HAS THE TRIPOD JUST BEEN RE-INVENTED - IS THIS THE FASTEST TRIPOD IN THE WEST!?
A really fresh, clever and innovative design combined with the use of extra high quality materials certainly make this remarkable tripod a perfect choice for professional and enthusiast photographers who demand a stable, ultra compact and yet lightweight tripod without compromising on quality and performance. Please read onwards to learn more about just how amazing this tripod really is...
One key feature that really makes this unique tripod stand out is the amazing "Twist-Lock" leg locking system. By turning the legs clockwise you can lock all legs in one movement and to unlock/extend them turn counter-clockwise. This means that a 5 section leg can be unlocked and then extended and then re-locked in around 2 seconds - VERY impressive in action!. This superb locking system massively reduces set up and take down time and with the quick release camera plate means one of the fastest set up times ever is achieved!!
Another feature is how a tripod can go from just 33cm when packed down, up to a fully extended height of 163cm (working height 156cm). This achievement is possible because the legs fold all the way back up to the head and the centre column is collapsible. As well the "Twist-Lock" locks do not take up any space like a conventional tripods quick release locks. All the legs retract completely into one another - so very clever!
