The 3 Legged Thing X4 Eric 4-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod with AirHead 1 Ball Head (Black) is an extremely lightweight, versatile support system for any point & shoot, film, or DSLR camera. Supporting up to 16.7 lb as a system, the tripod & head together weigh only 3.9 lb. The handsome black tripod features a leg that detaches from the rest of the tripod to become a monopod and the tall center column can be removed and changed out for the included 3.9″”stubby” center column for low-angle shooting. With its 4-section legs and 2-section center column fully extended, the X4 Eric & AirHead 1 reaches a generous maximum height of 85″. Leg angles can be set at three different positions; at their widest and with the column removed, the top of the tripod chassis sits only 5.3″ from the ground (with the head attached, that figure climbs to 9.2″). The leg angles can be set independently to support stable shooting on uneven surfaces. When it's time to transport or store the X4 Eric with the AirHead 1 attached, the legs fold upward 180degree so that the feet reach to the top of the head to form a tight little package (19.7″ long). The aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium AH1 head features a robust knurled knob that operates the Arca-style quick-release clamp. The clamp is designed so that the release knob sits under the lens, making it easier to mount, with more finger clearance. Additional knurled knobs manipulate the black ball head's pan lock
