The Ultrek UT-53D is the heavier-duty brother of Velbon’s amazing Ultrek UT-43D II travel tripod. It is extremely compact when folded, yet thanks to the ingenious 6-section reverse-folding legs, it can be extended to become a practical full-height tripod as well as a low-level macro platform.

New innovations include a 2-section telescopic centre column and 6-section legs that fold by reversing through a full 180 degrees. This allows the maximum extended height to become more than times the folded length!

The UT-53D tripod is the ideal travel solution as it packs small enough to fit into most bags and cases.

It comes complete with Velbon’s QHD-53D Ball & Socket head, which includes a DIN standard quick-release platform for easy attachment to your camera.

Staff Comment:

I've got one of these tripods.

I was a bit sceptical when I first saw it, and wondered how much of a difference it would make to me and the kind of images and videos that I took, but I was genuinely surprised.

It is stunningly small enough to fit in my camera case, light enough not to injure myself or cause any pain when I take it out, but strong enough for my DSLR and Super-Telephoto Zoom Lens.

As the legs are independent, I have even used it as a monopod, but used the remaining legs as a control arm to do panning shots - really handy for both stills and videos.

Even my wife has said how good it is, and her knowledge of photography doesn't stretch beyond his phone.

This is a real find, and you will surprised at how much of an asset it will make to your kit.
