The Oben AC-2300 3-Section Aluminum 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 58.5", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.
The tripod's flip locks, which enable the extension and securing of the leg stages, are user-adjustable. By using a supplied Allen key, the user can tighten two points on each spring-loaded flip lock to safeguard their continued reliable performance.
With its anodized aluminum construction, the AC-2300 is both lightweight (the tripod weighs just over 3 lb) and heavy-duty, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further strength.
The AC-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 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 AC-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 AC-2300's center column.
