If you’ve been watching my videos for a while, you’ll know that I tend to go on about my Velbon Ultra Maxi tripod a lot.
I love this thing!
For me it’s been a game changer. I never think anymore that I don’t want to take a tripod because it’s too heavy or too bulky. The Velbon tripod is incredibly light, small and quick to get set up.
Have a look at the video above to see just how quickly the twist lock legs can go up and go down.
I’ve paired it up with an awesome fluid video head from Velbon (FHD 52Q) as well. It’s not super heavy duty, but works just fine for a dslr or micro four thirds camera.
Guys I can’t recommend this tripod enough, go out and buy one if you’re in the market for a lightweight tripod.
