The Traverse TR-553-228 Compact Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head from Davis & Sanford combines a lightweight (2.6 lb) tripod with a ball head that can hold 10 lb, and reach a maximum height of 53". The tripod's legs can be inverted 180° so that the ball head is concealed within the legs, making the folded height only 12" long.
The Arca-type compatible ball head has a locking knob to control the ball movement and a separate locking knob for the panning movement. It sits atop 5-section aluminum legs which have twist locks, allowing for quick adjustment to their height. The center column's height is also adjusted by twist locks, and it has a ballast hook on the bottom of the column for extra stability. A padded carrying case is included to protect your tripod during transport.
Very happy with this tripod. Currently being used on two month trip through India and Sri Lanka. Weight is ideal. Thoughtful features. E.g. Has a built in hook to allow the tripod to be weighted down however haven't needed it (for ref, I'm using Canon 5D mk3 so heavier rig / top heavy setup). Other reviews said a little unsteady, I tend to agree however hasn't been a problem so far.
Good inexpensive tripod, good value and very small size
Pretty solid tripod
