The Oben CC-2320L 3-Section Carbon Fiber Lateral Tripod with BB-2 Ball Head Kit from B&H pairs the very lightweight, versatile carbon fiber CC-2320L lateral tripod with an extremely sturdy ball head that pans 360° and tilts 90° to portrait orientation. The combined system weighs just 4.9 lb and supports camcorders, point & shoot, and DSLR cameras (even as they're outfitted with long lenses) that weigh up to 26.45 lb.
The tripod & head combination reaches a tall maximum height of 72.2" and enables positioning from just about any angle. When the center column is extended past the chassis, it can be tilted smoothly across a 180° arc and firmly locked into position at any point along the way. The tilting column also swivels, so the camera has a virtually full sphere of position points from which it can shoot.
The BB-2 ball head features an Arca Swiss-style quick-release clamp for the included camera plate, and it offers three separate knobs for pan lock, tilt lock, and tension control. This "division of labor" allows you to perform tasks such as panoramic photography, which requires fine adjustments to the head's pan while the tilt remains locked. Featuring extremely strong ball locking, the head on its own supports loads up to 33 lb. The included carry bag has plenty of room to hold the folded tripod with the head attached.
