Designed for smaller video cameras, the Velbon Videomate 638/F tripod features a heavy-duty, durable aluminum design that's also lightweight enough for strapping to a backpack when you're on the move. The 3-section legs are easily adjusted and locked into place, for stability and security on most any surface. Attach your video camera to this tripod's quick-release plate and record your daughter's performance in the school play or your son's play on the football field. The fluid panhead lets you pan and tilt with smoothness and precision while you record. And when it's time to move on to the next event, just detach your camera and fold up the Videomate 638/F for a compact, easy-to-carry package.
