Oben CT-2431 overview

  • 1Description

The CT-2431 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Oben is a sturdy support for compact DSLRs, mirrorless or point-and-shoot cameras or compact camcorders. With a load capacity of 8.8 lb and a maximum height of 54.5", 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-2431. 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-2431 is lightweight (1.70 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigors of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further strength.

The CT-2431'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-2431 features metal spikes underneath the removable rubber feet cap.

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.
Legs with 4-sections tend to collapse shorter for easier portability. The CT-2431 folds to 17.8".
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 loop for attaching a optional shoulder strap
A removable rubber cap provides stability on flooring and stable ground and underneath, metal spikes offers stability on ice and soft terrain.
Included padded carry bag features dual heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket, and extra room to accommodate a head

    Oben CT-2431 reviews

    CT-2431 Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Value I wanted a compact, lightweight tripod that would support my various cameras (full frame DSLR with lightweight primes, Rolleiflex, and my 4x5 Crown Graphic). The 4x5 is pushing the threshold for sure but it seems steady enough for my needs.It's incredibly light. It's smaller than I expected, too. The twisting leg locks are so nice in comparison to my other tripod's flip locks that really hurt my fingers. Operation is smooth and the exterior fit and finish of the tripod is excellent.What's not so great is that I unscrewed the leg lock accidentally (which is kind of easy to do, actually) and I noticed that the interior nylon bushing looks quite flimsy. Mental note to try to buy replacements to have around when they inevitably fail or get lost.At full height, the tiny bottom leg sections bend under moderate weight. The tripod seems to absorb handling and bumps very quickly, though.
