The Sinnofoto M2522 aims to be the essential portable camera accessory.

As with any good tripod the M2522 can be collapsed down to a more compact, travel friendly, size and it comes with it’s own bag which should help protect it when you’re on the go.  There is also a sleeve case included to help protect the tripod head, a very nice touch.

Folded size:15.8″to 55.9″ and net weight: 3lbs

Sinnofoto M2522

A twist lock system is used to extend or retract the legs. The legs are capable of two positions, selected by a small flip lock, one being the standard tripod position and the other being a much wider and lower stance.

The feet on the bottom are fixed position and can’t be replaced and there is a central hook giving you the ability to add additional weights to keep the tripod firmly grounded.

There are bubble levels to make sure you have a correctly leveled shot and the tripod head offers a wide range of movement.  It’s a ball head, which is better suited to photography than videography, and it can be removed completely from the tripod if you want to fit something else, for example the Edelkron SliderPro.

Sinnofoto M2522 Features

A quick release plate is included to allow you to quickly remove your equipment, it uses a screw system to keep the plate in place and this system does a great job of keeping heaving equipment, such as DSLRs, exactly where you want them.

The ball head is great quality but, as mentioned above, is better suited to photography.  It’s much harder to use this tripod to shoot video than a tripod with a control leaver, such as the Manfrotto BeFree tripod. but for static shots it works well and has the advantage that the camera can be pointed down very easily.

The Sinnofoto M2522 is a very good tripod considering the price.  It offers excellent quality, a good feature set, and the ability to easily swap the tripod head if you want to.  It’s available from:
