Ideal for those shooting both stills and videos, the HFTA18CS2H Hybrid Carbon Fiber Tripod with S2H Pan/Tilt Head from Benro can hold a maximum load of 5.5 lb and extends to 59.1" high. The tripod's reverse-folding legs bring its folded length to 24", and its split center column lets the head sit just 19.9" above the ground at its lowest setting.
Integrated into the top of the center column is a leveling base to allow you to level the head without individually adjusting each leg. The 9-layer carbon fiber legs keep the tripod's weight at 4.2 lb, and the dust-resistant twist locks keep the legs at your desired height. The rubber feet twist to reveal metal spikes, allowing you to use the tripod on a variety of surfaces.
The S2H Hybrid Video/Stills Head is a compact pan/tilt head with 360° panning rotation for smooth camera moves, and there are separate pan and tilt lock levers for lock off shots. The S2H is compatible with Arca-type quick release plates which allow forward and backward movement for camera balance. A bubble level aids in setting up even horizons, and the adjustable pan handle can be mounted to either side of the head using the built-in mounting rosettes.
