    Comments about Velbon Ultra LUXiSF Tripod with PH-353 Large Ballhead:

    I use this tripod for both multi-day backpacking trips in Tasmanian wilderness and as a travel tripod for overseas trips. Superb is the only way to describe it. The trunnion joint legs are incredibly quick to use and facilitate a tripod that packs down to very small size and weighs only 1 kg. The double section centre column and three position leg angles make it ideal for use on rough ground and for low level macro work. The moderately heavy duty ball and socket head is of excellent quality with no creep when tightening. The only negative is that you have to stoop a little as it does not extend to full eye level. However, to achieve that would result in a more flimsy or heavier and bulkier tripod.
