The aluminum Geekoto X25 Defender 75" Tripod expands to this maximum height by unlocking the twist leg locks and extending the four-section legs along with the rapid center column. Splaying the tripod's legs out enables you to shoot at a minimum height of 24", but the center column is reversible, so you can get even closer to the ground. At the same time, the column can be positioned at a 90°, horizontal angle so you can practically shoot directly over your subject. The 4.4 lb support includes an Arca-type ball head that has a load capacity of 22.04 lb. The supplied quick release plate attaches to cameras via its 1/4"-20 threaded camera mount. The leg with the foam grip is detachable, and it converts into a working 79" tall monopod including the ball head. To store or transport the tripod, fold the legs in the reverse to a compact size and fit it in the included carrying case.
