Rollei Central Column for the Rock Solid Alpha Tripod
The Rollei Rock Solid Alpha Outdoor Tripod has set new standards for its class. Its stability and enormous load-bearing capacity make the tripod the perfect solution for challenging shoots with high-end housings, lenses and filters. In order for you to make even better use of flexibility and stability for your special projects and photographic challenges, Rollei is making available a purpose-designed accessory for the Rock Solid Alpha tripod in the form of a separately available central column. This central column has a stable hook for weights to improve stability and wind resistance and incorporates a broad seating for the tripod head of your choice
Carbon construction for flexibility and stability
Just like the Rock Solid Alpha, the central column is manufactured from carefully interwoven carbon fibres cladded in a special plastic matrix. Carbon is one of the most stable and lightest materials used in the aircraft and space industries – and has also been employed for some time in the photographic industry. The locking screw holds the central column firmly in the position you desire. Even overhead for close-ups at ground level with cameras and heavy lenses.
Perfect for photographing sporting activities and architecture
In addition to very fast tele lenses and correspondingly versatile special tripod heads, sports photographers also of course require a tripod that can carry heavy equipment and is not disturbed by impact. The central column enhances the Solid Rock Alpha Tripod’s vertical range of use and also strengthens the complex housing, lens and filter combinations used by discerning landscape and filter photographers. Using the optional central column, you can rapidly change the height of the tripod and do not need to adjust all three legs. This helps you to react quickly to changes in the environment.
