The key feature is the 90° centre column – now with a new mechanism – which can be extended vertically or horizontally to open up a wide range of framing possibilities. The tripod legs are fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the new Quick Power Lock levers. From folded, the sections of each leg of the tripod can be released in a single movement. The QPL lever design also offers more powerful locking of each section, meaning the tripod is stable and rigid. Intuitive ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the preset angles, for considerable positioning freedom. A rotating bubble level is built in to the top of the centre column for precise framing. The top casting has an Easy Link connector for supporting a photo or video accessory (such as an LED light, flash or reflector) on an extending arm or bracket.
