That's what the assistants have named it: "the beast"However it is exactly what your looking for when it comes to solid support with no consideration with regards to it's weight..I love it... but I'm not the one who has to carry it. My assistants might have a different opinion of it....
I kept making do with old "heavy duty" tripods but really wanted to try the 161MK2 and glad I did. For BIG binoculars it is essential. I use it with the APM 100mm Astronomy Binoculars mated to a custom Yoke.
Crank Height, Good Stability, Very sturdy
Manfrotto's finest is on display in this tripod. If you have truly SERIOUS photography desires, this tripod will support anything you care to mount on it, and support it in the very most stable fashion. Is it expensive? Yes, but still a great bargain when compared to the $1000+ Gitzos. Is it heavy?
SUPER tall!, Overly stable, fantastic build quality and truly smooth operation. NEVER a quiver out of it!
Heavy at 17 pounds without a head, but this is NOT made for hobbiests!
