The Velbon Ultra MAXi Mini Aluminum Tripod with QHD-51Q Ball Head is an excellent support for a DSLR or other camera for low-angle photography, table-top use, or other situations that demand a flexible, professional support but not a whole lot of height.

The sturdy little tripod reaches a maximum height of 18.8" when its five aluminum leg sections and two center column sections are fully extended. That might not sound like a lot for a five-section tripod, but consider that its folded length is a very tight 7.7".

Featuring Velbon's patented Trunnion Shaft system, the Ultra MAXi Mini tripod has only one twist lock per leg – each section collapses fully into the section immediately above it, resulting in the optimal ratio between extended length and folded length. One twist unlocks the entire leg, and a second twist locks it.

The included QHD-51Q ball socket head attaches to the tripod via a standard 1/4"-20 thread. Constructed of die-cast aluminum, the head includes a QB-3B quick-release plate. A single knob enables the unlocking and locking of the ball head's pan and tilt movements.

Ball head allows you to set your camera at any angle – including 90° tilt – with fast setup changes enabled by the single locking knob
Splittable two-section center column is ideal for low-angle/macro photography – minimum height is just 5.35"
High-quality five-section aluminum legs are durable and extremely stable

        Comments about Velbon Ultra MAXi Mini Aluminum Tripod with QHD-51Q Ball Head:

        Everything is good, nice, solid, fast and quality but only the ball head is not 100% precision, if you want to shot the picture with parallel to something (like the table) it's difficult to adjust for quickly. If you upgrade to the hi-end head ball it will be OK like a PRO!. I love it!

          this is a compact and lightweight, perfect for travel, you can set it up in just a few seconds.
          quick release plate is small and can be tricky to attach to the head sometimes especially if you can't see it, like at night for example, but other then that you have very good, small tripod with ball head and quick release

          Comments about Velbon Ultra MAXi Mini Aluminum Tripod with QHD-51Q Ball Head:

          While I like the idea of a disappearing tripod that turns into something really small when not in use their is such a thing as too small. I think the overall design is clever its just not what I'm used to. If it was a gauge larger and more robust I might trust it more but a tripod needs to be able to build a stable base that is at least as tall as a table. Otherwise why not improvise with an ad hoc local surface of comparable height?
