About this product
Part Number: 50400
The Fotomate VT-680-222R is an impressive professional standard tripod for video cameras and DSLRs. Also an excellent choice for spotting scopes, small telescopes and large observation binoculars.
Optimum payload is 5-6kg but can handle 8kg.
Maximum height an impressive 197cm when fully extended.
This tripod does not feature a geared centre column so offers greater rigidity and stability when carrying heavier equipment.

The tripod is of very high quality and bares the weight on my Celestron astro master 25 x 100 bins.

Very sturdy and stable tripod that gives a good height for star watching with binoculars. Very smooth action and well engineered. Release plate works well and stout carrying case.
Excellent tripod for 25x100 binoculars

Service from FLO was very fast and product is excellent.
However DHL tracking system did not show any progress for 5 days after the shipment went from Brussels to Lisbon. When it arrived two days later then estimated, the tracking system indicated it would be delivered at that day. It looks like in Portugal they are slow to update the tracking, making the system useless.
Being later is not the problem but not knowing what the status is, is frustrating and vary inconvenient.
Excellent tripod at a good price

This tripod is very well engineered and provides a smooth stable mount for my 7kg observation binoculars. I would recommend it as a versatile heavy duty mount.
