The best choice for DSLR or for lightweight camcorders. Recommended for lenses up to 300mm maximum. Series 2 offers an excellent maximum load capacity and very good torsional rigidity. Weight and size are convenient for travelling or trekking. Available in 3- and 4-section models at standard heights. Series 2 is the ideal solution for photographers that are looking for a solid and yet lightweight tripod.
The centre column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved centre column for improved stability.
The new tripod upper disc is called 'Power Disc'. It is made of machined solid aluminum and it now features two locking screws, one to lock the head, the other to safely lock the disc onto the column. The 'Power Disc' gives a rock solid connection of the whole system for additional safety and stability.
We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
