How to choose your camera support system
+
+
+

Considering your camera equipment and your specific needs related to the photography type, a balanced choice between tripod and head is the first fundamental step. The best choice is a balance among camera, tripod
and head features and the photographer’s specific needs.
1
2
CONSIDER YOUR CAMERA WEIGHT
The first thing to consider before selecting a tripod + head is
the camera weight.
Please remember to select a system balanced with the weight
of your camera. Don’t forget also to consider the lens you are
using.
For example, using long lenses, the center of gravity of your
camera will have a greater offset than using a normal lens, and
this could require extra stability from your tripod and head.
In this case you could consider to choose a system with an
higher max load capacity, being sure you have maximized the
stability of your supporting system.

CALCULATE THE SYSTEM MAX LOAD CAPACITY
If you want to evaluate the max load for the system (tripod
+ head), please consider the min value between tripod max
load and head max load capacity (note: don’t forget that the
tripod has to carry not only the camera but also the head).

The Manfrotto heads/tripods range includes products with different features, materials, max height, closed length, weight, max load,
considering the different needs and camera/lens you have.

TRIPODS
Tripod choice is more related to the general
environment, stability need, transportability, max/
min height, weight, specific features (such as
materials, for example).
HEADS
According to their design, heads can work well in
specific situations considering several factors: type
of photography (macro, portrait, panorama, etc.),
speed, precision, camera/lens type.
CAMERA TYPE
CAMERA USE
Macro
Sport action
Compact / point-and-shoot
Professional SLR
(digital/analog)
Portrait
Night
Bridge (advanced
non-interchangeable lens)
Medium format (digital/analog)
Panorama
landscape
Architecture
Consumer SLR
(digital/analog)
Large format (digital/analog)
For example, macro photography needs a greater freedom of movement and a low angle; sport subjects may need a quick set up;
panorama landscapes and architectural application require precision and micro adjustments.
Cameras (and lenses) have different weights and are suitable for different applications. Compact and bridge cameras and consumer DSLR
usually have a low weight and need therefore a lighter and more transportable support; professional DSLR are heavier and require more
stability and precision. For these reasons, the right support depends on your camera equipment and the kind of photography you are
looking for.

(from outdoor to indoor use) and
different features in terms of max
payload, materials, max height,
compactness, considering the
photographic applications and
the different equipment used.
The Studio range, rugged, tough
and strong, specifically designed

tripods for different kinds of photography and cameras, in order
to have the perfects tool for every
different need.
11
TRIPODS
STUDIO
Rugged, tough and strong, the Studio
tripod range is ideal for studio or indoor
applications and has been developed to
stabilize the extra loads associated with
large format cameras and lenses. Each
tripod of the family has a centre column
made of a “non-rollback” tube controlled
by a gear mechanism. The top spider is
a reinforced die casting aluminium and
the legs are stabilized by an adjustable
mid level spreader. The tripods offer
different technologies for the locking system
which can be the traditional locking knob,
the quick action levers or the time tested
automatic leg lock and release system
used on the Triaut. With a wide range
of size and weight the Manfrotto’s
Studio family meets the needs of all the
professional photographers.
12
NEOTEC
This is “how a tripod should work”: how
easily and quickly it should be set up
and how effortlessly it should close. At
the heart of this tripod lies the innovative
Neotec mechanism which, hidden safely
inside the leg and without any external
levers or knobs, pushes outwards on
the tubing to lock the leg in place at any
extension.
With the patented Neotec rapid opening
and closing mechanism, with no screws,
knobs or levers to tighten or loosen, just
pull each leg downwards to open and
automatically lock it in any position.
Then to fold it back up again, press the
mechanism release button and push the
leg closed. The mechanism exerts more
locking power the heavier the weight
pushing down on it from above. “Upside
down” leg construction also stops the
worst of the mud you’re standing in from
ending up inside the tripod.
Combined with the high load capacity,
great min-max height range and its full
range of professional features, this makes
it the ideal tripod when working under
pressure.
X
The X family is the next generation of
proven-professional tripods; high-quality
materials, innovative design and features,
accurate control ensure that these
tripods are the perfect choice for
professionals and photographers who
don’t want any compromise in terms
of quality and performance, neither in
aluminium nor in carbon fiber products.
This family includes 055 and 190 ranges,
each of them available in X or CX versions.
X models are equipped with strong and
reliable aluminium tubes; CX versions are
equipped with high-quality carbon fiber
tubes for maximum lightness and rigidity.
055 versions offer very high payload
and greater height; 190 version features
maximized lightness and compactness
without compromises about performance
and quality.
Furthermore, 055 and 190PRO (X or
CX) versions include the patented Q90°
column system, developed to move
the central column from vertical to
horizontal position in a few seconds without
disassembling the column from the tripod.
A wide variety of versatile products ideal
for outdoor applications. Among the
models, photographers can choose the
best one for the specific application,
enjoying the latest technological features
coming from Manfrotto’s creativity.
M-Y
Designed for the first-time photographers
using lightweight DSLR, and compact
bridge cameras, the M-Y tripods
are the perfect balanced choice for
improving your photographic passion.
Small, portable, compact, essential and
reliable, they offer a perfect tripod+head
combination. Without the hassle of
choosing a separate head, an M-Y tripod
is always ready for mounting your camera,
providing you an immediate and simple
solution, ready to be taken virtually
anywhere. Available in two different sizes
with different payloads, M-Y tripods are
equipped with three-way (suitable also for

PRO GEARED TRIPOD 475B
TRIMAN TRIPOD 028B
All aluminium construction and unrivalled in stability, the 475B Pro Geared
Tripod incorporates a unique centre brace structure system, reliable
quick-action leg locks, non-rollback three faceted centre column, spirit
level and rubber/metal spiked feet. The revolutionary centre brace system
can be operated in a symmetric or asymmetric way. This allows you to
achieve two important results: fast positioning by locking the braces so
that all of the legs will spread to the same angle and open instantly, or
individual setting of the angle of each leg for the ultimate in tripod flexibility.
To avoid annoying delays in levelling the tripod, the telescopic centre braces
have been designed with two “click stop” positions that allow you to easily
find the same spread angle on all three legs. The second improvement has
been made to the leg locking system.
Leg section diameters in mm: 35, 30, 25.
Strong, sturdy and reliable, the Triman tripod is the ideal studio tripod.
The geared centre column has a non roll-back feature and has a threaded
3/8” mount on the bottom of the column to allow low angle shots.
Twin shank leg design, built-in spirit level and rubber feet with retractable
spikes are standard features.
The tripod uses a centre column strut design for added stability. Includes a
mid level spreader and carrying strap. Ideal for cameras up to medium format.

Manfrotto tubes are made of 100%
carbon fiber in order to reach high quality
standards and high levels of performance,
rigidity and lightness. Carbon fiber
tubes can be very different in quality,
depending on the production process
and the percent of carbon fiber
material present in the tubes. Manfrotto
chose to reach the maximum quality
using 100% carbon fiber and the pull
winding technology (a special production
process able to maximize performance,
resistance and reliability).
The CXPRO models include the patented
Q90° system. This ingenious system
allows the user to move the central
column from vertical to horizontal
position in just seconds without having
to disassemble the column.
3 SECTION CARBON F./MAG. TRIPOD 055CXPRO3

HEADS
Heads
As well as the tripod, it’s fundamental
to choose a proper and balanced
head considering your camera
equipment, the photo application
and the tripod you are going to
use. The Manfrotto range includes
a wide group of different kinds
of head for different payloads
and applications: geared heads,
a Manfrotto invention designed
primarily for studio use and offering
micro-precise framing, ultra-safe
support with greate load capacity;
three-way heads, characterized
by the fact that the movement on
each axis is separately controlled
by individual locks for more secure
support; ball heads, the fastest
heads to adjust thanks to their
single lock/unlock mechanism
which releases the ball and socket
joint to rotate on all axes (available
also in the hydrostatic version,
able to have an incredible lock with
a simple move); joystick heads, a
patented Manfrotto invention, with a
unique, fast and ergonomic release
system; two-way heads, a crossover
from the video sector, popular
with users of long heavy lenses
and sport optics; VR panoramic
heads, used to create single-row
cylindrical or multi-row spherical
composite photographic images
for immersive virtual environments
or simply for panorama prints.

STANDARD 3-WAY HEAD WITH QUICK RELEASE PLATE 808RC4
The 808RC4 streamlines our range of 3-way heads by incorporating new elements while maintaining all the features you loved. There are two balance springs in the
vertical tilt (forward/backward) and horizontal tilt (left/right) movements. These springs enable you to more comfortably handle heavier camera loads (such as very
long lenses) with minimal effort. Both springs can be turned off in case normal head operation is required. The head is comprised of aluminium and designed in a
manner to support up to 8kg yet lightweight and small enough to pack in any camera kit. The standard quick release system is used to accommodate larger camera
platforms and incorporates dual axis bubble levels to achieve level shots.

Use the 300N base as a turntable to spin a 3D object through sequential constant angle movements in front of your camera until
a 360° cycle has been completed. Superimpose the images in the correct order using your chosen software to allow viewers to
see the object from all angles.
Spherical panorama
Use the 303, 303PLUS or 303SPH head plus a 185° fisheye lens. Take two photos at 180° to each other, then stitch them
together to create a 360°x360° spherical panorama.
Cylindric panorama
Use the 303, 303PLUS or 303SPH head to spin your camera around its nodal point through a longitudinal sequence of constant
angle shots on the same level which can be stitched together (basically... placed edge to edge) using your chosen software to
create a single row “cylindrical” panorama.
Multi-row / cubic panorama
Use the 303SPH to spin your camera around its nodal point through both latitudinal and longitudinal sequences of constant angle
shots which can then be stitched together and composite to create a multi-row cubic 360°x360° panorama.

MULTI ROW PAN HEAD 303SPH
The 303SPH is a multi-row panoramic photography head. It has sliding plates
to locate the camera over the panoramic axis of rotation, plus a sliding
plate which rotates around the front/back tilt axis. This allows the camera
to be rotated on both horizontal and vertical axes around the camera/lens
nodal point, so multi-row panoramic photo sequences (cubic VR photos)
can be taken accurately and easily. Using the 303SPH ensures that software
used for photo stitching produces a precisely composed VR environment
with minimum post-production intervention or software correction. All plates
and rotation index guides on the 303SPH have clear markings to allow easy
repositioning of the camera once nodal point position has been identified
and noted down. The 303SPH’s vertical bracket can be unlocked and
rotated through 90° (then re-locked) so that the head takes up less space
in transport, and so that the sliding plate mechanisms are protected against
knocks and bumps. The 303SPH comes complete with an extra set of
sliding plates for use with cameras of different sizes.

adjustment via a gear drive system; a release button disengages the gear drive to facilitate rapid movement of the plates when required. The plates are also longer
than those of the 303 head, which helps to make this head suitable for use with larger traditional or digital SLR cameras equipped with standard or wide angle
lenses, or for medium format cameras.

PAN ROTATION UNIT 300N
The 300N panoramic rotation unit allows the photographer to take sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis, an essential part of achieving accurate and
easy-to-stitch panoramic compositions. The set positions of the 300N give ample choice of rotation angle and so of number of photos needed to complete a 360°
pan and cover the most common requests of panoramic photographers depending on the camera/lens equipment used.
To make angle selection easier, a “click-stop” selector screw is included and attached to a safety cable to prevent it from being separated from the head and getting
lost. The 300N also comes complete with a secondary locking screw which stops unwanted or accidental rotation of the head when heavy or off-centre equipment
makes it less balanced or when the head is used for non-horizontal rotation.
The 300N can also be used as a turntable base for object panoramas, or as a means of reading the angle of rotation of camera pan movements in a range of
photography. A camera can be mounted on the panoramic unit by adding one of a range of quick release, sliding or fixed plates or a conventional geared, ball or
3-way head.

MONOPODS
Monopods
Besides the tripod, the monopod
is the best way to hold a camera
in situations where space is limited,
the quantity and weight of the
equipment carried on location
needs to be kept to a minimum, or
set-up speed is needed.
Correctly handled, the monopod
supplies all the camera support
you are likely to need even for long
lenses. Because monopods are
an important part of every photographer’s support equipment,
Manfrotto’s monopod range
includes many different models,
considering different materials
(carbon fiber or aluminium),
number of sections, payload,
locking technology, max height,
compactness.

LOW ANGLE ADAPTER FOR 055 RANGE 055LAA
Low angle adapter to store at the bottom of the centre column when the tripod legs angle is set to 43°, 73° and 90°.
LEVELLING CENTRE COLUMN 555B
LEVELLING CENTRE COLUMN 556B
Our innovative system means you can quickly level your photo or video head without needing to make time-consuming adjustments to the length and angle of each
single tripod leg. One of the most common problems in still photography and, above all, video has been resolved by Manfrotto, thanks to the use of a 50mm diameter
levelling half ball mounted at the top of a tripodcentre column so as to make the angle of the top plate independent of the rest of the tripod. Locking and unlocking
of the half ball is via a turning grip on the bottom of the centre column, which can be removed during fitting of the column to your existing tripod.
The half ball-mounted plate has a male 3/8” screw for attachment to a photo or video head, and a bubble spirit level for added ease of use.

Carrying solutions
A complete range of carrying and
transportation solutions designed
around the tripod\head.
With Manfrotto’s new carrying
systems, we’ve worked from the
inside out to invent new contoured
bag shapes that fit your kit and offer
convenient ways of setting up and
breaking down faster, a “space
pad” that lets you shoulder carry
your tripod without risking bangs
and bruises, an open backpack
that keeps your hands free, your
tripod protected and weight to a
minimum. Whether you want a
handle or strap that doesn’t even
have to be removed from your
tripod when you set up a shoot,
or whether you need a protective
shell to get your kit safely through
baggage hall hell, we’re pleased to
say we’ve got the solution.
With innovative technical features,
prime materials and first class
construction methods, the quality
of all our bags and carrying solutions
is up to the high standards you
expect from Manfrotto.

clip that fastens quickly to the steel ring at the shoulder of the tripod, and
a closed loop that goes around the feet of the tripod and tightens to grip
them securely. Features an adapter for compatibility with all Manfrotto
tripods and rubberised fabric for comfort and to avoid the tripod slipping on
your shoulder.

APRON SUPPORT 166
Three compartments hang below the column supported by straps above the
leg locks. Fits most Manfrotto tripods.
HAND A LONG 458HL
Hand carrying strap system for 190 and 055 range of tripods, made of two
adjustable straps, one to set the hooks distance when mounted on the 055
or 190 models and the second to bind together their legs to avoid their
opening during the transportation.
The strap stays attached to your
tripod when shooting.
QUICK ACTION STRAP 401N
A quick and easy accessory for carrying your tripod when walking, hiking,
cycling or just getting from shoot to shoot. Use the shorter straps to fasten
the padded 401N to one of the legs of your tripod, bind the remaining legs
together using the longer adjustable quick release straps, sliding the tripod
over your shoulder and you’re ready to go. The padding helps hold the tripod
in place and protects your back from bruises and chaffing. The 401N even
stays attached to your tripod when shooting (all you need to do is release
the longer quick release straps so you can manoeuvre and position all three
legs), so you’re always ready to capture the images you want, but also
always ready to move off again to the next location.
Straps can be removed and custom-positioned
to better match the size of your tripod.

For safety reasons we have decided to provide two values of load
capacity for our Studio Stands, please refer to the drawing below.
Higher load value refer to the max load capacity used on the arm of the
studio stand when you operate inside the base semicircle (gray area).
Lower load value refer to the max load capacity used on the arm of the
studio stand when you operate outside the base semicircle (red area).
Studio Stand Mini Salon 800 do not mount sliding horizontal arm so the

CSR
Corporate Social Responsibility is
an essential value for Manfrotto. We
consider Corporate Responsibility
as a significant way to employ
our people energy and passion
in order to generate a meaningful
change. For this reason we
are involved in several projects
to support the fundamental
human rights, particularly for
kids, and to define specific
programs aimed to minimize
116
the environmental impact. To
support these causes we actively
provide funding or equipment
to the organizations we sustain.
One of our main projects,
started in 2007, is to sponsor
the set-up and diffusion of the
temporary and touring exhibition
“Acholi un popolo da amare”,
about Acholi refugee camps in
Northern Uganda, a country that
suffered 20 years of civil war. This
exhibition has two objectives:
the first one is to promote the
further knowledge of the situation
of this African tribe, and the
second one is to raise funds to
realize important humanitarian
interventions in the area. Moreover
we are supporting an international
program run by the Dottor
Clown Italia association, which
aim is to keep suffering people
amused during hospitalization.
E
BILITY
TY
We believe that, in order to succeed
in our job, we also need to share
principles and values that define
our identity, meaning also a clear
responsibility for the impact of our
activities on employees, customers,
shareholders, communities and the
environment. A good relationship
among these players - based
on integrity, transparency and
honesty - is very important to
improve the quality of our lives.
In our everyday approach we
adopt policies marked by fairness
i n o rd e r t o i m p ro v e o u t w a rd
transparency for our shareholders.
Because all human activity has
an inevitable impact on the
planet and can be contained and
mitigated through research and the
adoption of cutting-edge solutions,
we have opted to use electrical
energy from renewable sources
for our most important plants.
We operate through certificates
that are issued in the country
where the production of electrical
energy from renewable sources
takes place. This encourages the
development of a global renewable
energy sources market and
therefore promotes the spread
o f n e w p ro d u c t i o n c a p a c i t y.
Social responsibility commitment
is part of our company philosophy,
an important part of our growth.

CARBON FIBER
Manfrotto’s carbon fiber tubes reach the highest quality standards and performance.
They provide an outstanding rigidity and lightness.
Carbon fiber tubes can be produced with very different processes, generating products with different levels
of quality. Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fiber and the pull winding
technology. This production process is able to maximize performance, resistance and reliability.
Closed lenght
Minimum height
MAGNESIUM
Magnesium is a light metal, with two thirds the density of aluminium. It’s a good material for having
good mechanical properties reducing the weight in medium volume components and parts.
Maximum height
ALUMINUM
One of the most popular materials for light weight structures. The Manfrotto’s aluminium is selected with the
highest quality criteria in order to provide the required performance in terms of reliability, lightness and stability.

Q90 COLUMN
This ingenious system allows the user to move the central column from vertical
to horizontal position in just seconds without having to disassemble the column.
GEARED COLUMN
The control system for safely moving
heavy loads on professional tripods.
LOW ANGLE ADAPTER
The useful accessory for reducing the
minimum height of the tripod.
NEOTEC TECHNOLOGY
The innovative Manfrotto technology to quickly set up and
close the tripod legs without using levers or knobs.
LEVELLING BUBBLE
The basic but essential way to place your
tripod/head system in the right position.
QUICK RELEASE
The head plate allows to quickly fix and release
the camera without risks of vibration or slipping.
BALL FRICTION
The friction of the ball head can be adjusted
to safely control the camera movement.
HYDRO TECHNOLOGY
Manfrotto’s hydraulic mechanism for having the best locking system on ball heads. Using the hydrostatic
laws, Manfrotto has designed a very efficient system for loads up to 16kg. With a fingertip control, the camera
can be locked in a secure position giving the impression it has become a single fixed object with the head.
FLUID CARTRIDGE
The system for having smooth and regular movements when using video cameras. A special fluid
cartridge is used in order to avoid direct friction between surfaces, providing better control and
constant movements. A required technology for heads and monopods coupled with video cameras.
COUNTERBALANCE SPRING
Special springs can be used inside heads in order to handle more comfortably heavier camera loads.
These springs can be turned off in case normal operation is required.
MICRO ADJUSTMENT
Geared system for a very fine
adjustment of the camera position.
