The Fotomate VT-680-222R is an excellent, professional standard tripod for video cameras & DSLR’s, as well as for spotting scopes, small telescopes and most large observation binoculars.

Features a generous maximum payload capacity of 8kg and an impressive maximum height of 197cm.

This tripod does not feature a geared centre column so the tripod offers greater rigidity and stability, and lends itself to carrying heavier equipment.

The superb included extra heavy-duty 2-Way tripod head, which is the same as supplied with the Fotomate VT-2900 model, is extremely robust and well-engineered.

Operation is extremely smooth and well damped, and can be panned 360° with a wide range of tilt adjustment. Supplied with nylon carrying case.

I have owned a 25x100 observation binocular for over ten years but used very little. When I purchased them I also purchased the popular Horizon tripod as recommended by the supplier but it was woefully unsuitable for the task being unsteady and the plastic QR plate continuously flexing under the weight of the optics.
Enter the VT680!!!
The difference is night and day. I'm 6'2" with a disabling spinal injury but this tripod is so comfortable to use. Most importantly it is rock steady with zero slop in the head. Previously I had to suffer wobbly images but this tripod has next to no vibration issues and handles my large bino with ease.all the way up to the Zenith.
My only regret is that I hadn't discovered the VT680 earlier.

Advantages: super smooth head, great height range, very sturdy construction.

Disadvantages: None so far.
