Customer Q&A

1 - 5 of 12
1 2
  • Q1: I have the Zhumell 20x80 Astronomical binoculars and was wondering if this was one of the better tripods for stargazing?

    A: This tripod would be a fantastic choice.  It is heavy duty, and has a padded leg for viewing.

  • Q2: I recently purchased a Fuji Finepix E-550 digital camera. I would like to know if the Zhumell Professional Tripod and my camera will mount together?

    A: As long as your camera (female 1/4" 20 thread)is designed to fit on a standard photographic tripod, it will not be a problem at all.

  • Q3: The features for this tripod refer to camera mounting. Is it strong enough and heavy enough to carry my Zhumell 20-60X80 spotting scope?

    A: The Zhumell Professional Tripod will work just fine with the Zhumell 20-60x80mm spotting scope. It's a good combination.

  • Q4: The Zhumell Professional Tripod says only "50-60 in. Extended Height." Is that the only range? If not, what is the minimum height it can be used? Also, does the head just swivel, or also tilt?

    A: Minimum working height is 25 inches. The head tilts as well as pans.

  • Q5: What is the maximum distance the feet can be spread apart. I would like to use the tripod for laser alignment and need to span a hole that has a 32 \ diameter. Keeping the working height as low as possible with the feet spread to this distance would be id"

    A: Leg span of the Zhumell Professional Tripod is 37 inches, so it will span a 32-inch hole with plenty of room to spare.

  • Q6: Will the Zhumell 20 by 80 binoculars mount directly to the Zhumell tripod or is an adapter required?

    A: The Zhumell 20x80 Astronomical binoculars have a built in tripod adapter, and will mount directly to this tripod.
