The Manfrotto057 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Geared Center 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.

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 ready access. With both the legs and the center column fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 61.8".

      Comments about Manfrotto MT057C3-G 057 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Geared Center Column:

      I now have two of these for my time-lapse rig. And they are just the right combination of sturdy, simplicity to use, and light weight. Well, relatively light-weight, since this is a big tripod.

      It's so good, that I sold another tripod to buy a 2nd one of these.

      Unlike Bono, I now have found what I am looking for - a perfect tripod for my needs.

        Comments about Manfrotto MT057C3-G 057 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Geared Center Column:

        I have great views from my condo of Lake Michigan and Chicago; as such always have cameras ready to go mounted on tripods. This model is very sturdy and great for big zooms. So now I have two of them and a smaller 190xprob all Manfrotto.
