Description

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.

The ballast hook allows you to hang a weight, such as a sandbag or camera bag, providing additional stability when you're operating with heavy loads, on uneven ground, or in windy conditions.
Each leg is independently adjustable, and can be locked in three different angles.

Light and better on my back for hiking

A little clumsy to get in the right position, but is capable of holding my Canon 70D with a 100-400 lens without falling over. Light and better on my back for hiking.
