Dolica CX700 Professional Carbon Fiber Tripod
With 100 percent carbon fiber legs, the Dolica CX700 can handle up to 25 pounds of gear, but only weighs about four pounds itself. Taller photographers will appreciate the tripods 70 inch maximum height though the tripod can shoot from as low as 20 inches too. When folded, the legs reverse so it fits in a smaller space. The sturdy and tall CX700 also includes a detachable monopod and a quick release plate.
