Sirui T-1004XL Black Aluminium Tripod + E10 Ballhead
If you're a traveling photographer, a big problem is having a tripod when you need it! That's why SIRUI created the SIRUI T-X Series of tripods. SIRUI T-X Series tripods are our most compact, full-size tripods and were specifically designed with the traveler in mind.For easy storage and transport, SIRUI T-X tripods can fold as small as 35cm (13.8in.) - about the size of a 2L water bottle - and weigh as little as 0.9kg (2 lb.)!! But don't let their compact size fool you! They can handle heavy loads! You can easily fit a SIRUI T-X tripod into a backpack, camera bag or carry-on luggage! You no longer have the excuse that you didn't bring a tripod "because it's too big!!"The SIRUI TX Series tripod has a uniquely designed leg mechanism that lets you to flip the legs up 180? This allows the tripod to be folded significantly smaller than comparably sized tripods with conventional leg designs. Simply depress the leg angle lock and invert the legs 180? An added advantage is that you can keep a ball head on the tripod and it will still fit in the compact case. In the rare case that the SIRUI T-X Series is too light, simply hang a heavy bag from the spring-loaded hook underneath the tripod, for added stability.The new SIRUI T-XL models offer you increased maximum height up to 162.5 cm/64 in. tall while still folding small enough to fit in your suitcase or carry-on luggage.When you want to get low to the ground or shoot at unusual angles, you have a few options. You could remove the center column and replace it with the short center column (included). By adjusting the legs to any of the 3 leg angle positions, you can get as close as 125mm (4.9in.) to the ground! You can also invert the center column and shoot from underneath the tripod!
