Product Highlights
  • Maximum Height: 68.3"
  • Load Capacity: 13.2 lb
  • 4 Sections
  • 360° Panning and Dual Axis Tilt
  • Quick-Release System with Safety Lock
  • 5 x Bubble Levels

The AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head from Oben is an ideal tripod head combo for photographers looking for individual control on all axes. The sturdy 4-section aluminum legs can hold a camera or camcorder up to 13.2 lb, and will extend up to 68.3".

The legs are non-rotating, and have flip locks on each leg to adjust the height of the tripod. Each leg is independently adjustable, and they can be locked securely at three different angles. The tripod's feet feature rubber tips which are great for shooting on slippery or hard surfaces.

The center column features a twist lock that frees up its extension and retraction. For protection when it's retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper that protects the center-post collar. At the bottom of the center column is a spring-loaded ballast hook that allows you to attach a counterweight for extra stability. The detachable hook doubles as a stopper for the center column, which can be removed and reversed for low-angle shooting.

The PD-117 head allows independent camera adjustment on the horizontal and vertical planes as well as 360° panning. Two locking handles control the front-to-back and side-to-side tilt, and a thumb screw locks and unlocks the panning motion.

The quick-release system includes an RP-20 plate with a video pin, and a safety lock on the release lever, preventing accidental release of the camera. Two bull's eye levels, and three tubular levels ensure your camera will be level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.

This tripod also includes a fitted, padded carry case with a removable shoulder strap, two heavy-duty zippers, and an interior zipper pocket. A tool clip with two hex wrenches for adjusting the center column and the leg joints is also included. It snaps onto any of the tripod legs for easy access.

      Comments about Oben AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head:

      I have used this tripod for both photography and video. Meets all my expectations. Very solid and its ability to be used at almost any angle possible is a big plus. Panning is very smooth for the video side of things. Looking to get a new set up that will be a bit heavier than my equipment now. No worries that the tripod won't be able to handle it

        Comments about Oben AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head:

        Needed to upgrade my tripod and found Oben line at B&H. As an enthusiast I have found Oben to provide very good quality and value. Very happy with the solid build and features of the Tripod. Great height adjustments with out needing to extend center pole. Pan / Tilt head is smooth and works well for video and stills. May buy an Oben ball head for landscape shooting. Very happy with Oben..!

        Comments about Oben AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head:

        It is a very practical and well built tripod. It is very stable, the first head half days hard but becomes loose and goes well. For the price it's excellent construction. Criticism, the bag does not come with handles, which made you lose a washer at night. Then the strap is very practical for hiking. and fast to assemble. The coupling system of the camera is practical and fast.

          Comments about Oben AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head:

          This is a tripod for intermediate photographers. If you want a professional tripod, this probably wouldn't be your first choice. That said, it's well made, and simple to use. It's about 5lbs. Pretty sturdy, looks nice ;0)
          I was hoping it was more professional quality so I exchanged this model.
          I WOULD recommend this tripod to a photographer that was on a tighter budget and didn't need a "professional" level tripod. It is a good solid piece of equipment.

              Fantastic tripod, But one thing bothers me. I cannot get it in the carry case without unscrewing one of the handles. May be I am doing something wrong, but otherwise a nice sturdy tripod.
