This table-top tripod fits all spotting scopes, digital cameras, SLR's and compacts fitted with a standard tripod fitting point.
This well-made tripod has unique features designed to satisfy the most demanding users.
tripod is of rigid all-metal construction: aluminium and steel and yet only weighs 650g and is capable of carrying up to at least 4kg comfortably and in our tests worked fine with telescopes and camera combinations well in excess of this weight.
The tripod features an adjustable resistance clutch controlled altitude tilt system that has a slow-motion control knob to allow micro-positioning of your equipment's altitude position. Slow-motion and rapid altitude adjustment keeps you on the action: The large clutch control knob (see picture) can be adjusted so that your equipment is held firmly in position but can still be moved rapidly to a new position without using the the altitude slow-motion control knob.
Combined 'grab' and lock-ring for quick and safe height adjustment: the height of the center column can be adjusted rapidly via a clever combined slip and lock ring (see picture). When the ring is rotated to the loose or unlocked position the height can be adjusted by simply lifting the equipment - the moment you let go the slip ring holds the column in position (note: without addition contact with lock ring!) to move the equipment back down, simply lift ring slightly and lower equipment, let go of ring and the column is held securly - you can now rotate the ring to lock the column in position. This clever system allows the tripod to be adjusted to the best position for every view and photograph almost instantly - making it an ideal companion for the serious user.
Rubber feet on the legs allow the tripod to be used on almost any flat surface, even a car bonnet or roof.
great about the SL1200 tripod?
Rigidity and how well it supports the equipment placed on it! This tripod is light enough to go anywhere and provided the user has access to a flat surface the user has a well specified tripod that easily out-punches competitors in its weight and size class. The special features (clutched altitude and slow-mo control etc) make it ideal for the wildlife spotting scope observer and digiscoper.
A great table-top tripod for all cameras and spotting scopes!
