Time-Lapse Tips and Tools
The Oben AC-1431 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with BA-108 Ball Head provides supports up to 8.8 lb, rises to a maximum height of 59.5" with the center column fully extended, and folds down to a compact 21" for transport. Flip locks on the four-section legs facilitate rapid setup and break down. Three leg angles: normal (80°), low (55°) and extra low (24°) are available via angle adjustment tabs at the joint of each leg.The center column can be reversed with a twist of the butterfly knob, or it can be split in two to be used as a short column for macro and low angle shooting as low as 8.1". Any combination of leg angles can be combined to accommodate uneven terrain, stairs or obstructions. A built-in bubble level helps you square up your compositions. For extra stability the center column employs a spring-loaded counterbalance hook.
The included BA-108 ball head features a single-action lever that controls its rotation and 360 degree panning while a robust ball-locking mechanism secures it solidly. The head's four bubble levels ensure accurate panoramas. The BA-108's built-in quick release comes with a camera plate that features a standard 1/4"-20 screw and a retractable, removable video pin to provide additional stability for camcorders. Since the head is removable, locking screws underneath the collar thwart torsion when re-attaching. The tripod comes with a carry case and shoulder strap for storage and transport.
