Product Highlights
  • 11 lb Load Capacity

The Oben AC-1441 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head provides reliable support for DSLRs, point-and-shoot cameras or video cameras up to 11 lb.

The tripod's three-section legs are fabricated from high tensile strength aluminum. It rises to a maximum height of 61.6" with the center column fully extended and folds down to a compact 21.3" for transport. Flip locks on the legs facilitate rapid setup and break down. Three leg angles: normal (80°), low (55°) and extra low (24°) are available via angle adjustment tabs at the joint of each leg. You can reverse the column with a twist of the butterfly knob or split it in two and use the short column for macro and low angle shooting as low as 8.3" from the ground. Any combination of leg angles can be combined to accommodate uneven terrain, stairs or obstructions. A built-in bubble level helps you square up your compositions. For extra stability the center column employs a spring-loaded counterbalance hook.

The included BA-111 ball head features a single-action knob that controls its rotation and 360 degree panning while a robust ball-locking mechanism secures it solidly. The head's four bubble levels ensure accurate panoramas. The BA-111's built-in quick release comes with a camera plate that features a standard 1/4"-20 screw and a retractable, removable video pin to provide additional stability for camcorders. Since the head is removable, locking screws underneath the collar thwart torsion when re-attaching. The tripod comes with a carry case and shoulder strap for storage and transport.

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 is a great tripod for an amateur photographer. It's light and very stable. I would definitely recommend this. I have attached a Nikon D7100 with 70-200 f/2.8 VR II and was very happy.

          Comments about Oben AC-1441 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head:

          I got this tripod trying to get a good tripod for travel or carrying during several hours. I think this is the perfect combination of weight and sturdiness I was looking for. Extended hight is more than I needed and the folded size is perfect for luggage.
          Very sturdy for my gear, set's up very easy.
          Ball head is very easy to use, it holds my camera in position nicely. I would liked a ball head that had independent lever for horizontal panning but it was over my budget.
          Bottom line, great value, great quality tripod.
          I just had it for a few weeks but seems to be durable.

              seems to be a great tripod, very sturdy. easy to set up. took some playing with and viewing of youtube videos to figure out how to use all features for a novice photographer that hasn't worked with a lot of tripods before, but once that was figured out, it was easy to adjust. love the carrying case and bubble levels.

                    This is a very solid, sturdy tripod. I used it in downtown Pittsburgh up on a windt bluff and hung my gear bag off the hook to steady the tripod. No visible motion was apparent in the photos. I love the carry bag and the provided strap too! THe flip locks are a bit stiff, but I'm assuming they will loosen over time. The head takes aq bit of getting used to: only one area in which you can flip the camera veritacl, though. It's a good investment at a great price.

                        Here's to targeted ads. I mean it. This tripod showed up in an ad and it just so happened that I have a fotog friend who used one during our last shoot. an impressive and simple to use and setup tripod, the AC-1441 is also lightweight, sturdy, strong and quite adjustable. the head is very versatile and allows for 360x180-degree flexibility. the only drawback for me is no pointed feet for natural terrain. (I did not see an option for the metal-pointer feet.) Still a great buy, IMHO.

                          Great tripod at a perfect price. Easy to level and the quick clips work slick. I love the fact you can turn the reciever upside down for close up photography and hang a weight bag on it for stability. Perfect.
