As you know, I'm building my summer travel photo kit at the moment. You already helped me finding my perfect backpack (thank you!), but I'll need a lighter, smaller tripod as well (currently use the Manfrotto Compact Photo Kit MKC3-P02, which is fine, but I want something a little bit smaller, lighter and more stable). So, per accident I found the brand SIRUI. I found it by looking where to buy a Rollei X4i, and the SIRUI T-025X is exactly the same, only made of carbon fibre instead of aluminum. But I don't know the brand. Anybody made any experiences with SIRUI or even with their ultra light tripods?
