Manfrotto Compact Advanced


The Manfrotto Compact Advanced Tripod in black with foldable 3-way head provides great stability and accuracy in framing your subject. This aluminium tripod with 3 kg weight load is aimed at photo enthusiasts who own an entry level digital SLR with standard zoom lens attached (up to 200mm). The three-way head has two independent, ergonomic levers – one controls both pan and tilt movements simultaneously, whereas the second controls levelling. With these two control-levers you can easily obtain level, well-framed images and control all movements independently. Its clever design allows the levers to be folded when the head is not in use, making the tripod easier and more convenient to carry. The Manfrotto Compact Advanced tripod folds down to 44cm and can reach as high as 165cm when fully extended.

The Compact Advanced is designed to work perfectly with entry level DSLRs with standard zoom lenses up to 200mm but are compatible also with any device up to 3.0kg/6.61lbs. Please consider that a lot of semi-professional and professional equipment exceeds these requirements.

If you own a Sony Nex 5R/5T you have certainly noticed that these particular models have a very small surface area around the mounting thread. For this reason, in each Compact Light box, you will find a special adaptor that will increase the surface area of these specific cameras in order to better grip the tripod and obtain maximum stability.

The Compact Advanced is available in two colours, black and white, with matching padded carrying bags. To preserve and protect its finishing and original colour we recommend cleaning it with a standard white pencil eraser. Special products or water could damage the finishing.
