The Manfrotto Compact Action Tripod in black is the perfect choice for beginners and enthusiasts looking for a first time tripod to match the weight of their entry-level digital SLRs with kit lens attached (max load 1.5kg). The aluminium, 5 leg section design allows the tripod to extend to a maximum height of 155cm (133cm with centre column down) and close down to a travel-friendly 45.3cm. The tripod comes with an ergonomic joystick head with scroll-wheel locking mechanism and comfortable grip, which allows users to make smooth, quick and easy adjustments. The innovative circular quick release plate with 1/4” screw is perfect for effortless camera attachment. Simply close the lever just above the joystick handle to change from landscape to portrait orientation. The Regulating Dial, together with the round QR plate allows you to perfectly adjust every camera to the tripod thereby enhancing its stability. More
The photo-movie selector allows maximum freedom in any circumstance. Switching to the desired mode only takes a second and ensures you always obtain great photos and smooth movies. For more information please refer to the product instruction manual.
The Compact Action is designed to work perfectly with entry level DSLRs with standard kit lenses but is compatible also with any device up to 1.5kg/3.3lbs such as Compacts, Compact System and Bridges Cameras. Please consider that a lot of semi-professional and professional equipment exceeds these requirements.
If you own a compact device with the tripod thread in an off-centre position please be aware that there are some limitations on how close to the side of the camera the ¼" thread can be. The minimum distance of the ¼" thread from the lateral edge of your device must be 13mm to guarantee the declared performance.
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.

Comments about Manfrotto Compact Action Tripod - Black:
This was a replacement to my old tripod which I found heavy, bulky and a fiddle to adjust. This one however, is far lighter, compact and very easy to adjust. A first rate tripod for the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent and light
About Me Semi-Professional
I've just bought a Fuji x-T1 and was looking for a suitably lightweight tripod for holidays and adays out. This Manfrotto is just about perfect. It's light enough to carry around, and sturdy enough (although not a full height). The quick release is great - the small button style qr stays on the camera all the time. The head is locked and unlocked using your thumb on a roller, and the handle is easy to use. All in all, very pleased.
