Trek-Tech T-Pod Mini Tripod w/ Ballhead & MagMount STAR Quick Release System

You Pay: $39.00
Product Highlights
  • Supports 9.0 lbs (4.1kg)

The Trek-Tech T-Pod Mini Tripod is a new-generation solution for on-the-go camera support, designed by Trek-Tech's staff of shooters in Portland, Oregon.  It is designed to hold equipment of up to 9 lbs, but be aware that any load rating is affected by the weight distribution of the load relative to the support base.  In practical terms the T-Pod's appropriate for modern SLR cameras with large telephoto zoom lenses with tripod collars, such as a 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6, 100-300mm f/4, 70-200mm f/2.8, or 150-500mm f/5-6.3 (it is not for a 300mm f/2.8 or larger).

The T-Pod's unflinchingly tough, and made to take a beating in the field.  It features Trek-Tech's MagMount STAR quick release ballhead, which has about the fastest connection/detachment imaginable and comes with a light duty quick release plate and a plate endowed with a rare earth magnet for extreme adhesion.

The T-Pod set consists of a legset, MagMount head, and extension pole.  You can adjust the height of the unit with the extension pole, or use the T-Pod without the extension pole in place for lower height requirements.  All of the T-Pod's parts collapse into a fitted case that's only 1.5" (3.8cm) thick.

Robust, stout tabletop tripod base with extension pole and quick release ballhead
Legset forms a 10.5" (26.7cm) support circle strong enough to hold big SLRs with large telephoto lenses with tripod collars
Base can be used with Magmount ballhead directly if needed (provides a fixed 3.8"/9.5cm height)
Fantastic MagConnect STAR quick release system includes lighter-duty and rare earth magnetic plates
MagMount's included safety lock allows you to leave your gear atop ballhead and carry from the T-Pod itself, instead of having to detach all components
Load Capacity 9.0 lbs (4.086kg)
(load capacities vary based upon equipment's weight distribution)
Height Adjustment 10.0-13.5" (25.4-34.2cm) 1
Please Note:

Ballhead can be mounted directly to base for fixed 3.8" (9.5cm) height

      I've used this tripod for a 3-week time lapse duration shoot with my DSLR. Its design was well thought out it is solidly constructed, and it allows a lot of control. It does require a flat surface to work on and you should always have the lens over one of the legs (instead of between two -- good practice even with full size tripods). Ultimately, it's the perfect addition to my photography arsenal and I recommend that everyone tries it out. If it's not for you, just return it.

      This product is slightly limited in its use because of it being so short. But it will come in handy for me, since I only need it occasionally for family events or for videos of animals. It is compact, easy to carry, and I do love the magnetic attachments for the cameras. I can leave one on each camera, if I need to switch between them. The ball head is sticky,and doesn't move smoothly at all. It seems to be made cheaply.

          Sturdy and versatile, this is an excellent choice for a small tripod. The quick release works well though I wish I could use the same plate as my CapturePRO Camera Clip then I would have the perfect set up for macro work.

            I love taking interesting perspective shots but have trouble getting down on the ground...(actually more trouble getting off the ground) this little tripod gives me the flexibility to shot from 3.5 inches off the ground to about 10 inches of height. Fun... Use it with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III and various lenses...17-40mm 24-105mm

                This is a great sturdy little tripod. Because of the design you can get even lower by attaching the ball head to the legs. It works great as table top tripod but I use it mostly as a shoulder support for my NEX 5N. I mostly shoot video and this is the perfect length to push against your shoulder for stability.

                  I do a lot of world traveling with my family. Carry a lot of gear but often not my tripod or mnonopod secondary to bag resrtictions on airlines etc.. Have frequently wished I had either of those with me for low light shots, being included in a picture or two. This is the best solution I have found after quite a long search. This is a SOLID unit. Holds my K7 with 120-400 among others without any difficulty whatsoever. Breaks down into a very small package which when stored in the included carry bag, fits very nicely in my back pack or shoulder bag. Only weighs around a pound which means this tripod is ALWAYS with me an available. A great purchase.

                    Usually small tripods are so cheaply made I wouldn't dare put my cameras on them. This thing is perfectly capable of holding my 5D mk3 with battery grip AND 70-200 f2.8L USMII. That's a chunk of weight!I was also concerned about the ball head but it locks down quite securely . Super small when folded!Highly recommended!

                      Works extremely well for table top or photo cube macro applications. Very stable and easy to adjust. The magnetic mount is okay, nothing exceptional. The ball mount works well.All in all a reasonable tripod for this purpose.

                          This is a very well made and versatile table top tripod. It will work with both my DSLR's and Point and Shoot cameras (comes with a camera base for both). Well made and sturdy.

                          It comes with two magnetic camera mounts which snap to a matching magnet on the tripod head. One mount has teeth to help stabilize heavier cameras like digital SLRs, and the other is smooth for P&S cameras. The P&S mount can be attached with a coin like a quarter, but the star mount for a DSLR required an Allen wrench (supplied). So, it's not a quick change device exactly, but is small enough that you can leave it on the camera most or all of the time.

                          This product is slightly limited in its use because of it being so short. But it will come in handy for me, since I only need it occasionally for family events or for videos of animals. It is compact, easy to carry, and I do love the magnetic attachments for the cameras. I can leave one on each camera, if I need to switch between them. The ball head is sticky,and doesn't move smoothly at all. It seems to be made cheaply.

                            Works great. I use mine all the time, Makes getting perfect IQ easily. Easy to travel with and keep in bag then pop it on and use it to take great pics. Have used it on tops of rails, garbage cans, park benches any place I can find a small platform. Set the camera for 2 seconds and have a great shot,

                            A great little tripod that does not cost an arm and a leg. The tripod breaks down into three parts the head, feet, and vertical tube all fits in a nice bag. The package is small enough when packed it will fit nicely into most any gear bag.
                            It is easy to adjust and is strong. This little tripod is a keeper. I will be looking at more Trek-Tech equipment in the future.

                            The MagMount works well with my Point & Shoot camera, but is a little light for holding a Nikon D90 with an 70-300 tele. Build quality is good.

                                I love this product. I use it as a table tripod for product shots. I also like to use it for taking pictures of friends and family. I was not sure if I wanted to spend (..) on a tripod but it's worth the extra money. Very sturdy, I don't have to worry about my camera falling over. Plus this tripod just looks so cool! I love the Ballhead and MagMount quick release. Great product!
