From the Manufacturer
The Sunpak Ultra Series of pro-caliber tripods combines innovative engineering, rugged construction, and a full complement of advanced features, making each unit ideal for casual and professional photographers alike. Based on a unique asymmetrical leg design that provides extra torsional rigidity and added stability at any height, the UltraPro 757 is further enhanced by oversized, ergonomically designed flip leg locks, lockable U-section metal leg braces, and graduated leg sections--all of which make it easy to adjust the height--plus fully calibrated tilt controls for quick and easy setup in the field or studio. The UltraPro 757 also boasts such features as a smooth- action, three-way fluid-effect head with separate friction controls for pan and tilt; locking vertical-angle adjustments and an adjustable-length handle for video applications; a geared center column with an easy-grip locking knob and separate friction adjustment; heavy-duty articulated rubber leg tips with retractable spikes; a removable head with a second 1/4 x 20 mount on the bottom of the center column for low-angle shooting; and separate bubble levels on the top yoke and pan/tilt head.
The Sunpak UltraPro 757 extends to a generous 74.8 inches tall yet measures only 29.4 inches when folded. In addition, the tripod--which comes with a second quick- release plate for maximum shooting convenience when using two cameras--supports up to 11 pounds of camera equipment while weighing a mere 6.2 pounds itself. Finally, the tripod is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
