Built with the photo enthusiast in mind, the Able 300 DX uses many recent design advances together in this utility tripod.
The legs of the Able 300 DX set up and fold down securely. Just loosen and tighten leg lock knob to extend or shorten them. Three-position adjustable angle leg locks make for easy set up on uneven ground or steps. These leg locks also allow the height of the tripod to be lowered. Combine this feature with the Able 300 DX Short Column (optional accessory), and the tripod can be lowered to just 14 inches (350 mm) for very low-angle or macro photography in the field.
For even lower angle photography or copy work, the standard gearless center column can be reversed (turn upside down), so that the head is at the bottom of the center column. This gives you the ability to photograph with the camera just a few inches off the ground.
* Excellent choice for photography students.
* Recommended for 35mm and medium format cameras.
