The 3 Legged Thing X5a Tony Evolution 2 Aluminum Alloy Tripod is a stylish and compact travel tripod system, the most stable in 3LT's 29mm Ultra Pro range of aluminum alloy tripods. The system extends from a minimum height of 5.9" to a maximum height of 66.33". Folded down to 22", the X5a Tony is a versatile professional camera support system that fits in most airline carry-on bags.

One of the tripod legs unscrews to become a monopod. The center column is both removable and reversible to accommodate shooting from the lowest of low angles. Leg angles can be set at three different positions; at their widest and with the column removed, the camera plate sits only 5.9" from the ground.
