Velbon's new tripod is incredibly compact. It's patented 6-section trunnion shaft system means it folds to a height of just 29.5cm so it will easily fit into most bags and cases yet it can be extended to become a practical full-height tripod 5.3 times its folded length, as well as a low-level macro platform.
It also has 180 degree reversible legs, a 2-section telescopic centre column, a versatile QHD-53D ball & socket head and a DIN standard platform for easy attachment to your camera. A soft carrying case is also included.
The product carries a suggested retail price of £179.99. For details of the Ultrek UT-43D and the full range of Velbon tripods, please visit the new Velbon website
