At maximum leg spread and the use of the short center column is designed to allow low shooting angles.

Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the new rail is the lightest of its kind, according to the manufacturer, it offers four mounting points for the camera designed for shooting video or tethered shooting in the studio. The supplied Allen key can be fixed in a separate holder.
