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.

The X5a Tony's legs are composed of 3LT's Stealth Alloy for superb strength – the tripod system weighs just 3.67 lb and supports up to 26.45 lb, to accommodate any DSLR with most lenses.

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.

Stealth Alloy legs and columns for smoother operation, and more lateral and torsional strength.
Re-engineered leg mechanisms, for greater stability, as well as smoother and easier use.
Evo 2 Friction Locks with safety double break-point.
Bronze anodizing and triple machined aluminum alloy parts for a smoother finish.
One leg transforms into a monopod.
Includes hook for hanging a counterweight (not included) from the center column, for extra stability in windy conditions
