With rugged aluminum construction that supports up to 15 pounds, the Velbon Videomate 607/F tripod will provide a solid mount for just about any video camera. The 3-section legs are easily adjusted and locked into place for stability and security on almost any surface. And the fluid panhead lets you pan and tilt with smoothness and precision while you record your daughter's performance in the school play or your son's play on the football field. The geared center column makes it easy to raise up the camera to shoot from higher angles without having to readjust the legs. And a quick-release plate makes it easy to connect and detach your camera for fast and easy setup and breakdown.
