The CT-2481 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs from Oben is a sturdy support for any DSLR, mirrorless or point-and-shoot camera or most camcorders. With a load capacity of 26.4 lb and a maximum height of 66.2", 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-2481. 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-2481 is relatively lightweight (3.10 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum alloy for further strength.

The CT-2481'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-2481 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

      Comments about Oben CT-2481 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

      It's so much lighter than the aluminum version, and twist locks work great. The CTM-2500 monopod uses the same twist lock mechanisms.
