Sirui SR-3204 SR Series Professional Carbon Fiber Tripod
The Sirui SR-3204 SR Series Professional Tripod is a 4-section support with carbon fiber legs. Each section has a twist lock that turns halfway, which unlock and enable the legs to extend and reach a maximum height of 59". With three variable leg angles and independent leg spread, the legs can completely splay out, and the tripod can have a minimum height of 4.7", which is ideal for macro or low-angle photography.
Where all the legs meet, the spider has an integrated bubble level to level out your horizon. Also, the spider has a removable top plate with a 3/8"-16 mounting stud; when the top plate is removed, it reveals a 75mm video bowl, which can accept a video fluid head of the same size, and support cameras up to 55 lb. A 1/4"-20 accessory socket is located on the side of the spider, so an arm can attach to support a video light or microphone.
Sirui K-30x Ball Head
The Sirui K-30x Ball Head is an extremely sturdy head with control knobs for pan, tilt, and tension, plus an Arca-style clamp for the included quick-release plate. The pan, tilt, and quick-release knobs are all separate, while the tension knob is integrated into the ball-locking (tilt) knob. The head tilts 90° for portrait orientation, and the quick-release plate has a rubberized surface that prevents camera twist when it's tilted 90°.
The interior ball locking of the K-30x head has a sphere tolerance of 0.01mm, and it's equipped with an orientation-memory locking dial. This helps yield a high load capacity of 66 lb. The quick-release clamp features a secondary release button that prevents any inadvertent disengagement of the camera/plate from the clamp, thereby adding to the head's overall security & stability. The Arca-style platform conforms to standard sizes, so you can use compatible plates from other manufacturers.
The three control knobs allow a photographer to exercise extremely fine control over the orientation of the camera, whether it's a DSLR, 35mm, medium-format camera, or even a camcorder. Pan, for instance, can be adjusted while the tilt stays locked, enabling precise movement that's measurable – there are degree markers at the panning base for panoramic photography.
The K-30x is CNC-machined from an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and anodized with an oxidation treatment that ensures a durable, high-quality finish.
Sirui SR-66C Center Column for SR Series Tripods
Gain a height advantage with the SR-66C Center Column from Sirui, which is compatible with the SR-3004, SR-3204, and SR-3203 tripods. The center column replaces the top plate of the tripod and locks into place with its blue anodized mounting ring. With the center column in place, it unlocks via its twist locks by turning a half turn and extends the 2-stage column's height from 21.5 to 23.6". Even with the column fully extended, the 10x carbon fiber reduces vibrations, which would otherwise cause camera shake. At the top of the column, it features a reversible 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 stud, and at the bottom is a counterweight hook to hang a small sandbag or bag for added weight and stability.
