This system permits the legs to be extended and the tripod leveled and locked in seconds without the need for individual leg adjustments. Telescoping the legs is achieved by activating the same release.

Mid-Level Spreader

The built-in mid-level spreader adds anti-torsional rigidity and stops the tripod legs from accidentally being knocked wider apart. Compared to a ground-level spreader or dolly, the mid-level spreader has the advantage that it stays well out of the mud and dirt and is more suitable for use on uneven terrain

Geared Center Column

The geared center column has a non-roll back feature, and allows for safe and precise height adjustments

Set Screws

The three set screws in the camera platform can be used to permanently secure the head to the tripod, providing additional security

Foldaway Handle

Its foldaway handle avoids damage during transport

Manfrotto Geared Tripod Legs Reviews

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.

Easy to use, sturdy design

I've used this model for the past 4 years for corporate recording events and is very easy to set up. The frame is very sturdy, easy to adjust for different heights and angles. Legs are fully adjustable for uneven flooring.

Very sturdy

I purchased this as a support for a laser measurement tool. Weight capacity and stability are very important. This is a companion to a 161MK2B I own. I added a 273 survey adapter which gives me a 5/8-11 mount which I need. Very pleased. I will use it for the first time next week.

Rock Solid Professional Tripod

By Barrie
Rated 5 out of 5

I have just purchased a second of these tripods after using one for 25 years. The great dilemma of tripods is all the advice is to get a light one that is easily carried. The problem is that light tripods are probably less useful and less stable than a bag of rice and a nearby rock or fence. I have used this tripod on location in China although I was only carrying from a van to the location and not hauling it up the side of a mountain. It is more than a studio tripod although the studio will probably be where it is used most ( there are better even more solid studio alternatives that give immediate access to whatever height you want). This is a workhorse of a tripod that will not let you down and let’s you set up and change height etc very quickly. The only camera support faster would be a Titan style column mount and that baby doesn’t get carried anywhere!

The best quality you can buy

I'm on my second one. �I shoot over 50,000 photos a year. �The first one lasted over 10 years. �The functions are buttery smooth and I expect this one to last a long time as well. �It is heavy though. �I would only recommend this for a studio.

It is exaclty what I wanted in a tripod.

The ease and speed of setup is what I rely most on. I take it to a location and am ready to shoot in seconds.

Heavy Duty

This tripod is so solid. But very heavy. In studio only. I could never lug this around on location shooting. I still have to get use to the leg levers but with practice should become extremely fast to change setups. Gets really tall as well as much lower than my other tripods. Overall I am pleased with the purchase.

Just OK for overhead shots

By Barbara

I purchased this tripod based on the recommendations of other product photographers. I currently use a Manfrotto 055CXPro3 (68 inches fully extended) for my straight-on and 45 degree tabletop product photography. For overhead product shots I use a C-stand. I was hoping to replace the C-stand with the 058B tripod by shooting my straight-on shots and then quickly convert to an overhead set up with the Manfrotto 131DB arm and vice versa. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. The 058B tripod with extendable legs (54 inches) and fully extended center column (11 inches) gives you a respectable 65 inches. The additional 20 inches comes from the lower legs. However, while they are somewhat easy to extend - unscrew and pull, they are quite impossible to retract (you need to screw them into the outer leg which takes an ungodly amount of time and real effort). So there is nothing fast and easy about getting the extra length unless you want to leave it set up in the studio. I don't understand why Manfrotto didn't employ the quick release clips like in their other tripods. The other comment I have is that if you think you need the extra length from the lower legs for your shoot better do it before you attach your camera and tripod head otherwise you'll need to disassemble everything to extend those lower legs (to make it lighter and less clumsy to handle). In the straight-on shooting position the quick set up of the extendable legs with the ability to extend one leg at a time to level the tripod is a blessing as is the gear-controlled center column. As a result I will be retiring my 055CXPro3 in favor of the 058B but only for those straight-on and 45 degree shots. And for now I'll be sticking with my C-stand for overhead shots.

I purchased a Manfrotto 058B from someplace online ages ago however at the time, I didn't even realise that I needed another attachement to be able to fit my camera to it...I have a Canon Eos 6D... Can you recommend something to attach my camera to the tripod please?
Asked by: Chris
Yes, you will need a tripod head, I would recommend the Manfrotto pan tilt head, click the link below to view; https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1034870-REG/manfrotto_mhxpro_3w_3_way_pan_tilt_head.html

question

Is there any differences between the 058B and Art. 058
Asked by: Agustin M.
If they are from the same generation, then the only difference between the 058 and the 058B is the color. The B at the end designates the black version, while without the B means its the silver color.
