3POD's P5CRH Tripod camera support system is an incredibly versatile product that gives you double the features of comparable systems at a surprisingly affordable price. The Carbon fiber crafted striped texture is burnished into the surface of the legs and detachable two-tiered center column.
The 5-sectioned legs individually secure and can unfold in a single turn of the metal-jacketed twist locks. Each leg ends in a spiked outdoor-ready foot under a removable nonslip rubber cap.
Superior wear-resistance lock guards built into each leg ward against slippage due to temperature changes or gradual loosening over time. The legs also fold up around the center column at a 180º angle for a compact 12" storage and transport configuration.
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 expect in superior designed tripods, allowing for compensation to uneven surfaces, even edges 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.
The P5CRH's capability makes it suitable for a huge range of projects. Holding up to 22lbs, but weighing in at an impossibly light 2.6lbs, it can be sped out of a gear case and at a moment's notice for perfect, steadied shots. The center column and utilizes the same reinforced twist-locking technology featured on the tripod legs.
K3 Hydraulic Professional Ballhead:
The included K3 professional ballhead is elegantly designed for optimal weight distribution. The scratch-resistant carbon body employs advanced CNC forging technology and a hard protective finish for a wear-free appearance.
The K3 features enhanced hydraulic damping and 360º of smooth, jitter-free rotation. The bubble levels are built directly into the ballhead for easy calibration. A sliding quick-release plate with a universal 1/4" mounting screw is also included with the ballhead, and attaches to the head via a flip lock clamp mechanism.
