Hama UK Unveils New Omega Carbon II, III Tripods

Hama Omega Carbon III Tripod

There are two new carbon-fiber tripods from Hama UK: the Omega Carbon II and III which take advantage of the material’s strength, stability and light weight.

The height of Omega Carbon III adjusts from 71cm to an imposing 2 meters and 2cm, making the tripod ideal for taking high-angle photos. Including the versatile 3D precision ballhead, the tripod weighs just under 3kgs; not much weight to tote around. The completely removable central column helps with this, too. It can become a fully adjustable monopod, with a height of 54 to 158 centimeters or, inserted upside-down into the tripod, it can be used for macro photography.

Its little brother, the Omega Carbon II, extends from 68 to 174 centimeters and weighs just 2.5 kilograms, including the tripod head. A crafty detail: the hook on the bottom of the extendable central column also functions as a holder for items such as the camera case, which means that they can be used to provide greater weight for improved stability.
