The Redged RTA-428 Steady 4-Section Aluminum Tripod is a versatile, lightweight tripod that supports a great deal of weight for such a portable model. Composed of aluminum alloy, the 4-section legs and center column extend to a generous maximum height of 63.4" and fold down to 21.7".
The RTA-428 includes many features that professionals expect: Anti-rotation legs for quick setup, a high load capacity of 26.5 lb, a reversible center column, and a counterweight hook for attaching a ballast for added stability during windy shoots. In addition, both the twist locks and the center column are designed to prevent sand and dust from invading the RTA-428. At 4.0 lb, this Steady tripod is a great choice for backpackers and other traveling photographers.
Aluminum Leg Tubes
Leg tubes are composed of lightweight, heavy-duty aluminum alloy
Because of the non-rotation system, all locks of each leg can be opened at the same time, in one movement. Setup happens in a matter of seconds
Easy Lock Rings
The Redged ring-locking system keeps dust and sand from entering the tripod, ensuring perfect operation. It requires no extra power to achieve a safe locking
Column-Locking Ring with Wings
The wings ensure tight locking of the center column when heavy photographic gear is placed on the tripod. Rubber sealing prevents sand from entering the locking mechanism
Three Leg Positions
Besides the normal position, the tripod offers the extra-low position for low viewpoints and ground-level macro subjects, and a middle position for table-top photography and macro photography (flowers, insects, etc.)
By inverting the center column, it is possible to realize even lower camera positions and macro positions. This is also great for making reproductions of flat objects, using the setup as a sort of copy stand
The counterweight hook is designed for attaching extra weight (a photo bag, or a bag with sand or stones), to increase the stability of the tripod, especially during windy conditions
Reversible Mounting Screw
Reversible screw has both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads, so any photo head or other accessory can be attached
Universal rubber feet, suitable for many surfaces
High-precision leveling bubble makes for perfectly leveled shots
All-Weather Foam Grip
Luxury leg covers for easy handling and comfort in cold temperatures
