Oben CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs

You Pay: $319.95
Product Highlights
  • 17.6 lb Load Capacity
  • 62" Maximum Height
  • Lightweight - Weighs 2.45 lb
  • 6x Carbon Fiber Legs & Center Column
  • Cast Aluminum Chassis
  • Non-rotating Twist Lock Legs
  • Retractable Spiked Feet

The CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs from Oben is a sturdy support for most DSLRs, any mirrorless or point-and-shoot camera or most camcorders. With a load capacity of 17.6 lb and a maximum height of 62", 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, all three 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-2461. 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-2461 is lightweight (2.45 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further strength.

The CT-2461'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-2461 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.

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.
Legs with 4-sections tend to collapse shorter for easier portability. The CT-2461 folds to 19.5".
Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw fits almost any head
Bubble level on tripod chassis
Center column is grooved to prevent its rotation
Split center column for low angle set-up

        Comments about Oben CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

        Very lightweight and portable tripod. I used it when hiking in Moab and worked well and very stable. However I noticed that when the narrow legs are extended there is less stability especially when it is hot (>90' in Moab). I was using a heavy DLSR (Nikon D800 with FX lenses). Despite this, very pleased with purchase!

        Comments about Oben CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

        The vast majority of the time I am using wide angle to normal lenses on a D800 after a long hike so this tri-pod is perfect for that and plenty stiff for that. What it is not good for is long lenses (300mm+) as it gets too close to the weight limit and what is a good tri-pod becomes a mediocre tri-pod.

        One thing to be aware of in higher temps 90+F, is the carbon fiber or resin heats up enough on the black legs that the stiffness deteriorates and I have to stay away from the bottom two sections of the legs. With the bottom sections extended, the legs become more flexy but keep it to the top two or three and it's solid.

          I've had this for a few weeks and am very happy with it. Its light, appears well constructed, easy to setup, and very solid. It will take a few years to see if its also durable.

              It is as beautiful to look at as it is to use. Very smooth fit and finish. I've found it to be just the right height for me with the attached (optional) BB-2 ball head and I am 5'10" tall. Very sturdy, and easy to operate, sets up very quickly. I like the 4 section legs, it is small and light enough that I don't mind hiking with it.
