The CT-2491 Carbon Fibre Tripod  from Oben is an extremely sturdy support for any DSLR, mirrorless or point-and-shoot camera or camcorder. With a load capacity of 39.6 lb and a maximum height of 72.5", the tripod offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance.

The tripod features ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg. Because legs are non-rotating, all three of a leg's locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist. This enables extremely fast setup of the CT-2491. A thoughtful leg design makes it a simpler task to service and maintain the leg sections.

With its 6x carbon fibre legs and centre column, the CT-2491 is relatively lightweight (3.50 lb) and solid, ready to survive the rigours of professional work. The tripod chassis is cast aluminium alloy for further strength.

The CT-2491's rapid centre column extends with a twist of the butterfly knob. For protecting your camera when the column is retracted quickly, there's a rubber damper under the centre-post collar. Steel locking screws underneath the collar enable you to fasten a camera head more securely.

Pull-in/push-out positive leg locks allow you to set the positions of the three legs independently at three different angles. This allows you to shoot from low angles or on uneven terrain. For stability on softer terrain, the CT-2491 features metal spikes that retract and emerge by twisting the foot's rubber portion.

For extreme low-angle shooting, the centre column can be split into two sections with the provided hex key. The shorter column leaves no protruding parts under the tripod collar, allowing you to extend the legs out to their maximum angle. For a faster method, the centre column is also easily reversible. These features are especially ideal for macro and close-up photography. The retractable metal counterweight hook serves as a stopper at the bottom of the centre column.
