"Manfrotto Tripod and Head "

Have a lightly used Manfrotto Mag Fiber Tripod (055MF4) and a Manfrotto Head (0808RC4) for sale, new this setup cost over $500. Will take $300 for the set via paypal (includes shipping within the continental US). If sold separately: Tripod $250, head $75.


the Bogen-Manfrotto 055MF4 is a more compact tripod geared to the traveling photographer. The 055MF4 folds to just a shade over 21 inches yet extends to just under 5.5 feet. Light, simple, strong, and extremely versatile to position, the 055MF4 will comfortably support up to 15 pounds and offers a minimum height of only 4.3 inches for low-angle shooting.
Without compromising on stability or rigidity of the tripod, Manfrotto engineers reduced the weight of the 055MF4 by utilizing carbon fiber legs with quick action lever locks in magnesium and resin. In addition, they incorporated the patented design of the 3021PRO series top spider which offers four leg angle settings, and converts the center column into a lateral arm.
The center column itself is of the latest generation of aluminum and resin materials. The low-angle adapter forms the top section of the center column and is easily detached by simply unscrewing the knob at the bottom of the column. This enables the head to be left mounted on the center column when switching between low-angle and normal shooting positions.
All parts are assembled using a proven pressure clamp technology for greater durability and in-the-field serviceability. To make transportation even easier, the 055MF4 is supplied with a hand padded carrying strap that can also double as a hook to hang weight and increase stability during extreme wind conditions.
Features include:
• Carbon Fiber three-faced tubes for the tripod legs
• Aluminum and nylon polymer center column
• Magnesium die casting for all tripod parts and stainless steel nuts and bolts
• Ergonomic, user friendly features such as quick-action adjustable leg lever locks that instantly secure leg extensions firmly in place with no slippage or rotation
• Push buttons to operate leg angles to offer four degrees of inclination
• Center column with vertical/horizontal positioning
• Built-in low angle adapter
What's in the Box:
Included carrying handle makes the tripod more comfortable to transport and stays conveniently and unobtrusively attached during use.

Product Description
Retaining all the features of the 055MF3, the 055MF4 is a more compact tripod geared to the traveling photographer. The 055MF4 folds to just a shade over 21 inches yet extends to just under 5 1/2 feet. Light, simple, strong, and extremely versatile to position, the 055MF4 will comfortably support up to 15lbs and offers a minimum height of only 4.3 inches for low-angle shooting. Without compromising on stability or rigidity of the tripod, Manfrotto engineers reduced the weight of the 055MF4 by utilizing carbon fiber legs with quick action lever locks in magnesium and resin.

Manfrotto 0808RC4


DOUBLE AXIS SPRING SYSTEM
Features the new Double Axis Spring System, which consists of a built-in 3.30 lbspring for both the front tilt and side tilt movements. This innovative solution, borrowed from the video industry, helps to move the camera smoothly while framing the picture, as it helps to balance some of the camera weight. In addition, it absorbs the shock to bodies and lenses when reaching the end stop of the head movement. If you are using an extremely lightweight camera system, you can simply turn off one or both springs by the 2 separate control knobs.

DESIGN
In photography, image is everything and Manfrotto kept this in mind with the 808RC4. Manfrotto modernized the overall shape and rounded many of the hard edges to produce a fresh and elegant product. The new handles are designed to fit comfortably in your hand, even taking into consideration the size of your fingers. We are also using a new coating on our quick-release lever that is more durable and scratch resistant.
