Oben CT-2491 overview

  • 1Description

This Oben CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod and GH-30 Gimbal Head Kit from B&H provides the ability to support, balance, and maneuver large telephoto lenses with fluid movement on both vertical and horizontal axes. Together, the tripod and head are suitable for sports and wildlife photography, with a combined load capacity of 39.6 lb and a maximum height of 81.5".

  • Oben CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod

    The CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Oben is an extremely sturdy support for any DSLR, mirrorless or point-and-shoot camera or camcorder. With a load capacity of 39.6 lb and a maximum height of 72.5", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.

    The tripod features ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg. Because legs are non-rotating, all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist. This enables extremely fast setup of the CT-2491. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections. 

    With its 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CT-2491 is relatively lightweight (3.50 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum alloy for further strength.

    The CT-2491's rapid center column extends with a twist of the butterfly knob. For protecting your camera when the column is retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper under the center-post collar. Steel locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten a camera head more securely.

    Pull-in/push-out positive leg locks allow you to set the positions of the three legs independently at three different angles. This allows you to shoot from low angles or on uneven terrain. For stability on softer terrain, the CT-2491 features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

    For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column can be split into two sections with the provided hex key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For a faster method, the center column is also easily reversible. These features are especially ideal for macro and close-up photography. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the center column.

    Ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg are non-rotating so all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist enabling fast setup
    Legs with four sections tend to collapse shorter for easier portability. The CT-2491 folds to 23.3".
    Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw fits almost any head
    Bubble level on tripod chassis
    Center column is grooved to prevent its rotation
    Split center column for low angle set-up
    Spring-loaded metal counterweight hook at the bottom of the center column
    Integrated aluminum loop for attaching an optional shoulder strap
    Retractable metal spiked feet provided stability on ice and soft terrain
    Included padded carry bag features dual heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket, and extra room to accommodate a head

Oben CT-2491 reviews

CT-2491 Carbon Fiber Tripod and GH-30 Gimbal Head Kit is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good price point just wished Gimbal Head is better! I like the tripod a lot because of the maximum�without having to use the center column. I have no complaint on this one. The GH-30 is very cheap at $150 with the $100 off. The panning and vertical movements are very tight for a Gimbal head. I squirted some penetrating oil in the gap but it doesn't seem to help. It would have been a 4-star rating, but I took one star off because of the tightness of the moving parts.
