The FUSION is made of high strength plastic and aluminum alloy and is precisely machined to offer the quality demanded by photo and video shooters.

Removing the camera and lens from the head is simple and fast. Simply pull the lock release lever pull the plate out. The quick release plate is non keyed, so it can be positioned any way in the head. The head on the FUSION tripod is designed to carry a capacity of up to 8 lbs. It has a spirit level and calibrations for pan and tilt to ensure perfect leveling and a single easy grip pan and tilt handle. The head has 3 way action-pan, portrait tilt and landscape tilt.
