The Giottos Carbon Fiber Tripod/Monopod with Arca QR Ballhead delivers what every photographer is looking for - a solid professional tripod that folds down to a manageable size. This carbon fiber support will extend to 5.41' (1.65m), but its minimum working height is less than a foot - 10.6" (26.92cm) and it folds down to 15.6" (39.62cm) for storage and transport. Although it weighs just 2.8lbs (1.27kg), it can support up to 8.8lbs (3.99kg). The included quick-release ballhead has bubble levels and is Arca-compatible.
Plus, one leg of the tripod combined with the center column converts to a full-size monopod that extends to 5.58' (1.7m) and collapses to 28.9" (73.4cm). The 5 leg sections use a quick twist-lock design and the tripod accepts optional accessory spiked feet for use on rough terrain.
