Product Description

The Manfrotto 438 Compact Leveling Base offers a great alternative to larger leveling bases for traveling or out hiking in the field. Unlike larger leveling bases, the Manfrotto 438 features a side clamp instead of a handle underneath, allowing you to get your tripod very low to the ground.

Why You’ll Love Manfrotto 438

  • When using a leveling base as part of your configuration, you no longer have to struggle with trying to level your camera with frustrating, minute tripod leg adjustments. Simply set up the tripod and easily level your camera lens using the attached clamp and integrated bubble level.
  • With the Manfrotto 438 leveling base, you can mount your Wimberley® Head, tripod ballhead, or other tripod head to the wide platform for solid support. For further stability, Manfrotto 438 also features 3 anti-twist set screws.
  • Rated to support up to 33.1 lb (15 kg) load capacity.
  • Only 2″ (5 cm) tall.
  • Provides 10° of movement.
  • Weighs only 1.4 lbs (650 g).
