Manfrotto 756MF3 MDeVe Tripod 50 mm H.B. Carbon – The 756MF3 is the most innovative tripod of the MDEVE series due to the combination of low weight (Carbon Fiber for the legs/Magnesium die casting) and high load capacity materials used for its construction. Its unique, patent-pending aluminum center column construction and precisionmachined red anodized aluminum includes a built-in 50mm leveling ball system locked by a detachable rotating grip built at the bottom of the center column, which allows the camera operator to level the camera and even adjust its height without needing to make micro adjustments to each individual tripod leg. The castings of the 756MF3 are constructed of Magnesium to reduce the weight. The crown design also allows the center column to be horizontally mounted to achieve low-angle or table-top shots.
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. Flip lever leg locks make opening, positioning and closing fast and easy. The tension of the locking mechanism is user-adjustable, and all parts can be easily serviced or replaced.
Solid tripod/head plate has an industry standard 3/8" screw and three angled grub screws which stop the head from unscrewing accidentally in use and also block unwanted panoramic rotation or play between tripod and head.
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.
