(From company literature) Velbon Neo Carmagne 630. Also known as Sherpa PRO CF-630. Three-section leg tripod. Carbon fiber legs with inner jut pipe and Magnesium body make the tripod light and steady. Very wide range of heights available from 17.5 to 167 cm. Ideal for most users.
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.
