This quintessential 3-section 055 aluminum Tripod delivers unprecedented levels of stability and stiffness due to its size, shape and the materials used in its creation. The 90° center column mechanism allows the center column to be extended vertically and horizontally opening up new opportunities in framing and shooting. This Manfrotto tripod sets itself apart from the rest due to its versatility. The horizontal column mechanism is based in the tripod’s top casting and can easily be extended as per requirement. Switching between vertical and horizontal orientation also requires no disassembly and can be done with the camera attached to a tripod, making the life of photographers easier in the process.
