Product Highlights
  • Extends to 44"

  • Aluminum Ball Head

  • Folds Down to Just 15"
  • Supports Loads Up to 3 lb
  • Extremely Portable & Lightweight at 8 oz

The Connex Quick Connect Lightweight 4-Section Aluminum Tripod from Vista by Davis & Sanford is an ultra-portable camera support that snaps together quickly and folds down to a little 15" package. The design of its aluminum legs will be familiar to any camper: release the two locking straps, and the leg sections unfurl and quickly snap together like modern tent poles.

Such a design fosters an extremely speedy setup, which is crucial for capturing those blink-and-you'll-miss-them moments that are half the reason we make trips in the first place. Travelers will love not only the easy, lightning-fast setup of the Connex, but also its light weight – at only 8 oz, you'll barely noticed it's strapped to the outside of your backpack.

The 44" tall tripod offers a few mounting options. At the top of the ball head is a 1/4"-20 screw for attaching just about any point & shoot, DSLR, or video camera. (The Connex supports loads up to 3 lb.) The single-lever aluminum ball head also features a 90° tilt mode for switching from landscape to portrait orientation. In addition, the Connex comes with an adjustable camera phone adapter that cradles your phone and allows you to mount the resulting assembly to the head's standard screw.

                Bought this to use as a light stand (speedlight) when I travel. Very light and cheaper than the competition.

                  Comments about Vista by Davis & Sanford Connex Quick Connect Lightweight 4-Section Aluminum Tripod:

                  PRO: The tripod is quick to unfold and fold. To unfold, simply undo the two cable locks, let the rods dangle for a few seconds and the 3 sections in each leg will straighten (the bottom sections don't always straighten automatically, so you may need to push them in -- not a big deal).To fold, pull the last sections first, then the next section, and finally tie them back with the cables. CON: Setup can be cumbersome and slow depending on your camera.I used a DSLR with 50mm prime lens. When setting up, I had to constantly readjust the head. For instance, when you adjust the head and it's leveled, you need to tighten the clamp to the max to prevent it from sliding. The problem is while you were leveling the head and tightening it, although the tripod's legs are on the floor, you inevitably lifted the camera and ball head ever so so slightly, thereby reducing the weight on the tripod. When the head is tightened and you let go, the top weight of the tripod settles and you'll notice the head is no longer leveled. It'll take a few tries (un-tightening the head, leveling it, tightening it back) to finally get it just right.OVERALL: Although the tripod is slow to set up, it's convenient to have when you're traveling.

                    When folded the tripod fits in my backpack. It is very easy to set up and, for it's size and contruction, it is very sturdy. If there is a negative it would be the legs are not height adjustable.
