Flexible, wrappable legs with rubberized ring and foot grips- stabilize hybrid cameras weighing up to 2.2lbs (1kg) on virtually any surface, to capture memories that would have been previously unthinkable * Integrated aluminum ball head with ±90° tilt and 360° pan - quickly and precisely orient your camera and nail beautiful compositions with strict control over portrait and landscape setups * Dual action adjustment knob - easily locks the ball head in place, securing it tightly.
