Sirui's S-2205-N Carbon Fiber Tripod is a complete departure from the old days of "lugging around" a heavy metal tripod. To begin with, it only weighs 2.6 lb and yet can support up to 26.4 lb. The S-2205-N is so versatile in its adjustments that it does about anything you can think of short of bending. It has individual leg spreading capability for low angles or uneven terrain. Besides the standard center column a short center column is included which allows the tripod to squat way down. And it reverses for even lower perspectives. The icing on the cake is a removable leg that converts to a monopod. And when the shoot is over the S-2205-N won't take up much space either. It folds flat to a mere 1.6" thick.

8 Layers of Carbon Fiber for Superior Load Capacity
Sirui is one of the few manufacturers who make their own carbon fiber leg tubes. The use of 100% carbon fiber and 8 cross pattern layers makes Sirui tripods and monopods capable of supporting impressive load capacities, while providing a lightweight product. In addition to providing high strength and low weight, carbon fiber is also highly resistant to temperature changes, friction (no need for lubrication) and corrosion.
Custom Anodized Surface Treatment
All Sirui products undergo a special anodized surface treatment that makes any metal surfaces highly resistant to wear and increases durability and weather resistance. Anodizing is an environmentally safe electrochemical process. This also prepares the surface to provide better adhesion of colored finishes.
Temperature Tolerance Test
Photographers often work in extreme environments, like blazing deserts or sub-zero mountaintops. It is vital that your equipment works under these conditions. That is why all of these products are "torture-tested" under conditions that far exceed what most people will ever experience: -40 - 212°F (-40 - 100°C).
Certified Longevity Tests for Quality and Reliability
To confirm the quality and reliability of Sirui tripods (and dedication to details), an independent testing lab (SGS) subjected the leg angle lock spring mechanisms to exhaustive longevity tests. The test reports show that even after 100,000 actuations, the springs continued to perform perfectly.
Short Center Column
Allows low angle shooting for unique perspectives and macro photography.
Precision Leg Tubes
The difference in diameter of leg tubes is only 3.0mm from tube to retracted tube. Thanks to precision manufacturing, the legs open and close easily, while the small diameter difference provides added leg stability.
Half-turn Leg Locks
To lock the legs of Sirui tripods/monopods, twisting locks are utilized for maximum reliability and stability. Simply twist the rubber leg locks 1/2 turn and the legs will extend by themselves.
Unique Locking System
The Sirui S-N series tripods have a unique leg position locking system that clicks in place when the tripod is opened. This guarantees that the tripod legs will be properly positioned -providing a rugged, stable support for your equipment. Simply open the tripod in the direction of the arrows until it clicks into place. When you're done shooting, press the red unlock button and close the tripod flat.
Non-Twist Center Column/Legs
All Sirui center columns and legs have keyed, grooved channels that prevent twisting, providing additional stability and safety for your photographic equipment.
Converts to Monopod
The detachable leg lets you transform your tripod into a monopod! This reduces the amount of equipment you need to carry and makes your camera bag or backpack lighter.

      Comments about Sirui S-2205-N Carbon Fiber Tripod:

      Easily the best tripod I've ever used. Right now I use it with Nikon D800's and a variety of lenses. This is the 3rd Sirui product I've owned. The quality is first-rate and matches the very best alternatives on the market today. The light weight and flat design are musts for travel. Although I haven't used the monopod leg or the short center column, they're great features which enhance the flexibility of this device.

      I stumbled upon Sirui when researching very small tripods for use with a camcorder. About 2 years ago I purchased their smallest carbon fiber tripod for video recording (T-025 - see separate review). It was so good, I've been recommending Sirui to everyone. Since then, I purchased the S2205N as well as the footed monopod. It's impossible to beat the price/performance of Sirui products. Hard to believe this brand hasn't taken off in a big way.

        Comments about Sirui S-2205-N Carbon Fiber Tripod:

        I need a tripod for travel and this fits the bill perfectly. Adding a Sirui Ball head results in a combination that will still fit in the carry case provided. I really like that it folds flat and small to fit in a suitcase and doesn't require me to carry it as part of the camera bag on the plane.Opening and closing is quick and easy. I like the twist locks. This replaces a Manfrodo tripod with flip locks that continually pinched my hands and made me crazy. The opening mechanism is sturdy and the locking in the open position has a solid feel to it. the hook on the center post is a welcome addition.It is a bit shorter that the Manfrodo but I'll take that trade-off for the weight and size reduction and the removal of finger pinching.
