Centre column

A ordinary tripod feature that offers extra height without making the model much larger to carry. As this is a single column it can make the camera support unbalanced with increased shaking noticeable. Try to stay away from using this where possible and always increase the leg length to gain height first before resorting to the centre column. Centre columns that have a crank handle and a geared control or those with pneumatic-dampening make it easier for you to accurately control the height adjustment
