From GentecInternational

New Velbon CUBE Ultra-Compact Tripod Sets up in Seconds and is the Perfect Travel Companion for Compact Digital Cameras

TORONTO, ON., March 7, 2011 – Gentec International is pleased to introduce the new Velbon CUBE, an ultra-compact, lightweight, folding tripod that is ideal for travel. Weighing only 390 grams — nearly half the weight of many compact tripods — and folding down to just 24 centimetres, the CUBE is easy to take with you wherever you go.

Perfect for compact digital cameras, the new CUBE features a revolutionary design that allows ultra-fast and easy setup in as little as 5 seconds, so there’s no worry about ever missing a shot. The versatile CUBE can be used as a table-top tripod with the legs retracted, or quickly extend the legs for full-size use (the CUBE extends to 94 centimetres). The unique panhead features an easy squeeze control that lets you make fast, precise camera adjustments; a convenient push button release lets you quickly switch to vertical format photography.

The Velbon CUBE has a suggested retail price of CAD $69.99 and includes a convenient carrying case.
