Cullmann Magnesit 525 Aluminum Tripod Legs - Supports 13.2 lbs (6kg)

B&H # CUM525 Mfr # CU 55250
No Longer Available

The Cullmann Magnesit 525 Tripod Legs is an intelligently-designed standard class tripod meant for use with SLR cameras and the typical lenses serious enthusiasts would use, such as a semi-professional SLR with an f/2.8 constant aperture telephoto zoom lens.

The Magnesit 525 reaches a maximum height of just over 5', and thanks to the independent leg spread and 2-part center column it can operate at a very low working height of just over 7".  The 525's crown has a special design which mates with Cullmann's Magnesit Nm series ball heads in a locking, 100% secure fashion.

All Magnesit tripods come with an additional short center column that enables the tripods to be used for extreme macro work, when the short center column is put in " upside-down ", or when the tripod is used at it's lowest position, where the normal center column would hit the ground.

The 525 is named the 'Magnesit' because of its extensive use of magnesium in the casings and fittings.  Magnesium's a light and stable metal, helping to contribute to the quite tolerable weight of under 4 pounds, an excellent number for this class of aluminum-based tripod.

Magnesium and aluminum alloy combination
Foam-padded upper leg segments ease handling in cold and carrying upon shoulder
Individual leg angle locks and detachable center column allow excellent minimum working height
Retractable spikes for use upon soft ground
Weight hook at bottom of center column for aided stability
Crown designed with ridges that perfectly mate to underside of Cullmann's Magnesit ball heads
Maximum upper leg diameter of 25mm
Optional #55398 case accommodates legset with most 3-way heads attached

              Just got it, but it looks like what I wanted.
              Looking forward to see how well it works in the field.
              Better load capacity & features for its size than big name makers AND it's not made in China.

                I love that this tripod is designed for shorter people! I had the Magnesit 528 and never extended the full height because I didn't need it. I 'passed it down' (or up, really) to my 6 ft tall husband and it is perfect for him. The Magnesit 525 is just right for my 5'2"! It is great for getting low down to the ground for macro as well.

                  It´s a very well made tripod, perfect to withstand light and heavyweight equipment. Comes with an additional piece that allows you to leave the tripod at ground level. Totally recommended.. It is a perfect tripod to support light and heavyweight equipment. Comes with an additional piece that allows you to leave the tripod at ground level. Totally recommended.
