The Bogen/Manfrotto 3251 Tripod is a professional tripod for medium format and 4x5" cameras. Automatic simultaneous or individual leg release system permits the legs to be extended and the tripod leveled (spirit level included) and locked in seconds without the need for individual leg adjustments. Retractable rubber/spiked feet are standard. The geared center column has a non-roll back feature.
The Bogen/Manfrotto 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head is the redesigned model in the 3-way range of heads. The 808RC4 now also includes the Double Axis Spring System which consists of a built-in 3.3 lb spring for both the front tilt and side tilt movements.
This innovative solution, borrowed from the video industry, helps to move the camera smoothly while framing the picture, as it helps to balance some of the camera weight. In addition, it absorbs the shock to bodies and lenses when reaching the end stop of the head movement.
