Product Description:
Sienna Tripod was crafted for plein air artists and photographers. It has all the important features an artist looks for in a tripod. It is sturdy on all surfaces, durable for travel and years of hard use, simple to set up and fold, and easy to carry. Our customers agree, the Sienna Tripod is a winner!

This 4 section tripod has aluminum alloy legs and magnesium alloy components which provide fast setup and the durability.

The tripod and included ballhead will each support up to 13.2 lbs. This high load rating is crucial for the unpredictable and grueling conditions that a plein air painter will subject to a Pochade Box and Tripod. The Sienna Tripod will withstand windy conditions, uneven ground, and passionate painters. It is stability at its best.

The ballhead on the Sienna Tripod is precision-machined and will smoothly work with your Pochade Box at any angle and adjustment with ease and security. Quick and strong mounting and dismounting is in the patented, dual locking, dovetailed quick-release plate. The benefit of this is that the artist does not have to worry about the Pochade Box becoming accidentally detached from the tripod.

Easy and precise positioning is simple with the one-touch adjustment knob on the ballhead. Setscrews provide an extra level of stability and security when attaching the ballhead to the tripod’s top-plate.

The amazingly flexible legs make this tripod unique. Each of the legs on the sienna tripod can be independently adjusted and locked. This feature is invaluable for working on uneven or cramped surfaces. Each leg is locked at different angles so that balance is ensured every time. The artist can easily adjust the height of the legs by flipping the leg levers. The anti-rotation legs and quick locks on the leg levers allow for a breezy set up.

The intuitive design of the Sienna Tripod includes a hook on the center column. The hook is meant to be used as a hanger for your bag or carrying case. The hook was specifically put on the center column to so as not to throw the tripod off balance. This practical feature ensures that your items don’t have to be left on the ground.

The tripod allows the artist to easily adjust the height of the pochade box with a center extension column. Make your height adjustments with a wing-styled, locking knob. Make swift, secure adjustments!

A spirit level and a compass have been built into to the Tripod. The spirit level keeps ensures that the tripod is level to the subject and squared-off, and the compass is there to provide orientation coordinates.

Convenience at its best – the Sienna Tripod comes with a durable carrying case that has a comfortable shoulder strap. It is made from durable materials that will protect your Tripod and ballhead from the hustle and bustle of traveling from location to location. The carrying case is perfect for easy transport.

(Please note that the supply box can only be used on the tripod when front legs are in standard position.)

Excellent quality tripod. Lives up to the product description. Sturdy and well built with a comparable carrying case as well. Above and beyond any other tripods I have tried. Also bought the Pochade box and it all works very well together with the tripod.

Am pleased with the overall quality of this tripod; it looks as though it will last a long time to come. I especially like the quick release feature for my Sienna pochade and the nice carrying case.

I like the tripod. I have a little trouble connecting the pochade but it will just take practice.
I also like the pochade but am disappointed that it does not have a handle.

The first time I put my Sienna Pochade box on the Chineese tripod the escutchen pulled out of the Pochade and i had to use epoxy to put back in .It is a cheap set up and all in all not worth the money.

It is not the lightest tripod, but it is stable. I particularly like how the quick release plate locks tightly into place with no wobble. The hook at the base of the center post is great for hanging your backpack when painting. This is the fifth tripod that I have tried with my poshade box, and it is by far the best of the five.

Ordering and receiving this item was quite easy. I am anxious to start using it. It appears to be stable and very nice in appearance. I do like the travel bag that it is carried in plus the compass.Thanks for selling such excellent products. I also bought a Pochade Box and Sienna Supply Box. I am very pleased with these products also.
