Product Highlights

The CC-2491 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs from Oben is an extremely sturdy support for any camera or camcorder. With a load capacity of 39.6 lb and a maximum height of 71.3", 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 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CC-2491 is relatively lightweight (4.10 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum alloy for further strength.

The CC-2491'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 CC-2491 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.

The two included Allen keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components

    Comments about Oben CC-2491 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

    I bought this tripod for a just finished trip to the mountains in Wyoming. It performed perfectly. It was light enough for me to use it with my backpack, yet it was stable enough to withstand the gusts of wind that the mountains dish out as fall is heading toward winter there even with my 600mm lens attached. Its other achievement was that it knocked down to a size small enough to meet the current photographer unfriendly airline standards for carry on luggage. Oh, by the way, did I mention that it performed perfectly AND at a wonderful price?

    Comments about Oben CC-2491 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

    I upgraded from my aluminum Oben and immediately noticed a huge difference in the sturdiness of this tripod, given that I was using my Canon 5D Mark 3, which was too much for the aluminum version. Very sturdy, not too heavy, I love the flip locks, very smooth, all around great. If I had one gripe, is that it is a big and bulky tripod compared to my old aluminum one, but that's to be expected - just be aware if you're upgrading from a tiny travel tripod. It is sizable.
