Velbon EX430 Aluminium Tripod with 3 way Pan Head
The Velbon EX430 Aluminum Tripod with 3-Way Pan Head is a 1.2kg lightweight camera support with a three way pan and tilt head (The PHD-46). It can reach a maximum height of 151cm (59.4″) with the geared center column fully extended, and it has a minimum working height of 10.5cm (4.09″). This portable tripod folds down to 56cm (22″). The EX430 will support a maximum of 2kg, with a recommended loading weight of 1kg. The camera plate turns 90° to the right for shooting in portrait mode. A QB-46 quick-release plate is included. The diameter of the tripod legs is 0.78″ (20mm).
On EX 430 and higher, the camera plate turns to the right instead of left.
This leaves left hand free to adjust tripod and camera controls while taking images in portrait mode.
Importantly when using telephoto lenses the camera remains securely attached to plate due to effect of gravity tightening the screw connection.
