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 67.3", but its minimum working height is less than a foot - 11.2" and it folds down to 16.3" for storage and transport. Although it weighs just 3.7lbs, it can support up to 13lbs. 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 69.2" and collapses to 28.9". The 5 leg sections use a quick twist-lock design and the tripod has spiked metal feet for use on rough terrain.
