The Velbon VS-443D Aluminum Tripod with QHD-53D Ball Head features a geared center column that tilts a full 180°, so it can be set at a 90° lateral position or at any other angle along the way. It can also be inverted, making the tripod perfect for macro photography. Its legs offer three angle positions, one of which allows the tripod to be set at a very low 9.45".
The VS-443D tripod features four-section aluminum legs with flip locks. With the center column and leg stages fully extended, the tripod reaches a maximum height of 63.2".
The included QHD-53D ball head features a quick-release mechanism with plate, plus a bubble level. The ball head enables 90° tilt to better accommodate lateral shooting. A carrying case is included to help protect the tripod when it is not in use.
