This Velbon tripod provides maximum camera stability, and users need not worry about bumping the tripod--its rubber-bottomed legs help keep it in place. This video tripod features the Vel-Flo 5 fluid pan head, allowing for smooth panning back and forth, as well as up and down. This Velbon tripod has a geared center shaft, helping users achieve quick and easy repositioning. Users obtain a level mount by referring to the attached leveling bubble.
