The Velbon M43 is part of the M-Series family of tripods, which feature a clean and simplified design. Thanks to the use of modern materials, their lightweight and sturdy nature makes them ideal for travelling. The M43 includes a ball & socket head with quick release platform (QB-32). The legs are 4-section, with Quick-Lever locking for speedy extension and folding. A special new rivet system ensures long term durability where the legs meet the tripod body. There is a sliding centre column to allow fine height adjustment and a spirit level to ensure all legs are level – especially useful on uneven ground. The M43 also comes complete with a carry case.
