Compact and lightweight, the Velbon Ultra Maxi-L Tripod incorporates the patented "Twist Lock" leg-locking system, which allows its legs to lock and unlock quickly and simply with just a half turn twist. This unique system speeds up the set-up time significantly. This model also features the Trunion Shaft System (TSS), where the main leg-bolts are now positioned directly above the shaft, which makes the tripod even more compact when closed.
The tripod's unique leg assembly allows for a five-section tripod with a great expansion/contraction ratio (~60" extended & ~14.2" collapsed). It is especially ideal for use as a traveling tripod, to be used with a standard digital SLR camera system.
The included PHD-31Q is a fully-featured all-metal "revolving" pan/tilt head. In addition to the usual 3-way pan and tilt functions this head has a second revolving plane, basically allowing for any position. It has swing function of 90° to right and left, and 360° pan action. The quick release platform is compact and thin, but is made of aluminum to maintain durability.
Independent leg spread allows each leg to be positioned at different angles, with a choice of three preset angles.
