The AC-2341L 3-Section Aluminum Lateral Tripod Legs from Oben is a sturdy, professional support for any DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. With a load capacity of 11 lb and a generous maximum height of 65.8", the lateral tripod features a tilting, swiveling center column that enables infinitely flexible positioning for macro photography and other uses.

Engaging the lateral adjustment lever frees the tilting of the center column once it's been extended past the chassis, which becomes possible by pressing the button at the column's bottom to disengage the safety bolt. Once extended, the column can tilt, with no ratcheting, from its original 0°, straight-up-and-down orientation, to a 180° upside-down orientation – with possible stops everywhere in between, including a 90° lateral position. Twisting a knob on the chassis locks and unlocks the 360° swiveling of the center column and its upper collar.

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 anodized aluminum construction, the AC-2341L is ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further durability.

When it's not being used in its lateral mode, the AC-2341L's rapid center column functions like any professional tripod, extending after a twist of the knob on the upper collar. The tripod's center column can also be removed from both the chassis and the upper collar so that it can be reversed. 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 center-post 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 AC-2341L features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

Center column adjusts throughout a complete sphere of possible positions, so you can take steady shots from virtually any angle

    Comments about Oben AC-2341L 3-Section Aluminum Lateral Tripod Legs:

    Great tripod that is very sturdy. The lateral arm is a square tube so it is very solid and can't swivel. I was able to fully extend the center column at 90 degrees with my 3 pound camera and ball mount attached without the tripod tipping over but it wouldn't take much more weight to tip it (just don't extend the arm all the way).

    The lateral center support/arm gives you great flexibility to do almost anything. The only drawback is the arm is not 2 pieces like the normal AC-2341 so when the legs are extended out to near ground level, you still have this 16 inch arm sticking up. Of course the arm could be extended out laterally but it would be nice to have both options available for use.

    There is a loop on the tripod base for adding extra weight if needed. It would also be nice to have one on the center column/arm so one could add counterweight when the arm is fully extended laterally with a heavy camera on it.

    I was really impressed when I opened the carrying bag and seen a small zippered pouch for the shoulder straps. I rarely use a shoulder strap but I like knowing I have one, it's even better knowing it is always with the bag. The entire bag is very well made.
