How compact can a tripod be when it is folded up? The UT Series is the answer that represents the maximum pursuit of all design possibilities. The legs consist of 6 sections, meaning the the length of each leg is shorter when folded. Legs can be folded by reversing 180 degrees, giving the UT Series tripod the form of an acrobat. Capable of being opened to eye-level height, making this tripod ideal as a travel companion. The expansion ratio - the relation between the size when folded and maximum expansion - is an astonishing 5. While the UT tripod is normally used with a ball head, a version with a 3-way pan-and-tilt head is also available.
