Oben CT-2381 overview

  • 1Description

The CT-2381 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Oben is a sturdy support for most DSLR, mirrorless, and point-and-shoot cameras, or camcorders. With a load capacity of 26.4 lb and a maximum height of 64", 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, both 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-2381. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections.

With its 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CT-2381 is both lightweight (the tripod weighs just 2.95 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further strength.

The CT-2381'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 CT-2381 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.

Ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg are non-rotating so all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist, enabling fast setup.

    Oben CT-2381 reviews

    CT-2381 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tripod I use this tripod with a gimbol mount for my 150-600 mm lens. It's lightweight but rock solid with the lens extended all the way out to 600 mm, even on a fairly windy day. It's easy to setup and use yet it's light and compact when you have to haul your equipment a long way. It's made of carbon fiber so it's going to be really tough and durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! This is my first carbon fiber tripod. It is replacing an inexpensive aluminum tripod that broke after a few years of light use. I did not expect such a dramatic difference in stepping up to this carbon fiber model. The twist locks are great, I absolutely love being able to carry the tripod around without flip-lock levers getting hung up on everything along the way. This thing dampens vibrations really, really well! My aluminum tripod you could put the camera in live view and and just sit there and watch the picture shake and shake and shake. With this tripod, combined with the Oben BC-139 ball head, you can tap the camera or leg and the vibrations are completely gone within a second. This tripod is rock steady to a degree I never expected. The fit and finish seem fine. I could detect no flaws or issues at all. The legs open and close smoothly, and the hinged legs pivot very smoothly but with a good amount of tension so there is no worry about accidentally bumping a leg closed and topling the tripod. A note about the height: I am 5'6 tall. When the tripod legs are fully extended and the center column is fully down, using the BC-139 ball head with my Nikon D610 clamped on, the viewfinder is perfectly at eye-level for me. I could not have asked for a more perfect fit to my physical height.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable and light The locks on the legs are easy to lock/unlock and hold my 7 lb camera and telephoto lens nice and steady. I use it with an Oben ball head.I like the stability of the tubular legs without the weight of a heavier tripod. I have been doing a lot of outdoor photography at temperatures below 10 degrees and the legs get cold, but not nearly as frigid as my aluminum tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy I trust this tripod to support my large telephoto lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality tripod I bought this tripod for use with a gimbal head for new Nikon 200-500mm lens. It has worked perfectly for my needs. I like that it is carbon fiber. The gimbal head and lens/camera combo are heavy enough. The less weight I need to carry is a benefit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Stable Tripod This is surprisingly sturdy for the weight. I replaced an aluminum tripod with this. It is much more stable and stiff. No more ringing with this tripod. The aluminum tripod was capable of holding equal weight but was not as stiff for light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tripod Use this on-location and in the studio with a Nikon D810 and Profoto Air Remote as needed.
