Manfrotto 458B Neotec Pro Tripod
This award winning tripod is awesomely fast and easy to use. The Manfrotto 458B has the innovative Neotec rapid opening and closing mechanism- allowing you to open and automatically lock the legs in any position by just pulling each leg downwards, with no screws, knobs or levers to tighten or loosen. To fold it back up again, press the mechanism release button and push the leg closed.
Combined with the 458B's high load capacity of 8kg, great min-max height range (10-156cm) and its full range of professional features, this is the ideal tripod for location work under pressure. The 458B has a built in carrying handle; a two-section centre column for low angle or normal shooting and four set leg angle positions. "Upside down" leg construction also stops the worst of the mud you're standing in from ending up inside the tripod.
Features four pre-set independent leg angles that give the tripod great positioning flexibility and versatility, and allow all intermediate heights from the stated minimum to maximum levels to be reached. Stability is assured at all 4 angles by the spring-loaded step mechanism.
The patented PRO model has a unique design which allows the centre column to be used horizontally as an extending arm, or vertically (both right-way-up and upside-down). When used horizontally, it can be turned through 360° around the tripod, and is useful for macro work, low angle shooting, extreme balance points and off-centre work. This also makes the tripod a helpful accessory for chair-bound photographers, who can sit beside instead of behind the tripod, therefore much closer to the camera viewfinder.
This tripod has sturdy all-metal construction and a three-faceted column.
