Product Overview

The Oben CT-3520 5-Section Carbon Fiber Folding Tripod with BB-1T Ball Head is a sturdy yet lightweight tripod with legs that fold upward 180 to create an extremely compact package for transport - with the included head attached folded length is only 16.6. For further versatility for travelers one of the legs unscrews from the chassis and attaches to the head & carbon-fiber center column to form a working-height monopod. With a high system load capacity of 22 lb the full-sized tripod and head ensure a stable base for any DSLR body/lens combination with multiple accessories or for an HD video camera.With the five carbon-fiber leg sections and the center column extended the maximum height of the CT-3520 is 66.5. The legs are non-rotating which enables single-handed operation of all four rubber twist locks on each leg: One twist of the wrist and the four leg stages descend. The three legs are independently adjustable and they can be locked securely at two different angles. The tripod's feet feature retractable spikes for shooting both indoors and outdoors on any terrain.To shoot in monopod mode simply unscrew the leg that forms the base of the monopod remove the center column from the chassis and screw these two elements together. With the head & center column mounted on the extended leg you have a monopod that's even taller than the tripod at full height.Like the legs the center column features a twist lock that frees up its extension and retraction. For protection when it's retracted quickly there's a rubber damper that protects the center-post collar. At the bottom of the center column is a spring-loaded detachable hook that allows you to attach a counterweight for extra stability in windy conditions. The hook doubles as a stopper for the center column which can be removed and reversed for low-angle shooting.The BB-1T's three separate rubberized knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. The head pans a full 360 with accurate markings all around to facilitate panoramic photography. The head tilts a full 90 in one direction which facilitates shooting in portrait orientation. Friction control allows you to set the ease of movement of the ball head to match the particular load that it's supporting. A bubble level on the head aids in framing.The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4-20 screw. The quick-release plate easily slides into place on the BB-1T head and the Arca-style quick-release knob clamps it in for maximum stability.The CT-3520 also includes a fitted padded carry case with a shoulder strap two heavy-duty zippers and an interior zipper pocket.
