Manfrotto 755MF3 MDeVe Tripod 50 mm H.B. Carbon – A tripod that is compact, lightweight and fast to use. Anti-rotation tubing and leg collars make for a tripod (or monopod) that’s easier and faster to open, position and close. Manfrotto uses several different types of anti-rotation system – on Magfiber and Digi series tripods, the elliptical or three-faceted shape of the concentric tubes means they cannot rotate, while on round-tubed tripods small protrusions down the length of the tube keep sections perfectly aligned.
MDeVe tripods are the ideal MiniDV, DV8 or lightweight HDTV camera support, combining the panoramic levelling half-ball of professional video tripods with the compact structure of the photographic tripod. The built-in levelling half ball is located at the top of the extendable center column, and locked and unlocked using the grip twist at the bottom of the column. Because the head attachment plate is flat with a standard 3/8" screw, any flat-based head can be mounted on an MDeVe – be it a fluid video head, a photographic three-way, ball or pano head such as Manfrotto’s 303PLUS. In pano/qtvr photography, the levelling ball is also especially useful as it allows for faster tripod setup and more precise pano images.
Manfrotto’s carbon fiber tubing is popular among outdoor photographers because it’s light in weight, but not everyone knows it’s also more rigid and supports heavier loads than aluminum – giving it a double advantage.
The Manfrotto Group is a world leader in the design and manufacture of photographic and video camera supports, lighting supports and suspension equipment for professional photography, video, broadcast and cinematography.
