question

How to convert it in vertical position for photo portrait?
Asked by: Rodolphe D.
While photo tripod heads are designed to be shifted from horizontal to vertical with ease, the same cannot be said of video heads. Video heads are designed for smooth panning and tilting of a horizontally oriented camcorder. If you wish to do photo portraits, you will need to replace the video head with a photo head.

question

What are the dimensions of the packed tripod + case? Wondering about what size regular suitcase that would fit in.
Asked by: Aline K.
Unfortunately, we do not have the dimensions of the tripod in the case. However, we do have the dimensions of the shipping box the tripod and case comes in. I suggest this information will give you what you need to plan with. I suspect the size of the tripod in the case will be an inch or two smaller. 34.0 x 6.8 x 6.3
