Vinten HDT-2 Dual Stage Tripod

Offering the most extensive height range available from heavy duty tripods on the market, the HDT has been totally re-designed to offer increased torsional rigidity and robustness ideal for large camera and lens combinations in any studio or OB application.

The new pinned and glued telescopic leg design provides a wide range of height adjustment whilst offering superior strength and reliability. Set up has been made even simpler with the addition of engraved leg markings for rapid, even deployment and an integral level bubble allows for fine level adjustment. The new clamping system provides progressive feel to a positive stop which indicates when the leg is locked, ensuring simple and confident clamping.

Whatever the terrain, the HDT’s three-position swivel foot ensures a stable base. Choose from an increased length spike for soft surfaces, self-leveling pad for harder surfaces or a socket to fit all Vinten skids and floor spreaders. For more uneven surfaces, the newly designed mid-level spreader ensures the HDT is a convenient and stable option. The single piece, fixed length design offers exceptional strength and robustness, whilst simple to use and remove when necessary. With an integral carry handle providing comfortable and easy re-positioning, this system is ideal for any terrain.

  • Industry Standard combined 4-bolt and Mitchell interface
  • Leg markings for easy height positioning and leveling bubble
  • Redesigned single piece mid level spreader for added strength
  • Three-position swivel foot: Spike, Pad and Socket
  • Integral carry handle for carrying comfort

Each leg has a three-position swivel foot assembly, which provides a flat foot for studio use or a spike for use on soft ground. When set to the third position, the foot and spike are turned inwards for transit or for installation on a dolly or floor spreader. The innovative leg clamps incorporate a self-limiting mechanism which provides a guaranteed clamping force and  prevents over-tightening. Graduations on the legs facilitate deployment. Clips on each leg retain the tripod in the closed position. A mid-level spreader, attached to each leg, is free to slide on the spreader support tube. The spreader is retained on the tube by a spring-loaded release button and locked in position by a clamp.
