This stunning tripod is an exciting new type of travel tripod. UT-43D II is extremely compact when collapsed, but thanks to the ingenious 6-zone opposite legs, they can be extended to become a practical full-height tripod and very low for macro photography. It has a 2-zone telescopic center column and 6-zone legs that fold by turning them 180 degrees. This allows the maximum height 5.3 times the folded length. UT-43D II is the perfect tripod for travel, because it is small enough to fit into most bags and backpacks. It comes complete with Velbons QHD-43D ball head which has a quick plate for easy mounting of the camera. Case included.
