Zecti 70 Inch Travel Tripod and Monopod Review
The Zecti Tripod is a great choice for photographers and videographers alike.
It comes with it’s own carry case, and in it’s most compact form it measures just 22″/57cm.
There are little feet on the bottom that can move around allowing you to use the tripod on lots of different terrain types.
Although this starts off compact the legs extend to give you about 58″/14.6cm of height, which can be increased to 70″/17.8cm by extending the tripod neck.
There is a small level bubble on the mid section, a handy location as other tripods used have positioned this near the camera where it can be easily covered up.
You also get a hook on the bottom allowing you to add additional weight if required.
The tripod head features a quick release plate, you attach it to your camera or camcorder and you can quickly detach your equipment from the tripod for handheld use.
While functionally fine the quick release plate is the one area that doesn’t feel as premium as the rest of the tripod, but so far this hasn’t caused any problems.
Although it’s been referred to as a tripod Zecti have actually made a fantastic bit of transforming kit as you actually get both a tripod and a monopod.
The extendable tripod neck on many tripods is fixed to stop at a certain point to prevent it coming out of the tripod body. In this case the neck is actually designed to be removed from the main body as it is the monopod!
This monopod starts off small but can be quickly extended to be 65″/16.5cm tall. This is done by twisting the pole to first release them, then twist back to lock them in place.
The monopod takes a bit of practice to expand and there are times when you’ll think you’ve got it but then it’ll collapse on one section, but overall it’s an ingenious way to combine two useful camera gadgets into one.
Considering the two in one nature of this product it’s really good value for money if you’re looking for a decent quality bit of kit that doesn’t cost £100+.
