Velbon tripods are the recognized leaders in high quality tripod design. Their light weight material makes them the perfect accessory for keen photographers out on the road.

Velbon have just released two new models the Ultra Luxi-L and the slightly smaller Ultra Luxi-M, both tripods are ideal for traveling expeditions as they have a unique trunnion leg design. The tripod legs are clip free giving each leg the ability to be extended or collapsed in one twist action, this useful feature enables the tripods to fold down, compress and take anywhere.

Both models safely support camera loads of up to 2kg in weight and each leg angle and height is independently adjustable, making taking photos on rough and uneven terrain a breeze. They feature a 3 way head pan for accurate image composition in vertical and horizontal planes. An extra low position is also achievable when the centre column is detached.
