The versatile and portable CT-3535 Folding 5-Section Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod with BE-208T Ball Head from Oben is a compact and lightweight kit that sets up quickly, folds up neatly into its own carry bag, and offers a variety of options for the photographer on the go.

The Oben CT-Series 5-section tripod reaches a maximum height of 51.6" via the integrated twist locks, which also permit fast and effortless height adjustment. Each leg can be positioned independently at three locking angles (22.5°-24°, 50°, or 80°) to ensure stable support when shooting on uneven terrain. Integrated spiked feet, beneath the non-slip rubber feet, provide steadiness on soft ground, grass, or sand. The adjustable center column is equipped with a spring-loaded weight hook for added stability in windy conditions.

This tripod boasts several options for low-angle shooting, including a separate, reversible low-angle center column that enables shooting at a height of just 8.6". For additional adaptability, one leg of the tripod can be removed and used as a monopod.

Oben's BE-Series dual-action ball head is included with the tripod to match its portability and performance. It features a dual-lock design that allows independent adjustment of the ball and panoramic base. The integrated bubble level ensures accurate camera alignment with the horizon and an Arca-type compatible quick release plate permits effortless mounting and dismounting of your camera.

Enhancing its portability, the entire kit weighs just 2.5 lb and folds down to a easy-to-transport 12". A shoulder strap and custom carrying case are included for portability and added protection.

5-Section Tripod
The lightweight and durable aluminum tripod features 5-section telescoping legs secured by ergonomic twist locks.
Three Locking Angles
The legs can be set at three different locking angles of 22.5°-24°, 50°, or 80° for stable support on uneven terrain. The leg-angle adjustment lock also allows the legs to be folded up to a compact size for transport or storage.
Spiked Feet
Removing the tripod's rubber feet exposes the spiked feet that provide steadiness and won't slip or move when placed on soft ground, grass, or sand.
Two-Piece Center Column
The two-piece adjustable center column has a telescoping section secured by twist locks for extra height and easy adjustment.
Reversible Low-Angle Center Column
The low-angle center column is ideal for low-angle photography. Reversing the center column makes it possible to mount your camera extremely close to the ground.
Integrated Monopod
One leg can be removed and in seconds becomes a monopod that extends up to 53".
Dual-Action Ball Head
Oben's BE-Series dual-action ball head boasts smooth and effortless operation and features separate locking knobs for independently adjusting the ball and panoramic base.
Arca Swiss-Type Quick-Release
The BE-Series ball head includes an Arca-type compatible quick release plate for ease in mounting and dismounting your camera.
Bubble Level
The ball head has an integrated bubble level to assure accurate camera alignment with the horizon.

Perfect!!

Perfect size, good enough height, solid construction.

Great travel tripod

I am not a pro, I don't need a 50lbs tripod, I just wanted something that is light enough to put in a backpack or carry-on. I can use it on my desk, the monopod is great and light I can use my GoPro with it for some flexibility and other creative shots. I have a prima photo tripod that is quite similar in weight and specs, just didn't have the monopod which is what I wanted.

Compact with great features

I needed a smaller tripod that would fit in my pack and this one is it. A bonus is the adjustable angle feature for the legs allowing for help with the close up work I love to do. The load capacity at nine pounds allows me to use any of my camera and lens combinations. The maximum height is a little short at 51 inches but not a major problem.

Great for travel

I got this because I constantly leave my bigger tripod home on short trips because I can't be bothered. This is very light, easy to pack because of the compact size. When you get it, play around with it, open and close a few times so you get the hang of it. The bonus is the monopod which is easy to assemble. I tried another one that I need to take a screw with me always so I can attach it, so this was much easier, nothing is needed. Nice price for a CF tripod

Poor design

By Carol

This came highly recommended for travel. However the first time I had a need to use it, it was too late to return. The first and only time I used it, when I extended the legs, the locks would not hold and kept slipping and the lowest extension kept falling off. Hard lesson learned and am out $140.00.

Solid little tripod.

Gets the job done for an affordable price. I wish the legs locked differently. I found I am not a big fan of the screw to tighten method. The tripod stands a little short as well, not really an issue for what I am doing , but worth noting. Otherwise no complaints. Packs small and fairly light. Seems pretty sturdy so far. Nice tripod for hiking if you don't want to break the bank for something better.

Meets my expectations so far

I like it so far. It's light weight and sturdy. Haven't used it extensively yet bu I love the versatility of it. Being able to lay the legs out flat to be able to get low shots was the driving factor for me. The fact that it so easily converts to a monopod is just an added bonus.

Nifty lightweight tripod, great customer service

Got this tripod for backpacking trips. Really has everything you want for the weight/price. It's a little short, but for my purposes, perfect. A few pieces broke but the customer service was awesome, very quick to help you.

question

Thanks to all who responded to my question: Are the feet removable/replaceable? I had already reached out to Oben and they responded just a few minutes ago as follows:Hello Robert,The spiked feet can be removed on the CT-3535/BE-208T .We do sell replacement rubber feet,Regards,YossiGradus GroupFrom the many users who answered no , I must assume that it is not obvious that the spikes can be removed. I guess I will order and see what the tripod looks like. Hope this helps others.
Asked by: Anonymous
I looked through the photos of this product and the spikes sold on the Oben website and they didn't seem like the same spikes. After contacting Oben with this question, they replied that they were NOT replaceable. Hello,Thank you for your interest in Oben products.The spiked feet on the CT-3535 are integrated into the leg and not removable / replaceable. Thank you,Oben Customer service

question

Can the carbon fiber handle the BT226T head and more weight?
Asked by: Michael
The ball head is stronger than the carbon fiber tripod, so the tripod would be the weakest link in that combination and you would need to work within the limits of it's 9 lb maximum weight capacity.

You can but must weigh down the tripod. Also the maximum height of this tripod is too short I believe.
