The TR406 ZipShot Compact, Ultra-Light Tripod from Tamrac is constructed of sturdy, high-quality aluminum with a heavy-duty ballhead. Weighing in at just 11 oz (312 g) and measuring 15" when folded, the ZipShot is highly portable and can fit almost anywhere. It can support a DSLR with a lens, or a camcorder up to 3 lb (1361 g).
There are many situations when a tripod is needed to capture a great shot: a fleeting photo opportunity of the perfect sunset or the family photo with everyone in it. The problem is that most tripods are heavy, difficult to carry and slow to set up which causes many missed photo opportunities. This tripod is a great remedy. When its two red shock cords are released, the Zipshot springs open in seconds to a height of 44" (112cm). A single release lever of the included ballhead allows the camera or camcorder to be positioned at any angle so vertical and horizontal shots are easy.
