RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod and Oben GH-30 Gimbal Head Kit Overview

Robus RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod

Designed for the Studio, Built to Travel

When maximum stability for a high-load capacity and exceptional stability even at maximum height are require, the RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod, one of a series of tripods from Robus delivers performance to satisfy even the most demanding image-makers.

Robust Construction

  • Regardless of the conditions or terrain in the field Vantage-series tripods boast features that will benefit pros and amateurs alike, both in the studio and on location. RC-5570 extends to over 70 inches high, and will comfortably support up to 55 pounds of gear.
  • Heavyweight rubber sleeves on two legs provide a secure, comfortable and balanced grip under any weather conditions.
  • Designed and built to operate in the harshest of environments, Vantage series tripods stand up to daily use and abuse, providing reliable performance. Made of premium materials, they resist corrosion and grime that would cause other tripods to fail.

Carbon Fiber Legs and Twist Lock Leg Joints

  • At the heart of Robus tripods are the extremely sturdy 10× carbon-fiber tubes that provides a maximum load of 55 pounds, which is enough to support a heavy camera setup with a level of stability that dampens vibrations to reduce camera shake.
  • Large, ergonomic twist lock joints open with a quarter turn to extend to a maximum height of 70.1" or collapse the leg sections quickly.

Aluminum Spider and Interchangeable Top Plates

  • The CNC-machined spider features a lock to loosen the yoke, and a safety pull latch to release the top plate. The anodized spider also features a strap mount and an integrated bubble level for precise leveling.
  • A precision-machined top plate features a smooth anodized finish, a chamfered leading edge for ease of installation, and a 3/8"-16 threaded head mount. It includes a ballast hook to add a stabilizing counterweight in windy conditions, or when working with a top-heavy load.
  • The 75mm bowl is interchangeable with the top plate and mounts into the spider using the same safety pull latch release mechanism, making it possible to change from shooting still to video in just seconds.

All Surface Capable, Multiple Locking Leg Angles

  • Three variable leg angles of 25, 55, and 85° with independent leg spread accommodates uneven terrain, and allows you to shoot at a minimum height of 4".
  • Three different sets of feet are available to accommodate different terrains and surfaces. The standard rubber feet, wide rubber feet, and spikes are all interchangeable via the 3/8"-16 socket at the end of each leg.

RC-5570 Vantage Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod and Oben GH-30 Gimbal Head Kit Reviews

Good tripod, marginal gimbal head ...

By Bob
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-23

I bought the kit of tripod and Oben gimbal head. The tripod is very good quality and very sturdy and easy to adjust. It is slightly heavy, but a great value. The Oben gimbal head is functional, but has a lot of wiggle in the top bearing when loosened to allow the gimbal to work. It wiggles enough that I feel I have to lock it down if shooting slower than 250th of a second.

Highly Recommended

Both tripod and head are very well made and of high quality. Very happy with purchase.

I was skeptical that the Robus legs would handle heavy equipment but I was pleasantly surprised when I put the Kowa TSN-99A with a Canon 1DX mark II on the Oben GH30 gimbal to attach to the tripod. I used a 169 MM QR plate in lieu of the stock Oben plate and it worked flawlessly.

Sturdy setup

I haven't gotten to use it in the field yet but the tripod is very sturdy and robust and plenty tall enough for me. The gimbal head also seems sturdy and its nice that a mounting plate was provided. Nice bag also provided to carry the tripod in and I was even able to fit the gimbal head in as well. There is also a zipper pocket in the bag for tools, extra feet, etc..

One of the reviewers, Shawn, stated, "Had to order the center column later as I could not rotate my camera to vertical in my BH 55 because it would hit the sides of the tripod." He doesn't say what camera he's using. Has anyone using a Nikon D810 in conjunction with the Robus RC-5570 had this problem?
Asked by: James H
The answer to this challenge is to get an L-Bracket for your D5. With the L-Bracket and the BH 55, it will be easier, quicker and give you more flexibility to place your camera in the vertical position or any position for that matter.
