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.
