Bogen/Manfrotto View Tripods
The Manfrotto 701HDV,055CXV3 View Carbon Fiber Tripod is their top-of-the-line digiscoping tripod.
The 701HDV fluid video head offers an updated design, which has been created for improved ergonomics with locks and knobs that allow for a more solid grip and better control, better fluidity thanks to improved internal fluid cartridges, a double pan-bar rosette and a bigger sliding plate to optimize the position of the camera considering its center of gravity. All this makes it a great head for digiscoping, especially for those using dSLRs.
The 055CXV3 legs weigh a mere 3.92 pounds and are more rigid than previous models. The 100% carbon fiber tubes provide the best rigidity and an extremely light weight. The aluminum center column includes a low angle adapter which can be used as a short column. Foam rubber leg wraps on two legs provide a bit of cushioning when the tripod is on your shoulder and insulation for your hands in extreme hot or cold weather. The 3-faceted center column means your scope or camera will stay pointed in the same direction when you raise or lower the head.
