About Sirui T-2005X

The SIRUI T-2005X tripod has a uniquely designed leg mechanism that allows you to move the legs up 180 deg.. This allows the tripod to be folded significantly smaller than comparably sized tripods with conventional leg designs. Simply depress the leg angle lock and invert the legs 180°. An added advantage is that you can keep a ball head on the tripod and it will still fit in the compact case.

Excellent Tripod

By

from north NJ (usa)  -  Photo Enthusiast

I recently got back into phtography in a big way, upgrading my old Canon F1 and various digital point-n-shoots for the Canon 5D Mark III. Besides the kit lens, I've bought the 100mm Macro and the 70-200mm f/4. One of my goals for photography is to be a thing to do "top side" while we're on scuba vacations. So, with the camera and lens that I've got, I needed a good tripod. A friend has the Surui T1005, but since I'm 6'3" I went with the T2005. I pay the penalty in the extra weight, but this is the best tripod I think I could have found for the money. It packs small and fits perfect in the side pouch of my back pack. I didn't get a Sirui head, but my wife has one and she likes it so far. The T2005x has very smooth operation of all 3 legs and the center column. It comes with a short extender piece for really tall people :) or as a replacement of the center column for low to the ground macro pix. I like the hanging hook on the center column. When we're taking night pictures of the New York skyline, the extra stability is really helpful. The unit comes with a very well padded bag, which is probably not something I'd take traveling, but for home it keeps the tripod well protected. It also has a strap that works with the padded bag, or converts easily to work just with the tripod. All in all, I would say this is an excellent tripod and for the price you can't go wrong. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Also, huge thanks to Adorama for shipping it to me in 2 days. Always nice to see the UPS man.

Excellant

I think that one of the best features is that this tripod is small. I can actually fit this tripod in my TTP Hard Drive backpack with the a 7D with a lens attached and 3 other lens. This way it does not have to strap on to the outside of the bag. This way you don't have to worry about the tripod falling off or getting stolen.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Mark J  Can you use a Manfrotto 701dv fluid head with this tripod, and if not is there a sirui tripod that you can use a fluid head with?
WALTER K  I don't see why not. I used a Manfrotto QR ball head on mine. I had planned on using a Manfrotto Tilt-Pan head on it but changed my mind. Both fit. The tripod mount seems pretty universal, like most tripods. I love this tripod, by the way. It is small, light, sturdy, has a nice case, and sets up very fast. Solidly holds a Canon 60D with a 100 - 400 zoom.
MICHAEL G  Can I use a G-10 ball head on this unit, or is the G-20 the only compatible Sirui head?
Andrew R  This tripod should work with either the G-10 or G-20, as well as most ball heads equipped with a standard 3/8" mounting thread.
