Induro ELA-2 overview

  • 1Description

The Induro ELC-2 Short Center Column replaces the standard column on the Carbon and Carbonflex series-2 tripods. This allows you to take full advantage of the variable leg spread on these units, so that you are not inhibited by the length of the column as to how low you can go.

    Induro ELA-2 reviews

    ELC-2 Short Center Column is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! Maybe you think $50 is a lot of money to spend on a short center column, but it is wel worth it if you want to create photographs from a more interesting perspective. If all you intend to do is setup your tripod at eye level and make pictures from a perspective that we're all used to seeing then i don't think this product is for you. But, if you like to make photos from interesting angles and new perspectives then I absolutely recommend this product. I am able to use my Induro CT214 tripod in all different configurations because I have this short center column. Obviously, the biggest advantage is that you can get very low to the ground with this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent alternative to a hacksaw! This replacement center column is perfect for utilizing the tripod's low level flexibility. It is machined from the same materials and has the same structure as the original column - and the bottom spring loaded hook from the long column threads right into the new short one. Another minor change is about a 2 ounce savings in weight. Lastly - it's now possible to carry the tripod over one's shoulders with the legs splayed and resting on both shoulders without getting poked in the back of the head with the end of the longer column. If you don't want to cut off the original column then this is the way to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is indeed short. The ELC-2 short column works with the Induro CT213 carbon fiber tripod. When the tripod legs are splayed out to the fullest extent, the tripod's collar is about 7 above the substrate. Thus, the approximatly 18 standard center collumn, which is supplied with the tripod, is rendered unsuable; it does not disassemble into two pieces like my old Velbon does. You have to replace it with the optional short column if you are going to use the tripod for low-angle shots or macrophotography. What can I say, it works! It's sturdy and you can easily store it in the tripod case that comes with the Induro CT213.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I got this the same day I got my Induro CT214 tripod, and this short column has been on it ever since. Glad I got it for ridiculously low angles with the tripod. I use a Canon 7D with a 100-400 lens, and haven't had any issues so far. This fits the tripod like a stock piece. Super stable, does exactly what it's supposed to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for low-angle shooting I bought this shorter column to replace the longer column in my CT214 tripod for the times when I want to shoot very low to the groung. It allows me to get as low as I need to and it really works great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be standard on Induro tripods This is a must have for anyone shooting very low. I don't know why Induro doesn't have this as a standard piece of their tripod. Anyway, an easy swap out. I am much happier now with my favorite tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must have for indoor tripods If you have an induro tripod I highly recommend getting this accessory so you can use the low angle feature of the tripod, plus it reduces the weight slightly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improves low-angle shooting The short column improves the wide-leg low-angle capacity of the tripod. You can literally spread the legs nearly flat and shoot close to the ground.
