When maximum stability for a high-load capacity and exceptional stability even at maximum height are require, the RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod, one of a series of tripods from Robus delivers performance to satisfy even the most demanding image-makers.
Robust Construction
  • Regardless of the conditions or terrain in the field Vantage-series tripods boast features that will benefit pros and amateurs alike, both in the studio and on location. RC-5570 extends to over 70 inches high, and will comfortably support up to 55 pounds of gear.
  • Heavyweight rubber sleeves on two legs provide a secure, comfortable and balanced grip under any weather conditions.
  • Designed and built to operate in the harshest of environments, Vantage series tripods stand up to daily use and abuse, providing reliable performance. Made of premium materials, they resist corrosion and grime that would cause other tripods to fail.
Carbon Fiber Legs and Twist Lock Leg Joints
  • At the heart of Robus tripods are the extremely sturdy 10× carbon-fiber tubes that provides a maximum load of 55 pounds, which is enough to support a heavy camera setup with a level of stability that dampens vibrations to reduce camera shake.
  • Large, ergonomic twist lock joints open with a quarter turn to extend to a maximum height of 70.1" or collapse the leg sections quickly.
Aluminum Spider and Interchangeable Top Plates
  • The CNC-machined spider features a lock to loosen the yoke, and a safety pull latch to release the top plate. The anodized spider also features a strap mount and an integrated bubble level for precise leveling.
  • A precision-machined top plate features a smooth anodized finish, a chamfered leading edge for ease of installation, and a 3/8"-16 threaded head mount. It includes a ballast hook to add a stabilizing counterweight in windy conditions, or when working with a top-heavy load.
  • The 75mm bowl is interchangeable with the top plate and mounts into the spider using the same safety pull latch release mechanism, making it possible to change from shooting still to video in just seconds.
All Surface Capable, Multiple Locking Leg Angles
  • Three variable leg angles of 25, 55, and 85° with independent leg spread accommodates uneven terrain, and allows you to shoot at a minimum height of 4".
  • Three different sets of feet are available to accommodate different terrains and surfaces. The standard rubber feet, wide rubber feet, and spikes are all interchangeable via the 3/8"-16 socket at the end of each leg.

Robus Vantage Series Tripod Legs Reviews

Robust, Sturdy

By R
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-30

As a newcomer to heavy duty tripods I combined it with the Wimberly WH-200 Gimbal and I'm pleased. Only complaint is a couple of the rubber sleeves that wrap around lock joints for leg extension were installed poorly and I had to spend some time moving them into place. It's a quality product and heavy duty.

Twice as good; half the price

I am absolutely elated. This is solid. I love the leg extension collars -- quick, easy, and no guessing. I think I could park my car on this tripod. And it is only half the price of some other brand names that brag about and charge too much for their tripods. I don't ever want to use a center column again. I am captivated.

It does the job and does it very well! Great height and confident structure. It's large enough to support big gear steadily; it holds roughly 10lbs for me regularly. Very smooth adjustments to the legs on all aspects as well. Being carbon fiber, its weight is more than manageable when attached to a pack for hiking into remote areas.

One for the tall people.

I had been on the hunt for a good quality tripod for some time which would not have a center column, and still fit my height well. I am 185cm tall or just about 61 and then even this tripod, fully extended get a tad too high when have my camera on top. I am using Acratech ballhead. I just lower the tripod just a bit and just think its nice that I can add some extra height if I feel I need it. Got this tripod few months ago and it feels very strong and robust. Very sturdy. I use it also with my Promediagear Katana jr. gimbal head and have then my Sigma 500mm f/4 lens on and it feels lightweight for this tripod. Sure he has some weight this tripod but nothing I will complain about. I have hiked all over with this thing and it doesnt bother me at all. If you want tall and sturdy, then you should be aware it is going to be few grams heavier than smaller tripods. It comes with beautiful well made bag and you get these extra feet too attach for different terrains you might find yourself in. I am loving my Robus RC-8860 and do believe we will be a great team for the coming years.

Best tripod ever

I have had many tripods throughout my career, and this one by far coupled with the manfrotto head is the best I have had, the height on this is INCREDIBLE. Love it

great tripod!

sturdy tripod, steady in windy conditions. Relatively light weight. Excellent stability due to having adequate height without the need for a center column. good quality at a good price.

Just wow!

I've had a few cheaper tripods because I didn't know any better. I started looking into higher end tripods and came across this tripod. The features checked every box I was looking for. At least 6', carbon fiber, and no center column. Oh and under $500. B&H had this on sale for just under $500. The reviews convinced me tripod could easily retail for $700 and still be priced fairly. So I went for it. I wasn't sure if a tripod could possibly be that much better than my $160 tripod. Now I know, I had no idea what ai was missing. The build quality can't be fully understood by the spec sheet. It even had the same smell as a fresh brand new pair of Nikes. I wish I had skipped my 2 cheaper tripods and went straight for this one.

Do I need to purchase a center column or can I mount my ball head directly to the legs? Thanks.
Asked by: B
A center column is not needed but the column would make it easier/faster to raise and lower the camera height. This would be the optional center column: https://bhpho.to/3BJzGRQ. The BH-55 head can be attached to both the tripod or the optional center column.

One of the reviewers, Shawn, stated, "Had to order the center column later as I could not rotate my camera to vertical in my BH 55 because it would hit the sides of the tripod." He doesn't say what camera he's using. Has anyone using a Nikon D810 in conjunction with the Robus RC-5570 had this problem?
Asked by: James H
The easiest solution would be to get a dedicated L-Bracket for your D810 and you shouldn't have any issues.
