The Manfrotto 161 MK2B tripod has high load capacity and it is very stable and sturdy for the most demanding assignments

The Manfrotto MF 161 MK2B Super Pro Tripod is the tallest tripod in the range. The MF-161MK2B is capable of providing a stable platform for cameras up to 20kg at a maximum height of 2.67m! (On the other hand this giant is also capable of a minimum height of 44cm!). The geared centre column of the MF-161 MK2B is self-locking.

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. The Manfrotto MF161MK2B is an ideal for all large format cameras. Diameter legs in mm: 40,35,30.

Key Features

- The built-in mid-level spreader adds anti-torsional rigidity and stops the tripod legs from accidentally being knocked wider apart. Compared to a ground-level spreader or dolly, the mid-level spreader has the advantage that it stays well out of the mud and dirt and is more suitable for use on uneven terrain.
- The geared center column allows for safe and precise height adjustments.
- The three set screws in the camera platform can be used to permanently secure the head to the tripod, providing additional security.
- The twist locks are slightly slower to use than the more common "Quick Action" flip lever leg locks, but give total control over locking force. In addition, they are much easier to service out in the field.
