  • Rotator Horizontal Weight/Stress Limit

    Nick,

    How much weight can the rotator support in this picture? It's harder to rotate with the stress added in a horizontal position and I don't want to find the limit on my own. ;-)

    Thanks,
    Phil

    I have no idea. it is not designed to do so. Use it at your own risk.
    Indeed, I think Manfrotto will advise your not to use their tripod in this way. I am not sure how much torque the top disk can withstand.
    what is your purpose in this configuration?

      Think you're on your own there Phil! When it does snap, be sure to tell us at what point for reference!

        Hi Phil,

        to me it looks like a NN Rotator? I have done test with Gitzo horizontal arms two combine for around 90 cm. The system bended down and I needed counter weights. For me personally, and I have done several tests with poles and horizontal arms. In this position also the manfrotto N300 rotator moves in itself to the side. May I ask why you like to use this construction? I would only add a low price camera on top. And a counter weight as well. Just think of wind etc.

        In case you really want or have to use it like this, it might be safer to just use a rotator without click options.
