Extremely compact when folded, yet thanks to the ingenious 6-section reverse-folding legs, it can be extended to become a practical full-height (156.9cm) tripod as well as a low-level macro platform. New innovations include a 2-section telescopic centre column and 6-section legs that fold by reversing through a full 180 degrees. This allows the maximum extended height to become more than 5 times the folded length. The UT-63D tripod is an ideal travel solution as it packs small enough to fit into most bags and cases. It comes complete with Velbon’s QHD-63D Ball & Socket head and soft carrying case.
