OConnor 60L Carbon Fiber Tripod System with 150 mm Bowl
The OConnor 60L Carbon Fiber Tripod System with 150 mm Bowl supports tripod heads that have a 150 mm leveling ball. The legs feature 2-stages and weigh only 9 pounds, however they can support 209 pounds and extend from a minimum height of 22.8" to a maximum height of 60.6" when using the included mid level spreader.
The mid level spreader and individually adjustable legs allow you to set up a stable position on rocky, uneven terrain and even on stairs. The mid level spreader avoids the stresses and instability that a ground spreader can cause when working on uneven surfaces. When working situations require it, the spreader can be detached individually from each leg and the dual spikes at the end of each leg provide a solid anchor point when working on soft ground. The removable rubber feet snap onto the dual spikes for working inside or on slippery surfaces.
The system also features OConnor's smart quick clamping system that provides a visible clamp lockdown so you know your legs are secure. A small accessory hook under the 150 mm bowl allows you to hang various available tools and items such as a small set bag or foam rubber pad for shouldering the legs during camera position changes.
