The Acebil i-405DX Tripod with RMC-P3PL Zoom Control Handle can support cameras weighing up to 4.4 lb (2 kg). The 2-stage design adjusts the height from a minimum of 23.2" (59 cm) to a maximum height of 60.2" (153 cm). An entry-level tripod, it is best suited for amateur use of handycams and camcorders.
Quick-lock levers on a dual stage leg system allow you to make specific height adjustments rapidly and easily, while the pan and tilt lock knobs let you adjust the pan and tilt movements. Changing the camera position from tripod to handheld becomes easy via a quick release slide plate system. The fixed counterbalance with a built-in spring maintains the position of the camera when your hand is removed from the pan bar so that you capture perfect videos.
A bubble level helps you in getting the perfect alignment and placement for the camera. Additional stability to the tripod is provided by an integral mid-level spreader, while retractable rubber feet and steel spikes allow the tripod to be used in any terrain. The RMC-P3PL Zoom Control Handle with its touch-sensitive design allows you to control the zoom speed of the lens. This universal controller works well with the LANC and Panasonic Mini DV or HDV cameras.
A record start and stop button allows you to initiate and conclude video recording from the camera that is connected to the handle via an expandable cable. Equipped with a variable speed zoom control knob, you can effortlessly zoom in and zoom out on a subject for precise viewing.
