Technical Details


Product Description

The SIRUI T-1005X Tripod is the lightest and the most compact aluminum tripod in the line. With its 5-section, easy folding design, it can be reversely folded into compact size of 13.39 in, which fits with one of the recommended SIRUI ball heads in the traveling case. Weighing only at 1.0 kg (2.2 lbs), this model is very light for an aluminum tripod, and 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 T-1005X is ideal for use with 35mm photographic cameras, DSLRs and digital or conventional type video camcorders. The recommended ball heads are SIRUI G-10, K-10X.

Forging Technology

Instead of using the traditional casting processes that is typical of construction in the tripod industry, SIRUI is the pioneer to adopt the technology of forging, which can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part as the organizational structure of the metal is more welded and compacted together. In addition, forging enhances the integrity of metal grains so that they remain consistent and continuous, which allows for a longer lifetime as well as better performance that is unrivalled by that which is created by casting.

Anodic Surface Treatment

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 and wear resistance, surface hardness, and enhance color durability.

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.

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 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.

This is a great tripod. Small, well made and very easy to extend and collapse with one twist. It fits in my suitcase perfectly. I have a ball head that is heavy, but I plan on buying a lighters unit. This T1005x will be my primary tripod for my Lumix GX1 camera when travelling by plane.
The tripod arrived on time from the store in excellent condition. The tripod case is a nice touch, but I'm not sure I will carry it on a photo trip.

Awesome Tripod...does not include retractable spikes. I would recommend this tripod to someone that is looking for a lightweight, mobile platform. I was able to take 8 pictures of a bridge(I planned to stitch them together in CS6) at night...10 second exposures each, tripod didn't budge! Easy to carry! Awesome picture!

I needed to make a trip where I knew I'd need a tripod. The ones I had already were all too big for my travel luggage and I didn't want a tripod as a carry-on for flights. This tripod folds down so compactly that I could fit it into a backpack I was carrying. I have found the construction to be more than adequate for my needs. It has securely held my NEX 6 as well as my older Sony A700. I haven't exercised all of its features but like the fact that it came with a shorter center post to support macro shooting.
