Manfrotto Compact Action Series tripod with built-in photo/movie head

The Compact Action is the best choice for owners of entry level DSLRs with standard kit lenses who like to shoot a lot of photos and movies. The ergonomic joystick head with scroll-wheel locking mechanism is very intuitive and easy-to-use. Its comfortable grip allows you to capture smooth movies and great images with little effort.
The innovative circular quick release plate is perfect for effortless camera attachment by hand without any need for coins or screwdrivers. Thanks to its shape, camera orientation will never be an issue again. Simply close the lever just above the joystick handle.
In addition, the Regulating Dial, together with the round quick release plate allows you to perfectly adjust every camera to the tripod thereby enhancing its stability.
Last but not least, the photo-movie selector allows maximum freedom in any circumstance. Switching to the desired mode only takes a second and ensures you always obtain great photos and smooth movies. For more information please refer to the product instruction manual.

Compatibility
The Compact Action is designed to work perfectly with entry level DSLRs with standard kit lenses but is compatible also with any device up to 1.5kg/3.3lbs such as Compacts, Compact System and Bridges Cameras. Please consider that a lot of semi-professional and professional equipment exceeds these requirements.

If you own a compact device with the tripod thread in an off-centre position please be aware that there are some limitations on how close to the side of the camera the �" thread can be. The minimum distance of the �" thread from the lateral edge of your device must be 13mm to guarantee the declared performance.

If you own a Sony Nex 5R/5T you have certainly noticed that these particular models have a very small surface area around the mounting thread. For this reason, in each Compact Light box, you will find a special adaptor that will increase the surface area of these specific cameras in order to better grip the tripod and obtain maximum stability.

Colours
The Compact Action is available in three colours: black, white and red/anthracite. The black and red come with a black padded carrying bag whereas the white comes with a white one. To preserve and protect its finishing and original colour we recommend cleaning it with a standard white pencil eraser. Special products or water could damage the finishing.

Stability plus

I upgraded and am happy with the stability of this model taking photos. I upgraded in order to be able to use my DSLR to record basketball games but have found that it is a little sticky when panning. I am looking to invest in a video camera anyway so not too disappointed. Overall, happy with the purchase.

Simple but quality

Bought this product based on reviews we had seen online and I can only agree with them fully that this is a quality product. It’s made well with every Snap clasp, lever and mechanism working smoothly and with ease. My camera novice husband is using it mostly and finds it really easy to get the camera in the right position and angle for what he’s up to. Can’t reccommend more for the price it is!

Manfrotto Compact Action Series tripod with built-in photo/movie head

The tripod Hold my Camera solidly with out sagging, Its and easy thumb role to loosen and swivel the camera left or wright and a button on the side role in any direction. Both my photography and video work has improved using it . You must splay the feet out properly so it does not move on you. Manfrotto seems to have put a lot of thought in to the design of it . You will notice that the legs and the center post with is not round but more triangle in shape , allowing it to but lock tight and steady . I do not recommend normally using the center post but it is better other tripods I have used. The only negative thing I will say is the lowest...view more

Great Tripod

Quite light weight and easy to carry around, as it's smallest state is very small. Legs are easy to extend and quick to lock in place. Ball head make it easy to position a shot. The wheel on the hande make for quick and easy tightening and lossinging of the head. It's tallest state is a great hight and you wouldn't want it any taller. Carry bag allows you to doing it over your shoulder to carry around with you. Camera is quick and easy to attach and secure. Be careful when taking your camera off, as larger camera could fall off when not secure. Had no problems with my large lens with the tripod. Not the best tripod to use for panning...view more
