Rugged, tough and strong, the Studio Tripod range is ideal for studio or indoor applications and has been developed to stabilize the extra loads associated with large format cameras and lenses. Each tripod of the family has a center column made of a “non-rollback” tube controlled by a gear mechanism. The top spider is a reinforced die casting aluminum and the legs are stabilized by an adjustable mid level spreader. The tripods offer different technologies for the locking system which can be the traditional locking knob, the quick action levers or the time tested automatic leg lock and release system used on the Triaut. With a wide range of size and weight the Manfrotto’s Studio family meet the needs of all the professional photographers.
