The Manfrotto 5-Section Compact Advanced Aluminum White Tripod features an inventive, foldable three-way head for great stability and accuracy in framing your subject. This tripod is target at more advanced photo enthusiasts who own an entry level DSLR with standard zoom lenses up to 200mm. This three-way head has two independent, ergonomic levers. One controls both pan and tilt movement simultaneously whereas the second controls levelling. With these two control-levers you can easily obtain level, well-framed images and regulate all movements independently. This head has been specifically designed to minimise dimensions and maximize portability. A unique mechanism allows the levers to be folded when the head is not in use, making the tripod easier and more convenient to carry.
The high performance three-way head combined with reinforced, five-section tubes make the Compact Advanced Tripod the optimal solution for rigidity whilst also being able to reach the superior height of 165cm/65" when extended. The Compact Advanced Tripod is designed to work perfectly with entry level DSLRs with standard zoom lenses up to 200mm but are compatible also with any device up to 3.0kg/6.61lbs.

Just received this tripod to use with my Nikon D600. Excellent compromise of light weight and sturdy. I like the two lever adjustment of the head. It firmly stabilizes the camera. Very pleased overall
