The tripod legs are made of sturdy aluminum alloy, and together with the head they reach a maximum height of 59.5". Each leg is composed of four sections, which can be adjusted and securely locked into place with the lever locks found on all segments, and a side-pull selector enables quick setup with both hands. An Easy Link attachment at the top portion of the leg section allows you to attach external accessories, and rubberized feet avoid skidding and help keep the tripod stable on uneven terrain. An integrated hook is also included so you can add a weight and increase the stability of your tripod when shooting in more difficult conditions.

is there a way to adjust friction (tension) on the pan and tilt or is it just really a lock / release?
Asked by: charles
The pan and tilt tension can be adjusted by simply tightening or loosening the lock. Its not considered a friction control but it is a way to cheat and change drag.
