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.
