The small yet mighty Tortoise Series Tripod has been developed for those looking for a compact, lightweight travel tripod, that punches above its weight when it comes to weight capacity and stability. Without the addition of a center column, the diameter of a folded Tortoise is just 3.1in (8cm) making it extremely portable and easy to stow in a backpack. This feature packed tripod kit includes the GH2F Folding Gimbal Head. The GH2F is a sleek and slim gimbal head that supports an impressive 14 pounds and is ideal for telephoto lenses and spotting scopes. The Benro GH2F is also the perfect solution for high-quality, vertical video shooting for social media. And it folds up in a compact package for quick, convenient travel. To open, simply loosen the locking knob on the bracket base, lift the bracket arm, rotate the arm, mount your camera and you’re ready to shoot! It features separate adjustments for pans and tilts. With a pan scale and bubble level for added precision. Fine tune your camera balance with the plate and arm scales for a smoother, balanced shooting experience. Both the ¼”-20 and ⅜”-16 threads on the bracket arm allow you to mount accessories. The detachable arm can be folded up separately for even tighter storage. When removed, you can mount the camera to the quick release clip on the bracket arm. The arm also features a dual arca-swiss clamp and plate so you can use it as an L-shaped quick release plate with any of Benro’s arca compatible tripod heads. When you’re done shooting a specially designed carry case fits the folded gimbal perfectly and keeps it safe between locations.
