The top section is detached without tools by simply unscrewing the knob at the bottom of the column. Good news for existing 3001PRO users is that an 190TS upgrade column is also available.
As with the previous series, the 3001PRO has a removeable center column that doubles as a horizontal lateral arm. Not only does this allow the camera to be offset from leg position, but it provides the simplest way possible to shoot from directly overhead.
In addition, the new 3001PRO also comes with leg warmers on two legs which helps keep hands protected in cold weather and protects the body when carrying the tripod on shoulders. A new strap, the 458HL, (available as an optional accessory) has also been introduced to better carry the tripod. It simply snaps to the center column.
