Velbon Sherpa 200R Photographic Tripod

Velbon Sherpa 200R Photographic Tripod

Due to high demand and global product shortages due to the pandemic, please call for availability.

The Velbon Sherpa 200R tripod is one of our favorite tripods. It's both light and sturdy, ideal for payloads up to 5kg. Initially designed for photography, it has made in-roads in nature viewing, on account of it's affordability, ease of use, and low weight.

The tripod features three-section telescopic legs with quick release clamps. The head features pan-and-tilt operation, plus a landscape-portrait flip photographic platform. The quick release plate makes mounting/dismounting your equipment quick and easy.

Pan and tilt is performed simply by twisting the handle to disengage the clamp.

If you own a wobbly tripod with plastic parts, upgrade to a Sherpa for increased viewing pleasure.

Ideal for use with binoculars, spotting scopes, cameras and telephoto lenses.
