Velbon Ultra LUXi-L Tripod with PHD-41Q 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head
Key Features
  • Supports 4.4 lbs (2kg)
  • Trunnion Shaft System (TSS)
  • 5-Section Legs
  • Quick Release Plate
Compact and lightweight, the Velbon Ultra LUXi-L Tripod incorporates the patented "Twist Lock" leg-locking system, which allows its legs to lock and unlock quickly and simply with just a half turn twist. This unique system speeds up the set-up time significantly. This model also features the Trunion Shaft System (TSS), where the main leg-bolts are now positioned directly above the shaft, which makes the tripod even more compact when closed.

The tripod's unique leg assembly allows for a five-section tripod with a great expansion/contraction ratio (~63" extended & ~15" collapsed). It is especially ideal for use as a traveling tripod, to be used with a standard digital SLR camera system.

The included PHD-41Q is a fully-featured 3-way pan/tilt head, with separate (removable) control handles and a quick release system.

I bought it based on the good reviews and the fact that it's very light. It's very versatile (multiple leg angles, tall at full height, folds small). It's also very intuitive to use. I love the levels on the head as well, makes life easier in setting up a shot.

Solid tripod

This is a solid tripod. Fast to extend the tripod legs by turning the rubber foot clockwise. It's very light weight, which is ideal for traveling. I highly recommend this tripod.

Love this compact tripod

In the old days, I owned several top-end Velbon tripods, so when I was shopping for a compact version, to carry in a daypack, I again looked to that company. (and trust B&H) I wasn't disappointed. The tripod arrived quickly, packed well, and is exactly the thing to have in a hiking/camping bag, without adding too much weight and bulk. The included case with shoulder strap is handy, when hiking without the backpack, and the photographer features (tilt/pan head, etc.) are typical high Velbon quality.

Good bang for the buck!

Needed a strong tripod that folds small to transport quickly and fits on tripod carrying features on the outside of my camera bag without paying big bucks for carbon fiber. This one definitely fits the bill and is easy to use.

Really Solid for its weight and size

Although not a substitute for a heavyweight tripod, this tripod is hard to beat for its size, weight and ease of use. Although rated for only 4.4 pounds, I am sure it could take more and slips easily into a backpack.
