The A1692TB0 Travel Angel II Triple Transfunctional Aluminum Tripod Kit from Benro is a multi-functional camera support system that features aluminum alloy tripod legs and a dual action ball head. It can convert into a full size monopod, a compact monopod and a walking stick with wooden knob and integrated compass. With a maximum load capacity of 17.6 lb, the tripod can support most any camera, including a full size DSLR. Five-section, anti-rotation legs with rubberized twist locks offer fast set up and their weather-resistant design maintains a secure adjustment. The maximum height with the center column extended is 61.6". The legs can be independently locked into place at three different angles for shooting on uneven surfaces and an included short center column allows for ground-level low-angle shooting.
This Travel Angel II Kit includes a B0 Double Action Ball Head with PU-50 Arca-Swiss quick release plate. Made from magnesium alloy components the ball head has separate pan and position control and a separate drag adjustment control knob. The head has an integrated bubble level.
By removing the center column of the tripod and screwing it into one of the legs, the Travel Angel II can convert from a tripod into a full-size monopod and by removing the ball head and installing the included wooden knob with integrated compass and hand strap, it becomes a walking stick. Both rubber feet and stainless steel spiked feet are included and can be screwed into the legs for use on varying surfaces.
The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180º for a more compact, easy-to-carry system that protects the head during transport. A foam grip on one leg offers a comfortable and warm place to hold the tripod and a carry bag with shoulder strap is included.
