(From company literature) Velbon Sherpa 250R. Strong and versatile tripods for both professionals and advanced amateurs.


This is a shorter version of Sherpa 450. Velbon Sherpa tripods are equipped with the 3-way panhead PH157Q with Quick-release platform system that incorporates some clever features such as a one-touch handle that allows locking of both pan and tilt movements with one twist. The handle is mounted on the left which allows the user to keep their right hand free to operate the camera.


Most models in the Sherpa range feature a slanting tooth geared elevator for smooth adjustment and also a friction adjuster that enables tension adjustment of centre-column elevator.
