When we see the description "compact" or "lightweight" relating to a tripod, this very often means a spindly wobble-pod made in China and not fit for purpose. However, with Manfrotto, world leaders in tripod manufacture, this tripod is both compact, lightweight AND rigid when set up.
The three way head has two handles for accurate camera positioning and the legs can be locked into the normal angle or a wide setting. One leg has a rubber grip for easy handling when setting up the legs. The aluminium construction is lightweight for carrying. The quick release plate can be fitted to your camera base to make it ready for instant use.
Minimum height 41.5cm
