Re: Hiking/travel tripod: Velbon UT series another option!

Never heard of the brand. Thanks for the additional suggestion!

Velbon is one of the older makers of tripods in the world, I had Velbons in the 70s ...

The one mentioned fits sideways into a daypack, I use the Really Right Stuff heads on the Velbon now. A friend of mine showed me the tripod on a recent trip to the US and I loved it for the sheer size and useability!
