The perfect tool for real estate, event, landscape and school photographers. Made from aluminum, the High View is light enough to be carried on location but strong enough to support up to 22lbs (10kg). It is equipped with a 3/8”-16 thread mounting plate on top, so that a tripod ball head can be mounted to it. A steel tether is also attached to the stand for an extra level of security while a camera is high in the air. Eyelets in the top plate can also be utilized to tether the top of the stand to the ground using guy wires (not included). The High View features 5 risers and 6 column sections allowing for mounting a camera or lighting accessory, anywhere between 6.2' (1.9m) and 23.9' (7.3m.) For an extra level of stability, the center column can be lowered independently of the legs and hardware. This allows for a fourth point of contact with the ground with minimal effort. Each leg also has its own adjustment built in to ensure stable set up on uneven ground.
