The Sirui ET-1204 is a super-lightweight and sturdy tripod with a standard working height, but compact closed size of 42cm, which makes it a good choice for travelling. Legs can be set at three angles, and come with reliable and neat lever locks. The centre column can be reversed to allow ground-level macro shots, and there’s an extra short centre column included to allow the tripod to be fully utilised at its lowest setting. The included E-10 ball head has a 90° notch and an Arca-compatible quick release plate. Also included are leg warmers, a stabilisation hook, and tripod bag with shoulder strap.
