|Tripod and Gimbal Type Head|
Carbon fiber Tripod and Steel head with a built in bubble level at the tripod base.
The most economical option among Gimbal heads, the Manfrotto 393 puts the tilt axis (up/down) in line with the midpoint of the lens' weight. This makes movement with a large telephoto lens easy enough to be done with one finger. Point the rig where you want, let go and it stays where you left it. Height of the lens is adjustable and there is a built-in pan base.
The built-in 357 quick release assembly allows fore/aft movement within the mount for perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The 357PL quick release plate includes two 1/4"-20 screws (many large tripod collared lenses have two sockets in their collars) and one 3/8"-16 screw. The 393 is appropriate for all telephoto lenses with a tripod collar.
Load capacity is 12 kg, suitable for large telephoto lenses such as the 300mm f2.8, 500mm f/4 and larger.
Please note: This tripod is shipping in its own bag.
