I was concerned five leg locks might be a hassle but a few seconds of twisting and it's fully extended. I have small hands but can twist three open at once! The rubber twist rings are smooth turning and easy on the hands. Leg angle is easy to adjust: press the leg angle lock and move the leg into one of three preset positions. Also, the legs can be flipped 180° for compact storage with head nestled between the legs.
This is a solid tripod: no flex, slipping or play in the leg sections. I don't have gear near the 22LB rating, but my EOS 6D and EF 70-200 4L IS USM are rock solid on the T-1205X. I'm 5'8' and, when the legs are extended, the T-1205X is at eye-level with K-20X ball head, RRS L-plate and DSLR attached. Normally I leave the center post down or slightly elevated. A telephoto lens ring adds a couple more inches to the height. I mainly use the T-1205X for low level macro so the big deal is it's ability to open wide, individually adjust leg angle for uneven terrain and get as low as 5 inches from the ground. If you're a tall person and mainly use your tripod while standing, you should buy a taller model.
The T-1205X comes with a well-made black padded bag and detachable shoulder strap. It's great for protection while stowed or while carrying. To fit the bag with head attached, the legs must be inverted (flipped 180°) so the head is nestled between the legs.
It ships with two center posts: one normal length post and a tiny one (drawstring storage bag included). The tiny post, along with the 80° angle click-stop on the legs, allows the rig to be lowered to 5 inches. The posts can be merged together to form a long post by tightening a setscrew. I've not bothered as the normal post is long enough for me. The post can be reverse mounted for particular angles near ground level.
The Sirui T-1205X is a handsome set of legs with impeccable workmanship, thoughtful design, quality materials and smooth moving parts. Amazon's tiny product images don't do it justice. It's easy to use and carry and the best darn travel tripod I've hoisted my camera on!
