The Velbon ULTREK 45L Compact Travel Tripod With Trunnion Shaft is a sturdy tripod that folds out to a working height of 61.6" from the tiniest of packages. At less than a foot long (11.6") when its twist-lock legs are retracted and folded up 180° (so the feet meet the included 4-way head).
Velbon ULTREK 45L is perfect for stowing in a backpack or even a tote bag, for the ultimate in low-profile yet high-performance camera support. Lightweight for traveling, the tripod weighs just 2.73 lb and supports up to 6.6 lb.
The tripod's maximum height is 5.3 times its folded length. The secret to the UT 45L's tight package is its section count: the aluminum-alloy legs have six each, and the center column has two.
The PHD-42Q head features four dimensions of adjustment: 360° panning, back-to-front tilt, and tilt to either side. There are independent controls for pan and tilt. The included quick-release plate is the Velbon QB-62. A carry case is also included.
