(From company literature) Manfrotto 3051. A favorite professional tripod for medium format cameras up to 5 X 4", the 3051 is one of the most exciting tripods in the whole Manfrotto line.

Features patented automatic simultaneous or individual leg release system that permits the legs to be extended, the tripod levelled (spirit level included) and locked in seconds without the need for individual leg adjustment. Rubber feet with retractable spiked feet are standard.

This tripod is capable of extremely low camera position with the platform at only 17", yet has the ability to go up and stand over 7 feet!
