Velbon's high-performance ULTRA LUXi L tripod lets you take stunning photos from just about any angle. The sturdy aluminum legs retract to hold your camera as low as 7-1/2" off the ground for taking close macro shots, or you can extend the tripod to a height of 63-7/16" for everyday shooting. And when you're ready to hit the road, the whole thing folds down to just 15-7/16" for easy traveling. The joystick-style grip lets you tilt the four-way panhead up and down, or left and right to smoothly sweep your camera across a scene.
Extra-long, sturdy twist-to-lock legs
All of Velbon's Ultra Series tripods feature patented Trunnion Shaft System (TSS) technology. It means that each leg section extends to the length of the section before it, making the tripod extremely compact when folded. It also features Velbon's "Twist Lock" leg system a simple quick twist and pull allows you to extend each leg in one movement, while another twist locks the leg. It helps to ensure an incredibly stable, vibration-free platform for your camera.
Works with the tripod head of your choice
The included quick-release plate can be screwed into the threaded tripod socket of your camera and left in place. That way, you can quickly attach and detach your camera from the tripod, so you'll be ready for unexpected photo opportunities when they come up. If you already have a favorite tripod head, or want to use a Velbon professional ball head, you can easily remove the panhead and mount almost any tripod head in its place.
