Manfrotto 161MK2B
Heavy Duty Aluminum Super Pro Tripod (with Geared Column, 8.76 ft. H)


The tallest tripod in the range, Manfrotto's 161MK2B is capable of providing a stable platform for cameras up to 20kg at a maximum height of 8.76 ft. (2.67 m), as well as a minimum height of 44cm.  The geared center column is self-locking and the legs are braced using telescopic struts for maximum rigidity and the ability to have individually adjustable and lockable angles.  Rubber feet with retractable spiked feet and level are standard equipment.  Ideal for all large format cameras. Diameter legs in mm: 40, 35, 30.


  • Anti-rotation tubing and leg collars make for a tripod (or monopod) that's easier and faster to open, position and close.  Small protrusions down the length of the tube keep sections perfectly aligned.
  • Retractable spiked feet mean you can use this tripod outdoors and the rubber feet are for indoor use
  • Surdy all-metal construction
  • The solid tripod/head plate has an industry standard 3/8" screw and three angled grub screws which stop the head from unscrewing accidentally in use and also block unwanted panoramic rotation or play between tripod and head
  • Wing nut leg locks are slightly slower to use than "Quick Action" flip lever leg locks, but give total control over locking force and are so easy to service out in the field that they'll never let you down.
  • The built-in, carefully hand-set bubble spirit level helps make sure your horizons really are horizontal
  • Geared center column allows safe, precise height adjustment even under heavy loads
