The Manfrotto 057 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod w/ Geared Column is a heavy-duty tripod that's intended for use with video cameras and large still cameras. With a 26.5 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 geared center column provides maximum precision when you're setting the camera position. The column has a non-rotating, three-faceted design for increased system stability. 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) to enable extremely low-angle shooting. With this method the 057 tripod can achieve a minimum height of 8.7".

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 61.8".

Key Features

  • Retractable spikes in feet
  • Bubble level near bottom of center column
  • Screw locks for tightening a tripod head to the center-post collar
  • Manfrotto suggests its 114 Video/Movie Heavy Dolly for this tripod
