Manfrotto Pro Video 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.

Manfrotto Video Tripods

Manfrotto 528XB

Manfrotto 528XB Video/Movie Heavy-Duty Tripod

The 528XB is the ideal location tripod, with a massive 66-pound load capacity. It is a sturdy single-stage tripod with a single-tube leg structure. Tubes are made of stainless steel for strength under heavy loads, and aluminum to decrease weight. The leg spread is fully adjustable, but also incorporates a 30° locked position for faster set up and greater strength. The 528XB includes a versatile mid-level spreader, which has telescopic "ratchet" braces that click into place in each of the preset positions for faster deployment. Each brace can be individually set, allowing each tripod leg to be separately positioned. The 528XB is the ideal choice for supporting camera jib arms.


Manfrotto 536

Manfrotto 536 MPRO Four-Section Carbon Fiber Video Tripod

The Manfrotto MPRO 536 Video Tripod is manufactured with the world's most advanced high-performance materials: 100% carbon fiber tubes and magnesium die castings. Manfrotto technology produces an ergonomic, user-friendly video tripod that is incredibly lightweight yet stable, compact, versatile and easy to use. The MPRO 536 boasts a robust load capacity of 55 pounds and a maximum height of more than 6.5 feet. Four leg sections allow the MRO 536 to fold down to a closed length of under 28 inches. With the MPRO's single tube design, new leg angle selectors, improved quick-action leg locks and retractable spiked feet, the versatile MPRO 536 is easy to use whether shooting inside or outdoors.


Manfrotto 546GBK

Manfrotto 546GBK Two-Stage Lightweight Black Pro Video Tripod With Ground Level Spreader and 75mm Bowl

The 546GBK two-stage, lightweight, high tensile aluminum tripod is extremely rigid and stable, able to carry loads up to 44.1 pounds (20kg). The 546GBK has a die-cast aluminum crown with a built-in 75mm interface bowl and adjustable leg lock levers for reliability and safety in the field. The tripod's telescopic ground-level spreader helps set leg angles accurately and improves rigidity. Spiked feet with rubber overshoes are provided for solid grounding on both uneven terrain and smooth floors. The 546GBK tripod can be used with various dollies. A version of this tripod with a mid-level spreader, the Manfrotto 546B, is also available.


Manfrotto 755CX3

Manfrotto 755CX3 Carbon Fiber MDeVe Tripod

Replacing the popular Manfrotto 755MF3 Tripod, the Manfrotto 755CX3 Carbon Fiber MDeVe Tripod tripod features a perfect combination of low weight and high load capacity materials and provides high performance with an extremely compact and lightweight structure. The 755CX3 has an aluminum center column, carbon fiber legs and castings of magnesium and aluminum. It is a two-stage tripod supplied with quick release leg locking levers, asymmetric leg angle presets and, most significantly, Manfrotto's patent-pending, rapid center column with built-in leveling half ball. The fact that the 50mm diameter ball with bubble spirit level is attached not to the tripod top spider but to the top of the center column allows you to level the top plate (and consequently the head and camera) and even adjust the camera height without needing to make micro adjustments to the tripod legs, representing timesaving and added convenience.


Manfrotto 545B

Manfrotto 545B Lightweight Black Video Tripod With Mid-Level Spreader and 100mm Bowl

Replacing the Manfrotto 515MVB tripod, the 545B two stage, lightweight, high tensile aluminum tripod is extremely rigid and stable. Thanks to improved upper and lower collars, the tripod has greater torsion rigidity and payload (55 pounds), improving the overall shooting performance. The collars have also been redesigned to be aligned with the new range of single tube tripods. The 545B has a die-cast aluminum shoulder with a built-in 100mm interface bowl, adjustable leg lock levers for reliability and safety in the field and an innovative mid-level spreader which aids in tripod leg angle setting. The 100mm interface bowl can be adapted to a 75mm interface via an optional accessory. The lowest leg section has twin spiked metal feet. The 545B comes with quick on-off rubber shoes for better grip on smooth floors.


Manfrotto 545GB

Manfrotto 545GB Lightweight Black Video Tripod With Floor-Level Spreader and 100mm Bowl

The Manfrotto 545GB two stage, lightweight, high tensile aluminum tripod is the floor-level spreader version of the 545B, above. Thanks to improved upper and lower collars, the tripod has greater torsion rigidity and payload (55 pounds), improving the overall shooting performance. The collars have also been redesigned to be aligned with the new range of single tube tripods. The 545GB has a die-cast aluminum shoulder with a built-in 100mm interface bowl, adjustable leg lock levers for reliability and safety in the field and a floor-level spreader which aids in tripod leg angle setting and improves rigidity. The 100mm interface bowl can be adapted to a 75mm interface via an optional accessory. The lowest leg section has twin spiked metal feet. The 545GB comes with quick on-off rubber shoes for better grip on smooth floors.

Manfrotto 755XB

Manfrotto 755XB MDeVe Video Tripod

The Manfrotto 755XB MDeVe Aluminum Tripod replaces Manfrotto's 755B MDeVe Tripod. Designed for the professional videographer, the Manfrotto 755XB MDeVe is an extremely versatile tripod, ideal for Mini DV camcorders. It has the same design as the 756XB tripod, but with a larger leg diameter, top spider and leg locks, enabling the 755XB to handle a higher load capacity. It is entirely made from aluminum, and has a removable center column with built-in 50mm leveling ball and bubble spirit level. This long and adjustable center center column can easily be re-fitted as a lateral arm. Not only does this allow the camera to be offset from the leg position, it is also the simplest way to shoot a subject from directly overhead.


Manfrotto MVT502AM

Manfrotto MVT502AM Twin-Leg Pro Video Tripod

Replacing the Manfrotto 547B tripod, the MVT502AM two-stage, three-section, lightweight aluminum tripod is designed for digital SLRs, HD camcorders and lightweight video cameras equipped with accessories such as lights, monitors and microphones. The Manfrotto MVT502AM is extremely rigid, stable and secure thanks to the twin-leg structure of its telescopic legs, ellipse-profile aluminium tubes, new leg locking collars, mid-level spreader and high-grip rubber feet. The MVT502AM is also intuitively easy to use, allowing you set up faster and concentrate on filming. The MVT502AM has a 75mm bowl with 60mm adapter for compatibility with a wide selection of professional video heads.


Manfrotto 190XPROB

Manfrotto 190XPROB Black Aluminum Pro Tripod

Newly 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.
