(From company literature) Manfrotto 728B Digi with 3-Way Head. A new and improved tripod that replaces the 3405B.

Ideally suited for compact, 35mm SLR's, or the new generation of lightweight camcorders, the 728B is a 4-section tripod that provides a stable platform for rock steady shots.

Lightweight and compact, the legs are constructed of sturdy multifaceted tubular aluminum that features new quick flip lever leg locks for fast set-up and breakdown. The shoulder of the tripod is made of cast aluminum to increase rigidity, and it incorporates a unique single hinge design which allows for a more compact leg section when folded.

The center column is also reversible for low-angle shots, and the integrated 3-way head is also made of cast aluminum and features a quick release plate. Pan and tilt movements are extremely smooth to allow for clean video pans and tilts, and a rucksack-style bag (MBAGD) is also included.
