About the Redged RTA-428

The Redged RTA-428 Steady 4-Section Aluminum Tripod is a versatile, lightweight tripod that supports a great deal of weight for such a portable model. Composed of aluminum alloy, the 4-section legs and center column extend to a generous maximum height of 63.4" and fold down to 21.7". The RTA-428 includes many features that professionals expect: Anti-rotation legs for quick setup, a high load capacity of 26.5 lb, a reversible center column and a counterweight hook for attaching a ballast for added stability during windy shoots.

In addition, both the twist locks and the center column are designed to prevent sand and dust from invading the RTA-428. At 4.0 lb, this Steady tripod is a great choice for backpackers and other traveling photographers.

Redged RTA-428 Features

  • Aluminium tubes: Lightweight, heavy-duty aluminium alloy
  • Non-rotation legs: Because of the non-rotation system, all locks of the legs can be opened at the same time, in one movement. Setting up is a matter of seconds
  • Easy lock rings: The Redged ring locking system keeps dust and sand from entering the tripod, ensuring perfect operation. It requires no extra power to achieve a safe locking
  • Column locking ring with wings: The wings ensure tight locking of the center column when heavy photographic gear is placed on the tripod. Rubber sealing prevents sand entering the locking mechanism
  • Three leg positions: Besides the normal position, the tripod offers the extra low position for low viewpoints and ground level macro subjects and a middle position for table top photography and macro photography (flowers, insects, etc.)
  • Stability hook: Specially designed for attaching extra weight (a photo bag, or a bag with sand, stones), to increase the stability of the tripod
  • Reversible mounting screw: With 1/4 and 3/8 threads, so any head or other accessory can be attached
  • Rubber feet: Universal rubber feet, suitable for many surface types
  • Leveling bubble: High precision leveling bubble helps making perfectly leveled shots. The leveling system made of three independent leveling bubbles on the quick release plate and one in the ball stem, always guarantee perfectly leveled images
  • All weather foam grip: Luxury leg covers for easy handling and convenience at lower temperatures
  • Reversible column: By inverting the center column, it is possible to realize extra low camera positions and low macro shots. Also great for making reproductions of flat objects
