Velbon Ultra LUXi-M User Reviews
Exceptional height and stability, given small folded size
“The Ultra Luxi M has a collapsed length suitable for most knapsacks; expected very good durability; and very good stability. It has an exceptional ratio of height to folded length, and a very good ratio of strength to weight. Most of the design and construction are excellent. There are limited instructions, but the features are easy to figure out. For what it’s worth, I think this tripod is cute. I am very pleased with it. I would buy it again, and I also may buy one as a present..” – By Ralph_S
Great Little Tripod
“I use the Velbon Ultra LUXi-M Tripod as a traveling tripod because it is light and folds to 14.1 inches. I replaced the 3 way Pan/Tilt head with a small ball head. I use it a lot when taken pictures to ensure that the pictures are sharp. This tripod because of its smallist and light weight is really easy to carry. Highly Recommended.” – By Stephen Kovac Jr.

Velbon Ultra LUXi-M Features & Specifications
Compact and lightweight, the Velbon Ultra LUXi-M 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 (~54.5″ extended & ~13.6″ 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.
