Product Highlights

  • Load Capacity: 39.6 lb
  • 180° Invertible Legs

The M-3004X Aluminum Tripod from Sirui is a compact tripod that extends to 69.7", and folds up to only 20.1" thanks to its 180° invertible legs. It weighs 4.8 lb and can hold a maximum load of 39.6 lb.

The M-3004X features a split center column that is easily converted into a short center column by unscrewing the hanging hook and removing the bottom of the column. This allows the tripod to reach its minimum height of only 6.1". The tripod also features a detachable leg that transforms into a monopod when you unscrew it from the chassis and attach the mounting plate. You can increase the height of the monopod by attaching the longer section of the split center column. The tripod comes with a padded carrying case, a reversible mounting screw, and two hex keys for tightening the legs.

The legs fold up against the tripod rather than down like most conventional tripod legs, keeping the tripod head within the legs and thereby saving space.
The center column is reversible for low angle shots.
Twist locks allow quick adjustment of the tripod's height.
The tripod legs can lock in three different positions for shooting on uneven terrain.
Stainless steel spikes emerge from the rubber feet for extra stability in grass, gravel, and other loose terrain.
A foam grip on each of the legs adds comfort in cold weather conditions and helps protect your gear by facilitating a sure grip.
A center column hook allows you to add a ballast for a sturdier setup in windy conditions.

    Sirui M-3004x Tripod

    By John F.

    Comments about Sirui M-3004X Aluminum Tripod:

    I recently purchased this tripod to mate with the Sirui K-40x ball head. What a combination! Over the last 30 plus years I've used a number of different brands of tripods/ball heads and as far I'm concerned nothing comes close to the build quality, stability and value for the money.Using this set-up with my Nikon D800 and the 200-400mm f4 telephoto lens is nothing but rock solid.In my opinion, anyone looking to upgrade their tripod/ball head should consider using this tripod (and ball head) as their baseline to compare with other competitors equipment.I'm pleased I did.

      Comments about Sirui M-3004X Aluminum Tripod:

      I have used a lot of tri-pods through the years and this one is awesome! It is not heavy at all even with a gimbal head attached.

      First, it is very well built. Second, it also can converted to a mono pod. Third, built in spikes. Forth, it come with a strap,a bag, mono pod hardware and a great warranty!

      If you are looking for a heavy duty,light weight tri-pod/mono pod.... This is it!!

      I like the tripod. When I first got it though one if the legs came out completely. I am swapping it for another one and hopefully it will be ok.

        Comments about Sirui M-3004X Aluminum Tripod:

        I'm a tripod junkie with over 40 years using and selling photo equipment. Over the years, I had 'em all, and this is one of the best values ever. It extends to eyelevel (I'm 6') with out extending the center column. The centter column can be easily split for low level use without removing from the tripod. Compaired to the Gitzo GT3541 ($) it handles the same load, colapses the the same length but with a head attached, gets down as low, and weighs only a 1/2 pound more. Add the built in spike feet, a nice carry bag, the the removable leg that converts to a nice monopod, it's hard to beat for $ delivered. Build quility is robust, adjustments work smoothly, and the finish looks great. I can find nothing to "nit pick" about this tripod, and give it a 100% recommendation.
