Oben CT-2491 overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes the Oben CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod and BC-139 Ball Head. The tripod is an extremely sturdy support for any DSLR, point-and-shoot, or mirrorless cameras. With a load capacity of 38 lb and a maximum height of 74.8" including the head, 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, all three 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-2491. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections.

The CT-2491's rapid center column extends with a twist of a 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.

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 additional stability on softer ground, the CT-2491 also features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column can be split into two sections with the provided hex key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For another method, the center column is also easily reversible. These features are especially ideal for macro and close-up photography. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the center column.

The included BC-139 ball head is a durable aluminum ball head that features an Arca-type compatible quick-release system. It has a large locking knob with a tension control screw to give you maximum control of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement.

Its 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 BC-139 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.

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.

  • Oben CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod

    The CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Oben is an extremely sturdy support for any DSLR, mirrorless or point-and-shoot camera or camcorder. With a load capacity of 39.6 lb and a maximum height of 72.5", 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, all three 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-2491. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections. 

    With its 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CT-2491 is relatively lightweight (3.50 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum alloy for further strength.

    The CT-2491'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 CT-2491 features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

    For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column can be split into two sections with the provided hex key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For a faster method, the center column is also easily reversible.

    Ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg are non-rotating so all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist enabling fast setup
    Legs with four sections tend to collapse shorter for easier portability. The CT-2491 folds to 23.3".
    Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw fits almost any head
    Bubble level on tripod chassis
    Center column is grooved to prevent its rotation

  • Oben BC-139 Ball Head

    The BC-139 Ball Head from Oben is a durable aluminum ball head that features an Arca-type compatible quick-release system. It has a large locking knob with a tension control screw to give you maximum control of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement.

    The BC-139's multiple knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple, for instance, because you can pan a specific number of degrees while keeping the head's tilt position locked. In fact, the BC-139 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.

    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. One bubble level on the clamp, and another on the locking knob, both ensure that your camera will be level with the horizon.

  • Oben 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing

    This 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 Reducer Bushing from Oben allows you to convert any standard 3/8"-16 thread for the insertion of a standard 1/4"-20 screw. This way you can, for instance, mount a professional-style head with a 3/8"-16 threaded hole on a tripod that has a 1/4"-20 screw.

    The bushing is a replacement part for Oben heads, and it will work with all Oben monopods and tripods also.

Oben CT-2491 reviews

CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod and BC-139 Ball Head Kit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy with this Was excited to get this but am not at all happy. The tripod is stiff and difficult to close, some of the leg sections and have to be nearly forced to close. The ball head is also difficult and stiff. Compared to my Benro this is a waste of money. What I do like is it is tall enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect item!!! I found this tripod to fit my needs perfectly. I would buy this product again.
