Oben AC-2361L overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes the Oben AC-2361L Lateral Tripod and BE-126T Ball Head. The tripod is a sturdy support with a load capacity of 17 lb, and a maximum height of 72.1", including the head. The lateral tripod features a tilting, swiveling center column that enables flexible positioning for macro photography and other uses.

Engaging the lateral adjustment lever frees the tilting of the center column once it's been extended past the chassis, which becomes possible by pressing the button at the column's bottom to disengage the safety bolt. Once extended, the column can tilt from its original 0°, straight-up-and-down orientation, to a 180° upside-down orientation - with possible stops everywhere in between, including a 90° lateral position. Twisting a knob on the chassis locks and unlocks the 360° swiveling of the center column and its upper collar.

The tripod's flip locks, which enable the extension and securing of the leg stages, are user-adjustable. By using a supplied hex key, the user can tighten each flip lock to safeguard their continued reliable performance.

When it's not being used in its lateral mode, the AC-2361L's rapid center column functions like most tripods, extending after a twist of the knob on the upper collar. The tripod's center column can also be removed from both the chassis and the upper collar so that it can be reversed. 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 center-post collar enable you to fasten a camera head more securely.

Push/pull tabs 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-2361L features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

The included BE-126T ball head is a lightweight aluminum ball head that features an Arca-type compatible quick-release system. It has a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement.

The BE-126T's multiple knobs help make taking panoramic photos simple by allowing you to pan a specific number of degrees while keeping the head's tilt position locked. In fact, the BE-126T features degree markings around its circumference to aid in that task. A notch in the ball head allows you to quickly change between portrait and landscape orientation. This travel ball head has a slim profile.

The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw, and is secured in place with an Arca-type clamp. A locking knob controls the opening and closing of the aluminum clamp simply and reliably. Two safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released when adjusting the plate fore and aft. Multiple bubble levels help ensure that your camera will be level with the horizon.
