The T1204SK Carbon Fiber Tripod with G10KX Ball Head Travel Tripod Kit from Sirui combines a lightweight carbon fiber tripod with a versatile ball head. The T-1204SK 4-segment legs feature a twist-lock leg system, which unlocks to enable the legs to extend, along with the 2-stage rapid center column, to reach a maximum height of 54.5″.
With three variable legs angles and independent leg spread and the use of the included short center column, the legs can completely splay out to have a minimum height of 9″, which is ideal for macro or low-angle photography. The magnesium alloy spider has an integrated bubble level, and the legs fold in reverse to a compact 14.6″. The T-1204SK features a detachable leg that converts into a monopod with a height of 52.8″. Additionally, each rubber foot is removable and can accept a spike foot, which helps to secure the tripod into softer terrain.
The paired G-10KX Ball Head is an extremely sturdy head with independent control knobs for pan, tilt, and tension, plus an Arca-type clamp for the included quick release plate. The ball locks down tightly thanks to the double-bevel locking system, and the quick release clamp features a secondary release button that prevents any inadvertent disengagement of the camera/plate from the clamp.
