Manfrotto 475B Overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto 475B Pro Geared Tripod with Geared Column is a workhorse with modernized features, in essence a much improved version of the venerable 3036. It can extend to over 6' tall, and the geared center column cannot lose height accidentally. The 475 maintains stability at all heights, and the innovative leg braces allow for both infinite leg spread & quick setup. A spirit level and convertible rubber/spike feet are included.

To avoid delays in leveling the tripod, the telescopic center braces have been designed with two click stop positions that allow you to easily find the same spread angle on all three legs.

Quick flip locks require only 45° of movement
Bubble level
Click stop detents allow speedy independent leg angle positioning
Geared center column with folding crank

    Manfrotto 475B Reviews

    475B Pro Geared Tripod with Geared Column is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Platform for my APM 100 mm Binoculars I purchased the Manfrotto 475B tripod to use with my APM 100mm binoculars. The binoculars and head weigh more than 18 pounds so I needed a robust stable tripod. The Manfrotto 475B delivers what it promises. The tripod easily supports my binocular setup even with fully extended legs and column. I use the binoculars primarily for astronomical viewing so there is a lot of looking up. The geared column makes very easy to get the binocular eyepieces to a comfortable viewing position for both while seated in my observing chair or standing. The tripod remains stable even while focusing the binoculars which is big plus for me. I would recommend this tripod to anyone who needs a stable platform for big binoculars

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly a beast, but worth it I've owned Manfrotto products for years and have been very happy with them. I recently decided to upgrade my current, smaller, lighter, carbon fiber tripod with something a little more sturdy. I discovered my moon shots, no matter how I shot them, were not crisp and sharp. They were ok.... but ok wasn't getting it. Using Canon's new 50MP 5DS and a 300mm f.28 should have produced some spectacular images. Using the tripod and a wireless remote to fire the camera and locking the mirror up still didn't do it, so I have to surmize the culprit was the tripod. Turns out is was. Now I grant you, the 475B is a beast. It is heavy. It is cumbersome. It is metal. It has no strap and requires two-hands to operate the crank. BUT... it's as rock-solid as a tripod and be, and, although I still use the smaller one for fairly routine stuff, when I want rock solid images from a distance, this is the tripod for the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great legs I use these legs with the 502 video head for shooting still and video with a 5D MkII. The only minor gripe with that set up is the lack of ability to quickly level the camera when changing locations, but it's very minor. These legs are extremely stable and I don't find them too heavy to move around in my orchard photo/video work. I wouldn't want to backpack with them though. They are infinately adjustable and can be locked solidly into any postition including well over my 5' 10 height. The center column remains stabile when raised, even to it's maximum which is ideal in our windy conditions. They just don't get better than these legs for bedrock stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best tripods I have used. This tripod has proven to be sturdy, and flexible in it's use. It is great for everyday use in my field as a multimedia professional who has to remain mobile. It extends to about 7 feet high and works very well for capturing footage that is over looking a subject. Construction is nice and it seems like this unit can take some punishment. Though a bit too heavy for travel in my opinion, it is actually fairly light compared to other tripods in it's class. I would recommend this tripod, and will be purchasing another one shortly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Heavyweight I work in a TV station, and amazingly, this tripod is heavier than the commercial production team's Manfrottos. It's truly a beast, but steady as a rock, and I have little trouble hauling it around using my fluid head handle to carry it. It does clank when you're extending the legs, so not recommended for stealth bird-watching set-ups, but for video purposes it's right on the money. Has the look and feel of something that will last a long time. Only nit to pick is the center column crank handle. You have to two-hand the release while you unfold the handle, and there's lots of spring-loaded resistance. This could have been better designed. Not a big deal. Love the unit, and would definitely recommend to other reasonably strong shooters. Weight could put off some smaller of stature.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely useful I've taught TV Production at a nationally accredited Broadcasting School for 19 years. I bought the 3036 version, and it was great!!! Though at first it can be awkward that the 3 legs move independently, the huge plus here is the extreme heights this tripod can achieve...from 17 low, to way up is a great tool to have students learn with...gave them great'll find it a good investment that will last!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2nd chance I've tried those light weight tripods and don't like them. I've owned a 475B for 5 years and liked it until the levers that tighten the legs began to crack - essentially - destoying their ability to do the job. No problem - I ran the tripod over to a camera repair shop to find out that the replacement parts are no longer available. They have changed the design, hopefully it will be better. Like a succor I bought the new one because I like the other 95% of the tripod and didn't have time to spend hours shopping for something that might be better. It's not light, but if you are not a wimp you can handle it. I've spent hours with my camera on the tripod slung over my shoulder hiking through the woods of Idaho and Utah. It's done a great job for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile tripod I bought this tripod when I had to shoot stained glass windows in a 100+ y/o church for a calendar. I already had a Bogen 3068 that would hold up to 39lbs, but needed something with the additional height. At full extension, this tripod with a 3047 head held a Fuji GW670III rock steady through the exposures needed to capture the image. This and an old Gitzo Reporter now live in my car and are my standard tripods. Heavy, yes, but extremely sturdy. Highly recommended!
