The CF300X Black Diamond Carbon Fiber Tripod pairs the CF3 legs with the BH5X ball head. Together, the tripod extends from 23.1" to 61", weigh 3.8 lb, and can hold up to 8.8 lb. The 4-section legs are adjusted and secured via twist locks, and can be set to one of three angle positions, with a split center column to allow the legs to reach their widest angle. A weight can be hung from the column's ballast hook to add stability, and a bubble level on the chassis helps ensure your horizon will be straight.
The included BH5X ball head is an Arca-type compatible head that features tension control and separate locks for the ball and the 360° panning. A 90° notch in the head allows you to easily switch from landscape to portrait orientation, and another bubble level helps to align your camera with the horizon. The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera's 1/4"-20 tripod socket.
