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.

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
