Giottos' VGR8255-S2N Carbon Fiber Tripod/Monopod with Arca QR Ballhead delivers what every photographer is looking for--a solid professional tripod that folds down to a manageable size. This carbon fiber support will extend to 5.41' (1.65 m), but its minimum working height is less than a foot--10.6" (26.92 cm), and it folds down to 15.6" (39.62 cm) for storage and transport. Although it weighs just 2.8 lbs (1.27 kg), it can support up to 8.8 lbs (3.99 kg). The included quick-release ballhead has bubble levels and is Arca-compatible.

Plus, one leg of the tripod combined with the center column converts to a full-size monopod that extends to 5.58' (1.7 m) and collapses to 28.9" (73.4 cm). The 5 leg sections use a quick twist-lock design, and the tripod accepts optional accessory spiked feet for use on rough terrain.
