manfrotto-725b.jpg


(From company literature) Manfrotto 725B Digi with Ball Head. A new and improved tripod that replaces the 724B. The new 725B comes with a micro "dovetail" quick release plate.


This lightweight and compact tripod offers all the rock steady support necessary for high-quality imaging for today's digital and conventional cameras. It includes a built-in aluminum ball head with a single "ratchet" locking lever, as well as quick-action leg locks for fast set-up and breakdown.


Four section tripod legs permit a folded length just over 19" making the 725B ideal for fitting into luggage. The 725B weighs 3lbs and can support digital (and film) camera’s up to 7.7lbs.


In addition, the innovative three faceted center column design prevents any column rotation and is reversible for low-angle shots. A rucksack-style bag (MBAGD) is also included.


Specifications:

  • Head: Ball Head with 785PL QR Plate
  • Number of Leg Sections: 4
  • Leg Locks: Lever
  • Maximum Operating Height: 164.1 cm / 64.6 in.
  • Maximum Height w/o Column Extended: 132.1 cm / 52 in.
  • Minimum Operating Height: 47 cm / 18.5 in.
  • Folded Length: 50 cm / 19.7 in.
  • Maximum Load: 3.49 kg / 7.7 lbs
  • Weight: 1.41 kg / 3.1 lbs

Pros: lightweight, ballhead included, quick-release system included.
Cons: Legs spread out in only one position.

This is my first tripod and I like it a lot. It works well with my 2 Lb. Sony DSC-R1. It isn't as fanscy as e.g. the 055 carbonfiber tripod, but it is a very good tripod for the money I paid for it.
