Velbon Ultra Maxi-M Expert Reviews

Photoreview reviews the Velbon Ultra Maxi-M and writes;
“If you read the round-up of compact tripods published in Issue 37 of Photo Review Australia magazine, you will conclude (as we did) that Velbon’s Ultra Maxi M represents the best compromise in the current market. Its build quality is a cut above competing budget-priced models while its head, although not perfect, provides adjustments that are genuinely useful. If you can tolerate these imperfections, the Ultra Maxi M is worth a look.”

Velbon Ultra Maxi-M Features & Specifications

Compact and lightweight, the Velbon Ultra Maxi-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 & ~13.2″ collapsed). It is especially ideal for use as a traveling tripod, to be used with a standard digital SLR camera system.

The included PHD-31Q is a fully-featured all-metal “revolving” pan/tilt head. In addition to the usual 3-way pan and tilt functions this head has a second revolving plane, basically allowing for any position. It has swing function of 90° to right and left, and 360° pan action. The quick release platform is compact and thin, but is made of Aluminum to maintain durability.

* 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 21mm
