The Manfrotto057 Carbon Fiber Tripod with Geared Center Column is a heavy-duty tripod that's intended for use with video cameras and large still cameras. With a 44.1 lb load capacity, the lightweight carbon fiber leg tubes of the 057 tripod provide rigid support even under a considerable amount of weight.
The tripod's geared center column provides maximum precision when you're setting the camera position. The column has a non-rotating, three-faceted design for increased system stability.
The round carbon fiber legs feature user-adjustable flip locks to free and secure the leg stages. An included key for tightening the flip locks attaches to a leg for ready access. With both the legs and the center column fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 61.8".
