The Explorer EX-ACPRO Ascent Professional Carbon Fibre tripod with EX-XL Epic Explorer Extra Large Ball Head is a full height heavy duty tripod. The design and build are one up from many tripods on the market with a high-quality finish that gives this model a premium feel.
This tripod has been designed for the high-end amateur and professional user who place additional demands on their kit. For instance, there is no centre column, so no micro height adjustment, but this means that you’re always going to have maximum stability whatever the leg length. Just as a note, an optional centre column unit can be purchased separately if you really feel the need.
The head is extra-large, so that this tripod will offer maximum support whatever size of the camera, from compact Sony Mirrorless to Phase One. There’s also nothing fiddly about the design; everything is easy to access, tighten and adjust; it’s all about getting the level base you need to take the picture with minimum fuss.
The Explorer EX-ACPRO Ascent Professional Carbon Fibre tripod with EX-XL Epic Explorer Extra Large Ball Head is expensive. Still, it’s aimed at those who are more than likely making a living or at least part of it from photography and need reliable kit that won’t let them down.
