Lightweight travel tripod

With its sleek Italian design and lightweight build, you’ll want to make this Manfrotto tripod your travel buddy. Strong yet nimble, it makes low angles and tricky positions easy to get to. Easily shift the vertical and horizontal centre column to reposition your camera using just one hand. Power Lock secures the legs in place with solid, non-slip rigidity.


Strong and sturdy carbon fibre legs

The light carbon fibre legs make it easy to carry this tripod around without compromising on its strength. The 100% carbon fibre tubes offer stability and rigidity under any conditions while absorbing vibrations to eliminate distractions. It’s much lighter to carry around than an aluminium frame, making it an excellent choice for travel photographers.

Vertical and horizontal centre column

The multipurpose centre column can be configured vertically or horizontally so you can get closer to your subject for greater detail. The horizontal column is useful for top-down perspectives and more complicated compositions. The macro photographer can shoot with the lens facing completely downwards. And you can adjust the column with the camera securely in place.The bubble level in the centre column helps you to achieve straight positioning and accurate shots.

Attach multiple accessories

When you’re next out on a shoot, you won’t need to worry about bringing so many stands and tripods with you, as you can attach multiple accessories to this Manfrotto tripod. Easily attach LED lights, flashes and reflectors on the Easy Link 3/8” compatible arm.

Lock it in quickly

Have confidence that the Manfrotto tripod legs are locked in place with the Quick Power Lock levers. You’ll know when the locks have closed, with an unmissable audible click. The clips are large and easy to grasp, so extending and closing the tripod legs is easy. With precise positioning and clamps, its secure even on unforgiving surfaces.

Swift leg adjustments

Easily adjust the leg angles with the leg angle selector, which allows you to pre-set angles of 25-, 46-, 66- and 88-degrees independently for each leg. This Manfrotto tripod also extends to a maximum height of 170cm and shrinks to just 9cm, making it very versatile. Get the shots you need with lots of creative options and the ability to shoot from a range of new perspectives.

Load it on

The 9kg load capacity makes it easy for this tripod to hold a wide range of DSLRs, video cameras and lens combinations. Mount a camera such as a Canon 1DX II with a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens with complete ease.

Is it OK to carry my camera on top of the tripod when I’m moving?

While it’s tempting to move your tripod around with the camera locked in place, it’s best to dismount your camera from the tripod when you’re moving around to avoid any damage to your camera.

What do I do about a loose leg?

Fix a leg that’s come loose with an allen or hex key to tighten it back up.

Which tripod head is right for me?

If you do videography, look at a fluid video head. If you do landscape or architecture, look at a 3-way adjustable head. If you travel and need to keep things lightweight and compact, look for a ballhead.

How can I easily balance weight on my tripod?

One way is to use your water bottle as a balancing weight to help hunker down your tripod. Throw the bottle inside a bag with a piece of string attached to loop around the in-built hook on the tripod to keep it as stable as possible, particularly for long-exposure photography.

What other accessories do I need for landscape photography?

Landscape and scenery photographers should consider using various Lee filters to help you achieve the best possible colours and exposure effects on your images.

How can I achieve the best long exposure photography?

Shutter remotes, from inexpensive infrared remotes to advanced intervalometers, are excellent for long exposure photography. By using a shutter remote, you can avoid touching your camera during and just before the exposure begins to ensure you do not create any blurriness in your images through accidental camera shake.

How can I achieve time lapse photography?

For time-lapse photography, attach the Syrp Genie to your tripod which will rotate as it captures multiple exposures. The Genie also produces a great effect for perfectly smooth rotation panning shots for your videography.
