Used Manfrotto 3057 (160) Tripod Head (Hexagonal Quick Release Plate) Bogen
This is a listing for a Manfrotto ("Distributed by Bogen") 3057 heavy-duty tripod head. This head is intended for large, heavy view cameras or any large lens photography where precise deliberate movements are required. It includes a Manfrotto standard hex QR plate, model 030-14, with the 1/4 mounting screw installed. The tripod head itself weighs around 4 lbs, 14 oz. He max load for this head is just under 22 lb.
This head is in mostly very good shape, the pan and both tilt movements are smooth, and the bubble levels look great. You can see some purely cosmetic scuffs on the black finish in a couple of places, and there are some slight cosmetic dings visible if you look closely enough. The only real issue with the head is that the big hand screw that tightens the tilt had a hairline crack in it that i have glued together with epoxy.
It was not a full break but a small break that was so tight it barely took the glue. I would not expect this would be an issue. The newer version of this Manfrotto 3057 is the Manfrotto 160, which is basically identical. Message me with any questions. This item is in the category "Cameras & Photo\Tripods & Supports\Tripod Heads". The seller is "erichaynes" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
