This 294 Aluminum Tripod with 496RC2 QR Ball Head from Manfrotto extends from 19.6" to a maximum height of 70.5". It has a load capacity of 11 lb and weighs 5.1 lb. The three-section legs can be independently adjusted in height and held in place with their flip locks. An anti-shock collar protects your camera if the column retracts too quickly.

The built-in 496RC2 ball head has a single locking know that allows you to easily adjust the camera's location, and two 90° notches let you quickly move from portrait to landscape orientation. The head also has a friction knob to fine-tune the movement of the ball. A quick-release plate is included with the head.
