The LS-325C + LH-40 Travel Tripod Kit is a 5-section support with 10x carbon fiber tubes with a total weight of 5.4 lb. The CNC-machined 6061 aluminum parts of the tripod are hard anodized, which makes the surface tough against scratches and scuffs. The twist leg lock system is easily opened with a simple quarter turn along with the 2-section rapid center column, which enables you to extend the tripod to a maximum height of 75.5". With the tripod's three variable leg angles, it allows you to splay the legs completely out, so the support can drop to a minimum height of 9.4". At the tripod's apex, the spider has been hollowed out to keep the tripod lightweight, and a 1/4"-20 threaded socket is found under and on the side of the spider for photo or video accessories. To store or travel with the tripod, you can fold it to a length of 24.2".
