The Cullmann Magnesit 519 Tripod is an intelligently-designed and compact tripod meant for light duty use with smaller SLR cameras and small lenses (such as the Four Thirds mount system).

The Magnesit 519 reaches a maximum height of just beyond 5', and thanks to the independent leg spread and 2-part center column it can operate at a very low working height of just 10.2" including the height of the 3-way pan/tilt head.  It is named 'Magnesit' because it has extensive use of magnesium in the casings and fittings.  Magnesium's a light and stable metal, helping to contribute to the 519's low weight of just under 4 pounds.

All Magnesit tripods come with an additional short center column that enables the tripods to be used for extreme macro work, when the short center column is put in "upside-down", or when the tripod is used at it's lowest position, where the normal center column would hit the ground.

Magnesium and aluminum alloy combination
Foam-padded upper leg segments ease handling in cold and carrying upon shoulder
Individual leg angle locks and detachable center column allow excellent minimum working height
Retractable spikes for use upon soft ground
Weight hook at bottom of center column for aided stability
