The 5.3 lb PTC-4440PXL Professional High-Modulus Carbon Fiber Tripod from Photo Clam, with its load capacity of 83.3 lb and its carbon fiber–constructed legs, makes for a strong and durable tripod. The High-Modulus (HM) carbon fiber tubes that make up the 4-section legs absorb and minimize any type of vibrations during a long exposure with your camera.
The legs' twist leg locks open with a quarter turn that enables you to extend them to a maximum height of 74.8". With the tripod's three variable leg angles and its independent leg spread, the support can drop to a minimum height of 3.7" and to a folded length of 28.9" for storage or during transportation. The rubber feet, which prevent the tripod from sliding on smooth surfaces, can be replaced with the included spiked feet that help you to secure the tripod onto different types of terrain, and the weight hook under the yoke enables you to hang a camera bag or small sand bag for added weight and stability to the tripod.
