          It's short

                It's short - what else does it need to be? Unlike another reviewer, the weight hook from the long column works/fits fine on mine.

                It is aluminum, not carbon fiber, but I don't see that as an issue. Since it's short the weight difference must be minimal.

                Why this isn't standard and the long column an option I don't know, hence only 4 stars.

                  Comments about Induro ELA-3 Short Center Column:

                  allows for low angle shooting with the stability of a tripod, as opposed to trying to handhold a long lens while lying on the ground.
                  for those who are considering this option, the aluminum version fits on the carbon fiber tripod (CT314), so you don't need to spend extra for the carbon fiber version, unless you really see and advantage in miniscule weight savings!!

                    Comments about Induro ELA-3 Short Center Column:

                    This shorter column offers a lot over the stock column. It allows you to hold the tripod, fully collapsed, by the grips, and it allows the tripod to be as low as it can get with the legs spread. Seeing as how this tripod is already about 6 ft high, I don't see the point of the stock column. Take it away and give us a more stable tripod. The only thing I don't like about this column, besides the fact I had to buy it separately, is how it still allows you to raise and lower the head by about an inch. Kind of odd. (The hook from the stock column fits perfectly on this, despite this being of bogen design).

                      It works - allows lowering of tripod to about 5 or 6 inches off ground.

                      It does not receive the bolt with retractable hanger that is present on the original column - the bolt just can't thread correctly in this short column - maybe only mine was defective in this regard.
