Manfrotto Adds Carbon Fiber to Entry Level M-Y Tripods

Manfrotto introduces the 732CY, a carbon fiber tripod which joins the company’s popular M-Y family of entry-level tripods. First unveiled in January 2009, the M-Y family was designed to help first-time photographers achieve better results when shooting with their point-and-shoot digital cameras, lightweight DSLRs and compact camcorders.

By introducing a carbon fiber tripod to the M-Y family, Manfrotto says they are now giving entry-level shooters the ability to experience the benefits of carbon fiber technology without having to worry about breaking the bank.

With its high-performance carbon fiber construction, the new 732CY will boast the highest payload among its aluminum M-Y tripod siblings, with the ability to support a 7.7 pound payload. Additionally, the 732CY’s 100% carbon fiber tubes are constructed using Poltrustion, an advanced manufacturing process that maximizes performance, torsion resistance and reliability, according to Manfrotto.
