The Oben CT-2300 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a sturdy, professional support for any DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. With a load capacity of 11 lb and a generous maximum height of 57.7", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.
The tripod features ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg. Because legs are non-rotating, both of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist. This enables extremely fast setup of the CT-2300. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections.
With its rigid yet lightweight 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CT-2300 tips the scales at only 2 lb. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for sturdiness, so the CT-2300 is ready to survive the rigors of professional use.
The CT-2300's rapid center column extends with a twist of the butterfly knob. For protecting your camera when the column is retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper under the center-post collar. Steel locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten a camera head to it more securely.
Pull-in/push-out positive leg locks allow you to set the positions of the three legs independently at three different angles. This allows you to shoot from low angles or on uneven terrain. For stability on softer terrain, the CT-2300 features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.
For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column is easily reversible. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the CT-2300's center column.
