This Sienna Tripod was designed and developed by and for the artist. The tripod has aluminum alloy legs with magnesium components. The tripod is designed to hold 13.2 pounds. The three-piece leg system per leg offers an infinite amount of adjustment for whatever your situation may call for. The hook provides a place to hang your bag, a way to store your stuff, and a storage spot to keep your things off the ground. The carrying case protects the tripod during travel while providing a convenient shoulder strap for comfort.
