Peak Design Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Overview

Photographers looking for a beautifully designed tripod with a great strength to size and weight ratio will appreciate the Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod from Peak Design. Architecturally inspired, and weighing only 2.8 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 carbon fiber. 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.

  • Aluminum leg cams can be released at the same time

    Can this tripod hold Canon RF 100-500m lens?
    Asked by: Amarpreet
    Hi! I think so. But it's best to ask B&H staff just to be sure. So far, I'm using only the kit lens 24-105 for canon R.

    Would the Wimberly AP 500 replacement foot attached to a Nikon 500 5.6 pf fit securely on the head?
    Asked by: William
    Yes, the Wimberley AP500 quick release replacement foot will work with the Peak Design CF travel tripod. You will first have to remove the two small safety stops from the built-in head in order for the tripod foot to fit.

    It is feasible to use a 500mm lens on this, weight wise?
    Asked by: Susie
    I don't know if I would put a prime 500mm lens on this tripod, maybe a zoom to 500mm but not a prime. I don't think it is robust enough for such a heavy and costly lens.

    Is the mount compatible with the peak design dual plate v2?
    Asked by: Stephen
    Yes, but it only fits sideways (if you consider the bubble level the front/back). If you shoot in portrait orientation the 3 legs on the head limit the panning range of motion. If you plan to shoot a lot in portrait I would go for the regular peak design plate (which comes with the tripod).

    Can this fit INSIDE the peak design 20l everyday backpack or only outside?
    Asked by: Tony
    I’m sorry I don’t have the Peak Design Backpack you referenced. However, most of the pics I’ve seen show the tripod inside of it’s bag and sitting inside of the pouch on the outside of the backpack with a Peak Design Strap attaching it securely to the backpack.

    No panning?

    No panning?
    Asked by: Lyman
    The Compact Ball Head on the Peak Design Travel Tripod does not have an independent panning function. For our first foray into ball heads, we prioritized space savings and a streamlined interface based around the most common workflows we saw in R&D and user research. Using the Peak Design ball head ring creates a unique and delightful workflow that is different than typical ball heads and we encourage you to give it a try without comparing features 1:1 with other heads. We are aware that the Compact Ball Head may not be ideal for the video-making community or folks who use panning in their photography. Because of this, we hope to have a pan/tilt video in our future product roadmap or an adapter that would work with this current ball head. Similarly, we are closely following feedback about panning functionality and it may similarly influence our development roadmap. For now, we have an add-on adapter that allows our tripod to be used with any 3rd party ball head using a traditional 3/8” screw. If you use panning frequently, this adaptor allows for the integration of that specific functionality. Additionally, we have seen some folks using panning adapters on top of our ball head.
