The AC-1341 3-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight 3.3 lb tripod that provides reliable support for any camera and lens up to 11 lb.

The tripod's 3-section aluminum legs and center column extend to a maximum height of 61.8", and when folded, the entire system is a compact 24.8". 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-111 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-111 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

      This isn't a perfect tripod but for the price I have no complaints other than the option of kicking the legs out to get it as low as possible is a little wierd

      Oben Travel Tri-Pod

      By Don

      from Maine

      Comments about Oben AC-1341 3-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head:

      This is a perfect tripod for travel. It is lightweight and collapses to approximately 24 inches. I also really like the removable center post so that I can position it perfectly for a low point of view. It is surprisingly rugged. My 5D Mark II with a battery pack and a 16-35mm lens sits secure on this tripod. The price is very reasonable for this nice little tripod.....

      I will be using this for travel to Florida in the next few weeks and am looking forward to using this for long exposure shots on the warm beaches.

          This tripod perfeclty complemented my entry-level DSLR. It`s light, sturdy, easy to use and has a ton of potential, so you can explore the "tripod terrritory" with confidence.
          Also has a nice bag, which is great for storage and you can quickly throw it in your car for a spontaneous trip.

              Really love this tripod. The only thing I'd change about it is to make the quick release a little easier to operate. Set up and take down are smooth and it gives steady reliable support for my 600 mm lens. Love it!

                I'm a beginner. I bought my first reflex last year (canon 70D) and i have to buy many lens and accessories, such as this tripod; it's lightweight (1,5Kg, ca) but sturdy and its legs have many grades. At the same price there was a manfrotto but with less functions and no ball head. The B&H employee was very great at help. Thank You.

                  This tripod is light and compact, but it can hold up to 11lbs which i think is just enough for beginner/intermediate photographers. I mainly use this tripod with my D3200 which always has a battery grip on. I'm usually a Manfrotto gear head, but I decided to go with Oben this time and I'm glad I did. The quality is great and the price is just right. I would suggest getting this tripod for those who travel quite frequently or just want to carry less heavy gear around. The carry case is not bulky either, it's the perfect size to carry around.

                      I am a hobby photographer. To me this is a great upgrade to the tripod I had before. It is light weight, easy to set up and pretty stable considering how light weight it is, plus you always have the option of hanging a weight from the bottom for even more stability. It's great if you like to move around the camera for different angles, where you couldn't do that as easily with a heavier pro model. Would be great for hiking or nature as the legs are fully adjustable to different heights and angles. I have also used it for a camcorder for Christmas morning. It worked great for that as well.
