Manfrotto Geared Tripod Legs Reviews

Replacement tripod

By Aaron
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-11

I picked up a new 475B tripod along with the matching geared head. It is a replacement for an identical setup that's over 10 years old and has travelled many miles bouncing around in my car or an airplane hold. I shoot architectural assignments and love being able to make critical adjustments down to the millimeter. It has enough height for most work I do and is solid for windy days near the coast. This tripod/head combo is a 10 in my book.

7 years use, love it

I picked one of these up in 2015 to replace my tripod, and while at first I regretted this unit due to the weight - I do a lot of fast paced shooting and carry my gear some pretty long distances to get to my shots - but over a few months of use, the weight came to mean nothing, I got used to the extra weight I was lugging around, and I found that all that weight was perfect for the work I do. I shoot steam engines primarily, and sometimes you find a spot of ground that happens to shake more than other when the several hundred ton engine roars by. This tripod is heavy enough that it reduced the shake in the cameras image in those instances just enough that a shot goes from looking bad and unprofessional, to a shot where the soft more subtle shake can actually make the shot feel like the shake is intended and accents the shot so the shake conveys the size and weight of the engine, without destroying the image or making unwatchable. On occasion I shoot in very crowded photo lines, and this tripod gets low enough I can get below any photo line and squeeze into the front. The feet manage to dig into soft ground well with the screws, and the rubberized covers let it stand stability in studio or on smooth harder surfaces, without damaging what it stands on. I paired mine with the 502AH, and the two are a match made in heaven. The tripod's weight means it's also easier to use the fluid head, as the weight keeps the tripod stationary even at some of the higher tension settings, letting my hands stay off the tripod legs, letting me focus on panning and camera settings. 7 years of use this month. Still loving it, and now looking at buying another as a backup, because while mine still looks and works like new, if something did happen to it I cannot imagine doing a shoot without it, especially now as I transition to professional shooting.

Worth the weight!

Big? Yes. Heavy? Yes. Precise and top quality materials? Yes. Extend to ridiculous height? Yes. It has unique quick adjustments not found on any other tripod, regardless of price. The precision build and weight of this tripod make my 4X5 field camera an unmovable object when mounted to it even on windy days. Highly recommended.

We needed a tripod that was tall and sturdy for weddings. C stands are an option but they're SO heavy. Got this and for the price it's amazing. It's sturdy and easy to set up. Also is tell enough to be able to film over peoples heads during weddings. Definitely recommend.

I love this tripod. It's super sturdy and dependable. I don't mind the weight. My previous tripod was too light and easily tipped. This one stays put and is easily adjustable.

Geared column is great

This is a very nice tripod that I use for a telescope. I bought it to have the flexibility to raise and lower the telescope without adjusting the legs. The object stays in view with a mid-field eyepiece during adjustment. It is exactly what I hoped it to be.

This tripod is not lightweight but I was still able to move it around without much issue. It's sturdy so it can easily withstand bumps from people or crazy kids. I also like the maximum height it can reach. You will feel comfortable leaving your camera on it and walking away.

Great Service & Great Products

I ordered two Manfrotto tripods and was extremely surprised and pleased with the quick response and fast delivery of the products. Also, very happy with the free shipping! The tripods were exactly what I needed. I would recommend B&H to anyone shopping for photo/video/audio products!

I'm confused by the questions regarding a head. I limited my search for tripod LEGS only, not legs AND a head. So does this unit have a head that comes with the tripod legs? or do you buy the head separately? N.b. I don't want the head. Thanks.
Asked by: Breck
Hello, I bought mine a little while ago but I chose the head to go with the legs. It is possible to buy the legs on their own. The product you want is this: 475B Pro Geared Tripod with Geared Column I hope that helps. Best rgds Simon

question

The description says there is an optional ball/pan head. The photo shows a flat head. I want to buy the 502HD 75mm half ball head. Will it fit this tripod? Do I need to buy an optional thingamajig to make it work? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
Being that the 475B has a flat base with a 3/8-16” thread, you would need an adapter such as th ProMediaGear 75mm Bowl Adapter (6"), B&H# PRTRHH2 which will convert the 75mm half bowl connection to the 3/8-16” flat base connection. https://bhpho.to/2k0NW5N

Is theere any information how to remove the head from these legs? I purchased one with the head, but id like to use it for a slider.
Asked by: L Ben
Typically you just unscrew the head from the legs. Make sure the panning lock is tight, then unscrew, there maybe some grub screws below the head platform, in which case the must be backed out in order to remove the head.

Will a DSLR attach to this mount?

Will a DSLR attach to this mount?
Asked by: Lora-Lynn
No, it will not. This tripod has a 3/8"-16 mount, meant for tripod heads rather than for cameras to be mounted directly. We'd recommend an equally heavy-duty tripod head to take full advantage of the Manfrotto Pro Geared 475B tripod's incredible sturdiness. https://bhpho.to/3s72fWO https://bhpho.to/3pJ0V9O

question

After buying this(not yet), what else should I buy to make a whole camera supporting system? The product image shows a big hole in the middle.
Asked by: ZH X.
This is for a tripod only, you will need to add a head to the top. If you are shooting photography the Sirui K-40X Ball Head is a great choice. For Video we suggest the Manfrotto 502AH Pro Video Head with Flat Base. Ball Head - https://bhpho.to/2kFfCZP Fluid Head - https://bhpho.to/2bKwVVJ
