Our take on the Velbon Sherpa+ 530 Tripod and FHD51QN Video Head

by Woody Sherman
Velbon

When speed counts, you'll be happy you have this Velbon Sherpa+ 530 tripod and FHD51QN video head as part of your kit. First, its lightweight aluminum/magnesium construction means it's a pleasure to carry. But it's full of thought-out touches that will increase your efficiency. The center column has a super-fast quick-release lever with a safety lock, so you can adjust your height in seconds. The foam-padded leg grips help you to readjust the unit while keeping a tight hold on your pivot legs. The legs themselves individually lock at 3 different positions for loads of flexibility in selecting shooting angles.

The Sherpa+ 530 leg set is suitable for a range of Velbon heads, including the supplied FHD51QN Video tripod head. The fluid head included with this combo will provide you with the smooth control necessary for professional-looking camera moves. The included quick-release plate lets you mount a camcorder that weighs up to 8.8 pounds.
