LOL, it's dirt cheap!
Velbon is a very good brand, but not as well know as others. The legs appear to be made of carbon fiber!

Great deal! I have a Velbon tripod and like it a lot.

PHD-31Q is actually the part number for the head... a pan/video head. No idea on the model number for the legs.

Thanks guys.

MaK543, I have my suspicions it's a GEO E535D:

I just wanted someone who might have owned or still does, a Velbon like it to give me some pointers. I know they're usually low-end tripods but they do professional ones too. (just learned that myself) :thumbup:

krugorg, aye I noticed that - it looks like the head has been swapped out at some point or the two items were bought separately and used together. :thumbup:

Just keep in mind if the tripod can't get to the height(both real low or real high), position or angle you want.. then it's pretty worthless.
