Product Highlights
  • 11 lb Load Capacity
  • 65.5" Maximum Height
  • Weighs Just 4.6 lb
  • Swiveling Center Column Tilts 180°
  • All Anodized Aluminum for Max Durability
  • Cast Aluminum Chassis
  • Adjustable Flip Locks for Leg Sections
  • Retractable Spikes in Feet

The Oben AC-2310LA 3-Section Aluminum Lateral Tripod Legs 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 65.5", 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 once you press a button at the column's bottom to disengage the safety bolt. Once it's extended, the column can tilt, with no ratcheting, from its original 0°, straight-up-and-down orientation all the way over 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 twist locks enable the extension and securing of the leg stages.

With its anodized aluminum construction, the AC-2310LA 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-2310LA'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.

For stability on softer terrain, the AC-2310LA features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

Center column travels throughout nearly a complete sphere of possible positioning, so you can take steady shots from virtually any angle
Leg warmers on two legs mitigate the effects of extreme heat & cold and provide grip
The two included Allen keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
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 within the upper collar
Integrated aluminum loop for attaching a shoulder strap (not included) or a counterweight for added stability in windy conditions
Rugged rubber tips with retractable spikes for shooting both indoors and outdoors on any terrain
Included padded carry bag features dual heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket, and extra room to accommodate a head

      I spent a LOT of time comparing tripods and heads, trying to find something that didn't have any big negatives but without spending a lot. I think I picked the right one.

      Seems to be very solid and well built. I've used it for 2 short walks. A little heavier than I expected, but I was upgrading from a simple lower end unit, so I guess that should be expected.
      Operates smoothly, but the legs have a little resistance coming out. Has both rubber and spiked feet attached, unlike some other models I looked at. Switch just by spinning them.

      Really like the flexibility of the center column, able to be set at any angle. Used it for some just-above-the-water stream shots.

      Would have been nice to have a carrying strap clip lower on the legs - it has only 1 clip near the top, so the strap must be looped, leaving the tripod unbalanced on my shoulder.

      All of the leg clamps seemed very tight and I was afraid they would break when closing them, so I had to loosen them all a little with the supplied allen wrenches. Don't know why they had to build this so it requires 3 different sized allen wrenches for different screws. Would have been more convenient if they were all the same size. Also comes with a padded bag.

      So far very happy with the purchase.

      I got this tripod for macro work with mirrorless camera and sometimes with Nikon D7100 w/o battery grip and small lenses. I wouldn't use it with heavier equipment. If you don't have another heavy duty tripod, I would recommend to wait and spend more money on a more professional tripod and save your money by not getting this one.

            Steady and comes with every thing you need (except for the ball head). Replaces a number of old flimsy tripods I've used in the past. I read the specs and I knew what the weight was, but if I were to do it over again, I would have spent the extra money for the carbon fiber model.

                It works just like I had hoped. I have already used it to photograph straight down over a display table with the center post extended horizontally. I also photographed hummingbirds in the yard. I couldn't ask for more and it cost less than the Manfrotto.

                I've yet to really use the tripod but it so far has been good and performs very easily. A bit heavy and longer than my liking but much more sturdy than what I have and feels durable and steady. Time will tell if it was a wise purchase but the price is right and comparable items are much more $$$.

                    I purchased this as a backup unit after a recent mishap left me with no tripod and I can only say that I wish I had bought this set of legs sooner as after using them only a few times they quickly became my everyday legs, replacing my far more costly Gitzo legs.

                      Has more flexibility for some of those challenging shots students want to get.

                        Does everything a tripod should do and does it with ease. Well made. Can't think of a feature I would like to add.
