This travel tripod also allows you to shoot low angles or simple macro shots by either reversing the 2-section column or removing the ball head to attach the Low-Angle Adapter (LAA), which is included. This feature is enhanced using the three easy-set leg angles (21°, 50° and 80°) that also allow you to set up the tripod for maximum stability on any terrain. When you don’t need a tripod, you can remove the leg in seconds and attach it to the central column to create a monopod, vlogging stick, or selfie stick.
The rapid-set twist leg locks allow the tripod to be deployed in seconds, minimizing the risk that you miss a fleeting shot. In addition, these leg locks have been designed to be easy to dismantle, clean, and reassemble, allowing you to set up the tripod at the beach or in dirty conditions with the confidence that you can clean them with ease when you get home. The tripod also comes with a choice of rubber or spiked feet, allowing you to choose the best setup for the conditions. Windy? No problem. Simply mount a camera bag or additional weight to the retractable hook located at the base of the center column.
The T-50 ball head allows you to use any Arca-Swiss-compatible quick-release plate (QS-64 included). The T-45 ball head has an ergonomic locking knob that makes it easy to lock the head, even in cold and wet conditions where gloves are needed. To ensure that you’re not unscrewing the head by mistake as you set your shot, the head is secured to the central column with set screws that allow you to pan with confidence.
If you want to get the most from your smartphone camera, this travel tripod kit includes a smartphone connector for any smartphone up to 3.4 inches wide. To maximize stability (or to allow you to use the monopod as a selfie stick), there is also a Bluetooth remote shutter trigger -- so you don’t need to touch the phone as you take the photo.
