* Maximum Load of the tripods and monopods are far better than Recommended.
** Depending on situation, or shape of the object on the tripod/monopod, ideal load must be changed. Please use center column as short as possible in strong wind to obtain durability for your camera.
*** Use stone bag or hook with hanging bag etc when use light weight carbon tripod to give lower gravity, which makes your tripod steadier.

We want photographers to take outstanding photos
with our tripods ̶ VEL (very) BON Voyage !!
Velbon was established in Kobe, Japan back in 1955.
Ever since then, it has been creating photo and video tripods from
high-end professional, right down to compact travel-tripods, under
the respected and world-famous brand name of Velbon.
Vel comes from the pronunciation of the word Very in Japanese
and Bon is from the French word meaning Good in English: So
Velbon means Very Good from the original concept.
We want photographers to take outstanding photos with our tripods ‒
VEL (very) BON Voyage!!
Established in 1955, Japan.

After fixing focus in macro photography, you want to avoid
large movements when adjusting framing (which would be
made if you moved the tripod). In this case, the Macro Slider
helps you make fine adjustments. The Super Mag Slider can
be divided into 2 parts: the upper part is used to adjust
forward and backward and the lower part is for left to right.
The SPT-1 is a multi-purpose plate which will support a
camera body and a long telephoto lens at the same time. It
will reduce the vibration of the whole camera system as
well as any strain on the lens mount.
Tripods have 3 legs ‒ that s it! Most end-users consider
that there is nothing high tech about a simple camera
support. However, for decades, they have been seeking a
steady platform which is not too heavy. When we look
back in Velbon s model history, we see that the PX-701F
was one of their best professional tripods, designed
for heavy duty use. It was all aluminium, made in Japan
and weighed 3.9kgs - it was needed to support Large or
Medium-format cameras.
As time went on and cameras reduced in size, Velbon
decided that they would aim to make a tripod just one third
the weight of the PX-701F, but with similar durability and
performance. Velbon pioneered the introduction of
Magnesium alloy in the manufacturing of both the tripod
head and body. They also found the solution for combining
This plate can be used like a grip when used alone against
your chest, or it can be slid simply into a fluid head such as
the FHD-61Q, enabling you to take photos using a slow
shutter-speed, whilst following an object smoothly with
the oil-fluid head.
Recently D-SLR cameras have begun to include high definition (HD) movie modes. The above plate and fluid head will
support your dream efficiently, at a lower cost than that
normally associated with traditional video equipment.
Craftmanship
CARBON FIBRE PIPE
Now users understand how tripods are an important factor
in creating the photo image, by keeping the camera as
steady as possible. When you want to produce sharp
photographs, without any blur, using high quality camera,
lens, media and so on, your camera must be held perfectly
still on the tripod. If you are a discerning photographer,
there is no need to waste your time by trying out cheaper,
inferior tripods before you finally choose Velbon s quality
and innovation. If your tripod shakes, it is useless for
supporting your camera and this is very important point of
view when you come to choosing the right equipment.
Velbon tried to solve this problem as simply as possible and
found a solution by using Carbon Fibre to absorb vibration
from the ground and Magnesium alloy to absorb mirror
shock between the camera and tripod head.
Anti-shake systems are now very popular in camera bodies
and telephoto lenses. But you may need to switch off the
camera anti-shake when using a telephoto lens with the
same function, as they can interfere with each other if they
are both switched on together.

improved. Also the quality of paper and printers has made
remarkable progress. It means that any blur will also show
up when printed with the new technology of cameras and
printers.
The Importance of Education
Vibration is a wave which starts from the mirror inside the
camera body; it runs out to the extended body of the lens
and returns to the camera body on the tripod platform.
Meanwhile, the camera body can shake as the lens is not
supported, due to the tripod securing only the camera body.
Let s use the Super Mag Slider to explain some examples of
Velbon s unique products: The Super Mag Slider is made
from Magnesium alloy and it has 2 rails for adjusting back
and forth or from to left to right.
Fluid heads are normally used for video
camcorders, but we see a lot of bird
watching enthusiasts experimenting
with digital scoping - we call it Digi-Sco.
Digi-Sco will bring distant objects up
close and clearly. As camera resolutions have improved
dramatically, the quality of the picture has been greatly
Innovation&
Technology
Magnesium alloy with carbon-fibre leg-tubes, creating the
best combination for absorbing shutter vibration, caused
when an SLR mirror goes up and down.
This kind of philosophy is based on long-term knowledge
built-up over 50+ years, since the days of all-aluminium
tripods. Velbon s products contain a high level of craftsmanship which can not easily be copied by new brands
coming into the market. Velbon has some really unique
products to help users create better or ideal conditions for
taking pictures in any situation.

Choosing the Right Tripod Landscape Photographs
If you choose a tripod from a cheap range, you may find
that it is not tall enough. You may go sightseeing and want
to take a nice photo at night from a bridge over the river.
But if the height is not enough, the top of camera can not
see over the bridge and it would be a wasted opportunity,
having carried the tripod for a long distance.
If your tripod is tall enough, but too slow and complicated
to extend or close down, you can not keep asking your tour
colleagues to wait for ages, whilst you set up, take the
photo and fold down again. In this case you want a tripod
which can be erected quickly and easily, then after taking
the photo, it can be folded down again in a few seconds,
ready to go on to the next place.
Velbon has come up with a solution to this problem, by
creating a brand new product: the CUBE . This is a tripod
which folds flat, has square-section legs and is compact
enough to fit inside a lady s bag. However, it only takes 2
seconds to extend and be ready for use. It will hold your
camera horizontally on the top-plate and can also be rotated
90 degrees to the vertical position. After shooting your
photo, it can be collapsed and folded with one simple action.
This is the fastest and most convenient tripod to extend and
fold when you are on a package tour or similar situation.
As seen above, Velbon can offer Professional quality, versatile equipment right down to small compact travel
solutions, all combining their innovative design ideas.

Unique Versatility in Craftsmanship and
Technology is the trademark of Velbon.
Thank you.
CUBE
As mentioned above, movement of the camera body can
come from inside the camera. Anti-shake systems are
made for preventing human vibration when you push the
shutter button - this will be absorbed by the anti-shake
system, as it is designed to reduce the vibration from
outside of the camera or lens.
But when you shoot with a fast shutter speed at ISO 800
or more, the mirror shock inside the camera body is the
biggest vibration which will happen just after pushing
the shutter button. It may occur several times when
following a subject.
In this case, anti-shake systems may not get
rid of the blur as it comes from the moving
parts within the camera system after pressing
the shutter button. In this case, it is not the
human creating the vibration.

VIDEO SERIES
Fluid heads are designed primarily for film or video use,
they allow 2-way, panning and tilting functions (sideways
vertical tilt is not necessary). The main point of fluid heads
is to allow smooth movement with camcorders and after
releasing the handle, the camcorder should remain in
position without the need to lock-off too tight.

QHD-61Q
TRIPOD BODY
3-way heads have pan and tilt handles, as well as Quickrelease platforms, several of which are compatible with
Velbon s Ball & Socket heads as follows:
Ball heads QHD-61Q and 71Q have the same quick release
platform as PHD-54Q(51Q) and 64Q(61Q) respectively.
(NB: PH-285 and 275 do not have quick release platforms)
PH-285, 275, PHD-61Q, 51Q, 41Q, and 31Q are actually 4-way
heads, as these heads can also be turned vertically to the
right or left by 90 degrees. This is particularly important to
keep the flashgun above your camera lens when taking
portrait (vertical) shots.
Some 3-way heads (such as PH-157Q) have a single handle
which operates both pan and tilt functions and can be
locked and unlocked in one action.

the head.
HEADS
Ball & Socket heads (or Ball heads) have a one-stop
locking system for the pan and tilt angles. They generally
include a Quick-release platform and ensure that speedy
setup is standard with this range.
CX/DF SERIES
Velbon offers three ranges of unique and outstanding
tripods:
GEO-series
SHERPA+
Velbon has been well known with its Sherpa range for
decades. Now SHERPA PLUS is available to bridge the gap
between the GEO and Sherpa ranges. They offer larger
diameters of aluminum leg and GEO-style bodies made of
Magnesium alloy which keeps weight to a minimum, but
offers high strength.
Low-angle shooting is available by opening out the legs fully
and removing the lower part of the center column. The Sherpa
Plus series offers tripods which are ideal for keen photographers who like to use telephoto or teleconverter lenses.
05
LEG TYPES
As well as their primarily carbon fibre construction, Velbon
adds a small amount of Basalt to the raw materials when
the leg tubes are constructed. Velbon use a pulling torsion
during the manufacturing process, instead of layers which
are used by other carbon fibre manufacturers.
Pulling torsion is more effective than using layers, as all the
materials become deeply combined with epoxy resin.
Velbon adds Basalt to give more strength to the carbonfibre tubes and more resistance to the bending or crushing
forces which may be applied when supporting heavy loads.
Velbon s carbon-fibre legs are formed by a highly specialised French company which is well known as a high-tech
supplier to the demanding aircraft and car industries.
Velbon is proud to utilize their advanced French technology in its carbon-fibre leg production.
Velbon also use Magnesium alloy in their tripod body
production, as it makes the tripod extremely light-weight
and gives far more durability compared to a plastic or
aluminum body. Velbon was a pioneer in the use Magnesium alloy, which it introduced into the tripod industry in
the 1990s. Magnesium alloy is not easy to accurately mould
and it is formed using high technology, controlled by
Japanese engineers.
Velbon offer their GEO-series tripods as a top class choice
for advanced amateurs and professionals who own D-SLRs.
3 Section/4 Section

If your tripod has a sliding or lift-out centre column, Velbon
offers the optional HC-2528 Hide-clamp as a separate unit.
Simply slide out your centre column with head, then insert

bench or chair arm etc. When you visit places
such as museums or theatres, tripods may
not be allowed - in this case a hide-clamp and
center column unit or a monopod will support
your camera at slow shutter speeds.

ULTRA-series
Velbon offers a unique travel solution with this range of
compact tripods. They have 5-section legs and no locking
clips on the legs, as the legs are locked and released simply
by twisting.
All the unique functions on these legs are patented and the
larger diameter leg sections provide extra strength at the joints

with Velbon s ULTRA models.
Other Velbon tripod ranges, such as CX-series, DF, P-MAX
and C-series offer tripods with non-detachable heads these heads are constructed as part of the tripod and are
not designed to be removed.
UC-6 is an Umbrella Clamp which you can clip

COMPACT, FRIENDLY CARRYING LIKE A TOUR-PACKAGE
2-SECOND SPEEDY SETUP & SINGLE-ACTION FOLDING.
When on a sight-seeing tour, there is often not enough time to set up a tripod so you can get a
photograph of you and your friends together.
The CUBE tripod can easily be setup in just two seconds, allowing you to take your group shot and
then collapse it down again in one quick action, with plenty of time to go on to the next place.
The head on this tripod is unique: You simply squeeze the locking levers to adjust the head and
the angle of your camera, then release again to lock it in position, ready for shooting.
