A favorite professional tripod for medium format cameras up to 5 X 4", the 3251 is one of the most exciting tripods in the whole Manfrotto line.
Features patented automatic simultaneous or individual leg release system that permits the legs to be extended, the tripod levelled (spirit level included) and locked in seconds without the need for individual leg adjustment. Rubber feet with retractable spiked feet are standard.
This tripod is capable of extremely low camera position with the platform at only 17", yet has the ability to go up and stand over 7 feet!

I learned about this tripod by watching Sam Puc'. After breaking down and ordering one, I found that I'd made a great purchase. I would not recommend this for traveling, simply because it's so heavy and bulky. (Unless you have gear carriers you can check, I use a golf bag.) However I do use it for senior sessions, weddings, wildlife and other shoots where stability is necessary. It sets up faster than any other tripod I've seen and adjusts just as quickly. Bottom line, if you can heft it ... I say get it.
