Leveling tripods are for photographers who need fast set up and leveling accuracy, especially on uneven ground. Inside the Leveling tripod’s upper casting is a special free-rotating ball, similar to those normally used in our ball heads. The centre column passes through this ball and can be inclined in any direction at any angle up to 15°. The inclination and vertical movements are completely independent. This patented system is extremely useful for panoramic, architectural and wildlife photography or for birdwatching, because it allows the user to easily and quickly set the camera or scope perfectly horizontal when working on uneven ground. Leveling tripods can also be used in exactly the same way as a standard tripod, and feature our most practical technologies, including G-Lock, 3 leg angle settings, removable feet, and the Ground Level Set. The leveling feature also works in Ground Level Set configuration.
