(From company literature) Velbon Neo Carmagne 840. Also known as Sherpa PRO CF-840. Four-section legs made from Carbon Fiber and with inner jut pipe. Extraordinarily tall (up to 200 cm) with high stability. Designed to be tall, this means a slightly higher lowest position and heavier weight than CF-830. When folded achieves a length of just 68.3 cm! The body is made from Magnesium alloy which reduces weight to the minimum.
The meaning of Carmagne: Carbon + Magnesium. Legs constructed from carbon fibers and body consists of magnesium. Carbon fibers produced by pultrusion technology achieves extreme light weight and robust structure. Specific gravity of magnesium is only 1.7. This is two thirds weight of aluminum and one quarter weight of steel. Also, magnesium is far superior to aluminum or steel in terms of vibration-absorption, anticorrosion, dimension-stability with temperature change and overall strength.
Neo Carmagne series tripods feature Velbon's unique "Inner Jut Pipe" system. This makes the legs more sturdy and stops them from rotating when the locking nuts are tightened or loosened.
Each leg is individually adjustable, enabling your tripod to achieve its ideal position, even on difficult terrain.
By removing the splittable centre column, the legs can be opened to their maximim spread, allowing you to shoot at ultra low angles. Minimum height can be achieved by splitting the center column.
