The Oben CT-2420 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a sturdy, professional support for any DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. Four-section legs allow the tripod to fold down to a compact 20.2" – that's small enough to fit a carry-on bag for airline travel. With a heavy load capacity of 26.4 lb and a generous maximum height of 64.3", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.
The tripod features ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg. Because legs are non-rotating, all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist. This enables extremely fast setup of the CT-2420. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections.
With its rigid yet lightweight 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CT-2420 tips the scales at less than 3 lb. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for sturdiness, so the CT-2420 is ready to survive the rigors of professional use.
The CT-2420's rapid center column extends with a twist of the butterfly knob. For protecting your camera when the column is retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper under the center-post collar. Steel locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten a camera head to it more securely.
Pull-in/push-out positive leg locks allow you to set the positions of the three legs independently at three different angles. This allows you to shoot from low angles or on uneven terrain. For stability on softer terrain, the CT-2420 features retractable spikes that emerge from its rubber feet.
For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column is easily reversible. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the CT-2420's center column.
