Manfrotto Professional Photo Tripod Kits

Video Direct has been an authorized Bogen dealer for many years, and thus also an authorized U.S. retailer for many of the biggest names in the business. These include Manfrotto tripods, which until recently were marketed in the U.S. under the Bogen brand name. If you came here looking for Bogen Tripods, you have come to the right place.

To achieve maximum image sharpness the camera must be set on a sturdy vibration free tripod fluid head offering smooth pan and tilt movements to iron out any jerky camera motion that will mar the recorded image; this unwritten rule applies both to professional and to amateur use.

Manfrotto has a wide range of quality systems for all applications, budgets and camera weights. The video heads they produce offer a variety of technical solutions for camera balancing, drag control, load bearing and tripod mounting.
