  • Robus RC-5558 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod

    When your career depends on that next shot, you need a tripod that's much more than just three legs to stand on. Meeting and succeeding that need, we have the RC-5558 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod, one of a series of tripods from Robus that delivers performance to satiate the most demanding image-makers, regardless of the conditions or terrain in the field. The 10x carbon fiber legs feature wide, stable leg tube diameters. Even at maximum extension of 58.5", these substantial cylinders combine with the tripod's anodized CNC-machined spider to support video or still camera rigs weighing up to 55 lb.

    Shooting outdoors can definitely be a challenge, especially when doing macro or close up photography on the ground. But with three variable leg angles of 25, 55, and 85°, plus independent leg spread, the tripod can be splayed out to a minimum height of just 3.7". The tripod's central spider features a lock to loosen the yoke and a safety pull latch that releases the finely machined top plate. This permits interchangeability with the included 75mm video bowl. There's also an optional center column available that extends the RC-5558's maximum height of 73.25".

    A quarter turn of the tripod's twist-locks retracts the 4-section legs to a reasonable folded length of 22.5". Two of the legs have tactile rubber grips that ensure a secure hold as you carry the support from one place to another. Additionally, a 3/8"-16 socket at the end of each leg allows you to swap out the standard feet for the included spikes or wide rubber feet to accommodate different terrains and surfaces.

    With a possible 73" reach, a 55 lb weight capacity, and a folded length of less than 23", the tripod's notable stability and performance-based features ensure its place as a favorite go-to-support solution for professionals and dedicated enthusiasts.

    10x Carbon Fiber Legs
    Provides stability and dampen vibrations, which would cause shake in the camera.
    CNC-Machined Aluminum Spider
    The CNC-machined spider features a lock to loosen the yoke and a safety pull latch that releases the top plate, which has a counterweight hook on the bottom. The anodized spider also features a strap mount and an integrated bubble level that ensures your horizons are always leveled.
    Interchangeable Top Plates
    A finely machined top plate features a smooth anodized finish, a chamfered leading edge for ease of installation, and a 3/8"-16 threaded head mount. The 75mm bowl is interchangeable with the top plate and mounts into the spider in the same fashion. There's also an optional center column available that extends the RC-5558's maximum height to 73.25".
    All Surface Capable
    Accommodate different terrains and surfaces via the three different sets of feet. The standard rubber feet, wide rubber feet, and spikes are all interchangeable via the 3/8"-16 socket at the end of each leg.
    Variable Leg Angles
    Three variable leg angles of 25, 55, and 85° with independent leg spread accommodate uneven terrain, and allow you to shoot at a minimum height of 3.7".
    Twist Leg Locks
    Twist Locks that open with a quarter turn to extend to a maximum height of 58.5" or collapse the 4-sections of the leg in a quick and timely manner.
    Tactile and Comfortable Rubber Leg Grips
    Heavyweight rubber sleeves on two legs provide a secure, comfortable and balanced grip under any weather conditions.
