Velbon's high-performance ULTRA LUXi M tripod lets you take stunning photos from just about any angle. It can position your camera as low to the ground as 7-1/2" for close macro shots of foliage or insects, or as high as 54-1/2" for everyday shooting. And when it's time to take your gear on the road, the whole thing folds up to just 13-5/8" 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 extends to the length of the leg 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.
