Oben CC-2381L overview

  • 1Description

The CCC-2381L 3-Section Carbon Fiber Lateral Tripod from Oben is a sturdy, professional support for any DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or a compact camcorder. With a load capacity of 26.4 lb and a generous maximum height of 68.8", the lateral tripod features a tilting, swiveling center column that enables flexible positioning for macro photography and other uses.

Engaging the lateral adjustment lever frees the tilting of the center column once it's been extended past the chassis, which becomes possible by pressing the button at the column's bottom to disengage the safety bolt. Once extended, the column can tilt, with no ratcheting, from its original 0°, straight-up-and-down orientation, to a 180° upside-down orientation – with possible stops everywhere in between, including a 90° lateral position. Twisting a knob on the chassis locks and unlocks the 360° swiveling of the center column and its upper collar.

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

With its 6x carbon fiber legs and center column, the CC-2381L is lightweight (3.80 lb) and extremely durable. The tripod chassis is cast aluminum for further durability.

When it's not being used in its lateral mode, the CC-2381L's rapid center column functions like any professional tripod, extending after a twist of the knob on the upper collar. The tripod's center column can also be removed from both the chassis and the upper collar so that it can be reversed. 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 center-post 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 CC-2381L features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

Center column adjusts throughout a complete sphere of possible positions, so you can take steady shots from virtually any angle
The two 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 within the upper collar
Integrated aluminum loop for attaching an optional shoulder strap
Rugged rubber tips with retractable spikes for shooting both indoors and outdoors on any terrain
Included padded carry bag features dual heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket, and extra room to accommodate a head

    Oben CC-2381L reviews

    CC-2381L 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You don't get what you pay for I purchased this tripod in a kit along with the BA-126 Single Ball Head. Overall, this tripod isn't awful, if you do not intend to use the center column at all. The legs are sturdy and the body is light weight. However, once the center column is extended and used horizontally, it becomes useless. The first CC-2381L I had allowed for quite a bit of movement when the column was locked at any angle besides vertically. It would creep down and if you touched the camera at all to make adjustments, it would require you to reframe the shot. Also, one of the tripod legs would slowly retract. I worked with B&H to exchanged the CC-2381L thinking it might have been a manufacturing issue. Nope. The second version was worse. The center column wouldn't even hold the weight of my Canon 70D with a Canon 100mm f2.8l Macro lens, which comes in around 4 lbs. This was is well shy of the advertised 26 lbs limit. The center column was not fully extended (as seen in the product picture), I would remove the camera before adjusting the neck angel and the joint was locked down as tight as possible. Still, the hinged column could not support the weight and almost dropped my camera on the ground. Luckily I was holding onto the strap, fearing something might happen. I only used the second tripod for one day, right out of the box. Needless to say, I would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time lapse and more as someone who likes to shoot lot's of time-lapse shots and travel I can say it is one of the best tripods I ever had, it's not heavy easy to work with, I'm sure it will work fine for studios, products'photo, architecture ...and anything you may think of. not sure if it works for video except as second camera tripod, you know as a C.U angle camera for Interview

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Center Column Loose I wanted to like this tripod, especially for the price. The legs were nice and stiff and I liked the leg locks but the center column was not smooth, up or down, and it had an unacceptable amount of play in it when locked. I returned it immediately and went with the Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ 263CT and have no regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I've only owned a punks travis to compare with, but this thing is solid, fantastic, I much prefer the snap locks on the legs as opposed to twist style. She's not much for traveling or rough locations but I'm psyched to have it. My only complaint, the metal clip on the bag strap broke like nothing at all.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Light weigh tripod, but ! I thought this carbon tripod would be a great buy but it failed to meet the design or the purpose of a tripod, which is to secure the camera. Unable to securely lock down on the main shaft or pod. BH was great and very professional about my return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favotite tripod I really like this tripod. It supports what I need it to and gives real stability.
