Manfrotto XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head with 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate

This XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head from Manfrotto has a load capacity of 8.8 lb and can be attached to tripods or other support systems that feature a 3/8"-16 mount. It includes an integrated RC2 quick release cam lock and a 200PL-14 Quick Release Plate. RC2 compatible quick release plates such as the 200PL-14 can be removed from the head by pulling the cam lock's spring-loaded lever, which also allows the plate to be quickly reattached. The cam lock also features a safety catch to prevent the 200PL-14, or another compatible quick release plate from accidentally disconnecting.

Cameras, sport optics, or camcorders that are compatible with a 1/4"-20 mount can be connected to the quick release plate before securing it to the pan-and-tilt head. The head can be rotated 360°, tilted 90° forwards or 20° backwards, as well as 90° sideways for portrait orientation. Each of these three movements function independently of each other and have individual, spring-clamp controls. Squeezing each clamp's two handles allows the corresponding movement to be rapidly adjusted, and once the handles are released, the adjustment is locked into place. One handle on each clamp is also an integrated twist knob that allows incremental, geared adjustments, which help to ensure that any device mounted to this XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head is precisely positioned relative to the subject.

To further promote fast and repeatable device positioning, this XPRO 3-Way, Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head also includes dedicated angle scales for each movement that are designed for easy visibility.

028B Triman Camera Tripod with Geared Center Column & XPRO Geared 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head Kit Reviews

Manfrotto is the best

By Brant
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-15

I've bought this to replace my old Manfrotto that I've had for over 20 years. I like the strength, weight and versatility of these legs.

Big, heavy & tall--exactly what I wanted

By Matthew
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-01-05

This thing is a beast to carry around, but it's exactly what I wanted. I have a Sony 1 pro camcorder--something far smaller than this tripod's payload capacity--which I often use for shooting community events or small performances where there's no dedicated elevated perch for a camcorder. This was my solution for a stable tripod that ensures that I can always shoot over the heads of any crowd and never have a person walking into my shot. It's almost always easier to bring a small step stool and this tripod than to try elevating the camera and the operator.

Beastly heavy, but excellent for elevated shooting

By Matthew
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-10-10

I shoot several events per year where I don't have the time, space, or budget to do an elevated video platform. This tripod makes it super-easy to position the camcorder above adult height to shoot over a crowd at seminars and other events where an elevated shooting position is the only way to keep a clear line of sight. So instead of an expensive elevated camera platform, this plus a small step stool will accomplish the same thing quickly, easily, and inexpensively.

Very Sturdy

Don't Hesitate

Just buy it. If you re looking for a failsafe tripod that you can walk away from and know it's not going anywhere, then this is the one for you. I use with ball-heads & gimbals to hold my heavy telephoto setup and it works like a champ. If you are buying a tripod like this, you shouldn't be worried about the weight. It's not heavy for me, maybe for some. I take it everywhere for the reason that it's hefty and know it will suite me needs for fieldwork shooting wildlife.

A need

By Matt

Date: 2020-11-05

You need this if you are filming, don't put a nice camera on an inferior tripod. It's irresponsible. This thing is sturdy and gives me room to grow. Makes my life incredibly easy and I'd recommend this to anyone. Only thing that makes me upset is that it doesn't come with the head piece so make sure that you buy that so you can connect your camera.

Great deal

question

What would I need to take my 503 head off one of my other tripods and mount it on this one? Is that possible? If not, what's a good fluid head I could mount on this tripod?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are a few different 503 heads. One is just called 503 and that attaches with just a 3/8 connection like the tripod you mentioned. You just unscrew the head from your other tripod and attach this to the 028B Studio Pro Triman Tripod Legs.Now if you have the 503 HDV, that uses a 75mm flat top and then that will not fit on the 028B.If you then do need a different head these are a few different ones.
