Intuitive, capable and totally reliable. The lightweight tripod with fluid video head and carbon legs does exactly what you need it to do, without any worries, even when the pressure’s on. This nifty tripod with fluid video head combines all the classic features you’d expect from a professional standard tripod, with every extra you can imagine to make your job even easier. Both lightweight and robust, it can support up to 5kg, while at the end of the day, you can swiftly compact it down into a neat, compact package to take away.

Precision is guaranteed while you work, thanks to patented Bridging Technology™ that allows super smooth movement and fine shots even in the toughest conditions. Fluid cartridges in both pan and tilt axis give you all the control you need when getting into position, and a wider platform comfortably carries HDSLR bodies. It can even support tricky to handle interchangeable lens cameras thanks to a smart sliding plate. And it’s a versatile tripod too. An 9.5mm easy link connector and standard 6.4mm fitting gives you the flexibility to pair with attachments like external monitors as needed.

Adding to its impressive list of design features, you can slide your camera into position from above, due to a user-friendly side lock. It’s totally secure when in place, eliminating the need for an extra lock, and saving you time when setting up. Plus, the tripod itself is a 3-section stand with strong, but lightweight carbon fibre leg tubes. This makes transporting this tripod with fluid video head extra easy. And when you’re ready to pack away, simply flip the tension adjustable leg levers and compact it down, before slotting it into its very own made-to-measure carry case.
