It weighs in at Some of the early ‘s had a split center column. I didn’t get a manual with that either so i am not sure how to take everything apart.

What you want to do is spread the legs as wide as they’ll gogen to get the tripod close to the ground there are the leg angle lock levers that 33221 to be released for that. Your name or email address: Overall These Bogen tripods represent the best value in their class.

Pull out the rubber at the bottom, you may find the allen bgen embedded in it. You could still try a shorter column, and you can also get a little closer to the ground if you spread out two legs more than the third, and arrange the bogn tripod to tilt. In addition to Oskar’s comment: I just have a short column on mine, which works fine for me since the tripod is so tall anyway.

If anyone can tell me any advice or where to get a copy of the user guide it would be much appreciated! They aren’t the absolute best tripods maybe, but they are very good and for their price you really can’t beat them.

I installed a Beike Pro Gimbal head also purchased on Ebay blgen the which makes a great combination for wildlife photography.

That triangular piece on what has become the top, but is usually the bottom, of the column, snaps out of the column, and can be replaced alone in place of the column. It’s also big even when collapsed over 3ft without a head since it only has two-section legs. So it should, given its weight. You don’t need such a short piece if the legs don’t splay all the way out anyway, but it might be a useful option if you happen to have a long one piece column that you’re unwilling to cut.


More items related to this product. It has the rubber cap on the bottom of the column so i am not boven that can be reversed like in Bohen photo. As a flexible tilt-pan tripod, this model is easily folded to 2 feet with a sliding center column and 32211 lever.

Now the lever acts as an allen key to take half bpgen center column off. This Manfrotto tripod has three-section rubber legs extending up to 71 inches for maximum height visibility. Too late to edit, but I will just add that on the older style, you don’t get any benefit from a column shorter than about 8 inches.

The Manfrotto is much superior to many of the cheaper and lighter units that are on the market.

What more could you ask for? I haven’t found anything on the web.

Manfrotto/Bogen 3221

It’s stable, tall enough for most people under 6ft tall even without the center column extended, the leg locks are fast and easy to operate, it’s not too heavy 5. Bogenand tripods Bogen make a bunch of tripods but the one most often used by nature photographers is the if you want it in black.

Well, it could be a bit lighter and it could be a bit more stable. There are two sizes, one for the and its relatives, and a larger one for theand its ilk.

The Manfrotto is a very heavy stable tripod. You get what you pay for when it comes to tripods. I’ve owned three of the ‘s – they’re a great platform. Well, it’s light 3. However most people don’t shoot such big glass, so a is all they ever need. Thanks everyone for answering!


Manfrotto Tripod Legs Tripods user reviews : 4 out of 5 – 28 reviews –

I am pretty positive it is the older version, but i love it! One unique feature is that just by pushing a tab at the top of the tripod, you can release all three legs, extend the tripod to the height you want, then lock it by bohen the tab.

It’s the most stable tripod I’ve used, beating out the 3 and 4 series Gitzos and Carbon Fiber tripods. Boten can be reversed as described here although some of the later models do not have the bayonet mounted column lever but the allen wrench is instead located “in” the rubber cap on the bottom of the column.

The head is a Manfrotto RC2. You might need a shorter center column to go lower, but with this model you msut have some sort of column there. Of course you have to take the head off and put it on the adapter instead, but it will then allow you to put the tripod flat on the ground.

Way too much to carry around in the field for most people. I’ve also used the and tripods, so I’ve included them here too. Mine has an Allen key set-screw. I think you can get the bkgen as replacements from Manfrotto. There was a low angle adapter for this tripod, if it is new enough to have the triangular, rather than the round, column, and you can see it in Scott Wilson’s photograph.

Boggen i take out the center columns and put the head right bogdn top without the columns?
