Cullmann Nanomax 220 Aluminum Tripod w/ 3-Way Head - Supports 5.5 lbs (2.5kg)

You Pay: $45.32

The Cullmann Nanomax 220 Tripod is an extremely light tripod for travel with small cameras, weighing less than 2 pounds.  It is appropriate for advanced point and shoot cameras or very small SLR systems (such as an entry-level SLR with a variable-aperture 'kit' zoom lens).

The Nanomax 220 reaches a maximum height of 44.5", so most users will need either a screen on their camera which can rotate/flip or a right angle viewfinder for their SLR.  The advantage is that when collapsed the Nanomax 220 weighs just 1.8 pounds and at a hair over 16" it will even occasionally fit in a carry-on briefcase.

      I bring this along to shoot landscapes and city-lights. It's really light and compact, yet can extend decently high. I think it's a perfect balance of portability and height.

      The material is nice and the yellow words provide a striking contrast. The bubble meter isn't much use. It shows if you're shot is vertically level, but not horizontally. So if you're trying to shoot the horizon, you probably won't use the bubble meter.

      Other than that it's a great tripod, very stable and light enough to carry and walk around the whole day.

      Small and ligth

      It is perfect for travel. It is a well built litle tripod with good enough paning capabilities. Not as stable as I needed specialy with the center column extended.

      Comments about Cullmann Nanomax 220 Aluminum Tripod w/ 3-Way Head - Supports 5.5 lbs (2.5kg):

      Recently purchased this tripod for the sole purpose of holding optics while backpacking and hunting. Great little tripod for glassing sitting down or for small cameras. Super light weight, durable, and very packable. I would buy again in a heartbeat. Can't say enough good things about this little tripod.

        Comments about Cullmann Nanomax 220 Aluminum Tripod w/ 3-Way Head - Supports 5.5 lbs (2.5kg):

        This is all that I would expect from a tripod in this category. It's meant to be a lightweight, compact, relatively durable tripod for photos and it does this job very well. Great for backpacking or any other traveling where space and weight is a premium. The neoprene sleeves on the upper legs helps protect them well when collapsed and packed.

        My only complaint is with the screw that attaches the mount to the camera - the little tab to screw the mount into the camera is diffcult to grasp (and I have skinny fingers).

          It is very light and compact to carry around in a small 25l pack. It is also very well built and can easily support my D90 with a Tokina 11-16 or Tamron 17-50. I used it extensively while backpacking in Europe where weight and size is very important.

                      I bought this tripod to use with our small digital video camera for recording depositions at our law firm. I needed something that was compact enough to carry in a large lawyer's brief case for travel. This tripod is one of the most compact when folded, solidly made and sturdy. I would recommend this for anyone who needs a small sturdy travel tripod.

                      Summer time hiking to bring it along is great. It is a very light and fold to a small size - perfectly fit in backpack. I use it with point-and-shot camera on trips. Love it!!! Even says support 5.5lb camera, it maybe too flimsy for SLR Camera. May not be great use for windy situation too. However, with the price, the weight, the folded size, it is really unbeatable.
