Reverse folding legs make the T-2005X Aluminum Tripod with E-20 Ball Head from Sirui an ideal lightweight, compact travel tripod. It extends to a maximum height of 64.8" and folds down to just 15.9" for easy transport. Weighing only 4.1 lb, the T-2005X supports loads up to 26.5 lb thanks to its relatively thick upper leg sections and forged aluminum construction.
The tripod's center column is reversible, and it comes with a short center column so that you can set up extremely close to the ground for ultra-low-angle shooting. With the short center column installed, you can set the legs at their widest angle and shoot from only 9" from the ground.
Forged aluminum results in stronger components than the traditional casting process that's often used for tripod chassis. Forging leads to more compacted metal and enhances the integrity of metal grains so they remain consistent and continuous. This leads to a longer product life and better performance
An anodizing surface treatment, produced by an electrolytic oxidation process to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts, is applied to increase corrosion & wear resistance and surface hardness, and to enhance color durability
