Home Mounts & Tripods Tripods & Piers Tripods Fotomate VT-680-222R Extra Heavy Duty Professional Tripod
A very heavy duty solution to mounting giant Binoculars and large Spotting scopes with an 8kg capacity and a generous height of 197cm, ideal for most 100mm Binoculars offering exceptional stability.
The Fotomate VT-680-222R is an excellent, professional standard tripod for video cameras & DSLRs, as well as for spotting scopes, small telescopes and most large observation binoculars. Features a generous maximum payload capacity of 8kg and an impressive maximum height of 197cm. This tripod does not feature a geared centre column so the tripod offers greater rigidity and stability, and lends itself to carrying heavier equipment. The superb included extra heavy-duty 2-Way tripod head, which is the same as supplied with the Fotomate VT-2900 model, is extremely robust and well-engineered. Operation is extremely smooth and well damped, and can be panned 360° with a wide range of tilt adjustment. Supplied with nylon carrying case. 2-Way Extra Heavy-Duty Oil Fluid Panhead Payload Capacity: 8kg Adjustable Panhead Tension & Lock Multi-Position Left or Right Mountable Pan Handle Quick Release Plate with ¼ & 3/8 Attachment Screws and Video Pin Security Retention Mechanism on Quick Release Plate Maximum Height (Fully Extended): 197cm Minimum Height (Fully Retracted): 93.5cm 360° Panning, -65° Forward Tilt, +90° Vertical Elevation 3-Section Multi-Tubular Aluminum Legs with Heavy Duty Leg Locks Tri-Leg Brace Non-Slip Rubber Feet Bubble level for Accurate levelling Weight: 4.78kg Supplied with Nylon Carrying Case
Serious bit of kit I bought this tripod for use with a heavy pair of 20 X 80 binoculars for astronomy purposes and it doesn’t disappoint. I am 6ft 1 and can easily adjust for use standing up and high angles. Double tube lower legs more stable than single tubes. Head is smooth and well damped. Seems well made (06/01/2019) Andie Warner - Essex
