Peak Design Reinvents the Travel Tripod

I can honestly say that I've never seen anything like the Travel Tripod by Peak Design.


It doesn't have any protruding parts, it's slim, it's strong, and you have both aluminum and carbon fiber options. It's Arca Swiss compatible and has an innovative head with a single ring for adjustment. Even though it extends to 60 inches, it weighs as little as 2.81 pounds (carbon fiber model). And it accommodates DSLRs, mirrorless, and smartphones.


Their Kickstarter campaign is off to a roaring start, not surprisingly. You might want to go over there and take a look at all the details. This is most likely the next tripod that I will be packing for nimble photography.
