Small but sturdy: Velbon UT-3AR travel tripod released

A new exciting tripod has been added to the Velbon range, in the shape of the UT-3AR Travel Tripod, which comes complete with an Arca Swiss compatible ball and socket head. 

Weighing in at a mere 787g, the newcomer is able to support an impressive payload of 3kg of DSLR or CSC camera equipment. This should make the model appeal to advanced amateur and enthusiast photographers looking to take next-level images, but without the penalty of excessive weight.
