The Velbon Ultra LUXi-M Compact Travel Tripod With Trunnion Shaft is an ideal travelling tripod. Light, yet sturdy to carry a DSLR camera system. When the lower centre column is detached, the tripod has a minimum working height of 19cm. Ideal for close-up or macro photography.
Using a high-quality tripod can dramatically improve your pictures by reducing camera shake, allowing low-light situations to be photographed and aiding good composition.
The Velbon Ultra LUXi-M is extremely compact when folded, yet when extended the tripod measures a full 155 cm. This unique system is called the Trunnion Shaft System (TSS). Suitable for most compact digital cameras and camcorders.
The Ultra tripods additionally features the unique, Patented Velbon “Twist Lock” leg system–a simple quick twist and pull allows you to extend each leg in on movement. Another twist locks the leg.
The tripod legs are clip-free giving each leg the ability to be extended or collapsed in one twist action. This useful feature enables the tripods to fold down, compress and be taken anywhere.
Feature a 3-way panhead for accurate image composition on vertical and horizontal planes. An extra-low position is also achievable when the centre column is detached.
Centre column elevation is 2-section; lower part can be unscrewed and detached for use in full low-angle position.
