Are you looking for a tripod for the serious work? The Sirui ET-2004 carries 12 kilos of camera equipment without bitching. Move your camera effortlessly in any position with the supplied headset. To be able to photograph close to the ground, you can spread the legs almost completely. This way you can get up to 13 cm above the ground. And when you go off the path, turn the spikes out of the feet, to firmly position your tripod away.
