The Phot-R PT Series Tripods are designed to be compact, light and portable specifically for photographers who travel and need a tripod with them at all times. The legs fold in reverse to surround the centre column and ball head, even while the quick release plate is attached. It will fit into a backpack or small suitcase without any trouble as when folded down the tripod is only 45cm tall, and when fully extended, with the grooved centre column up at the highest point the tripod will stand at a height of 155cm. Unlike some other tripods the PT Series can also be converted into a full-sized monopod by removing the grooved centre column and detachable leg.
The high strength forged aluminium that these tripods are made from not only makes them sturdy and strong enough to support weights of up to 12kg but also makes them very light, weighing in at only 1.57kg. The tripod comes with its own carry case so it can be conveniently transported without getting scratched or scuffed.
The PH Series Ball Head that comes with the tripod is robust, quick and easy to use and will deliver sharp images by keeping the camera securely locked in the chosen position. The head features an Arca-Swiss style compatible quick release mechanism for fast camera attachment/detachment as well as an integrated spirit level to ensure that your images are perfectly horizontal.
The PT Series Tripods can also be used for extremely low angle macro shooting thanks to a feature which allows you to remove the grooved centre column completely, by simply unscrewing the weight hook, and attach the head directly to the tripod. This means at the lowest setting the tripod is only 23cm tall, allowing the camera to sit less than a foot from the ground for those close up shots. If that isn’t enough for you the grooved centre column is also reversible, permitting the camera to get even closer to the ground.
Can turn into a Monopod
By simply removing the grooved centre column and the detachable leg and fixing them to one another the tripod can be turned into a monopod in less than a minute.
Create perfect panoramic shots with ease thanks to the fluid head system for precise image alignment.
Lockable Leg Angle Positions
The tripod legs can be independently locked three different angles. So you will be able to set up the tripod almost anywhere, no matter how confined the space is or how uneven the ground is.
Integrated Spirit Level
There is a spirit level integrated into the tripod to help ensure the that all images taken using this tripod will be perfectly horizontal.
Centre Column Weight Hook
A weight can be attached to the small hook, found at the bottom of the centre column, to increase the tripods stability.
