Whether you are an ambitious hobby photographer or a professional - anyone who gladly travels with a camera, knows that a good tripod is an inevitable part of the equipment. For many, after the camera, it is even the most important part of their photography equipment. When the camera is correctly positioned and remote control is being used but at the latest for photographs at twilight or for long-term exposures there’s no way round three-legged support.

The advantages of the Rollei carbon tripods
A photo tripod made of carbon has the advantage that it:
- has a low weight
- Is extremely sturdy and stable
- has a high load-bearing capacity
- has extreme stability owing to eight carbon layers in a cross weave structure and no problem with harsh salt, sand, dust, humidity, heat and cold
- is suitable for use anywhere with steel spikes
Carbon tripods: made for use in wind and weather
Seawater, sand or snow cannot harm Rollei Rock Solid tripods because the 8 carbon layers defy the most adverse conditions and are completely insensitive to corrosion. Extreme weather conditions constitute a special attraction for many photographers. Therefore, the Rollei carbon photo tripods are also a perfect companion that will keep your camera safe and ensure that you have the ideal angle for your picture even when temperatures are below zero.
Rock Solid: cleverly thought out down to the smallest detail
Whether they have spikes, which are fastened by the flick of a wrist and ensure that your tripod has an even firmer grip, or have scales on the tripod legs for exact positioning - Rollei Rock Solid tripods are cleverly thought out down to the smallest detail: for example the central column of the Beta and Gamma 180 models, which can be adjusted not only in height but also on the side by 180°, hence the name.
At the lower end of the (Beta and Gamma) central column or of the (Alpha) tripod head plate is a hook, for example, upon which you can hang weights or your camera bag which can be easily accommodated by the carbon camera tripod. For example in very strong wind the carbon tripod and your complete equipment as well will be even more secure.
The mounting plates of the head are also provided with a 3/8-inch and a 1/4-inch connection, which can easily be changed by turning the screw. Thus the Rock Solid carbon tripods are compatible with many tripod heads.
Lightweight with enormous load-bearing capacity
The rock Solid Carbon Alpha XL has an unimaginable load-bearing capacity of 60 kilograms. The other models in the Rock Solid range can also carry an amount of weight regardless of whether they are carbon or aluminium tripods. Thus, even particularly heavy telephoto lenses are no problem. And the best: Despite this enormous strength and robustness Rollei Rock Solid tripods are amazingly light. Packed in a sturdy, handy carrying bag with their small packed size, room will certainly be found in your luggage for these carbon and aluminium tripods in any set of equipment and for any photography trip.
