The Slik Pro AL-324 Tripod is a four-section support that is always ready to travel. With its flip leg locks and two-section center column, the tripod's height can be rapidly adjusted to its maximum of 53.9", and it collapses just as quickly to a folded length of 16.5". The center column is reversible, but you can even get closer to the ground via the Rapid Flip-Lock mechanism, which allows you to lower the 2.8 lb tripod with fast and easy independent leg-angle adjustments. The tripod can support up to 8.8 lb, and a threaded port is located on the side of the tripod collar for photo or video accessories. Additionally, a fitted case is included for your travels.
