This is the tripod I use when I am out sketching because not only is it perfect for my drawing board it is also a great little tripod for photography.
Its fully adjustable aluminium legs with rubber grip allow it to maintain a sturdy grip on the ground whilst you paint or photograph and there is an additional hook for weighing it down in strong winds.
The centre column height can be continuously adjusted (60cm-158cm) by using a simple crank then locked into place at your preferred height - great if you want to switch from standing to sitting. This combined with the smooth panning 3-way tripod head means that you can tilt your board to any angle you want to even out washes. The tripods quick release plate also means that you don’t have to mess about unscrewing the board from the tripod when it comes to packing away as the plate can be left attached to the board with the addition a camera tripod bracket.
A great piece of kit for the money and it even comes with it’s own carry case.
