The New PRO 330SVH tripod combines our top-selling selling compact full-size 330DX legs with the travel-ready and versatile SVH-501 video head. The combination was created for on-the-go filmmakers and people who observe wildlife through an angled spotting scope. The tripod is solid with a heavy-duty feel yet only weighs 4lbs.
The combo is great for people that need a budget friendly fluid head and legs they can throw on a backpack and hike into the wilderness.
The SVH-501 is a no-frills, compact sized, video head, weighing in at 1lb. and capable of supporting 6.6lbs of gear in any position while providing smooth pan and tilt movements. To keep the size, weight and cost down we did not include drag control knobs but the head provides the right amount of resistance when moving the head so your video movements are smooth and your animal tracking is easy. The angled pan handle can be positioned for left or right hand control and rotated a full 360-degrees so the handle’s angle is in the best position for your situation.
The head includes a 70mm Arca-type quick release plate that can slide in from the front, back or mounted from the top. The locking knob is large and easy to access with the camera mounted. It also includes a release stopper to prevent the plate from sliding off the head in the event you forget to tighten down the plate. The stopper can also be rotated out of the way to make mounting and removal a bit faster. The quick release plate sports a tool-less wing-nut design that lets you attach the plate to your camera without a coin or tool. Of course, we include a coin slot for those that prefer it.
The 330DX black legs are made of aluminum and are fast and easy to set up. They can reach a maximum height of 63.4 inches with the column extended and 50 inches with the column down. It folds down 24.5 inches and includes a carrying case for easy transport. The legs include foam grips on each leg for added comfort when carrying it on your shoulder. They also make it easier to handle on hot days when your hands are sweaty as well as freezing days when your hands are cold.
