At the bottom of the center column, there is a ¼ - 20” mounting stud to attach a camera to achieve a unique angle when viewing or imaging.
Adjustable Tripod Leg Angles
Each leg of the Hummingbird tripod can be set at two different fixed angles as well as a fully extended position. Each leg has a leg angle adjustment latch, which is located at the top of the tripod leg, which allows you to lay the leg flat on a surface. There is a bubble leveller to ensure the tripod is level at any level and extension.
