The Manfrotto Heavy Duty Telephoto Lens Support with Quick Release puts the tilt axis (up/down) in line with the midpoint of the lens' weight. This makes movement with a large telephoto lens easy enough to be done with one finger. Point the rig where you want, let go and it stays where you left it. The height of the lens is adjustable and there is a built-in pan base.
The built-in 357 quick release assembly allows fore/aft movement within the mount for perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The 357PL quick release plate includes two 1/4"-20 screws and one 3/8"-16 screw. The support is appropriate for all telephoto lenses with a tripod collar.
