The Compact Action is the best choice for owners of entry level DSLRs with standard kit lenses who like to shoot a combination of photos and movies. The ergonomic joystick head with scroll-wheel locking mechanism is intuitive and easy-to-use, with a comfortable grip which allows you to capture smooth movies and great images with little effort



  1. The innovative circular quick release plate is perfect for effortless camera attachment by hand without any need for coins or screwdrivers. Thanks to its shape, camera orientation will never be an issue again. Simply close the lever just above the joystick handle.
  2. In addition, the Regulating Dial, together with the round quick release plate allows you to perfectly adjust every camera to the tripod thereby enhancing its stability. Last but not least, the photo-movie selector allows maximum freedom in any circumstance. Switching to the desired mode only takes a second and ensures you always obtain great photos and smooth movies. For more information please refer to the product instruction manual.
  3. The Compact Action is designed to work perfectly with entry level DSLRs with standard kit lenses but is compatible also with any device up to 1.5kg such as Compacts, Compact System and Bridges Cameras. Please consider that a lot of semi-professional and professional equipment exceeds these requirements.
  4. If you own a compact device with the tripod thread in an off-centre position please be aware that there are some limitations on how close to the side of the camera the ¼” thread can be. The minimum distance of the ¼” thread from the lateral edge of your device must be 13mm to guarantee the declared performance.
  5. If you own a Sony Nex 5R/5T you have certainly noticed that these particular models have a very small surface area around the mounting thread. For this reason, in each Compact Light box, you will find a special adaptor that will increase the surface area of these specific cameras in order to better grip the tripod and obtain maximum stability.
