Part # 728B


The 728B has a built-in smooth-moving 3 way head in cast aluminium suitable for use with small video cameras as well as with photographic equipment. The head has separate pan and tilt locks, a quick release camera plate and with a short pan/tilt bar for more ergonomic use, particularly while panning or tracking moving subjects. The leg pivot system uses a unique single hinge design in aluminium which both keeps the cross section smaller and allows the leg to fold shorter than conventional tripods. Includes carrying bag. Manfrotto 728B replaces Manfrotto 3405.
    • anti-rotation leg sections

      Anti-rotation tubing and leg collars make for a tripod (or monopod) that's easier and faster to open, position and close. Manfrotto uses several different types of anti-rotation system: on Magfiber and Digi series tripods, the elliptical or three-faceted shape of the concentric tubes means they cannot rotate, while on round-tubed tripods small protrusions down the length of the tube keep sections perfectly aligned

    • q-r camera plate 200pl

      The compact, rectangular 200PL quick release plate system fits neatly under small-bodied still cameras up to SLR (even with tele lenses) or small medium format, or under small video cameras or spotting scopes. Its rubber pad gives a good grip without damaging the camera, and its angled sides ensure that it also fits perfectly and tightly into a wide range of Manfrotto heads

    • built-in head

      tripod with built-in head - unlike most Manfrotto models, this tripod is pre-fitted with an unremovable head. This ensures compatibility and keeps weight and size to a minimum, but means the head cannot be interchanged in the future.

    • separate lock each axis

      With a separate lock on each axis of movement, this head can be precisely adjusted, and panning/tracking can be achieved on any axis

    • single lock

      A convenient single locking mechanism blocks or frees movement on all axes for greater speed of use

    • digi angled foot

      The rubber feet on DIGI series tripods are angled for a larger, more stable point of contact with the ground.

    • digi bag included

      Tripod shoulder bag included

    • digi q-r leg locks

      Digi q-r leg locks

    • digi series

      Part of the DIGI series of lightweight, compact supports for small digital point-and-shoot cameras

    • three axes

      Three separate axes of movement - panoramic rotation, front-back tilt and side tilt

    • three-faceted column

      Three-faceted column

    • three-faceted leg

      Leg sections use three-faceted tubing for greater anti-torsional resistance

    • weight-saving construction

      Materials, design and construction techniques have been carefully selected to help save weight without sacrificing stability or strength

    • digi single hinge crown design

      The DIGI design uses a single-sided pivot between the tripod leg and the shoulder casting to keep the tripod's cross section even more compact and to reduce overall weight.
