The Compact Advanced features an inventive, foldable three-way head for great stability and accuracy in framing your subject. This tripod is targeted at more advanced photo enthusiasts who own an entry-level DSLR with standard zoom lenses up to 200mm.
This three-way head has two independent, ergonomic levers. One controls both pan and tilt movement simultaneously whereas the second controls levelling. With these two control-levers, you can easily obtain level, well-framed images and regulate all movements independently.
This head has been specifically designed to minimise dimensions and maximise portability. A unique mechanism allows the levers to be folded when the head is not in use, making the tripod easier and more convenient to carry.
The high-performance three-way head combined with reinforced, five-section tubes make the Compact Advanced the optimal solution for rigidity whilst also being able to reach the superior height of 165cm/65in when extended.
The Compact Advanced is designed to work perfectly with entry level DSLRs with standard zoom lenses up to 200mm but are compatible also with any device up to 3.0kg/6.61lbs. Please consider that a lot of semi-professional and professional equipment exceeds these requirements.
If you own a Sony Nex 5R/5T you have certainly noticed that these particular models have a very small surface area around the mounting thread. For this reason, in each Compact Light box, you will find a special adaptor that will increase the surface area of these specific cameras in order to better grip the tripod and obtain maximum stability.
The Compact Advanced is available in two colours, black and white, with matching padded carrying bags. To preserve and protect its finishing and original colour we recommend cleaning it with a standard white pencil eraser. Special products or water could damage the finishing.
