The On-it 28mm (the 28mm refers to the width of the thick­est leg sec­tion) is a rel­a­tively straight­for­ward four-sec­tion tri­pod sup­plied with a vari­able-fric­tion ball head. The head move­ment is not par­tic­u­larly smooth, but there is a sep­a­rate pan axis, which is use­ful. SRB says the head uses an ex­clu­sive Bal­ance Plate de­sign, but Arca-Swiss plates seem to fit too. The max­i­mum height of 1.7 me­tres is good for a tri­pod in this price bracket, and the spe­cially-de­signed Short Cen­tre Col­umn en­ables you to po­si­tion your cam­era very low to the ground. The whole thing folds down to just 48cm to fit into a sup­plied carry case. There’s no an­gled boom mech­a­nism but there is a de­tach­able mono­pod. Over­all, the On-It 28mm lacks fi­nesse but it’s ter­rific value.
