The Ultrek 45L 6-Section Aluminum Tripod with PHD-42Q 4-Way Head is a sturdy tripod that folds out to a working height of 61.6″ from the tiniest of packages. At less than a foot long (11.6″) when its twist-lock legs are retracted and folded up 180° so that the feet meet the included head, the UT 45L is ideal for stowing in a backpack or even a tote bag, for the ultimate in low-profile yet high-performance camera support. Lightweight for traveling, the tripod weighs just 2.7 lb and supports up to 6.6 lb.
The tripod’s maximum height is 5.3 times its folded length. The secret to the UT 45L’s tight package is its section count: the aluminum-alloy legs have six sections each, and the center column has two.
The PHD-42Q pan/tilt head features 360° panning, front-to-back tilt, and side-to-side tilt with independent locks for each movement. A QB-62 quick-release plate and a carrying case are included.
