Thanks so much for watching!
It is versatile, lightweight and portable with gorgeous italian styling. The Manfrotto PIXI is the perfect mini tripod for Compact System Cameras (CSC). It has been designed to satisfy the needs of those consumers that are looking for a support that is lightweight, portable and easy to use. The PIXI is great for achieving hard to get video shots while keeping your camera steady. Close the legs to use it as a comfortable grip to capture great videos that stand out from the crowd. The new push-button mechanism enables you to position and lock the ball head in one rapid, intuitive movement. Pushing the button releases the ball joint to move freely. When the button is released, the ball is locked automatically in the selected position. PIXI has a minimal Italian style and is manufactured from stainless steel and Adapto for high quality and a tactile finish. With this solid construction, it provides a secure base in every situation and the rubber feet guarantee a stable and slip-free purchase on any surface.
PIXI has been developed for entry level DSLRs fitting these basic requirements:
• Body: maximum weight of 650g/1.4lbs
• Focal length: maximum 85mm (standard non-professional lens)
• Total equipment payload: maximum 1kg/2.2lbs

The 293 carbon tripod is built to be transportable without compromising on stability. It uses a “next-generation” carbon tubing: an innovative composite tube with optimized fibre angles that provides consistent advantages over aluminium tubing in terms of rigidity, lightness and stability. The tripod legs use a 4-section construction to help to minimize the folded length for a more compact tripod ideal for travelling photographers. All tubing is three-faceted for greater resistance to torsion, while the legs’ tension-adjustable locking levers (also in aluminium) can be tightened to counteract any effects of wear and aging, keeping the tripod fully functional throughout its long life. Two-position leg angle settings make low-angle shooting possible, and a rapid centre column adds flexibility and extends the min-max height range. An ‘anti-shock’ rubber collar at the top of the centre column protects the camera if the extended column is left unlocked and drops accidentally. Included is a three-way photo head also specifically designed for compactness and transportability, yet allowing accurate, precise framing and solid support of medium-heavy camera equipment. The head’s distinguishing feature is its unique mechanism for ‘folding’ the handles when the head is not in use. With the handles folded and running parallel, the head’s dimensions are dramatically reduced, so it takes up less space when packed, and is easier and less cumbersome to carry, on or off the tripod.
The quick-release head is made from Adapto, a special lightweight polymer which cuts down the weight, yet offers high mechanical resistance for sturdy support. The head has three levelling bubbles (on for each axis of rotation) which make it easier and faster to get straight, well-framed images in-camera, thereby saving time in post-production. The head supplied in this kit is interchangeable: other heads can be fitted to the tripod top disc’s 3/8″ universal attachment.
