With its patented leg extension technology it will have you fully extended or fully retracted in record time. There are no “leg knobs” on this tripod. You simply pull down on the legs and they extend at will. As soon as you stop pulling on them they will immediately lock into place at the desired height. To retract you simply push a button at the top of the leg and the leg will freely retract. Let go of the button and the leg locks into place again at that position. Easily adjust for uneven terrain. And with a two section center column, the Neotec can be used for prone position shooting.
