This 293 Aluminum Tripod with 494RC2 Ball Head from Manfrotto is a steadfast support for a DSLR or other camera up to 8.8 lb. It has aluminum leg tubes and top casting, a maximum height of 62", and it folds down to 25.3" for easy storage and transport. Its legs can be spread independently and locked at two different positions (23° and 51°). An anti-shock collar protects your camera from accidental impact.
The included ball head has a quick-release plate, a friction control knob that allows micro movements without engaging the head-locking mechanism, and a locking mechanism that will lock the head in both the +90°/-90° tilt position and the 360° panning position.
