Tripod Report 242REPORT levelling column
Product DescriptionThe tripod Report 242 is equipped with the module insert 4, i.e. with a centre column which has a length of 50 cm and a diameter of 25 mm, made of precision-drawn light-metal tubing, and a levelling ball. The centre column is additionally equipped with a rotating panorama plate. By means of the centre column, the levelling ball can be tilted by 30° in all directions. The support plate made of aluminium has a diameter of 68 mm and is equipped with a fixed fastening screw (size to be selected) as well as three locking screws which secure the mounted system against unintentional loosening. The spirit level ensures a quick and precise adjustment.
When using an extra-short centre column (10 cm), it is possible to work near ground level.
Single tripod leg extension.
The specified maximum height applies if the centre column with a length of 50 cm is extended.
The light magnesium mounting head serves as module basis for 14 different inserts. The module insert can be changed at all times using a special wrench (included in the delivery of the changing module). The fixation in the cone ensures a positive-locking, clearance-free connection of the components.
Thanks to the stop system, it is possible to set angles of spread at approx. 20°, 40°, 60°, 80° and 100° by means of a wing catch. The stop system is designed in such a way that the specified loads of the tripods are also guaranteed at a maximum inclination of the tripod legs.

Je cherche un pied bois, hauteur maxi 1,70 m, poids supporté 8/ 10 kg maxi, avec une colonne centrale pour un usage de photographie panoramique.. Quel est votre modèle le mieux adapté ? Merci. Mille excuses je ne parle ni allemand ni anglais, comme beaucoup de français !!!"
"I have been the owner of a tripod with this centre column module for about 8 years now, and this is by far the most easy tripod to set up I ever have seen (and I give photography classes to adults so I have seen many). The levelling ball makes levelling out the base very easy and fast, and a mounted tripod head will allow for the further movements you eventually need to do. The one inconvenience with the two segment legs is that the tripod still is a bit long when folded. The tripod shows no signs of wear after all these years of use out in the field. Excellent choice for me!"
