    Product Description

    Show the professional look with black finishing - then set up, shoot and go. If you shoot photos and movies with an entry level DSLR and standard lenses, the Compact Action is your ideal tripod. It is ergonomic joystick head with scroll-wheel locking mechanism is very intuitive and easy-to-use. While it is comfortable grip allows you to effortlessly capture both smooth movies and images.

    The enhanced circular quick release plate lets you attach and release your camera in an instant without any need for coins or screwdrivers. Thanks to its shape, camera orientation will never be an issue again - simply close the lever above the joystick handle. In addition, the regulating dial, together with the quick release plate, allows you to adjust the camera to the tripod and maximise its stability.

    The photo/movie selector gives you maximum freedom in all circumstances. Switching to the desired mode only takes a second and ensures that you can always shoot photos and smooth movies.

    The Compact Action is available in three colours: Black, white and red/anthracite and comes with a colour-matched padded carrying bag.

    We also include a adapter for higher specification cameras. If you own a Sony Nex 5R/5T, for example, you will know there is a very small surface area around the mounting thread. That is why each compact action includes a adapter to increase the surface area of the mounting head to provide better grip and maximum stability.

    In addition, if you own a compact device with the tripod thread in an off-centre position, please be aware that there are some limitations on how close to the side of the camera the 6.35 mm thread can be. The minimum distance of the 6.35 mm thread from the lateral edge of your device must be 13 mm to guarantee the declared performance.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, well built tripod for filming and photography!
    Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on September 4, 2020
    As I started to film weddings, I needed to find a high-quality tripod that was a good height. I also wanted something that I could take travelling that didn’t take up too much space or too heavy.

    My favourite feature has to be the easy quick release plate. As you can see in the top of the tripod, it’s just a smile, small plate the size of a penny that attaches to the bottom of your camera. The reason I love this is because it makes it really easy to change batteries without having to remove the plate and also makes it easy to quickly switch to handheld shots.

    Another great part is the hybrid head this tripod comes with. It’s great for getting smooth panning shots, while also easily being switched to a fixed position for landscape or portrait photos.

    The height, size and weight are perfect for me. It’s nice and compact so easy to carry around with the included bag. It’s a very lightweight design that makes it easy to carry other great with. Also, it can be raised to 155cm, with the fact it’s so compact was quite surprising.

    Overall, the tripod has exceeded my expectations and has been very useful so far. The only thing I would like to see added is a way to lock out the legs when spreading the three of them apart. However, I love all the features I talked about and has made my life a lot easier. It is a tripod I would recommend to others.
