Oben AC-1451 overview

  • 1Description

The AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head from Oben is an ideal tripod head combo for photographers looking for individual control on all axes. The sturdy 4-section aluminum legs can hold a camera or camcorder up to 13.2 lb, and will extend up to 68.3".

The legs are non-rotating, and have flip locks on each leg to adjust the height of the tripod. Each leg is independently adjustable, and they can be locked securely at three different angles. The tripod's feet feature rubber tips which are great for shooting on slippery or hard surfaces.

The center column features a twist lock that frees up its extension and retraction. For protection when it's retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper that protects the center-post collar. At the bottom of the center column is a spring-loaded ballast hook that allows you to attach a counterweight for extra stability. The detachable hook doubles as a stopper for the center column, which can be removed and reversed for low-angle shooting.

The PD-117 head allows independent camera adjustment on the horizontal and vertical planes as well as 360° panning. Two locking handles control the front-to-back and side-to-side tilt, and a thumb screw locks and unlocks the panning motion.

The quick release system includes an RP-20 plate with a video pin, and a safety lock on the release lever, preventing accidental release of the camera. Two bull's eye levels, and three tubular levels ensure your camera will be level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.

This tripod also includes a fitted, padded carry case with a removable shoulder strap, two heavy-duty zippers, and an interior zipper pocket. A tool clip with two hex wrenches for adjusting the center column and the leg joints is also included. It snaps onto any of the tripod legs for easy access.

Center column can be separated into 2 parts to give you a short column for low angle and macro work
Center column is grooved to prevent rotation
Spring-loaded counterweight hook is located at the bottom of the center column
Leg cushions on 2 legs provide a firm grip in cold or wet weather
Tripod features reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 screw to fit almost any head
Angle adjustment locks keep legs at the chosen angles
Angled rubber feet for maximum contact with the ground
Two included Allen keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
Padded carry bag provides a snug fit for the tripod/head combination and features two heavy-duty zippers, an interior pocket with a zipper, and a shoulder strap

    Oben AC-1451 reviews

    AC-1451 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with PD-117 Pan/Tilt Head is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Video Purchased this tripod for stills and video after reading all of the high ratings, but very disappointed that the panning was so extremely tight that the head would always unscrew from the tripod when panning left. That makes it worthless for taking videos. Perhaps the pan might loosen up some with use, but I doubt that it would ever be loose enough to be smooth. It's a shame because this is an otherwise sturdy and well designed combination -- I hated to have to return it. Other reviewers have mentioned the tight panning problem on the PD-117 head as well as the need to remove one of the handles (and risk losing the non-captive washer) in order to fit the head into the supplied carry bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! The Perfect Photographer's and Videographer's Tool! I use this product for every project I do, whether it be photography or film making. For your still shots for video, this makes it a piece of cake, it is quick and easy to set up and it does not move. It makes photographing early morning, late night, difficult shoots, and photographs that need that right perspective much less of a head ache. The legs have multiple options for height and angle adjustments to get the right perspective and balance. The head is not a ball head, but it works great for those that don't rush the project. As far as things that are not so great, I honestly have not run in to any. Definitely worth the investment!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy but a little heavy I only use a tripod inside the building, and then only for official photos, so I won't be carrying it all the time. The quality is really good, very sturdy with a nice optical appeal. Also, since the legs are independent from each other, it can be used on an uneven surface without worry that it will tip over. The aluminum is a nice, high-quality aluminum, and it isn't something you would want to carry on a hike into the mountains because of the weight. Other than that, there is nothing I can complain about. I've read the reviews about the problem with panning because the head is so tight. I haven't had that issue. I loosened up the head a little, put some WD-40 inside, and have no problems now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as Advertised Just received the tripod and was very impressed with the quality. Researched the product and the reviews which were all great but I was a little skeptical that the tripod could be that good. It was much more than I expected, it meet all my needs for ease of setup and knock down and weight. I use it for landscape, portraits, wildlife and night shots. I am 6'1'' and I wanted a tripod that I don't have to hunchback over but still wanted something that I could get to ground level for macro work. Love this tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and high quality I purchased this as a deal of the day and it was the first Oben product I have ever purchased. Always before, I purchased cheaper tripods from Amazon. This was priced right and so I took a shot. I am so glad that I did. This is a high quality product, and the weight is so much better than other tripods I have used. I can actually carry this around all day. One of the best things about this purchase is the carrying case that comes with the tripod. It is well padded, had metal clasps, quality stitching, and a heavy duty strap. Since I pack my tripod with me all day, this was the best part of my tripod upgrade!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the most satisfying purchases for my camera ever. They didn't spend a lot of money on packaging frills, but when I removed the tripod from the box, I just loved it. It is more than pretty solid, and it looks good and it's not super heavy. I don't have a big DSLR like a D810 or D5 and I wouldn't recommend the plate to someone who did because the rubber is a little thin and it is attached by glue but I'm sure there are work arounds, but for my mid size DSLR, no problem whatsoever. This tripod is the same price as something you would get from a Big Box Store, but feels like an expensive tripod from a specialty store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch customer service My last tripod was 40 years old, so I was surprised how complicated this tripod was. There are five separate leveling bubbles, which flummoxed me, and the instruction manual was not as clear as it could be. But I spent 30 minutes on the phone with some poor soul at B&H and he patiently helped me understand how to work the tripod. So if you are technologically challenged, B&H is the place for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tripod Around $100! My husband wanted a new tripod for our DSLR camera's (currently both using the Canon 80D) as our previous tripods were slowly falling apart in different places. We did A LOT of extensive research into tripods as he wanted one that was adjustable in 2-3 directions, had a spring clip to put the camera onto, and a pan head. This tripod fit the bill for all 3! The tripod itself is very professional looking and looks/acts just like a $400 Manfrotto! Just an awesome product, came very quickly and packaged very nicely. Event comes with its own carrying case with handle and sling options. Couldn't be happier!!
