The SWP TRP-X is barely larger than the palm of your hand, with an integrated spirit level and weighs just 800 grams including the tripod head. The legs each consist of five segments and can be pushed together to a pack size of 16 cm - when extended you can reach a working height of between 16 and 42.5 cm. A solid tripod is bulky and weighs a few kilograms. In luggage, it often doesn't even fit diagonally in the suitcase and nobody wants to carry ballast around for kilometers on hikes. Conventional travel tripods are smaller and lighter, but do not have the necessary stability.
The set includes a professional ball head that can be rotated 360 degrees and fixed with just one screw. The tripod legs swivel up and down and the center column is reversible.
