The AC-1321 Aluminium Tripod with BA-106A Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight (2.9 lb) tripod that provides reliable support for any camera and lens up to 6.6 lb.
The tripod's 3-section aluminium legs and centre column extend to a maximum height of 57.5", and when folded, the entire system is a compact 23.4". Flip locks on each leg enable extremely fast deployment and retraction of leg stages. Three leg angles are possible, and pull-tab locks secure the legs in their notches. The legs' angles are independently adjustable to accommodate shooting on uneven terrain. At the widest leg angle, the tripod sits extremely close to the ground to facilitate low-angle shooting. The tripod's feet feature rubber tips which are great for shooting on slippery or hard surfaces.
The tripod's rapid centre column extends with a twist of the wingnut locking knob. For protection when it's retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper that protects the centre-post collar. Locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten the head securely to the chassis. By unscrewing the spring-loaded hook at the bottom end, the centre column becomes removable and reversible, for a second method of achieving extremely low-angle shots. The centre column's hook holds a counterweight, in case you need additional system stability.
The BA-106A is a simple ball head with one ratcheting locking knob to control all motion. The knob allows you to unlock the ball so that you can quickly orient your camera properly, retighten the knob, and return to shooting. This enables fast setup changes, and frees you to keep a finger on the trigger while you're making a quick adjustment to the head's orientation. The ball head has a 90° notch which facilitates shooting in portrait orientation. A bull's eye bubble level ensures your camera is level on both the horizontal and vertical axes.
The included quick-release plate attaches to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw. With your camera attached to the quick-release plate, it easily snaps and locks into place on the ball head and is quickly removed by pressing the locking lever. A safety lock on the lever prevents your QR plate and camera from accidental release.
This tripod also includes a fitted, padded carry case with a removable shoulder strap, two heavy-duty zippers, and an interior zipper pocket. A tool clip with two hex wrenches for adjusting the centre column and the leg joints is also included. It snaps onto any of the tripod legs for easy access.
A spring-loaded counterweight hook is located at the bottom of the centre column. The column can be separated into 2 parts to give you a short column for low angle and macro work
Leg cushions on 2 legs provide a firm grip in cold or wet weather
Two included Allen keys attach to a tripod leg, so you're always ready to tighten components
