Robus RC-5570 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-5570 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 a maximum extension 70.1", 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 4". 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-5570's maximum height to 84.9".

A quarter turn of the tripod's twist-locks retracts the 4-section legs to a reasonable folded length of 25.4". 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 84" reach, a 55 lb weight capacity, and a folded length of less than 26", the tripod's notable stability and performance-based features ensure its place as a favorite go-to-support solution for professionals and dedicated enthusiasts.

Interchangeable Top Plates

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 answer to this challenge is to get an L-Bracket for your D5. With the L-Bracket and the BH 55, it will be easier, quicker and give you more flexibility to place your camera in the vertical position or any position for that matter.
