The N Series tripod is an excellent all-purpose model with many useful features not found in other tripod systems.
By using high quality materials and designing the leg tubes to have only a 3mm difference in diameter for added stability, the tall N-2204 is also able to be folded very compactly! It can extend to an impressive 65 in. (165cm), while folding down to only 18.1 in. (46cm)! Yet, it weighs only 2.9 lbs and has a load rating of 33 lbs.
The N Series tripod has a unique leg mechanism that allows you to move the legs up 180°. This allows the tripod to be folded significantly smaller than comparably sized tripods with conventional leg designs. Simply depress the leg angle lock and invert the legs 180°. An added advantage is that you can keep a ball head on the tripod and it will still fit in the tripod case.
In addition to being a high quality tripod, N Series tripods have the ability to be converted into a monopod! This is really convenient when tripods are not allowed or when you’re shooting in tight spaces. And for added height, you can attach the center column onto the monopod.
