Is the folded length of 22.83" included the ball head? What is the folded length without the ball head?

The listed folded length of the Benro Tortoise Columnless Carbon Fiber Three Series Tripod with GX35 Ball Head is with the head attached. The Benro GX35 Two Series Arca-Type Low Profile Aluminum Ball Head is 3.5" / 90 mm in height. The folded length without the head would be 3.5" / 90 mm less.

Are the leg angles fixed at 80, 50, 25 degrees or can you select any angle with the locking button?

Each leg can only be locked at preset angles. The locking mechanism/jam is released, the leg angled, and then relocked so that each leg can be independently set.

Is there an accessory that allows for mounting the camera to the bottom of the tripod for low-to-the-ground shots?
Asked by: Waldo
No, there is no adapter made that we are aware of that allows you to connect the camera ot the bottom of the Benro Tortoise Columnless Carbon Fiber Three Series Tripod with GX35 Ball Head. But the tripod does allow one to set it very low, 7.7 inches.
