The T-005X provides an optimal combination of small packing volume / low weight and stability.
The stability is impressive for a tripod of this size and is better by far if the extendable center column dismantled and the ball head must be put directly on the tripod Cross. Without center column can then also the minimum height of 10cm can be achieved and there are ground-level shots possible.
All parts convince by a high quality materials and are meticulously crafted.
The ball head is equipped with a quick release plate and a lockable camera pan function and is much more stable than it can expect its size, no problem for an SLR with standard zoom or slight telephoto.
Simultaneously with a half turn to all extracts of a leg with one hand unlocked (pushed together and locked again) be.
The three angles of the legs offer flexibility in orientation.
The Sirui exceeded my expectations, it is the perfect addition to my equipment and will accompany me well often.
The price-performance ratio is absolutely in order.
