The CT-2331 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs from Oben is a sturdy support for any compact DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. With a load capacity of 8.8 lb and a maximum height of 54.8", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.

The tripod features ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg. Because legs are non-rotating, both of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist. This enables extremely fast setup of the CT-2331. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections.

 With its 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CT-2331 is both lightweight (weighs just 1.65 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is aluminum alloy for further strength.

The CT-2331'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 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.

Ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg are non-rotating so both of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist enabling fast setup.
Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw fits almost any head
Bubble level on tripod chassis
Center column is grooved to prevent rotation
Split center column for low angle set-up
Spring-loaded metal counterweight hook at the bottom of the center column
Integrated aluminum loop for attaching a shoulder strap
A removable rubber cap on each leg provides stability on flooring and stable ground and underneath, a metal spike offers stability on ice and soft terrain.
Included padded carry bag features dual heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket, and extra room to accommodate a head

          The tripod was very functional and worked great in my garage. My first trip to the field, however, one of the twist locks broke.

            Brought this as a backpacking/travel tripod and can't be more pleased with it. I mounted a Vanguard BBH-100 head on it and it is light weight, compact, yet strong enough to support my Nikon D800 with a varity of lenses. The tripod does have limitations, but is perfect for what I need it for. It comes with a carrying case that has both handles and a sling that protects it and works great for carrying it on our back or onto an airplane.

              Comments about Oben CT-2331 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

              I purchased this tripod after 35 years of use from another. The carbon fiber construction makes it sturdy but light, perfect for taking along on my photo shoots! The ball head is so easy to use as compared to my old pan/tilt head and setup is very fast. The price was right and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

              Comments about Oben CT-2331 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

              The Oben CT 2331 is almost exactly what I needed. At 1.65 lbs it is light enough to backpack with and hold my Meopt S2 spotter. It's the only full height carbon fiber tripod I could find under two pounds now that slik and manfrotto have discontinued theirs. Fit and finish is great and if it weren't for the folded length and need for a tool to take the head off it would get five stars from me. I would recommend it and have to my friends.

                Comments about Oben CT-2331 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

                Ive been using this tripod for everything you'd expect. Low light, slow shutter speeds, and just all around stabilization. Super light, and portable. the carrying case is perfect. it fits my tripod legs (with the head attached) and my monopod (with the head attached) all at the same time. plus i rigged it up to strap right on my backpack. The shoulder strap also works really well as long as you have a side bag, but with my full backpack its fairly useless (just the shoulder strap that is). Great solid design.

                Comments about Oben CT-2331 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

                I was looking for a light weight but sturdy tripod that was rugged enough to take hiking. The Oben 2331 fit the bill. It weighs only 1.65 lbs but is sturdy enough to handle my large DSLR camera and professional level lenses. Highly recommend use of the counter weight hook on the bottom of the tripod's center column when using heavier lenses or in windy conditions. The only complaint I have is that an allen wrench tool is needed to convert the center column to take low to the ground shots. Would've received 5 stars if it was easier to convert for low level shots
