ProMaster's new Epoch tripod blends vintage style with modern materials and precision craftsmanship.

The ultimate photographic experience is about much more than snapping a picture with a phone: it involves the tactile joys of using equipment designed with care and purpose, and the satisfaction that occurs when the process is equally fulfilling as the results. The Epoch is built for stability, precision, and a confident feel that will inspire you to grab your gear and get creative. Both a conversation piece and a workhorse, it is a serious tool that delivers professional results.

Simplicity and Stability: The 3-section Leg Design

The Epoch's 3 rigid leg sections are made from high-strength, thin-wall aluminum. The light silver finish legs have the appearance of an older stainless steel tripod, without tipping the scales. There are just two locks on each leg and the smallest leg section has a robust 22mm diameter. These features provide far greater stability than a 5-section tripod. Both twist locks can be opened and closed at the same time so that each leg can be fully extended in a matter of seconds.

The Epoch's leg locks are machined from aluminum with a black and silver design that pays homage to the scalloped focusing ring found on some classic camera lenses. The 3-section design of the Epoch makes it ideal for landscapes, astrophotography, time lapses, and long exposures in tough weather conditions.

The Collar and Column

Spring-loaded aluminum push buttons on the Epoch's collar allow you to independently adjust each leg to one of 3 possible positions. A ⅜”-16 connection port is found in the side of the collar for attaching accessories.

The 2-piece center column can be reversed or shortened for ground-level work. Its height is adjusted by a twist-style collar lock which matches the design of the tripod's leg locks. A metal weight hook on the column adds even more stability.

The Benefits of a Pan/Tilt Head

The Epoch's head may look old school, but it's a fully modern head with a Dovetail (arca-type) quick-release system. A pan/tilt head offers a level of precision which can only be achieved when each axis has its own controls. This allows you to isolate your camera's movement to one direction at a time while honing your composition. These features are also ideal for macro and architectural work where precision is imperative.

Transport your Epoch in Style

The Epoch's vintage aesthetic continues with its included brown canvas carrying case. This padded bag has both a handle and a shoulder strap. It uses a convenient drawstring closure and has a small, zippered accessory pouch for storing tools, a remote release, or other small accessories.

The head's top rotation features a quick-release mount for use with compatible L-brackets. Each of the head's four movements have their own scale, so you can see their movement by degree. Three bubble levels aid in setting the head up properly and in keeping horizon lines correct.

Most heads have a base rotational movement—the Epoch's head adds a top movement. This allows you to rotate the camera above any tilt you have applied to the controls below it. Consider times when the camera is tilted to a portrait orientation. Using the top rotation lets you swivel the camera in a vertical motion, which is very different from using the base rotation in a panning motion. Either movement changes a composition in a very different way.

Paired with the stable 3-section legs, this head makes the Epoch an exceptional choice for any situation where precision and stability are must-haves. Pan/tilt heads are also well-suited for spotting scopes and binoculars!
