The Slim tripod legs are equipped with aluminum (anodized) twist locks. A half turn is enough to open or fix the legs. The center column is twist-proof and can also be used from below for shots close to the ground. A counterweight hook is also provided. The rubber feet are permanently mounted. The tripod legs can be locked in 3 positions so you can adjust each leg individually to suit the conditions on location. The removable ball head is equipped with my handy control screw for quick adjustment and a panoramic scale. The head comes with a blue anodized camera plate (Arca-Swiss style) with 1/4" camera screw (D-ring).
