The Velbon GEO E540 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod features lightweight, sturdy legs that are actually composed of a carbon fiber and basalt composite. This hybrid material affords greater strength and rigidity for supporting DSLR cameras outfitted with heavier telephoto lenses. With a maximum height of 55.5" and a load capacity of 16 lb, the tripod still weighs in at only 2.8 lb.
The legs of the E540 feature quick-lever locks and a spiral-etched surface that makes their retraction and extension smoother and faster. The legs fold down to only 16", so the tripod fits easily into a carry-on bag or even a backpack for convenient transport.
For shooting on rough terrain, each leg hides a spike. This emerges by twisting and retracting the rubber foot, which is ideal for smooth, slippery surfaces.
