Product Description

The SIRUI T-1005X Tripod is the lightest & the most compact aluminum tripod in the line.

Weighing only at 1.0 kg (2.2 lbs), this model is very light for an aluminum tripod, & it can support up to 22 lbs of photographic equipment. It also comes with a short center column that you may use interchangeably with the main center column for low-height shooting. Two adjustment settings are available that click in place automatically to lock the angle. The tripod kit includes a high-quality padded traveling bag as well as a 6-year warranty against manufacturing defects.

The T-1005X is ideal for use with 35mm photographic cameras, DSLRs & digital or conventional type video camcorders. The recommended ball heads are SIRUI G-10, K-10X.

Did I mention the build quality is great?

A short, easy-to-mount extension tube is provided that allows for shots very close to the ground.

This tripod folds down so compactly that I could fit it into a backpack I was carrying.

I, like most of you who have gotten to this specific tripod, have spent days (weeks even!) looking for that compact tripod of exceptional build quality and also value! This tripod offers both of those, but with not much to spare.

I love the height, even with my height of 6 feet. There is a small extension that comes in its own sleeve, which can replace the center shaft if needed, and has a storage spot in the awesome bag. The bag is worth mentioning as it is of great quality. The bag's usefulness can be deceiving though as I've tried some long hikes with it and my camera bag. They do not mix well for me. I find that the bag is useful for storage (at home or in a car), but when you need to use the tripod somewhere... just use a camera bag that can hold it or strap it on.

Did I mention the build quality is great? It is. I've read some places that it is mostly forged aluminum, and by looking over it and feeling it, yes it really is of exceptional build quality. In that sense, it is worth the price for sure. Handling it feels great, and there is no problem for me twisting the locks to drop the legs down.

Stability wise, well you get what you can with a tripod this compact. If you manually bracket, then it's a problem (which I do as my camera does not auto bracket). This has not stopped me from using it for that, but I've had some cheapy aluminum tripods in the past that were bigger and were more stable of a platform. It is all about compromises though. I feel that this tripod is stable enough for most uses. If you really need to get that rock solid stance that comes with a $300-$1000 tripod, well then get one.

I bought this tripod with the G20 ballhead also made by Sirui. The product is very well made and easily supports a Canon 5D MKII and a Canon 70-200 L IS MKII lens. Once the camera is mounted and locked on the ballhead there is no lens creep. There is a hook beneath the vertical column of the tripod that allows you to hang a weight (your camera bag with a few lenses will do just fine) to provide additional stability by lowering the overall center of gravity and damping any vibration. Without the additional stabilizing weight of the bag, the tripod/camera combination will be top heavy when you mount a heavy camera and lens.

There are 5 sections for the legs and with the ballhead mounted it folds into a compact length of less than 15". The tripod together with the ballhead weighs slightly over 3 lb. There are two columns included - a long one and a short one that lets you get really close to the ground for low level shots. The legs have two angle settings - 52 and 80 degrees. The compact size together with the light weight makes this a really portable and versatile tripod.

1. the padded bag is a great feature. The bag seems to be high quality, and it hold my kirk ball head mounted(BH3)...though it is tight.
2. The twist locks are easy to use. Of course there are 12 locks vs 6 on my other tripod, so that doubles the set up time.
3. The padded bag will fit in my small back pack, and under an airplane seat.
4. The reduction in weight will be appreciated for any hikes.
5. It solidly holds my SLR w/400mm lens.
6. This is a short tripod, but that is clearly stated in the specs. It seems pretty solid even when raising the center post....which I have not done with others in the past, but may do with this one because this is so short.

If anything changes I will update. But at this point I am thrilled with the setup.

I read quite a few reviews on Amazon and elsewhere before selecting this tripod and I was impressed by how many people wrote lengthy, positive reviews for the product. After purchasing it and using it several times, I am very impressed by its quality, design, and functionality.

I have two other tripods. One is a Manfrotto that I use for video work. It's quite large and heavy, and not something I would use for a casual afternoon of photography. The other is a Slik which is light and fairly portable, but not something that fits into a small backpack. The T1005x fits in a small backpack and is light enough to carry whenever I get the whim to shoot photos.

I use a Manfrotto 496RC2 Ball Head with the tripod and shoot with a Nikon P7700. The ball head is probably a bit of overkill, but it's dependable and has a very easy to use release plate. The ball head and tripod work well together. Even though this is a fairly large ball head, I'm able to fully close the tripod and store both in its travel case.

The design team for this product really paid attention to details. The carrying case that accompanies it is constructed with heavy weight, lined nylon, is fully padded and has two zipper compartments - one inside and one outside. I use the inside pocket to store the short extension tube which has its own drawstring, storage bag. There is a small vinyl flap that covers the zipper head when the inside pocket is closed. This protects the tripod from scratches and shows how much attention was paid to the "little things." The bag has sturdy nylon web carry handles that can be closed using velcro. There are two zippers for the main compartment, both of which have easy-to-grasp zipper pulls.
