the prize would include a 3 way head...? The original competition certainly didn't say "head not included"

Hi guys,

Even though the competition's Ts&Cs did say a 'MT294C3 carbon fibre tripod' was the prize (which doesn't include a head) as a gesture of goodwill on this occasion Manfrotto are kindly going to supply the heads to the four winners. As it was not stated that a head would be included they are under no obligation to do so and ePHOTOzine would like to thank Manfrotto for sending the heads out.

Manfrotto has asked we apologise on their behalf for any confusion that may have been caused with the image that was used and the heads should reach you all next week.

I am glad to hear that the right thing has been on this matter.

Many thanks to ePHOTOzine and Manfrotto for sorting this out.

Thank you guys for doing this. I realise this makes us look like ungrateful winners of a prize but the was an element of disappointment when the original box was delivered.

Onwards and into the next chapter and looking forward to using the tripod!!
