Must have a state-of-the-art super tiny camera attached at the top. I'm in for three!

Carbon fiber is stronger than steel and weighs much less! Think about that next time you are packing for a space shuttle mission.

It is carbon fibre. Probably very light and strong.

Also, being carbon fibre if you attach four wheels and an engine to it- you could probably enter it into next years indy 500.

Seems like a good deal if you're looking for a tripod. I've seen good reviews around for this tripod, and can't find it anywhere else for less than $120ish. So, it looks like a pretty good deal for this tripod!

$130 at Amazon, and with very good reviews: four stars.

Backed over one of these before...Only thing that showed it was the dirt on the handle!

I keep hearing that carbon fiber is the shizz for tripods - light, strong, dampens vibrations.

Usually see these for a lot more.

Hold onto that hex key you need it to tighten the legs when they loosen up!

I want a four legged tripod. Any fewer than 4 legs and the tripod is not worth $79 to me.

Not if you compare it to some of the other pro carbon tripods... you'd be looking at speding $300 on a good one usually.

Why would you back over a tripod?

Writing "tripod" three times won't make it appear. You need to click the big button.

Oh, you are SO wrong there. This one is CHEAP. I have two others, the cheapest was $170 without a head on it. And I just bought it this week. DAMN YOU WOOT

Specifications

I guess the minimum height is it laying on its side?

Maybe I can play the drum while I use the tool to water the hand vac on the tripod

Any more than three legs, and it ceases to be a tripod...

Good reviews on Amazon. Price on Woot is almost half.

I paid about half-again for a similar tripod, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. The carbon fiber tripods are strong and sturdy, but lightweight (important when you're already carrying heavy camera gear). This one has the option for upside-down camera-mounting, for macro photography, which is nice, too.

The spec says it can support over 15lbs.
I have been looking for a tripod to use with my turducken deep fryer.

I own two Sunpak Pro 7500 tripods for my videography business and they are excellent. After 6 years, the only wear is the bubble levels have both broken.

I would jump on these if I needed a tripod.

An adaptor that interfaces between a Picatinny rail and a standard camera mount? Why not? What could possibly go wrong?

I don't know that I'd trust anything with only three legs to my turducken fryer.

46 woots, and 68 shirts so far. I love this place!

If it's like my current tripod you can actually open the legs up super-wide, so that the camera is lower to the ground but still balanced steadily. This could also refer to the upside-down camera-mounting option, which would put the camera even closer to the ground.
