The Big Travel Tripod from Prima Photo offers the traveling photographer a strong and capable camera support in a lightweight and compact build. The tripod features a maximum height of 53.9″, a minimum height of 16.5″, holds up to 17.6 lb and weighs only 3.6 lb. The Big Travel Tripod is actually two supports in one as one of the legs may be detached from the tripod and joined with the center column to form a functional full-size monopod.
Each tripod leg uses a twist lock configuration to extend each of the five leg sections. Additionally, the tripod’s legs can be set independently in three different positions, allowing the tripod to sit lower to the ground for dramatic landscape, macro and portrait photos.
The included ball head uses separate head and pan locks and features a friction adjustment for controlling the speed and movement of the ball. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate with a 1/4″-20 camera screw is included in the kit, along with a durable carry case with a shoulder strap for storage and transport.
