Our take on the Velbon EX-630/F by Crutchfield's David Brown
Designed for larger cameras and camcorders, the heavy-duty 3-section Velbon EX-630/F can support up to 12 pounds while the lightweight aluminum construction keeps it portable. Strap it to your camera backpack and you'll always be ready to shoot cool time-lapse shots or smooth video. Extend the locking legs and center column to a height of 66-1/8 inches. Pan and scan or tilt up and down with the easy-grip handle. Or flip the quick-release plate up to a ninety-degree angle for portrait-mode shooting.
