The convertible P4CFH Tripod with H2 ball head from 3POD is a multipurpose, compact camera support system forged with industrial-strength carbon fiber and anodized finishing to make it lighter, harder, more portable and more durable than traditional constructions. Suitable for payloads up to a hefty 28.6 lbs, this tripod / monopod is a true space-saver without sacrificing strength or stability.
The P4CFH uses a cutting edge "flat-travel" design that does away with the bulkier traditional "round" folding style. Its towering 62 inch body collapses magically into an diminutive, completely flat 18 inch package, perfect for stacking with other equipment or tucking neatly into a suitcase.
The removable 2-tiered center column allows this versatile item to switch between tripod and monopod configuration while taking advantage of the column's added height for high-angle shots.
Textured rubber pads at the base of each leg grip for a slip-free hold on smooth surfaces, and can be removed to reveal spikes that anchor the tripod tightly in grass or uneven ground. The legs themselves lock in place with a 1/2 twist, with special metal jacketed clamps that won't rust, loosen, or wear out over time and boasts advanced protection against the destructive forces of heat, cold, dust and moisture.
This is a full featured tripod capable of tackling all the challenges of the trail. Each leg angle is individually adjustable and fixed, as you would expectin superior designed tripods, allowing for compensation to uneven surfaces, evenledges and stairs, in angular placement with 3 position settings. The asymmetrical placement of the legs serves to create a offset to the center of gravity and more flexible positioning in the wild.
