Heavy little thing

Why not a carbon one? To travel with this added piece is not practical, my idea was to travel with less, simpler ... but this little column weighs more than the stock long one, and when installed the legs don't fold up as tightly if the ball head is attached. It will get you lower, but that's it. Sending it back.

Short column

It is exactly what I expected it would be. It fits my GlobeTrotter perfectly and even allows the weight hook to attach to the bottom. I do mostly landscape and waterfall photography so having this little piece has been something i have missed. Glad to finally have it in my arsonal.

Works well; probably should come with the Tripod.

Overall this is a solid pickup if you intend to shoot low--or even as a quick ballhead connector for the monopod leg. You have to unscrew the weight hook, unscrew the ballhead, and this goes right into the center column or onto the monopod leg. For the cost as a separate accessory? Kinda scratching my head as to why this isn't included with the tripod proper even if they jack the price up $30 to compensate. I figure the average person who buys a Globetrotter tripod would not nix the tripod if it was $30 more and came with the short column even if they didn't use it. But, that's just my opinion. There's nothing really superlative about the part short column proper, though. It does it's job and does it well. If you think you might shoot low, get it. It's useful to have and won't break the bank.

Yup.

Almost perfect

The only issue I have with this is that the cap that screws onto the bottom of the center column will stick out, it is not flat against the tripod hinge plate. If this product was a centimeter shorter it would be perfect.

Does the trick

This allows me to get very close to the ground. Easily attached, though it does require swapping the head with the normal post. Tripod will not fit into case with short post installed but will fit into case with tripod and regular post once removed. About to take it and the tripod to Africa, so will see how it performs under arduous conditions.

question

Does this short column work when you convert the globetrotter into a monopod? I am looking be able to use the monopod at a lower overall height.
Asked by: gzub
Yes, works that same as the original center post section. (Even when used as a monopod.) I switched to the smaller column and use it 100% of the time now. It is great!
