The CT-2361 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Oben is a sturdy support for any compact DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. With a load capacity of 17.6 lb and a maximum height of 60", 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-2361. 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-2361 is both lightweight (the tripod weighs just 2.40 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further strength.

The CT-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 CT-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 hex 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 all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist enabling fast setup.

      Comments about Oben CT-2361 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I love this tripod! I needed something strong, yet light and easy to set up in a hurry. Despite having one more leg section than my old tripod, I can set this one up faster. I like the screw tighteners and the ability to hang something from the center post to give me more stability, should I need it.

      Comments about Oben CT-2361 Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      I have been hauling around a tripod that starts out as aluminum and ends the day as cast iron and this is perfect for me. Solid quality and I am extremely happy with it.
