The New Sprint Pro III series tripods are built to travel. Whether a quick sunrise at the beach or an expedition to Iceland, the Sprint series delivers rock solid performance in a travel ready package. The new Rapid Flip Mechanism (RFM) provides an easy and simple way to adjust the leg angles to go from as low as 6. 5 inches off the ground to as tall as 63. 2 inches with the column extended (measured at the top of the pan head). The Pro III 3-way with Pan head weighs 2. 6 lbs. but can support 4. 4 lbs. of camera equipment. To put that in perspective; a Sony a7rIII full frame camera with 16-35mm f2. 8 lens attached weighs 3 lbs. The head is compact but mighty and can support all that weight at any angle without drift or slacking. Each leg is made up of 4 sections and the height is adjusted using the simple to use flip-lock design for solid slip-free operation. All 3 legs are outfitted with streamlined rubber grips for easy handling. The center column can be separated for low-angle work and inverted so that you can shoot straight down over your subject. Great for shooting macro. The Sprint Pro III 3-way BK sports a matte black finish, includes the SH-704E 3-way Pan head with quick release plate. The Sprint Pro III tripod series is ready to go anywhere and look good doing it.
