Our take on the Velbon CX-480
Velbon's CX-480 gives you a full range of height adjustment and sturdy construction at a price that won't bust your wallet. Its three-section telescopic legs extend the tripod to almost five feet tall great for snapping steady still-life images of your local wildlife or capturing long video shots of your child's dance recital. The included panhead with a joystick-style grip lets you tilt your camera up, down, or to the right, or smoothly pan your camera across a scene. Plus, the legs are made out of aluminum to ensure an incredibly stable, vibration-free platform for your camera.
This tripod neatly folds up to less than two feet long, and it's light enough to carry around for extended periods of time without straining your back or shoulder. The quick-release plate can be locked into the tripod socket of your camera and left in place. That way, you can quickly attach and detach your camera from the tripod when those unexpected photo opportunities come up.
