Key Features

  • This relaunch of the legendary Video 20 head incorporates a wider payload range and a faster, simpler balancing system. The increased range means that even lightweight cameras-such as video DSLRs-can be used effectively, aided by a 16-step counterbalance system that allows for fine degrees of tuning
  • The Speed Lock CF is among the fastest two-stage tripods in the world. This extremely sturdy and twist-resistant carbon fiber tripod ensures that you're already shooting while everyone else is still setting up. Simply release the three easy-to-reach clamps and you're ready for action
  • The patented clamping system lets you adjust the tripod smoothly and safely, even with a camera mounted, while the carbon fiber construction ensures minimal load-free weight, increasing stability and twist resistance
  • The included mid-level spreader ensures absolute stability regardless of the working surface, while a set of rubber feet will protect floors from scratching. Topping off the system is the ENG/EFP padded bag, which comfortably and quickly contains the whole kit for efficient transport
