The versatile and portable CT-3535 Folding 5-Section Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod with BE-208T Ball Head from Oben is a compact and lightweight kit that sets up quickly, folds up neatly into its own carry bag, and offers a variety of options for the photographer on the go.

The Oben CT-Series 5-section tripod reaches a maximum height of 51.6" via the integrated twist locks, which also permit fast and effortless height adjustment. Each leg can be positioned independently at three locking angles (22.5°-24°, 50°, or 80°) to ensure stable support when shooting on uneven terrain. Integrated spiked feet, beneath the non-slip rubber feet, provide steadiness on soft ground, grass, or sand. The adjustable center column is equipped with a spring-loaded weight hook for added stability in windy conditions.

This tripod boasts several options for low-angle shooting, including a separate, reversible low-angle center column that enables shooting at a height of just 8.6". For additional adaptability, one leg of the tripod can be removed and used as a monopod.

Oben's BE-Series dual-action ball head is included with the tripod to match its portability and performance. It features a dual-lock design that allows independent adjustment of the ball and panoramic base. The integrated bubble level ensures accurate camera alignment with the horizon and an Arca-type compatible quick release plate permits effortless mounting and dismounting of your camera.

Enhancing its portability, the entire kit weighs just 2.5 lb and folds down to a easy-to-transport 12". A shoulder strap and custom carrying case are included for portability and added protection.

5-Section Tripod
The lightweight and durable aluminum tripod features 5-section telescoping legs secured by ergonomic twist locks.
Three Locking Angles
The legs can be set at three different locking angles of 22.5°-24°, 50°, or 80° for stable support on uneven terrain. The leg-angle adjustment lock also allows the legs to be folded up to a compact size for transport or storage.
Spiked Feet
Removing the tripod's rubber feet exposes the spiked feet that provide steadiness and won't slip or move when placed on soft ground, grass, or sand.
Two-Piece Center Column
The two-piece adjustable center column has a telescoping section secured by twist locks for extra height and easy adjustment.
Reversible Low-Angle Center Column
The low-angle center column is ideal for low-angle photography. Reversing the center column makes it possible to mount your camera extremely close to the ground.
Integrated Monopod
One leg can be removed and in seconds becomes a monopod that extends up to 53".
Dual-Action Ball Head
Oben's BE-Series dual-action ball head boasts smooth and effortless operation and features separate locking knobs for independently adjusting the ball and panoramic base.
Arca Swiss-Type Quick-Release
The BE-Series ball head includes an Arca-type compatible quick release plate for ease in mounting and dismounting your camera.
Bubble Level
The ball head has an integrated bubble level to assure accurate camera alignment with the horizon.

    CT-3535 Folding Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod with BE-208T Ball Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for this weight and price I went to the B&H store to check out all the carbon fiber tripods in person after doing alot of online research. This tripod and head has the best weight, price and feature combination. I have a stronger non-carbon fiber Manfrotto that I would use when weight is not an issue, but I will use this one for most field work or anytime I need to fly with a tripod, because this can fit in a suitcase. I did some shooting with a heavy DSLR and lens in very strong wind on a beach and noticed that this tripod had some movement. By blocking the wind with my body and making sure that the tripod feet were firm in the sand I was able to minimize the problems, and the images turned out fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revised Review I complained in an earlier review that the tripod slipped unless you really cranked down on the clamps. I was contacted by an owner's representative and they sent me a replacement because they thought my original unit was defective. I received the new unit 2 days later and WOW!!! What a difference. The new unit tightens very easily and is very sturdy. Not only do I give 5 stars to this tripod now, but to the manufacturer as well for their customer service and speed of resolution.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be ready to crank on it I bought this travel tripod for an upcoming trip based on it's size and the weight it is rated to carry. Unfortunately, I extended the legs and column, mounted my DSLR and a short zoom lens, and the legs started to slide and the ball head tilted. This tripod and head are rated for a 9lb load of gear and it had trouble carrying my DSLR and a short zoom. NOW, I cranked down on all the knobs and it carried the load, but I cranked on them so hard I was afraid of stripping the threads. This is probably a decent tripod for a smaller mirrorless body, but avoid it for a DSLR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent travel tripod for a mirrorless or light DSLR The CT-3535 Folding Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod with BE-208T Ball Head is a fantastic option for travel, IF you use a mirrorless or light DSLR kit! I use it with the Fujifilm X-System (X-Pro 2 with several Fujinonn XF lenses, from the 23 f/2, 16-55 f/2.8, 90 f/2, to the 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 zoom), and it handled everything with ease. Tips for achieving optimum sharpness: Use with center column as low as possible, epecially with the longer lenses. Use the 10-second self-timer option to negate any camera movement or shutter vibration. Use the electronic shutter option on your camera if possible. Obviously confirm that all leg and ball head locks are tight. If you do all the above, this superb tripod will yield the optimum sharpness possible for your particular camera/lens combination. Plus, it folds down to 12 2/8, and is quite light, making it perfect for travel, airline carry-on, hiking backpacks, etc. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel tripod Every since I got in to photography I have been using a DSLR and Gitzo Tripods. �Oben is not up to that standard for sure, but this tripod is still a solid buy. � I bought this tripod specifically for my iPhone X. �For this purpose, it really works great! �On a recent trip to Maui I was able to get a really nice time lapse of the Haleakala Sunrise, some great portraits, slow-exposures of waterfalls and some decent landscapes. It is light, well built, and stable for my iPhone X. �Aside from not being as easy to extend the legs as a Gitzo (the twist locks are just not as easy to open/close), I like it a lot and can see myself using a lot going forward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again Tripod fantastic!!! I got it for traveling, perfect, 1ft long, ultra light, best ball head, with quick release plate, counter weight hook, spike feet, even monopod option! The padded case with handle is great. But, (yea there is a small one). If the zipper opening was just 1 longer. To get the tripod into the case easily. This would be a absolutely Perfect System!!! Still its the Best for light weight, travel, tripod system.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware of bad copy I like the compactness and the functionality of tripod. The quality of ball head included is not bad. Movement is smooth with rich functionality.�Lengthening the leg needs more twists for the leg to be able to be pull out if compared with other brands. Overall, tripod feels dense and heavy although it weighs 1130 grams only. The bad news is the bag opening is too small, super hard to take out and put back. Another issue is i received a bad copy, when the leg is positioned to 80 degree, one of the leg cannot lock properly and always slip out on slight pressure.
