        The best fit for your travel camera kit. I take this along on day hikes and other travels. At less than three pounds and less than a foot folded it is a great travel tripod. It is well built and is a secure platform for small and medium size cameras or other optics. The center column can be reomoved and the head can be installed on the leg spider for very steady shots. The twist lock leg sections can be deployed and locked quickly. The ballhead is well made. Overall this is a great light and sturdy tripod.

            Fits perfectly in my backpack. Was unsure about the twist-lock legs as I'm used to lever-locks, but the operation is very smooth and easy to set up. Very happy with it so far.

                Seems to be all that I expected from ads & reviews. Expect I will use it a lot for travel and photo hikes to replace my large heavyweights!
                Impeccable service from B&H as usual!

                    A photog friend of mine had recently purchased one of these babies and I loved the sturdiness yet light weightiness (is that a word??? LOL) of the rig. But what I didn't expect was the ease of setup even though it had the type of telescoping tighteners it does. Still very quick and easy. Plus - didn't realize the center piece raised up a bit. For someone like me who's 6'01" tall, this is a God send. All the way around, a great product - especially for travel or lengthy days where you have to carry a tripod with you.

                      Good tripod. Made of good material, easy to use, versatile, and most importantly it is lightweight and portable. I bought this to take on vacation. I have not used it yet but it seems pretty good. With the camera on and at full extension, there was very slight shake but not enough to make the image blurry. This is also given that I did no use a remote and just the shutter button. When the center section is removed, the tripod becomes much much more sturdy. Anyway, I expected all of this already since I was informed at the store when I purchased it.
                      Overall a great product for a casual photographer. It is lightweight and portable and that was the most important for me.

                          Very good little tripod. Very compact and lightweight. Useful for travel and small lenses. Useful also for indoor photography. Not for use with long, heavy lenses. I would not use it on rugged terrain. Very pretty blue colour!

                            useful for carrying in backpack (or even, large purse if needed). Very compact yet can be expanded to easy eye-high for 5'3'' person. Has flexible options; ballhead operates easily. Like hook below center post to anchor stabilization weight if needed. Not a substitute for heavy duty tripod, but perfect when not possible to lug bulky, heavy gear.

                              I was looking for a lightweight but sturdy and high quality tripod for my u43 gear. I came into the store planning to buy the MeFoto RoadTrip, but in the flesh it was too big and heavy for my needs. The really helpful sales guy in the store pointed me to the Sirui and it's just what I wanted - small and light but very well made and plenty strong enough for my needs. It looks great in red too.

                              About the only minor gripe is that the camera plate needs either a coin or Allen key to tighten it - a flip-out twist handle would be more convenient. Aside from that, I've no complaints about the tripod and once again B&H gave me great service.

                                This tripod is the perfect size and weight for convenient travel use. When I require a tripod, the T-005X has adequate strength to hold my Fuji X-e2 steady with the 18-55mm zoom attached. Very good value for the money.

                                I got this for a large SLR and night photography. It doesn't come with a quick release on the head, which is unfortunate. For its size and relatively light weight, it held up a D7000 decently. It shakes easily, so a remote was used. Photos turned out fine. I returned it to get something a little bit more substantial and with a quick release, but other than those gripes, for the price... this is great. Especially for a smaller camera.

                                  Bought it for travel. I currently use a Manfrotto tripod which is way too bulky for travel. So I purchased this one to get around. Folds down small and fits in my camera bag. Best part is it still holds the weight of my camera and lens and my bag can be hung below it for added stability

                                    This tripod folds down to a tiny size and is perfect for travel. It's too lightweight to support a SLR with any but the smallest of lenses, but is perfect for advanced point and shoot cameras. I use it when I travel and don't want to lug along my SLR. I have only one major complaint. The quick release plate that came with the tripod had no rubberized grip, only a slick metal surface on which the camera slid around. I applied my own material, but should not have had to do that.

                                      It's small and light, and it's well made. It holds my full size DSLR with L glass. The head slips a touch sometimes when you're framing up, so you have to compensate for that when you're locking it down. It's great for landscapes and self portraits when your way off the beaten path. Perfect match for when every ounce and dollar count.

                                            Pros: Great build quality, lightweight, the C-10 ball head is very smooth, sturdy, holds my Sony SLT-A57 with 55-300mm lens without a problem, and it folds up small enough to strap onto the side of my Case Logic SLRC-206 nicely.Cons: None so far! Except that I would have liked it best in Metallic Orange!

                                              It weighs more than 2 lbs. with the ball head but folds compactly, making it a good travel tripod for the money. It's tall enough for the average person and stable enough for the average DSLR and lens.

                                              For me, this replaced a 12-year old Bogen/Manfrotto tripod with a micro-fluid head, which weighed 15lbs and went with me only under the express conditions that I KNEW I would use it. It was more for video anyway and I merely used it for photography.

                                              My needs were more evanescent, plus I wanted something to be able to occasionally allow me to put myself in the photo with the self timer. This fits the bill at 2lbs and a max height of almost 5'--it'll probably go with me more often than not when I'm bringing my Panasonic GX1. It can handle very easily the weight of my camera even with the heaviest lenses.

                                              The feature I like best is that you can remove the center column. This makes it rock-steady, especially if you use the included clip with a little bag of rocks.

                                              The functioning of the legs and the ball-head is fantastically smooth, much more than I would have guessed at this price point. All in all, a great deal.
