The Geo N535D Tripod from Velbon is a solid carbon fiber support that can hold most cameras and lenses under 8.82 lb. Lightweight at 4.25 lb, this tripod can reach heights up to 66.9" and shrink as low as 11" — providing a wide range of creative possibilities.
The 3-section telescoping legs collapse into themselves and can be secured with twist locks. This brings the tripod's folded length to a convenient size of 24.4" tall.
A removable, two-part center column has a hook at the bottom that can be used for additional stability when operating at an extreme height with heavy gear or in adverse conditions.
