The AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock) from Oben is a sturdy, professional support for any DSLR, mirrorless, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. With a load capacity of 17.6 lb and a maximum height of 66", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.

The tripod's flip locks, which enable the extension and securing of the leg stages, are user-adjustable. By using a supplied Allen key, the user can tighten two points on each spring-loaded flip lock to safeguard their continued reliable performance.

With its anodized aluminum construction, the AC-2361 is durable. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum alloy for further strength.

The AC-2361's rapid center column extends with a twist of the butterfly knob. For protecting your camera when the column is retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper under the center-post collar. Steel locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten a camera head more securely.

Pull-in/push-out positive leg locks allow you to set the positions of the three legs independently at three different angles. This allows you to shoot from low angles or on uneven terrain. For stability on softer terrain, the AC-2361 features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column can be split into two sections with the provided Allen key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For a faster method, the center column is also easily reversible. These features are especially ideal for macro and close-up photography. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the center column.

Leg warmers on two legs mitigate the effects of extreme heat & cold and provide comfortable grip

        Comments about Oben AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock):

        I'm a photo enthusiast that loves to do night photography, both land and sky, and this tripod is perfect for that job. I also do macro photography and the multi-position legs at different angles allow me to get those low shots that were very difficult for me previously.

                This was exactly what I wanted. Perfect height and great construction. She's a little heavy to hand carry all day, would be better on a backpack or over the shoulder, but shes very sturdy and with the center column hook that you can put your bag on, she won't go anywhere!

                First Tripod

                By Terry

                from Pomeroy, OH

                Comments about Oben AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock):

                This is my first good tripod. I had to buy a new one because my old one could not hold a new lens that I had purchased. The legs are sturdy and can handle my new lens easily. I could not afford a carbon fiber one, so I purchased this one. I am using it while on vacation at the beach taking night pictures.

                Comments about Oben AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock):

                I've been looking for a good tripod for awhile and this one had everything that I wanted. Good load capacity, hook for sand bags, spikes, grips, and just overall rock solid. It had more features than comparable manfrotto legs. The bag is really nice as well. My only knock is that at over albs. it can be a bit cumbersome to lug around with other equipment. It's always best to do your research and make sure this is will work for you. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.

                El tripié se siente muy fuerte y alcanza mucha altura. Siento que me falta un poco del movimiento que ofrece el Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro, en cuestión del tubo central, puesto que ofrece un poco más de oportunidades para colocar la cámara, pero este tripié costo menos y es de muy buena calidad, al menos en mi opnión es 100% confiable.
