New Oben Tripods with Triple-Action Ball Heads


Lightweight and compact, the new Oben tripods with triple-action ball heads make bringing a tripod on your next photo adventure easy. The CT-3565 carbon fiber model weighs 3.2 lb, folds to 16.1", supports 20 lb, and extends from 9.1-61.8". Photographers will appreciate the reverse-folding, variable-angle, five-section legs, detachable leg for monopod use, and the BZ-217T ball head. Slightly heavier, the aluminum AT-3565 version weighs 3.7 lb, and shares the same specs.

With the same features, but capable of supporting 27 lb, and with a BZ-226T ball head, the carbon CT-3586 weighs 4.0 lb, folds to 16.6", and extends 8.4-62.5". Complementing this tripod is the 4.5-lb aluminum version AT-3586. All four tripods have retractable rubber feet with metal spikes for improved support on softer terrain. For added versatility, the rapid center column is reversible, extends and locks into place via twist lock, and switches seamlessly with the low-angle center column.

Considering the weight, size, included items, and versatility of the new Oben tripods—you’ll be glad you have one handy on your next photo adventure.
