The Photo Clam PT224 Pro Gold 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a sturdy, lightweight professional tripod that supports loads up to 33.1 lb. Constructed of lightweight carbon fiber, the tripod weighs only 2.9 lb, making it suitable to pack along for hikes, trips, and other photographic expeditions. At only 18.9" folded length with a head attached (head not included), the PT224 will fit into any carry-on bag and many backpacks.
The 4-section legs fold upward 180° to achieve such a tight package; the feet extend past the tripod's collar to line up with the top of a head, if one is attached.
Many other features make the PT224 a suitable on-the-go tripod for outdoor photography. A leg warmer facilitates a firm grip as you grab the tripod to re-position it. Foot spikes enable you to "dig deep" into loose terrain. The legs can be set independently at different angles to accommodate uneven terrain. A Ground Level Set position (with the legs a mere 5° from the ground) allows you to position your camera extremely close to the ground (less than 3") if you remove the rapid center column. Just affix the collar directly to the top casting, with the included plate underneath.
