This is a Manfrotto 270CSU Chrome-Plated Steel Stand. It has four sections, and three risers. If the surface is uneven, as in a hill or stairs, extend and lock the third "lazy" leg to give the proper support without having to add apple boxes. Its load capacity is 29.76 lb (13.5 kg) at maximum extension at a 6° incline. On level ground, at minimum extension, its capacity is 88 lb (40kg).
This stand is fitted with a universal mount with a Junior 1-1/8" (28mm) socket plus a Baby (5/8") removable, reversible stud with 1/4"-20 and 3/8" threads.
Double Braced Leg Base
Provides extra stability giving the stand more strength
