Velbon Neo Carmagne 740 User Reviews
“This is a wonderful tripod and it’s very well built. I use this with the Wimberly II head, my 200-400mm VR lens with a D300 and grip. Holds everything well.” – By DNHJR
Excellent alternative to Gitzo
“I use this primarily for nature photography and steadying my camera for macro work. It’s very sturdy, the padded upper legs are a nice feature, and the retractable spikes are fantastic when I need to stabilize in a muddy, slippery environment. It’s not the lightest tripod out there, but it supports my D300 and 300mm lens very well.” – By Jason

Velbon Neo Carmagne 740 Features & Specifications
Velbon’s Neo Carmagne 740 quietly sets a high standard for combined support, versatility & ease of operation. It has what are quite possibly the greatest locking collets created, offering the small amount of movement needed(versus flip levers) without the annoying unwanted rotations & operational order traditionally associated with twisting leg locks. The three positions of leg spread offers normal, semi-low and full-low angle shooting. The two-piece rapid center column detaches appropriately, accessing the full range of height. The legs feature a maximum 32mm diameter tube of cross-layered carbon fiber material.
Velbon’s Carmagne series responds to the demands for a lightweight durable tripod, offering superior strength and specifications while being one third lighter than their conventional aluminum counterparts. Carbon fiber is also more resilient to temperature changes.
* Inner Jut Pipe system allows the leg locks to be tightened or loosened in any order without rotation
