If maximum stability and height is what you need then this is the tripod for the job. With a maximum height of 267cm the 161 Super Pro is Manfrotto’s tallest stills tripod. It’s also it’s sturdiest – it will take any camera you put on it with ease and it’s air-cushioned centre column won’t allow even the heaviest of cameras to accidentally slam down if loosened.
Surprisingly, for a tripod of this size it is also incredibly versatile and will not only go to a minimum height of 44cm but with it’s legs being able to be independently extended horizontally at up to 90° means one leg could be up on top of a wall and the other two below on the ground.
Add a Manfrotto 3-way 229 Super Pro head and you’ve got the tripod of all tripods.
