        Comments about Induro ELC-2 Short Center Column:

        This shorter center column has three set screws to secure the ballhead to the tripod (the long center column that comes with the tripod only has one). High quality and secures the ballhead nicely. Allows you to get your tripod nice and low.

          to replace the long center column for low angle shots. It should have come standard with the tripod.

            I bought this shorter column to replace the longer column in my CT214 tripod for the times when I want to shoot very low to the groung. It allows me to get as low as I need to and it really works great!

                  Useful for getting the camera close to the ground while mounted on the tripod. Light weight, therefore, not an extra burden in the backpack.
                  Recommended.

                    Comments about Induro ELC-2 Short Center Column:

                    The center column that comes with the induro CT214 CF tripod doesn't allow you to take advantage of the low angle when you fold the legs out completely: you have to raise the column. The shorter column works perfectly for this. I very rarely extend the center column higher than a few inches, preferring stability over extension, so the extra height loss is of no importance to me. I wish the shorter column were standard since it's much more functional.

                      by using the short center column..the tripod is more stable. You can get lower to the ground with this short column.

                        Comments about Induro ELC-2 Short Center Column:

                        The ELC-2 short column works with the Induro CT213 carbon fiber tripod. When the tripod legs are splayed out to the fullest extent, the tripod's collar is about 7" above the substrate. Thus, the approximatly 18" standard center collumn, which is supplied with the tripod, is rendered unsuable; it does not disassemble into two pieces like my old Velbon does. You have to replace it with the optional short column if you are going to use the tripod for low-angle shots or macrophotography.

                        What can I say, it works! It's sturdy and you can easily store it in the tripod case that comes with the Induro CT213.

                        Comments about Induro ELC-2 Short Center Column:

                        This replacement center column is perfect for utilizing the tripod's low level flexibility. It is machined from the same materials and has the same structure as the original column - and the bottom spring loaded hook from the long column threads right into the new short one.
                        Another minor change is about a 2 ounce savings in weight.
                        Lastly - it's now possible to carry the tripod over one's shoulders with the legs splayed and resting on both shoulders without getting poked in the back of the head with the end of the longer column.
                        If you don't want to cut off the original column then this is the way to go.

                            With this short center column my Induro tripod just became even more. It allows bringing the camera very close to the ground, which is great for macro photography. The only way this setup could be improved is if the tripod pouch would have a loop or two to keep the long center column from flopping around...

                            Worth it!

                              Comments about Induro ELC-2 Short Center Column:

                              Maybe you think $50 is a lot of money to spend on a short center column, but it is wel worth it if you want to create photographs from a more interesting perspective. If all you intend to do is setup your tripod at eye level and make pictures from a perspective that we're all used to seeing then i don't think this product is for you. But, if you like to make photos from interesting angles and new perspectives then I absolutely recommend this product. I am able to use my Induro CT214 tripod in all different configurations because I have this short center column. Obviously, the biggest advantage is that you can get very low to the ground with this.

                              works as expected!

                                replaces the longer center column so the tripod can get closer to the floor.

                                  does the job, couldn't be any shorter. Great for the low macro shot without the aggravation of pulling the column out and flipping in over (which also mounts the camera upside down.) worth the money.
