Manfrotto 458B Neotec Pro Photo Tripod

Fast and easy to use, the 458B has the innovative Neotec rapid opening and closing mechanism. Just pull each leg downwards to open and automatically lock it in any position, without screws, knobs or levers to tighten or loosen. Then to fold it back up again, press the mechanism release button and push the leg closed. Combined with the 458B's high load capacity, great min-max height range and its full range of professional features, this makes it the ideal tripod for location work under pressure. The 458B has a built in carrying handle; a two-section center column for low-angle or normal shooting and four set leg angle positions.

The revolutionary center brace system can be operated in a symmetric or asymmetric way. This allows you to achieve two important results: fast positioning by locking the braces so that all of the legs will spread to the same angle and open instantly, or individual setting of the angle of each leg for the ultimate in tripod flexibility. To avoid annoying 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.

Manfrotto 190XPROB

Manfrotto 190XPROB Black Aluminum Pro Tripod

Intelligently redesigned, the 190XPROB makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature even easier to use. Now, by extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung round to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved.


Manfrotto 190XPROL

Manfrotto 190XPROL Tall Lightweight Aluminum Pro Tripod

The Manfrotto 190XPROL Aluminum Pro Tripod is the tallest tripod in the Manfrotto 190 Series, their most popular tripod range ever. 190s are convenient, relatively compact tripods with a smaller cross-section than Manfrotto professional tripods, but with all the stability, strength and versatile features that demanding photographers need. The 190XPROL's advantage over the rest of the 190 tripods is its greater extended height, which makes photographing at full height more comfortable for taller people and gives more positioning and framing flexibility to all users. The 190XPROL isn't just tall, however: with its independent 4 leg-angle settings, it can be set at any height from more than five feet tall to almost ground level.


Manfrotto 190XB

Manfrotto 190XB Black Aluminum Tripod

The Manfrotto 190XB Aluminum Tripod is built on the same ergonomically improved design as the 190XPROB but without the horizontal center column feature. The 190XB is slightly more compact than the 190XPROB. The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks have been greatly improved. The Manfrotto DISCOVER lightweight tripod range provides the best possible mix of performance and light weight compactness for professional and semiprofessional use.


Manfrotto 055XPROB

Manfrotto 055XPROB Black Pro Camera Tripod

The 055XPROB Pro Tripod replaces Manfrotto's 3021PRO and 3021BPRO Pro Tripods. The 055XPROB makes the famous Manfrotto-patented horizontal center column feature even easier to use. By extending the column to its highest vertical position, it can be swung around to horizontal without removing the head or disassembling the column itself, so switching between framing and positioning setups is more convenient than ever. The ergonomics of the leg angle release mechanism and the quick action leg locks themselves have also been greatly improved.


Manfrotto 055XB

Manfrotto 055XB Black Classic Camera Tripod

The 055XB Tripod replaces Manfrotto's 3021N and 3021BN Classic Tripods. Built on the same ergonomically improved design as the 055XPROB but without the horizontal center column feature, the 055XB is lighter in weight and slightly more compact. The Manfrotto 055XB Black Classic is one of the most versatile and popular tripods in the Manfrotto range.

Manfrotto MT294C3

Manfrotto MT294C3 Large 290 Series Carbon Fiber Tripod

Like the rest of the Manfrotto 290 Series carbon range, the Manfrotto MT294C3 Three-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is built to be transportable without compromising on stability. To achieve this, it uses a next-generation carbon tubing: an innovative composite tube derived from Manfrotto's experience in professional supports with optimized fiber angles that provide consistent advantages over aluminum tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness and stability. 294 tripod legs use a three-section construction with larger-diameter carbon tubing than the 293 models, in order to maximize camera stability and minimize vibration, ideal for zoom lenses that amplify any camera shake. The three-faced column prevents rotation to provide increased accuracy and steadfastness.


Manfrotto MT294A3

Manfrotto MT294A3 Large Three-Section 290 Series Aluminum Tripod

The Manfrotto MT294A3 Three-Section Tripod is the larger tripod of the Manfrotto 290 Series of supports that combines great performance with essential and functional design. The large tubes and the new top casting made with high quality aluminum guarantee great rigidity and light weight. The ergonomic controls are designed for a safer and more enjoyable experience and the anti-shock collar protects your camera from accidental impact. Thanks to the aluminum disc with a 3/8-inch universal attachment and to the embedded features, the MT294A3 tripod is an ideal solution for developing photographers. The three-faced column prevents rotation to provide increased accuracy and steadfastness. The leg locks provide a rock-solid support and with their innovative adjustability they provide consistent excellent performance.
