Oben Magic – CTT-1000

I just received the new Oben CTT-1000 Carbon Fiber Tabletop Tripod and I love it! This will sound odd (but I am odd), but it’s the cutest photographic tool I’ve ever seen! Besides that, it is just incredibly well thought out, really. Here are the specs:

Load Capacity: 11 lb
Maximum Height: 15.5″
Minimum Height: 4.2″
Folded Length: 10.4″
Leg Sections: 3
Weight: 0.98 lb
3-Section Extender Adds 12″ in Height
Arca-Type Compatible Ball Head
Independent Pan and Ball lock
Includes Quick Release Plate

This list leaves out a WHOLE bunch of great features. The CTT-1000 legs have multi-stages with the last one permitting you to go completely flat. What you see here is the tripod fully erected (but legs not extended) and in this position, it can easily hold solidly the Z7 / Z24-70 and up to 70-200f4. If you open up the tripod to the next notch, it holds solidly the D5 / 70-200f2.8! Next cool feature is if you take the rubber leg tips off, you have metal spikes! Next, the head that comes with the CTT-1000 is a very sweet design able to hold up to what I’ve described. What’s nice about it is that you can go vertical with the head and the locking knob as a bubble level built-in. Did you notice, it’s carbon fiber and the leg locks are aluminum! It comes with a three-section “center” column which I personally wouldn’t use on the CT-1000 but I WILL use. It attaches with the 1/4 20 and can attach to many of our video brackets to hold the monitor better than anything else I’ve found. Weighing less than a pound and able to hold up to 11lbs, This is simply a cool new tool to add to the bag.
