This combination allows you to quickly compensate for uneven surfaces using the tripod legs leveling base.

The Jay tripod legs feature eight-layer carbon fiber construction and each leg can detach from the leveling base to be used as a monopod or boom arm. Optional accessories allow you to turn the leveling base into a Hi-Hat to get remarkably low angle shots with the AirHed Cine.

The 5-section removable legs have a height range of 3.94 to 43.78" and are made from eight layers of carbon fiber and feature twist-lock leg locks with an improved shim system for greater strength. The Rapid-Latch Angle adjustment system allows you to quickly set the angle of each leg independently, even when wearing gloves. All three legs are detachable, allowing you to use the quick leveling system, with optional accessories, as the base for a high hat for low angle shots, or for working on a tabletop setup. Each detached leg can be used as a monopod or as a boom arm.
