In addition, a screw-in 75/100mm. adaptor to hold the different industry standard half-ball heads.
Manfrotto's carbon fiber tubing is popular among outdoor photographers because it's light in weight, but not everyone knows it's also more rigid and supports heavier loads than aluminum - giving it a double advantage.
Retractable spiked feet mean you can use this both outdoors (with the spike extended for better grip on soft terrain, moss, plants, etc) and indoors on delicate floor surfaces (with the rubber foot covering the spike to avoid damage and give more stable non-slip support).
Ergonomic and easy to use. Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength.
Lightweight magnesium is used for die-cast parts. Magnesium has a density of 1.74g/cm3 as opposed to aluminum's 2.70g/cm3 - a 35% reduction. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.
This tripod features a newly designed ergonomic leg angle selector. This new angle selector improves the comfort and the precision in use.
Manfrotto tubes are made of 100% Carbon Fiber in order to reach high quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity and lightness. Carbon fiber tubes can be very different in quality, depending on the production process and the percent of carbon fiber material present in the tubes. Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fiber and the pull winding technology (a special production process able to maximize performance, resistance and reliability).
