The Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a very lightweight, compact tripod that extends to a maximum height of 56.9" and folds down to just 14.6" for easy transport. Weighing only 2.6 lb, the T-2205X supports loads up to 26.5 lb thanks to its thick upper leg sections and forged aluminum alloy chassis. The head mounting screw is reversible, with a 1/4"-20 mount on one end and 3/8"-16 on the other.

Constructed of 8x carbon fiber, the T-2205X tripod is suitable for use with just about any head and any 35mm camera, DSLR, point & shoot, or camcorder. It's an excellent travel model due to its relatively light weight and the fact that its legs fold upward to achieve a folded length of only 14.6". That's a figure that won't necessarily grow if you attach a head – the legs extend past the height of many head models that you'll mount, so the entire package stays very compact to fit comfortably in most carry-on bags and many backpacks.

The T-2205X comes with a short center column so that you can set up extremely close to the ground for ultra-low-angle shooting. With the short center column installed, you can set the legs at their wide angle (80°) and shoot from only 5.3" from the ground.

Forged aluminum results in stronger components than the traditional casting process that's often used for tripod chassis. Forging leads to more compacted metal and enhances the integrity of metal grains so they remain consistent and continuous. This leads to a longer product life and better performance
An anodizing surface treatment, produced by an electrolytic oxidation process to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts, is applied to increase corrosion & wear resistance and surface hardness, and to enhance color durability
Silicone twist locks for leg stages
Anti-leg rotation system makes setup faster
Automatic leg-angle lock mechanism for speed and convenience – independently lock legs into place at three different angles
Retractable spiked feet for stable operation on looser terrain
Short center column allows the tripod to reach extremely low positions – minimum height of 5.3"
Leg warmer on one leg facilitates handling in extreme weather conditions and helps protect it
Center column hook allows you to add a ballast for a sturdier setup in windy conditions
Well-designed padded travel bag with sturdy shoulder strap for carrying

        Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

        I purchased this tripod to mount my D810/70-200 2.8 combo. This is a solidly built product and very compact. It comes with a nice case as well as a shoulder strap. It would have been nice if I could leave my K-40x mount on it when in the case. I think the next size smaller will allow this. But, I like my set up.

        I'm about 5'7" tall. When this tripod is fully extended (not including the center section), with the K-40x and my D810, I can just peek at the LCD on the top of the camera on my tippy toes. The camera range finder is about 3" below my eye sight. This is a very comfortable setup.

            Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

            I paired a Sirui T-2205X 5-section carbon fiber tripod and Sirui SIBSRK20 K-20x ball head so that this is a joint review. The combination is excellent. The ball head does not sag when tightening after positioning. I have a Markins Q-Ball Q3 Emille with knob release on another tripod. The Sirui ball head is every bit as good as the Markins. The tripod itself is well made, works well, and has no annoying frictions when extending or contracting (in contrast to my Manfrotto MA055CXPRO4 055CXPRO4 4-section carbon fiber tripod). It is lightweight and fits into a carry-on size suitcase. If I had to get rid of all my support equipment save one item, this tripod and ball head combo is the one I would keep. My heaviest equipment is a Nikon D810 with Nikon 70-200mm f/4.0 lens, which doesn't come close to the stated weight limits of the tripod or ball head. Therefore, I have no idea what would happen if did approach rated capacity. What appears to be close competition are the various Benro travel angel tripod and ball head combinations. My advice is not to consider Benro. It was exasperation with a Benro travel angel and ball head that caused me to buy the Sirui.

              Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

              I was reluctant buying this tripod at first. I spent months and months looking around trying to find a lightweight yet sturdy tripod when hiking, to replace my Manfrotto 055CXPRO4. I was looking at Gitzo tripod also (I own 1 Gitzo tripod and 1 monopod) but decided to give Sirui a try given the price. Wow!! Very impressive -- lightweight and very portable. The tripod is very well made and look as good as Gitzo tripod. I even like the Sirui twist lock more than the Gitzo; I feel it's easier to lock. I tried taking a shot indoor and think it's stable enough. I have to try shooting outdoor but don't foresee any problem with that. I bought it with G20X ballhead and love it as well!! Thanks B&H for expedited shipping!

                  I bought this tripod to be my primary tripod, since I shoot mostly while traveling.
                  I was very impressed with its construction. Despite its reduced size, it is very solid and can easily hold my Canon 5D mkII with a pro lens.
                  It is a very light tripod and the 5-section structure allows it to be stored in a carry-on or backpack, while providing a very comfortable work height.
                  Highly recommended.

                    Great Tripod!!!
                    I've been using many tripods over last twenty years, many of them from traditional brands, recently I knew "Sirui", a new brand for me, and found some reviews with good recommendations.
                    I was looking to something small e lightweight, after some research I decided to buy Sirui T-2205X.
                    Well, same quality traditional brands like Manfrotto, Benro, Gitzo, etc.., this tripod really impressed me, well built, great stability, precise engineering and fine finished. I'm so glad with the freedom and quality of this pretty tiny carbon tripod, that fits inside my bag.
                    Sirui T-2205X is serving very well, a big deal!!!

                      I LOVE this tripod. I was getting ready to spend $-ish on a RRS Tripod and ball head but figured I'd give the Sirui a try. I'm glad I did! It may not support 70lbs like the RRS is rated for, but I really don't need that. Its rated at 28lbs, which is plenty for my camera and lenses. I paired it with the Sirui K-20X ball head.

                      In the 45 years I have been a photographer, I have tried many different brands of tripods & spent a great deal of $ doing so. Some were truly awful, many were useful, but required a lot of work-arounds to work satisfactorily. A few, a very, very few were really good, hitting most of the marks. This Sirui tripod surprised me. I expected it to be OK, mainly buying it for it's compactness when folded. When I opened the box from B&H and started looking at this tripod, I was really surprised. It is a superb tripod. I have paid twice as much and gotten other tripos that were not nearly as good. Buy it for the small travel size when folded, enjoy it for everything it does well. It is well made and finished. There are too many thoughtful touches to list, but 1 is that the carrying strap for the case doubles as a tripod carrying strap when the case isn't being used and was designed to be used in this way. 2 center columns are included. The short 1 can be used to extend the long column, or used alone for right off the ground work. I am going to sell a nearly new tripod from another maker I bought last year. It is longer when folded, and much heavier without any increase in stability. I bought the Sirui for a travel tripod, but it is so good, I plan to use it for everything but the really heavy shoot next to the car tripod. I have another brand that is about 3 times as heavy for that duty. The Sirui will be my go to pod for everything else. If it lasts as good as it looks & works, it may well be my last tripod. Nobody is paying me for this review. This is just a really awesome tripod. You can return it if you don't like it. You have nothing to lose and the best tripod you may ever buy to gain. Go for it. I give it a 100% thumbs up.

                        Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

                        I recently purchased the Sirui T-2205X carbon fiber tripod and the Sirui K-20x ballhead. The tripod comes with a carrying case and a handy strap, and with allen keys to adjust the tripod. The instructions are clear.

                        What a fabulous combination of tripod and ballhead. It helped me to become a better photographer. Everything is beautifully finished (think Swiss) and of course it is very light. The best tripod is one that you actually carry to your photo shoots, and this one is with me all the time. Setup is very quick. It easily supports my Nikon D-SLR's and long telephoto lenses. It is often better to use a slower shutter speed and a tripod like this one instead of handheld shots, pushing your ISO super high and increasing motion blur. This tripod has lots of great features, including an ultra-low setup for a dramatic perspective, foam grips on the legs and a reversible column. The beautifully finished ballhead with its buttery smooth operation lets you set the camera position quickly and micro-adjust after rotating the knob for a little more friction.
                        I already own a well-used Slick camera tripod and a Manfrotto with a video head, but the Sirui has quickly become the one I use most with my D-SLR. It is not the least expensive carbon fiber tripod on the market, but it is excellent value since it is so well made and likely to last a very long time. Once you try this tripod and ballhead out in the store, you will want one.

                          Nice design and workmanship, only half the price of the leading French brand. Very impressed after buying the K40 ball head. B&H service is first class as usual.

                              Very nicely built, quality materials, easily folds up to 15", and that's with a 496RC2 ball head on it! If you move your tripod around a lot while shooting, or you travel, or you just like to have a tripod with you in case you need it (but often don't because of weight & dimensions), this is a great buy! Very nice design, I fully recommend it.

                                Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

                                I've owned a carbon fiber Gitzo Mountaineer since my film days and it doesn't owe me anything. Since switching to full-frame-sensor digital cameras I've had less need for a tripod, and the Gitzo has spent a lot of time by itself. A recent switch to the 36 megapixel Sony A7R and heavy lenses up to 400mm renewed my need for steady support, but I've grown accustomed to fitting all my gear into a backpack or carry-on luggage I can stow overhead even on small planes. The sales folks at B&H suggested this Sirui, which folds down to under 15" including the head. I'm just back from shooting desert sunrises and sunsets a long exposures and the Sirui proved at least as steady as the larger Mountaineer and much smoother in use, especially the Sirui ball head. One of the reasons I continue to go back to B&H is that they find new products like this. Until recently, who'd heard of Sirui? This tripod is clearly the best of the new generation. The materials and build quality are unexcelled, period.

                                  Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

                                  I own six tripods (not counting tabletop models) and two monopods. Nobody needs this many ways to hold a camera but...

                                  My aluminum Gitzo 320 with several large heads is bombproof but it weighs 9.5 lbs and it is hardly compact! I have used this tripod for more than 30 years but it is simply too unwieldy to carry very far or pack for air travel. My Manfrotto 3001 legs and head are also heavy and bulky. All my other tripods (3 Slyks) are light and compact but none is really sturdy enough for my Micro4/3 System. The Sirui 2205 is absolutely ideal for carrying on a pack and it easily fits into luggage for air travel. I own a carbon fiber Sirui monopod and I have been completely happy with it so I figured I would give one of their carbon fiber tripods a try. Very glad I did.

                                  First, the 2205 is exceptionally well made - certainly worthy of head to head comparison with Gitzo. The 2205 is beautifully crafted and has been designed with a tremendous amount of thought and attention to detail. This absolutely is not a cheap copy! I considered 3 and 4 section models but, in the end, for me, size was more important than that much stability. The tripod to monopod conversion models seem too gimmicky. Plus, I already own a Sirui monopod! I have used the 2205 side by side with my Gitzo 320, which is three times as heavy, and I have no qualms about using the Sirui with anything other than my big 300 f/4.5 Zuiko. In a pinch I can, with care, even use this lens. The 2205 is unbelievably solid for its weight and size!

                                  I will continue to use my big tripods close to the car but the 2205 has become my new go-to set of sticks everywhere else. After a few thousand exposures I am convinced it can deliver sharp photos consistently and I would not hesitate to recommend this tripod to anyone shooting Micro 4/3 or any small to medium DSLR. I sometimes shoot with the bottom leg section collapsed and in this configuration it is extremely sturdy. Using a viewfinder this low would be awkward but a tilting LCD monitor makes this position quite comfortable.

                                  I bought the Sirui KX20 head for this tripod and it too is superbly crafted. I have ball heads by Gitzo and Giottos for my big tripods but the KX20 is better made and smoother than my others.
                                  The 2205 and KX20 are a very good match. I considered the KX10 but I am glad I went with the 20.

                                  Although this tripod is less expensive than a Gitzo I think it is comparable and thus a much better value. The case and tools are a nice touch. The only problem with this tripod is that it is rising in price. I suspect this is due to superb design and craftsmanship. If you can live without the big name, this tripod is very worthy of consideration, the sooner the better.

                                    I just received my tripod and the G-20X Ball Head from B&H. When I opened the package and took the tripod out and set it up I was blown away by the quality of workmanship and precision this tripod has.
                                    Extremely easy to set it up and the tripod is rock steady. I had several Gitzo tripods before but this one beats any of them I ever had. The fact itself that it easily folds down to 15" with the Head on it is very nice since it fits into any carry-on luggage.
                                    It comes with a beatifully made very high quality Balistic Nylon padded case which is nicer than any tripod case I ever had.
                                    All in all I am extremely happy with the purchase and obviously Highly Recommend it to anybody. You will not be disappointed.

                                      Sirui has made a fantastic travel tripod with this one, it is incredibly well built (sturdy), absorbs vibration nicely (even when fully extended), and is amazingly light. I've taken this with me up mountains along the east coast and on trips to the Caribbean. It is quick to open and set up, though it does not have a spirit bubble; if you shoot panoramas or stitched images, you will need a leveling plate.

                                        I recently purchased this for a Hawaii trip and was thrilled that it easily fit inside my 20" hard carryon case next to my loaded photo backpack, with room to spare. It easily handled uneven terrain, and breezy conditions with some added weight to the center hook. It is super light and comfortable to carry. I'm only 5'2" and don't need to use the long center column at all, but found the weight hook doesn't attach to the short accessory column that I keep on it. For that reason I gave it 4 stars, otherwise it earns 5 stars.

                                          Comments about Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod:

                                          Small and lightweight, yet has a high load rating.
                                          I have the Sirui 025 CF travel tripod and the Benro Travel Angel, both great travel tripods.
                                          The Benro is a bit too heavy and large to take on a European trip. The Sirui 025 is small and light but the trade-off is stability. The Sirui 2205 is right between these two and is just right to take on a European vacation.

                                            I use this product when I am hiking to a location and a light and strong tripod is a must.

                                              It is a good travel tripod, folds small and light. I found it to be very good for D700 with 24-120 F4 VR, good with 70-200 2.8 VR and marginal for 300 F4 AF-S.
