The Virtual Reality Aluminum Base from Manfrotto is a compact, lightweight, and portable support that has a load capacity of 8.8 lb and it is compatible with VR extension booms and supports VR cameras. With two variable leg angles of 23° and 51°, you can spread the legs and stabilize a VR camera on uneven terrain, and the support’s rubber feet prevent the 1-section legs from sliding or slipping on smooth surfaces. In addition, the base has a maximum height of 16.1″ and a minimum height of 8.3″, so your VR camera can get closer to the ground. The tripod weighs 1.3 lb and afterwards, when the aluminum base is not in use, the support folds down to 11.8″ for storage and transport.
The MH490-BH 490 Center Ball Head from Manfrotto is a 3.5″ tall, aluminum support with a load capacity of 8.8 lb. The head has a single lever lock, which controls the ball and pan movements at the same time. The 7.1 oz head has a cut notch on the side that allows you to position the camera at a 90° angle, and take your camera on and off quickly with its RC2 quick release system.
Together these two pieces make for an excellent and affordable desktop tripod for mounting small cameras for video conferencing.
