It is well known that weak leg joints are the cause of unsteadiness in tripods. The outstanding feature of the Ultra Series is extremely strong joints because each leg section extends the entire inside length of the outer leg casing. Thanks to a design that incorporates tube legs which engage slightly off centre, Velbon innovated a mechanism that enables each leg to be locked with a simple qick twist.
Velbon’s Ultra 353 Mini-Q tripod is an ultra-compact and rugged mini tripod which is aimed at the serious amateur and professional photographer. This tripod uses Velbon’s unique TSS (Trunnion Shaft System), which makes it tall and sturdy when extended, yet when folded, the Ultra 353 Mini-Q packs down to just 19cm in length. The multi-angle legs and splittable centre-column allow low-level working down to just 13.5cm. It comes complete with the Velbon QHD-33M ball & socket head which also has a quick release platform (QB-42). This tripod is ideal for macro, travel and tabletop use.
