The professional Rollei Lion Rock outdoor tripods and tripod heads are now part of the basic equipment of many animal, nature, sports and astro photographers who attach particular importance to uncompromising quality, extreme weather resistance and stability. The impressive load capacity and a very low dead weight predestine the Lion Rock products for use as robust and versatile companions on extensive photo trips to exotic and difficult to access locations. The special requirements of photo professionals who work with very heavy and bulky super telephoto lenses served as a practical basis for a Lion Rock special development:
Enormous load capacity with simple operation:
The new Rollei Lion Rock Gimbal special tripod combines the almost legendary characteristics of the almost indestructible Lion Rock professional tripods with the tracking and alignment qualities of a professional high-end gimbal head. The gimbal with integrated levelling unit rests firmly on the three easily adjustable tripod legs made of pure carbon precisely wound in 11 layers. Even the heaviest camera-lens-combinations can be panned intuitively and with minimal effort butter-softly and fixed bomb-proof if required. Dynamic motif tracking at sporting events as well as flexible tracking and safe focusing of animals in motion are child’s play with the new and extremely stable Rollei Lion Rock Gimbal. The enormously fast and long focal lengths used in astrophotography also find the perfect “ground station” in the Lion Rock Gimbal.
Soft as butter and smooth 360° pans from every perspective:
The Lion Rock Gimbal Tripod weighs just 4590 g and is just as firm on sensitive parquet as it is on rugged and sharp-edged rock. You pull the rubber feet off the solid steel spikes with a single hand movement, which then claw themselves into ice and rock at a perfect 90° external angle. Several spirit levels (dragonflies) and clearly visible scales make it easy for you to align the spikes exactly. A long video handle with ergonomic padding helps to move the gimbal freely and quickly. Like all current Rollei tripods, the Rollei Lion Rock Gimbal comes with a sturdy and Arca-Swiss compatible quick-release plate which, thanks to an integrated safety mechanism, prevents your valuable and heavy photo equipment from slipping off.
