      Comments about Oben CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

      Very lightweight and portable tripod. I used it when hiking in Moab and worked well and very stable. However I noticed that when the narrow legs are extended there is less stability especially when it is hot (>90' in Moab). I was using a heavy DLSR (Nikon D800 with FX lenses). Despite this, very pleased with purchase!

      Comments about Oben CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

      The vast majority of the time I am using wide angle to normal lenses on a D800 after a long hike so this tri-pod is perfect for that and plenty stiff for that. What it is not good for is long lenses (300mm+) as it gets too close to the weight limit and what is a good tri-pod becomes a mediocre tri-pod.

      One thing to be aware of in higher temps 90+F, is the carbon fiber or resin heats up enough on the black legs that the stiffness deteriorates and I have to stay away from the bottom two sections of the legs. With the bottom sections extended, the legs become more flexy but keep it to the top two or three and it's solid.

        I've had this for a few weeks and am very happy with it. Its light, appears well constructed, easy to setup, and very solid. It will take a few years to see if its also durable.

          It's a tripod, but it's sturdy and light. The build is high quality.

            Comments about Oben CT-2461 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs:

            It is as beautiful to look at as it is to use. Very smooth fit and finish. I've found it to be just the right height for me with the attached (optional) BB-2 ball head and I am 5'10" tall. Very sturdy, and easy to operate, sets up very quickly. I like the 4 section legs, it is small and light enough that I don't mind hiking with it.
