Upper Saddle River, N.J. (August 20, 2014) – Manfrotto, a leading global innovator and manufacturer of premium photo, video, and lighting support products and accessories, has unveiled its new 535 Aluminum Single Leg Tripod (MVT535AQ). Sturdy, reliable, compact, and incredibly easy-to-use, the new 535 aluminum tripod is the perfect camera support solution to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s videographer. Also introduced to the 535 series is the MVT535HH, an aluminum Hi-Hat tripod for low-level or ground shooting, slider support and table-top applications. 

Compared to its carbon fiber counterpart, the MVT535AQ features an additional 4th leg section, which allows the tripod to be even more compact and transportable. While more compact, the 535 aluminum tripod maintains the same maximum operating height of 67.3 inches and thanks to its leg angle selector (23°, 50°, 70°), users can adjust from eye-level to ground, with a minimum height of 8.9 inches.

A true workhorse, the new 535 can support a maximum load of 44 pounds, ensuring the accommodation of popular HDSLRs and standard video cameras rigged and outfitted with commonly used accessories. Users will also be able to use the new 535 with a number of video heads as the tripod comes with a 75mm half-bowl and Manfrotto’s MVA060T adapter, which conveniently converts the bowl down to 60mm.

Manfrotto’s new 535 Aluminum Single Leg Tripod (MVT535AQ) is available for $367.00 and the MVT535HH is available for $267.00.  Kits are also available that pair the MVT535AQ with a Manfrotto Bridging Technology  500, 502 or 504 Pro Video Head and bag:
