Oben CT-3586 Overview

  • 1Description

The CT-3586 Carbon Fiber Tripod and Triple Action BZ-226T Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight five-section support, which has twist locks that open with just a quarter turn, and each section extends along with the one-section center column to a maximum height of 62.5". With its three variable leg angles, it allows you to splay the legs out and replace the regular center column with the included low-angle center column, so the tripod can go to a minimum height of 8.5".

To store or transport the tripod, the legs fold in the reverse to a compact 16.6". Furthermore, one leg is detachable and can convert into a working monopod with a maximum height of 65.2". Each rubber foot retracts back to expose a metal spike that can be wedged into softer terrain for extra support and stability.

The Arca-type BZ-226T ball head, which includes the QR-20 quick release plate, can support cameras that weigh up to 27 lb, and it easily positions the camera at a 90° angle because of the cut notch on the side of the head. There are three knobs on the ball head; one to control the movement of the ball, the second allows you to rotate and pan a full 360°, and the distinguishable knob in the middle of the other two knobs enables you to dial-in more tension to the ball. Thus, the drag of the ball is intensified and less creep is involved if more weight is added.

5-Section Tripod Legs
The lightweight carbon fiber telescoping legs open and close by turning the twist locks a quarter turn, and the legs fold in the reverse to a compact 16.6" tripod for storage or transport.
Variable Leg Angles
With the tripod's variable leg angles, it can adjust to three angles and splay its legs out completely to a minimum height of 8.4".
Two Center Columns
The rapid center column, which is reversible, extends and locks into place via its twist lock. An included low-angle center column allows you to get those macro shots that are close to the ground.
Integrated Monopod
The tripod's detachable leg converts into a working monopod with a maximum height of 65.2".
Triple-Action Ball Head
The Arca-type BZ-226T ball head, which includes the QR-20 quick release plate, can support cameras that weigh up to 27 lb. The head features three knobs, one to control the movement of the ball, one for the pan, and the tension control knob to add or decrease drag on the ball.
Bubble Level
The integrated bubble level on the ball head enables your to accurately align you horizon within the camera's viewfinder.
Spiked Feet
The retractable rubber feet expose spikes that can be driven into softer terrain to add stability and rigidness to the tripod.

    Oben CT-3586 Reviews

    CT-3586 Carbon Fiber Tripod and Triple Action BZ-226T Ball Head is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tripod, just what I needed! After the move from my Nikon D3200 to full frame Nikon D750, with new Full Frames lenses my older tripod a d pistol grip just didnt handle the increased weight. The  Oben CT-3586 Carbon Fiber Tripod and Triple Action BZ-226T Ball Head works perfect and really steady, as I get more Full frame lenses, and telescopic lenses this will work for me for quite a long time.  Shipped fast by B&H, great service, product !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Tripod Very happy with my first real tripod.  Its a bit heavier duty than I probably needed, but its still fairly light due to the carbon fiber.  Needed the extra height it provides, due to my stature.  Has already proven to be very stable even in fairly heavy winds.  For the money, Id say its great bang for the buck for an enthusiast amateur photographer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOLID TRIPOD This is a solid piece of equipment. Very sturdy and light weight.   This is my first Oben product and after reading reviews on other models I was concerned about the ball head  not locking position,  but no concerns here. Everything is easy to adjust and once tightened down there is no movement and you dont have to bear down on the knobs to lock in.  The legs tighten/lossen with just a 1/4 twist and hold position with no problems. Everything on this product works as advertised by the manufacture. Well done Oben. Highly recommended. As a side note, do I wish I could afford a top of the  line Really Right Stuff tripod and ball head?  Of course, but Iam not there yet and until then the CT-3586 will do just fine. And just think of the $$$ I am saving to buy other equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy without being too heavy My current quiver of tripods all do well enough with small cameras, but for my relatively heavy Nikon Coolpix P1000 none would hold position.  I needed a tripod designed to hold alot more weight. Just received this yesterday so I cannot say its proven the test of time.  However my first impression is positive. It is sturdy at a low cost in weight, being mostly made of carbon fiber; important since I want to carry it around.  It readily locks and holds position with my Nikon.  It can extend to hold the camera at my eye-level (Im 6 3) which I appreciate. I also appreciate the features I wasnt prepared for. The way it folds up to short length. It will fit my suitcase nicely.  The way the center column can be reversed to hold a camera an inch above ground.  The extra short-column piece that comes with the kit.  The way one leg can be used as a monopole.  Thoughtfully designed, Id say.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one to beat! Im a professional photographer that travels all over the world and I need a lightweight tripod that is well built and reliable.  The Oben CT-3586 easily outperforms every other compact tripod Ive tried by a mile.  It will hold 27 pounds and easily supports both my mirrorless and medium format digital cameras when Im traveling.   I love the ease of adjustability, featherweight and good looks of the Oben.  The legs are a snap to position and extend and the ball head is silky smooth.  It stands more than tall enough for me and easily adjusts to just a few inches off the ground.  The Arca style plate of the the Oben is my preferred mount and makes the BZ-226T head compatible with my L brackets from Kirk.   The CT-3586 is my first choice for travel but is so good that it will get more than a little use when Im not on the road as well. If youre looking for do it all lightweight tripod this is it! [I received this product in exchange for my honest review]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod I was amazed as how good the quality of this tripod was.  I felt it is very well built and yet it is still fairly light, obviously due to the carbon fibre.  The maximum height is ideal for me.  I would certainly recommend this tripod and the Ballhead which came with it is very good, a great load capacity and an infinite amount of adjustments it is capable of.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple + Sturdy I travel a TON for my blogging career and often times Im traveling alone. In the past, Ive spent $100, $200, even $300 to hire a local photographer in whatever city Im visiting to ensure I get great content to use on my social platforms. But now that I have this Oben Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod its a SERIOUS game changer.  This thing is light enough to have on me for on-the go, yet sturdy enough to stand alone (and brave the wind, big win!) and be my one and only photographer. I took the Oben CT-3586 with me for a shoot in University City Philadelphia, to my familys home in Allentown, PA, and I am planning to take it with me to my upcoming trip to Manhattan!  The best part, besides its ease of use, is the stability. I own two other tripods and neither of them even come close in comparison to this one. Oh and its important to say this tripod has some serious height which I really appreciate. There is nothing more frustrating when you want to get an eye-level shot and the legs of the tripod just dont extend enough.  Id buy this tripod myself and I certainly recommend it to all!  [I received this product in exchange for my honest review.]
