Oben AC-1441 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head

The Oben AC-1441 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-111 Ball Head provides reliable support for DSLRs, point-and-shoot cameras or video cameras up to 11 lb.

The tripod's three-section legs are fabricated from high tensile strength aluminum. It rises to a maximum height of 61.6" with the center column fully extended and folds down to a compact 21.3" for transport. Flip locks on the legs facilitate rapid setup and break down. Three leg angles: normal (80°), low (55°) and extra low (24°) are available via angle adjustment tabs at the joint of each leg. You can reverse the column with a twist of the butterfly knob or split it in two and use the short column for macro and low angle shooting as low as 8.3" from the ground. Any combination of leg angles can be combined to accommodate uneven terrain, stairs or obstructions. A built-in bubble level helps you square up your compositions. For extra stability, the center column employs a spring-loaded counterbalance hook.

The included BA-111 ball head features a single-action knob that controls its rotation and 360 degree panning while a robust ball-locking mechanism secures it solidly. The head's four bubble levels ensure accurate panoramas. The BA-111's built-in quick release comes with a camera plate that features a standard 1/4"-20 screw and a retractable, removable video pin to provide additional stability for camcorders. Since the head is removable, locking screws underneath the collar thwart torsion when re-attaching. The tripod comes with a carry case and shoulder strap for storage and transport.

A spring-loaded counterweight hook is located at the bottom of the center column. The column can be separated into two parts to give you a short column for low angle and macro work
Leg cushions on two legs provide a firm grip in cold or wet weather
Two included hex keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
Padded carry bag provides a snug fit for the tripod/head combination and features two heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket with a zipper, and a shoulder strap
Angle adjustment locks keep legs at the chosen angles
Center column is grooved to prevent rotation
Angled rubber feet for maximum contact with the ground
Tripod features reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw to fit almost any head

Is the waist strap/belt removable?
Asked by: Mitch
The waist belt is not removable but it is hide-away. So you can tuck the strap into the back if you do not wish to use it.

question

Hi, the description states that the bag can house a DSLR, 70-200mm, 3 Lenses, Flash but the 2 pictures showing the inside seem to show that the bag is able to accommodate a DSLR with 70-200mm attached, 4 or 5 additional lenses and a flash. Can you please confirm, is the description not accurate or the pictures are misleading? Thank you,Tony

question

I have a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary lens. Will it fit either attached to the Nikon D5300 or without it?
Asked by: Thomas G.
The internal camera and lens compartments are completely customizable, so you can open the center to allow for a long lens. Your sigma is 10.2 long according to the specs... With my canon rebel in the top, I have 10.5-11 left to the bottom of the bag for a lens.
