No compromises in a smaller package. Having the same heavy metal construction of THE PROFESSIONAL, THE PROFESSIONAL-II is a warhorse of a tripod that was created for the uncompromising professional that needs more portability. If your photography does not require as much height as THE PROFESSIONAL or THE PROFESSIONAL 4, this model will serve you well.
With professional features like worm gear elevation on the center column, all metal leg and fitting construction, and the ability to hold more than 15 pounds of properly balanced equipment, this tripod will give years of unyielding service. A maximum working height of 72.25 inches (that's 6 feet) and a folded length of 37 inches, this tripod makes taking this kind of durability on the road just a little bit easier.
The leg angle locks allow you to set the tripod to 3 different height positions. Each lock is independent, so you can set up quickly and easily on steps or uneven terrain.
The groove, in an already dynamically strong circular tubing, prevents the leg from spinning around, and allows simple and secure locking. It also allows you to extend the leg from any section, regardless of the order.
The 2nd leg section has reference grooved marks at 10cm intervals, to allow you easy, and even height adjustments.
Center column elevation works only at the turn of a crank, thus there are no accidental falls.
The professional series has both large and small thread. When not in use, the screw fits into the side of the head where it's out of the way but always handy.
The reversible head attachment screw on the center elevation post lets you use heads with either large or small screw holes.
The head has 2 bubble levels for easy leveling, recessed against damage. By exchanging the center elevation column to a short center column (optional accessory), you can obtain a very low height of 385mm.
