Sirui N-1204SK N-S Series Tripod (Carbon Fiber)
The Sirui N-1204SK N-S Series Tripod is a four-section support with carbon fiber legs that extend along with the rapid center column by unlocking each twist-lock section. The tripod can reach a maximum height of 62.2″. With three variable legs angles, independent leg spread, and the use of the included split center column, the legs can completely splay out to offer a minimum height of 5.9″. The center column is also reversible, so you can get closer to ground, which is ideal for macro or low-angle photography. To store or carry the 3.1-pound tripod, the legs fold 180° to produce a compact 18.3″ support.
The tripod is capable of supporting a camera and lens that weigh up to 26.4 pounds; the magnesium-alloy spider has an integrated bubble level to level out your horizon, and a 1/4″-20 socket to attach accessories without the need of a clamp. One of the tripod’s legs is detachable and can convert into a monopod that has a maximum height of 59.4″. Additionally, each rubber foot is removable and interchangeable with a steel spike, which helps to secure the tripod into softer terrain.
