Oben AC-2361 overview

  • 1Description

The AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock) from Oben is a sturdy support for most DSLR, mirrorless, point-and-shoot cameras, or compact camcorders. With a load capacity of 17.6 lb and a maximum height of 66", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.

The tripod's flip locks, which enable the extension and securing of the leg stages, are user-adjustable. By using a supplied Allen key, the user can tighten two points on each spring-loaded flip lock to safeguard their continued reliable performance.

With its anodized aluminum construction, the AC-2361 is durable. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum alloy for further strength.

The AC-2361'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 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 AC-2361 features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

For extreme low-angle shooting, the center column can be split into two sections with the provided Allen key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For a faster method, the center column is also easily reversible. These features are especially ideal for macro and close-up photography. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the center column.

Foam grips on two legs mitigate the effects of extreme heat & cold and provide comfortable grip
The included hex keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
Reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw fits almost any head
Bubble level on tripod chassis
Center column is grooved to prevent its rotation
Split center column for low angle set-up
Spring-loaded metal counterweight hook at the bottom of the center column
Integrated aluminum alloy loop for attaching an optional shoulder strap
Rugged rubber tips with retractable spikes for shooting both indoors and outdoors on many surfaces
Included padded carry bag features dual heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket, and extra room to accommodate a head

    Oben AC-2361 reviews

    AC-2361 3-Section Aluminum Tripod Legs (Flip Lock) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good legs, horrible column Probably one of the biggest disappointments for me in a long while. I really want to like these sticks but the it has a major flaw. The center column is round with a grove in it and the only thing that holds it from turning is a little plastic tab and a tension knob. If the knob fails to hold it in place that plastic tab snaps! Look for a column that is hexagon or triangular as they can't twist. Other than that, these legs are sturdy and can hold some weight. That's why I give them two stars. Perhaps these can work for Photography, not for video or anything else that requires tightening large video heads or sliders on the center column.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Since I'm homeless I bought what I can afford. This is a heavy tripod at my age (65) weight is an issue. My old Manfrotto is still working but my hand has difficulty with the small knobs so I bought this one So far the only thing I find inconvenient is when I spread the legs for low photography there is no spring action to secure the legs, I have to manually push the locking mechanism. Yes Photography is my Love, Passion and a Life saver. If anybody interested to visit my web site; www.visiblestimuli.com

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Tripod If you use a heavy camera with big lenses this tripod will do more than just fine. I've used this item for almost a year now and it just great. Stabilizes my Nikon D700 and 80-200mm lens without a problem. Legs locks are very durable. The only thing that I didn't like about it was that the O ring on the bottom of the column had to be thicker to prevent scraping on the legs. That's no biggie, I got that fixed. Other than that, its simple, strong and serves it's purpose well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Easy to use I have been using this tripod for studio and landscape work and I find that it is easy to use and light enough to carry outside the studio. The construction is great and all moving parts are solid. I have been very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Tripod for the Price I purchased this for Architectural / Real Estate photography. It is nice and light and raises up to a nice height. I tried using it with the center pole raised but it becomes too shaky for me. I would say this is good for general photography. For architectural use I wish it was more steady. I use wireless tethering to take pictures so there is absolutely no shake caused by me. When I auto-align multiple exposures in Photoshop, they are slightly out of alignment. The only thing moving on the tripod is the shutter in the camera. If I hang a 10 pound weight from the tripod it is a little better but the images still won't exactly line up, thus the four star rating. I would reccomend it for general use, but not for architectural.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice This tripod is simply an excellent choice! I am using it for video shoots and landscape shots. I know that a lot of people talk about weight on products like this, but the difference between 3.7 lbs and 5.2 lbs is pretty negligble to me. What I LOVE about this is it's solid construction and ease of use. When I am setting up for a shot, I want my gear to be sturdy and dependable, and that is exactly what I am getting from this tripod. Even when I am using a 70-200 on my Canon, the tripod feels like it could handle 3-4 times the weight without a second thought. If I had it to do over again, I might choose the 4 section just to see how it compares. But, again, I prefer solid performance over ease of transporting, so I would HIGHLY recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The complete package I'm a photo enthusiast that loves to do night photography, both land and sky, and this tripod is perfect for that job. I also do macro photography and the multi-position legs at different angles allow me to get those low shots that were very difficult for me previously.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Tripod Solid tripod, really nice case with velcro fastener on handles, or shoulder strap. Long enough to easily fit third party head. Not a backpacking tripod, too heavy, despite the case. Flips on legs are very solid feeling and should not snap. head slides down easily after raising, but catches at the last inch. Unclear what is intended with that. Quick release mount works well. Bought to go with Oben triple action ball head, very happy with the combo. I am an amateur+ photographer, Fujifilm X-T2.
