The award-winning U 212 DX tripod's world-renowned design has carefully evolved for more than 20 years. Designed primarily for light weight 35mm SLR cameras or compact film and digital cameras, it features a number of exciting design concepts that were born with the original U 212 and have been copied into other tripods world-wide.
The U212 Deluxe was one of the first tripods to feature speed-release leg locks on three-section "non-twist" square legs. These legs will not turn and have retractable rubber leg tips and spikes for sure footing on any surface.
The quick-release camera post is smaller than most quick-release plates and can be left on the camera almost all the time. The camera is always ready to be mounted on the U-212 DX's ultra-smooth 3-way pan-head. The head has a lens-calibrated panorama guide to make panoramas from multiple pictures. A geared center column makes fine height adjustments easy.
A threaded mounting post on one leg lets you bring the camera down to just 8 inches (200 mm) from the ground for low angle photos, macro photography in the field, or copy work. The head also includes a bubble level for accurate vertical positioning.
A unique lens-calibrated panorama guide eliminates the angular calculations normally required for effective panoramic photos.
Supports long telephoto/zoom lenses at two points for stability; ideal for nature photography.
Useful to avoid "red eye" problems by moving the flash away from the camera.
