Manfrotto 055MF4 MagFiber 4SCT Tripod. A four section carbon fiber tripod for a shorter folded length matched with good extended height… Specifically designed for extreme outdoor assignments, this tripod uses the same construction as the 055PRO but uses different materials for the legs and all metal parts. Like the 055PRO, the 055MF4 has a three-faceted aluminum center column, which can offset the pressure of the locking system and the torsion caused while in the horizontal position. The legs are constructed of 1.2 mm carbon fiber tube combined with magnesium diecasting, quick-action lever locking collars made of magnesium die-casting. Each leg can be set independently in one of four angle settings using the dedicated quick-action leg angle selector. The top spider is made of magnesium die-casting, and includes the clamping system for the dual position center column plus a built-in bubble level. To assure the best thermal resistance, all parts has been assembled using a proven pressure clamping technology that eliminates failure-prone glue joints for greater durability and in-the-field serviceability. A hand-padded carrying strap, supplied with the tripod, can also operate like a hook to hang weights from in order to increase the stability of the tripod during shoots in extreme wind conditions. It is ideal support for all SLR analog/digital camera equipment, medium format cameras and spotting scopes modified for digiscoping applications. The Manfrotto 055MF4 MagFiber 4SCT Tripod is suitable for SLR cameras with short and/or light fixed-length lenses, SLR cameras with mid-long focal length lenses and zooms, medium format cameras, spotting scopes and sport optics.
With a simple lock/unlock mechanism on the centre column, Rapid Column Tripods are faster and easier to adjust in height than their counterparts. The column can also often be inverted for ground-level macros or even set horizontally to get the camera out from above the tripod legs.
