If you're doing macro or low angle shooting the Ground-Level Tripod from Really Right Stuff is an indispensable tool. The 2-section, black anodized, abrasion-resistant support weighs just 2.6 lb and folds down to just 12.4" for easy transport, while maximum height is an impressive 17.7" but minimum height is 1.9", almost on the ground. The tripod will support up to 50 lb, exceeding the requirements of anything resembling normal image making. The Ground-Level Tripod's bottom section legs are reversible with rubber tips on one side for smooth surfaces and stainless spikes on the other for uneven or loose terrain.

CNC machined 6061T Type III black-anodized aluminum and stainless steel for maximum abrasion resistance
Reversible bottom leg sections have a stainless steel point at one end for rugged outdoor use and a rubber tip on the other end for indoor/table-top use. A spring-loaded stop-button is depressed for easy removal
4-Position legs for maximum positioning flexibility. Minimum height is only 1.9"
Robust construction: the rated load capacity is 50 lb, but it can handle more weight than any practical photographic application requires
Two section legs are quick to extend/retract; only one easy-grip knob lock per leg
Rubber grips are strategically placed on the inside of each leg to provide protection and traction when legs are fully splayed
Stainless steel screws are black zinc plated to be unobtrusive

    Ground-Level Tripod is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, solid tripod but overpriced Very good product, very solidly built and amazingly stable. Only minor issue is that if you reverse the leg extensions so that the rubber ends stick out, the legs can fall out when the lock knob is loosened. A spring clip on both ends instead of just one would solve this, though you would then need to press the clip to extend the legs. Also, $300 would have been a reasonable price for this, not $400- But, if you plan on buying things once in your life (as I do), then I guess it's money well spent. Photos shown with BH-55 ballhead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wish it was longer... It is a beautifully designed, very well made piece of equipment. I matched it with Acratech panoramic ball head. Works well for macro and ground-level shots. Might add a leveling base in the future but for now use the leg adjustments to level. I wish RRS made a taller version of this tripod. It is only 17 inches tall at 30 degree leg spread and has a rather narrow footprint (tipping becomes a hazard when I add a EX600 flash on a Wimberley flash bracket).
