The Manfrotto 057 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod w/ Rapid Center Column is a heavy-duty tripod that's intended for use with video cameras and large still cameras. With a 39.7 lb load capacity, the lightweight carbon fiber leg tubes of the 057 tripod provide rigid support even under a considerable amount of weight.
The tripod's rapid center column has a non-rotating, three-faceted design for increased system stability. To enable extremely low-angle shooting, you can unscrew the center-post collar, remove the center column, and attach the collar directly to the included low-angle adapter (through the chassis). With this method the 057 tripod can achieve a minimum height of 9.1".
The round carbon fiber legs feature user-adjustable flip locks to free and secure the leg stages. An included key for tightening the flip locks attaches to a leg for ever-ready access. With both the legs and the center column fully extended, the tripod reaches an extremely tall maximum height of 80.7".
- Retractable spikes in feet
- Bubble level near bottom of center column
- Screw locks for tightening a tripod head to the center-post collar
- Aluminum column + magnesium. Aluminum castings
