The Compact Light is the lightest tripod in Manfrotto range and is the natural connection between a mini and full size tripod. It has been perfectly designed to fit all Compact System Cameras and thanks to its compact dimensions and feather-light weight, it is born to be with you always. With the universal 1/4 " camera attachment and the new quick wheel you can attach and detach your camera in seconds. The built-in ball head and the single adjustment knob are perfect for quick positioning of the camera and for easy locking all movements. The Compact Light is ideal for Compact System Cameras but can be used with a huge variety of digital devices up to 1.5kg/3.3lbs such as the iPhone (with KLYP+), all types of Compact Cameras and Bridges. If using an entry level DSLRs with the Compact Light we recommend using only standard kit lenses to maintain the same level of performance that you will experience with lighter cameras. Please consider that a lot of semi-professional and professional equipment exceeds these requirements. If you own a Sony Nex 5R/5T you have certainly noticed that these particular models have a very small surface area around the mounting thread. For this reason, in each Compact Light box, you will find a special adaptor that will increase the surface area of these specific cameras in order to better grip the tripod and obtain maximum stability.
