Oben AC-1431 overview

  • 1Description

The Oben AC-1431 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-108 Ball Head provides supports up to 8.8 lb, rises to a maximum height of 59.5" with the center column fully extended, and folds down to a compact 21" for transport. Flip locks on the four-section legs facilitate rapid setup and break down. Three leg angles: normal (80°), low (55°) and extra low (24°) are available via angle adjustment tabs at the joint of each leg.

The center column can be reversed with a twist of the butterfly knob, or it can be split in two to be used as a short column for macro and low angle shooting as low as 8.1". Any combination of leg angles can be combined to accommodate uneven terrain, stairs or obstructions. A built-in bubble level helps you square up your compositions. For extra stability the center column employs a spring-loaded counterbalance hook.

The included BA-108 ball head features a single-action lever that controls its rotation and 360 degree panning while a robust ball-locking mechanism secures it solidly. The head's four bubble levels ensure accurate panoramas. The BA-108's built-in quick release comes with a camera plate that features a standard 1/4"-20 screw and a retractable, removable video pin to provide additional stability for camcorders. Since the head is removable, locking screws underneath the collar thwart torsion when re-attaching. The tripod comes with a carry case and shoulder strap for storage and transport.

Center column can be separated into 2 parts to give you a short column for low angle and macro work
Center column is grooved to prevent rotation
Spring-loaded counterweight hook is located at the bottom of the center column
Leg cushions on 2 legs provide a firm grip in cold or wet weather
Tripod features reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw to fit almost any head
Angle adjustment locks keep legs at the chosen angles
Angled rubber feet for maximum contact with the ground
Two included Allen keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
Padded carry bag provides a snug fit for the tripod/head combination and features two heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket with a zipper, and a shoulder strap

    Oben AC-1431 reviews

    AC-1431 Aluminum Tripod with BA-108 Ball Head is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Shipping was fast. It's a great buy. it's well built nice and sturdy. The ball head is smooth and the quick plate is secure feeling. Only issue (which its not a huge deal) is you have to loosen the whole ball head mechanism to use the 360 pan feature. Which can leave your camera loose or cause drift especially with a larger lens. No biggie just a minor inconvenience. Love this whole set up though well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oben 1431 - the right choice As a new, amateur photographer I was looking for a basic affordable aluminum travel tripod and quickly became overwhelmed with the number of choices on the market. Who would have thought there could be so many manufacturers and models? I was willing to pay for a decent one for under $200. After much exhausting research, I had settled on a Mafrotto Befree. I ordered one, but the e-tailer sent me the wrong color -- twice. Yes, twice. They clearly didn't have the color I wanted in stock. I gave up on that retailer and I stumbled across Oben brand on the B&H website. The 1431 appeared to have every feature I wanted at a full 40% less than the Manfrotto's $199 (for black - other awful colors are as low as $150 on the same model -- there is a good reason those colors are cheaper). Features I wanted: 1) flip locks (just quicker for me) 2) quick-release plate compatible with my Fuji XT10 mirrorless Fotga grip. Oben's is actually nicer than the Manfrotto version which I really liked - the Oben 1431 plate snaps in without having to manipulate the plate trigger which is super nice 3) overall sturdy construction 4) weight hook 5) decent ball head 6) lightweight/easy to carry/pack 7) reasonable height 8) black / neutral unobtrusive color. After having to sacrifice one or more of these requirements, I was thrilled to see the Oben hit the mark on ALL of these. I did NOT have to settle for almost everything I wanted. I should mention that it comes with a solid (and nicely neutral/black) shoulder bag that was far nicer than the Manfrotto's awful red, white and black one (bleah). I tested it out when I got it and it works great. I was a little apprehensive ordering a brand that was less covered by various reviews online, but am glad I found it. I am thrilled with my purchase. A perfect tripod for my particular needs at a price that is tough to beat. I rarely write a review; I hope this review is helpful!
