Sirui T-2205X overview

  • 1Description

The Sirui T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is a very lightweight, compact tripod that extends to a maximum height of 56.9" and folds down to just 14.6" for easy transport. Weighing only 2.6 lb, the T-2205X supports loads up to 26.5 lb thanks to its thick upper leg sections and forged aluminum alloy chassis. The head mounting screw is reversible, with a 1/4"-20 mount on one end and 3/8"-16 on the other.

Constructed of 8x carbon fiber, the T-2205X tripod is suitable for use with just about any head and any 35mm camera, DSLR, point & shoot, or camcorder. It's an excellent travel model due to its relatively light weight and the fact that its legs fold upward to achieve a folded length of only 14.6". That's a figure that won't necessarily grow if you attach a head – the legs extend past the height of many head models that you'll mount, so the entire package stays very compact to fit comfortably in most carry-on bags and many backpacks.

The T-2205X comes with a short center column so that you can set up extremely close to the ground for ultra-low-angle shooting. With the short center column installed, you can set the legs at their wide angle (80°) and shoot from only 5.3" from the ground.

Forged aluminum results in stronger components than the traditional casting process that's often used for tripod chassis. Forging leads to more compacted metal and enhances the integrity of metal grains so they remain consistent and continuous. This leads to a longer product life and better performance
An anodizing surface treatment, produced by an electrolytic oxidation process to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts, is applied to increase corrosion & wear resistance and surface hardness, and to enhance color durability
Silicone twist locks for leg stages
Anti-leg rotation system makes setup faster
Automatic leg-angle lock mechanism for speed and convenience – independently lock legs into place at three different angles
Retractable spiked feet for stable operation on looser terrain
Short center column allows the tripod to reach extremely low positions – minimum height of 5.3"
Leg warmer on one leg facilitates handling in extreme weather conditions and helps protect it
Center column hook allows you to add a ballast for a sturdier setup in windy conditions
Well-designed padded travel bag with sturdy shoulder strap for carrying

    Sirui T-2205X reviews

    T-2205X 5-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 94.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tripod Great Tripod!!! I've been using many tripods over last twenty years, many of them from traditional brands, recently I knew Sirui, a new brand for me, and found some reviews with good recommendations. I was looking to something small e lightweight, after some research I decided to buy Sirui T-2205X. Well, same quality traditional brands like Manfrotto, Benro, Gitzo, etc.., this tripod really impressed me, well built, great stability, precise engineering and fine finished. I'm so glad with the freedom and quality of this pretty tiny carbon tripod, that fits inside my bag. Sirui T-2205X is serving very well, a big deal!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product I purchased this tripod to mount my D810/70-200 2.8 combo. This is a solidly built product and very compact. It comes with a nice case as well as a shoulder strap. It would have been nice if I could leave my K-40x mount on it when in the case. I think the next size smaller will allow this. But, I like my set up. I'm about 5'7 tall. When this tripod is fully extended (not including the center section), with the K-40x and my D810, I can just peek at the LCD on the top of the camera on my tippy toes. The camera range finder is about 3 below my eye sight. This is a very comfortable setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive lightweight tripod I was reluctant buying this tripod at first. I spent months and months looking around trying to find a lightweight yet sturdy tripod when hiking, to replace my Manfrotto 055CXPRO4. I was looking at Gitzo tripod also (I own 1 Gitzo tripod and 1 monopod) but decided to give Sirui a try given the price. Wow!! Very impressive -- lightweight and very portable. The tripod is very well made and look as good as Gitzo tripod. I even like the Sirui twist lock more than the Gitzo; I feel it's easier to lock. I tried taking a shot indoor and think it's stable enough. I have to try shooting outdoor but don't foresee any problem with that. I bought it with G20X ballhead and love it as well!! Thanks B&H for expedited shipping!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute First Class Quality I just received my tripod and the G-20X Ball Head from B&H. When I opened the package and took the tripod out and set it up I was blown away by the quality of workmanship and precision this tripod has. Extremely easy to set it up and the tripod is rock steady. I had several Gitzo tripods before but this one beats any of them I ever had. The fact itself that it easily folds down to 15 with the Head on it is very nice since it fits into any carry-on luggage. It comes with a beatifully made very high quality Balistic Nylon padded case which is nicer than any tripod case I ever had. All in all I am extremely happy with the purchase and obviously Highly Recommend it to anybody. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good tripod Have been traveling recently up the coast of Maine shooting lighthouses. That meant climbing all over rocks and boulders. This light and very sturdy tripod has been a real delight to use. Packs easily in a suitcase and in a backpack. Coupled it with the Sirui K-20x Ball Head. It held my Nikon D750 with the 24-120mm nikon lens. Even in strong gusts, there was no problems. I like this as much as my somewhat slightly heavier Induro tripod. The setup is pretty quick. I don't always fold it up completely when working out of the car, but even then, it is still quite short when the legs are collapsed. Nice 'pod and cost much less than my Induro setup. Love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tripod I have been using a MeFoto Roadtrip aluminium tripod for quite a while and I have enjoyed using it but I wanted to upgrade to a carbon fiber tripod. The Sirui T2205X fit the bill perfectly. It has a lot of similarities to the MeFoto but it has a few differences that I really like. The weight reduction is nice on longer hikes. I also like the spring loaded leg position locks and the option to use a short center column. The leg twist extension lock/unlock and number of extensions are what I've been use to so I don't have an issue with this. I've had a D7200 with the 200-500 mm lens mounted on a gimbal head and the tripod is very stable . The price and quality are great. No complaints.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice features, stable unless fully extended I've only had this for a few weeks, but I've gotten to use it in a variety of situations. Indoors it's nice to be able to retract the spikes, and outdoors they bite nicely on rock or ice. I find the stability very good with quick damping of vibrations, unless the lowest legs are fully extended. Then it's still possible for tack sharp images, but vibrations take longer to damp out. The short center column seems a nice touch, but it's not quick to swap out in the field. Combined with the added instability when the legs are splayed out means I haven't found much use for it. For very low shots I find I get better results reversing the center column and hanging the camera from it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was unsure, Not Now First carbon Fiber tripod I have spent the money on. Light weight yes and with the 20 head it all fit in the carry bag with ease. 5 Leg sections usually is not all that stable but I have to say, it did very well for me. It did have a little flex with nothing on it. After I put my D750 and the 200 500 on it, it was quite stable. No leg creep or movement at all. Easy to extend and collapse with just 1 twist I could loosen all the leg locks and a 1/4 turn was all it takes. The price was low for the quality of this tripod. This is my first choice when using 1 of my 3 tripods now. Should have got this one first.
