The Sirui T-1005X 5-Section Aluminum Tripod is a supremely lightweight, compact tripod that extends to a maximum height of 51.4" and folds down to just 13.4" for easy transport. Weighing only 2.2 lbs, the T-1005X supports loads up to 22 lbs thanks to its relatively thick upper leg sections and forged aluminum construction.
The T-1005X 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 light weight and the fact that its legs fold upward to achieve a folded length of only 13.4". 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 backpacks.
The tripod's center column is reversible, and the T-1005X 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 5.1" from the ground.
