Aluminum or carbon fiber?

If you do the type of traveling where every ounce counts, the carbon fiber model is for you, weighing only 3.7 lb. Want lightweight but also economical? The aluminum model weighs 4.6 lb and will save you $160.

360-degree Panning

Accurate panoramas can be easily orchestrated using the graduated panning scale for accurate image alignment.

Two Leg Angle Positions

For an extra measure of flexibility, tripod legs can be independently locked into place at two different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level.

Foam Grip on Monopod Leg

For extreme temperatures, this foam grip will come in handy when the tripod legs heat up or freeze over.

Recessed Center-Column Hook

A spring loaded recessed hook, located in the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang additional weight from the tripod's center of gravity for increased stability.

Compact

The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180° making it less than one quarter of its extended size. 16.1" to be exact.

Separate Head and Pan Lock

Individual head tension and lock knob as well as pan lock help make the right adjustment.
