The Manfrotto Black Aluminum Pro Geared Tripod W/Geared Column incorporates a unique centre brace structure system, reliable quick-action leg locks, non-rollback three faceted centre column, spirit level and rubber/metal spiked feet. The revolutionary centre brace system can be operated in a symmetric or asymmetric way. This allows you to achieve two important results: fast positioning by locking the braces so that all of the legs will spread to the same angle and open instantly, or individual setting of the angle of each leg for the ultimate in tripod flexibility. To avoid annoying delays in leveling the tripod, the telescopic centre braces have been designed with two ﾓclick stop" positions that allow you to easily find the same spread angle on all three legs. The second improvement has been made to the leg locking system.

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.
sturdy all-metal construction
each of the legs can be set to a different angle of spread for more flexible, versatile positioning and to help keep camera equipment well-balanced over the tripod's center of gravity.
built-in mid-level spreader adds anti-torsional rigidity and stops the tripod legs from accidentally being knocked wider apart. Compared to a ground-level spreader or dolly, the mid-level spreader has the advantage that it stays well out of the mud and dirt and is more suitable for use on uneven terrain.
lockable, mobile spreader-to-column junction ring lets the tripod legs be set at various angles to either increase stability or reduce footprint
foldaway handle avoids damage in transport
geared center column allows safe, precise height adjustment even under heavy loads
