Most likely you have found yourself caught in a bind trying to figure out how much you should be paying for a tripod and you have come across so many brands and styles and types and you just want to know the dog on price! Ok, we got you! We are going to go over the price and then a little bit about why the price.
The Leofoto LX Urban series tripods cost between $279.00 and $479.00. This price includes delivery and warranty.
Let’s jump into a little bit of the why on the cost.
The Leofoto Urban LX series is a lighter weight tripod designed for traveling. They are light, they are compact, and they are pretty tough! But the coolest feature we see is that the legs fold right back on themselves to protect that ball head and center column but also shrink up the tripod so it can fit in a fairly small bag or area. As well, with the legs that can fold over 180 degrees you can use the tripod for macro photography as it allows you to hang your camera upside down to get really close to your subjects.
The ball head that comes standard with the Leofoto Urban Lx series comes standard with a friction knob to limit or increase ease of movement of the ball head.
The legs are made from the standard Leofoto 10 layer carbon fiber. On one leg of every Urban Lx tripod there is a rubber grip to make the tripod easier to hold onto when the weather may not be so favorable or you are climbing over that pesky boulder that made you trip! :)
Last but not least this tripod has an interchangeable mounting stud. You can switch between ⅜” and ¼” mounting stud with just a quick rotation of the mounting platform.
