The AC-1331 3-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-108 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight (3.3 lb) tripod that provides reliable support for any camera and lens up to 8.8 lb.

The tripod's 3-section aluminum legs and center column extend to a maximum height of 59.6", and when folded, the entire system is a compact 24.5". Flip locks on each leg enable extremely fast deployment and retraction of leg stages. Three leg angles are possible, and pull-tab locks secure the legs in their notches. The legs' angles are independently adjustable to accommodate shooting on uneven terrain. At the widest leg angle, the tripod sits extremely close to the ground to facilitate low-angle shooting. The tripod's feet feature rubber tips which are great for shooting on slippery or hard surfaces.

The tripod's rapid center column extends with a twist of the wingnut locking knob. For protection when it's retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper that protects the center-post collar. Locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten the head securely to the chassis. By unscrewing the spring-loaded hook at the bottom end, the center column becomes removable and reversible, for a second method of achieving extremely low-angle shots. The center column's hook holds a counterweight, in case you need additional system stability.

The BA-108 has a single-action knob that allows you to unlock all axes of movement in one fell swoop, so you can quickly orient your camera properly, retighten the knob, and return to shooting. The ball-locking mechanism is remarkably strong for reliably stable performance.

The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw, and easily snaps and locks into place on the head.

Two bull's eye bubble levels will allow you to align your frame with the horizon, in both portrait and landscape orientations. The BA-108 features a 90° groove for tilting the camera to portrait orientation.

This tripod also includes a fitted, padded carry case with a removable shoulder strap, two heavy-duty zippers, and an interior zipper pocket. A tool clip with two hex wrenches for adjusting the center column and the leg joints is also included. It snaps onto any of the tripod legs for easy access.

A spring-loaded counterweight hook is located at the bottom of the center column. The column can be separated into 2 parts to give you a short column for low angle and macro work
Leg cushions on 2 legs provide a firm grip in cold or wet weather
Two included Allen keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
Padded carry bag provides a snug fit for the tripod/head combination and features two heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket with a zipper, and a shoulder strap
Angle adjustment locks keep legs at the chosen angles
Center column is grooved to prevent rotation
Angled rubber feet for maximum contact with the ground
Tripod features reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw to fit almost any head

        Comments about Oben AC-1331 3-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-108 Ball Head:

        The tripod is light and easy to carry but seems very sturdy. I had a bit of trouble with the quick release on the head but discovered it was because I was using a plate on the bottom of my camera the hold both the tripod quick release head an my camera strap. It made for a very tight fit. Now I take the camera strap off and the quick release works just fine, I have a Nikon D7000 with a fairly heavy zoom lens and often use an external flash. The tripod holds the entire unit very securely. I'm very pleased with the tripod--especially for the price.

          Tripod is lightweight, well balanced and sturdy. The height of the tripod is very good too. I carried the tripod on mountain hikes in the Cascades with no problem and found the setup to fast. It also held up to the winds

            Comments about Oben AC-1331 3-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-108 Ball Head:

            After buying a new DSLR I figured it was time for an upgrade in the tripod department. After doing some research I decided to go with the Oben AC-1331 with the BA-108 head. I have to say that so far I've been Impressed with it. When it is set up it is completely rigid and there is no play in any of the leg joints. The ball head is smooth and progressive with the tension adjustment. Snug it down lightly and you can position the camera where you want it and then lock it down. The materials the tripod are made from are of a good quality. The only possible concern long term are the lever locks for controlling the leg extensions are plastic but having said that they appear to be solid enough. All in all this seems to be a quality product and I would buy from Oben again.
