Velbon Ultra LUXi-L User Reviews
Ultra Compact Tripod w/o Compromise
“I have searched many years for a good ultra compact tripod with few compromises. The Ultra Luxi-L fits the bill. When folded it is a mere 15″ in length; yet it expands up to 63″. The tripod head is top-notch with level indicators, quick release, 3-way pan/tilt, etc. It is versatile and adjusts quickly and easily. It’s also very stable. It’s great for hikes and other outdoor activities.” – By Dr. Dix
“This is my favorite tripod. I use it for micro 4/3 format cameras, you might want something heavier for larger and heavier cameras. I took the pan/tilt head off and use a small ball head to make it even smaller and to save weight, but the pan head is very good and comes with bubble levels. It extends as high as I need (Im 5’11″) yet is very compact when collapsed. The simple and fast way the legs extend with just a twist is far better than anything I have used before.” – By Giggley
Innovative leg design and light weight
“The Velbon Ultra line is the best easily portable tripod I’ve ever tried. I also have purchased the Maxi M and Maxi L versions of these sticks on prior occasions. Super quick set-up and breakdown with no latches or nobs to break off. Lock the legs with a simple twist of the leg joints. Extremely small and lightweight.” – By Macauley
“This is a solid tripod. Fast to extend the tripod legs by turning the rubber foot clockwise. It’s very light weight, which is ideal for traveling. I highly recommend this tripod.” – By Karen

Velbon Ultra LUXi-L Features & Specifications
Compact and lightweight, the Velbon Ultra LUXi-L Tripod incorporates the patented “Twist Lock” leg-locking system, which allows its legs to lock and unlock quickly and simply with just a half turn twist. This unique system speeds up the set-up time significantly. This model also features the Trunion Shaft System (TSS), where the main leg-bolts are now positioned directly above the shaft, which makes the tripod even more compact when closed.
The tripod’s unique leg assembly allows for a five-section tripod with a great expansion/contraction ratio (~63″ extended & ~15″ collapsed). It is especially ideal for use as a traveling tripod, to be used with a standard digital SLR camera system.
The included PHD-41Q is a fully-featured 3-way pan/tilt head, with separate (removable) control handles and a quick release system.
* Independent leg spread allows each leg to be positioned at different angles, with a choice of three preset angles.
* Split center column for low-angle work
* Top-leg diameter of 24mm
