The Slik F153 Lightweight Aluminum Tripod with 3-Way Panhead is an extremely portable & affordable tripod with an integrated panhead that features a pan bar and independent adjustments for pan and tilt. The F153 supports loads up to 3.5 lb, so you'll be able to mount your DSLR, point & shoot, or compact camcorder to the 1/4"-20 stud of the included quick-release plate.

The tripod reaches a maximum height of 51.8" with its center column fully extended. The geared, rack & pinion-style center column allows for fine adjustments to the tripod's height, and a center brace enhances its overall sturdiness. Despite the presence of the center brace, the F153 can operate quite low to the ground, with a minimum height of 20.5".

The aluminum F153 weighs only 2.2 lb and folds down to only 20.5" (including the panhead) for easy airline transport in a carry-on bag.
