A versatile tripod kit for modern travellers, consisting of the ultra-compact Velbon UT-3AR tripod, a universal smartphone/GoPro tripod adapter and a Tamrac Jazz 45 bag to hold your camera gear.
The Velbon UT-3AR tripod weighs just 787g, yet is capable of supporting up to 3kg of camera gear – ideal for use when travelling with mirrorless and DSLR cameras. It is extremely compact when folded, measuring just 29.5cm in length – that’s 2mm less than the length of an A4 sheet of paper! Fully extended, it reaches a useful 135.5cm in height and the 5-section legs feature Velbon’s ‘Ultra’ fast twist-locking system. A simple lift-and-turn of the main collar allows the legs to pivot through 180 degrees and nest cleanly against the centre column when the tripod is fully folded. The lockable centre column is height-adjustable and can be removed and inverted for ultra-low level macro work. The newly designed ball & socket head is lightweight, strong and versatile. It is fitted with an Arca Swiss compatible quick-release platform. The UT-3AR easily fits into a backpack, or can be hung from your belt using the supplied carabiner clip. It also comes with a protective carrying case.
The universal adapter allows a Smartphone or GoPro/Action camera to be mounted onto the tripod. The rubber-lined jaws are spring-loaded and adjustable from 55mm to 87mm. The jaws can also be folded flat for compact storage.
Tamrac’s Jazz 45 camera bag is designed to hold a compact DSLR with 9cm lens attached, extra lens, flash, and accessories. Your camera and lens are held in shooting position with the lens facing down, so that when you open the bag, you just remove the set up and shoot. The interior touch-fastened dividers allow you to configure the bag to suit your gear needs and it features zippered opening and two side mesh storage pockets for memory cards, or batteries. Portability is via the removable, adjustable shoulder strap, or top grab handle.
