Cullmann Rondo 460M RW20 Tripod Features

The Cullmann Rondo features clip-lock legs, with 4 sections. In the box, you get a carry pouch, and a set of Allen keys as well as the tripod with a 3-way pan head. One of the legs has a foam grip, and above this is a chunky rubber grip, which enables you to twist it and remove the leg to create a monopod with the central column. 


 

The legs have fetching blue peg-style angle adjusters - simply press the bottom of it and left the lag to adjust. There are rubber feet which can't be adjusted - this is to be expected on a budget model. 

There's a similar chunky rubber grip on the collar, which enables you to adjust the height of the central column and secure it. To remove it, you can unscrew the hook at the bottom and then lift it out. There's a rubber ring on the base of the head which acts as a shock absorber. 

 


 

The 3-way head features an oval knob which is used to secure or allow you to adjust the horizontal axis. There's another oval knob on the base plate holder, which allows you to tip it onto its side - ideal for portrait shooting. Then there's a large gripped handle which lets you adjust the angle at which you're shooting. There's a spirit level on top of the base plate mount and on the side of it, too. 

At maximum height, the tripod stands at 157.5cm. It can hold a maximum load of 4kg. The minimum height you can shoot at is 41cm and when folded, the tripod measures 43.5cm in length. It weighs 1.41kg. It's mainly suitable for small DSLRs, mirrorless and compact cameras. 

 

The Cullmann Rondo 460M RW20 features a removable monopod leg, 3-way pan head and a maximum height of 157.5cm.
