“The VERSA PRO 992 All In One has a uniquely designed Multi-Angle Central Column offering flexibility that enables more angle possibilities than ever before to get sharp stable shots from any angle including straight down!”

Innovative Multi-Angle Central Column easily adjusts from vertical to any horizontal position 0 to 180 degree angles without removing it from the tripod. You get the ability to easily shoot 100% rock steady shots at any downward angle, essential for product, eBay, Amazon, website and catalogue photos, baby photos, copy and macro photography which is next to impossible with hand held shooting and most other tripods.  


The Quick Action leg locks with 3 way locking adjustable leg angles can be used to splay the legs out to lower the tripod and camera to as low as ground level or create a more stable base.  Legs adjust independently for positioning on uneven terrain.  Plus you get the high maximum height of 66 inches which reaches eye level of the average adult.

With its max capacity of 13 lbs. it also works great for larger DSLRs, video cameras, or when you need extra handling capacity for additional camera mounted accessories. Aluminum alloy construction provides strength without excess weight.

With all the quality and features of premium single function tripods the VERSA PRO 992 makes a wonderful tripod not only for macro photography and products but equally great for people, portrait photography and video interviews!

“When you add up all the features of the Versa Pro’s unique design, it’s like you’re getting 3 tripods in one for less than the price of a similar quality single function camera store tripod!”
