Photographers looking for a beautifully designed tripod with a great strength to size and weight ratio will appreciate the Aluminum Travel Tripod from Peak Design. Architecturally inspired, and weighing only 3.4 lb, this innovative tripod reduces folded volume thanks to legs that store closer together than traditional tripods. When folded, the tripod is roughly as thick as a water bottle. Boasting impressive specs, the tripod height adjusts from 5.5 to 60", folds down to only 15.5", holds up to 20 lb, and is constructed from aluminum. For fast deployment, the five-section aluminum leg cams can be released at the same time. Ground-level shots are quickly captured by simply reversing the center column.

Peak Design Aluminum Travel Tripod Overview

Photographers looking for a beautifully designed tripod with a great strength to size and weight ratio will appreciate the Aluminum Travel Tripod from Peak Design. Architecturally inspired, and weighing only 3.4 lb, this innovative tripod reduces folded volume thanks to legs that store closer together than traditional tripods. When folded, the tripod is roughly as thick as a water bottle. Boasting impressive specs, the tripod height adjusts from 5.5 to 60", folds down to only 15.5", holds up to 20 lb, and is constructed from aluminum. For fast deployment, the five-section aluminum leg cams can be released at the same time. Ground-level shots are quickly captured by simply reversing the center column.

Epitomizing the expression less is more, is an impressive ergonomic ball head that replaces cumbersome knobs and levers with space-saving locking and adjustment rings. The rings facilitate omnidirectional movements that are locked in place with a simple twist. Crowning the ball head is a quick release system compatible with Peak Design standard plates, and most Arca-type plates. Arca-type L-brackets can be attached by removing the safety pin inside the clamp. Under the center column is a hook for attaching a stabilizing weight.

Included with the tripod are a handsome fabric storage case, a mobile mount, 2.5 and 4mm hex wrenches, and a bushing removal tool.

    Has anyone used this tripod and the adapter with a fluid head? If so, is the tripod stable enough to shoot action sports video?
    Asked by: Shawn
    The tripod can hold plenty of weight on its on own, so you can use the Universal Head Adapter and a fluid head with a flat base on it. We recommend using a leveling base in addition to the fluid head of your choice to take into account any uneven surfaces. One such base is the Oben LH-2510 Leveling Base Head, BH # OBLH2510. https://bhpho.to/37yxTRx

    Is there a tension adjustment for the ball head?
    Asked by: Helen
    There is a ring below the mounting plate that you can use to adjust how tight or loose you want it to be, and you can squeeze it down pretty tight but I wouldn't recommend that. You should follow the manufacturer guidelines the max weight of the equipment it can hold.
