Stable, light weight aluminium tripod with a weight of only 1.6 KG - including the quick-release ball head and quick-release plate.|
This compact and light camera tripod is made with excellent workmanship, almost completely from aluminium, and absolutely shake-free. It can be adjusted from 38 cm to 132 cm height, and the leg segments measure 23/19/16 mm in diameter. Including he head it weighs only 1.6 Kg. The legs can be adjusted from normal "spread" to an extra-wide stance in order to bring the tripod head lower to the ground. To make this adjustment, just push the silver stoppers into the "up" position before pulling the legs out.
The ball head is very solid and holds even heavy cameras. However, although the little tripod is sufficiently stable for larger cameras, we wouldn't recommend it for a medium-format studio camera. Of course, it would be possible to attach a panorama head or similar. The ball head has a quick-release plate with a quick-release and extra locking mechanism.
The top side of the quick-release plate is rubber coated, and has a standard 3/8" stud. The ball head is easily adjustable with a quick-release knob which can also be repositioned for better grip. The ball head is attached with a standard 1/4" stud and can be easily exchanged with any other standard tripod head.
