Overview: The Manfrotto Compact Action aluminum tripod is designed for use with
large point-and-shoot, mirrorless, and smaller DSLRs up to 3.31 pounds. This
lightweight tripod fills the gap between a mini-tripod and a full-size tripod.
It features 5-section legs with rubber feet that supply a secure, non-slip base on any surface.
The Compact Action tripod has a universal 1/4" screw thread on a full 90° tilting, 360° rotating
hybrid joystick head. It has a rapid center column, and comes with a convenient,
padded carrying bag.
Five-section Legs: The Compact Action tripod is equipped
with five-section legs with flip-type locks. The five telescoping leg sections
have diameters of 0.48, 0.6, 0.73, 0.85, and 0.98 inches, and are set at 21°.
The range of height is 17.32" to 52.36" with the center column down, and 61.02"
with the center column extended. The closed length is 17.83".
Head Action: The Compact Action aluminum tripod has a hybrid
joystick head with
a circular quick-release plate, allowing you to quickly attach and detach the
camera. The ergonomic joystick head can easily be controlled with one hand. The
scroll-wheel style locking mechanism lets you unlock the head, adjust your shot,
and lock it down with a simple movement of your thumb. The quick-release plate
has a standard 1/4" screw thread. The head can
rotate the camera a full 360° and tilt the head up to 90° forward or laterally.
Photo/Movie Selector: The Compact Action tripod's
Photo/Movie Selector is two-way lever on the side of the head. In the Photo
position, the head can be freely rotated and tilted forward, backward, and
laterally, including in the portrait orientation. In the Movie position, the
head is prevented from tilting laterally, remaining in the landscape orientation
and stabilizing any panoramic movements you make as you follow your subject or
pan across the scene.
Sony NEX Adapter: A mount adapter for the Sony NEX 5R and 5T
cameras is included. These, and other cameras, feature an unusual contoured
bottom panel, and the adapter increases the surface of the top plate, giving you
more stability and a better grip.
Warranty: The Manfrotto Compact-series tripods carry a
Standard Limited Warranty of two years from the date of purchase. The products
are eligible for a free Standard Limited Warranty Extension of an additional
three years (a total of 5 years) when registered online.
