Sirui T-025x Travel Tripod Review
There is an old photography adage that anyone who has been around the craft has heard and most likely even uttered themselves: "the best camera is the one you have with you." The same is true when it comes to tripods, and when it means the difference between bringing one along and not, the impact it could have on the quality of your photography is far more than a mere afterthought.
In light of this reappropriated adage, one of the growing trends amongst tripod manufacturers is to market their three-legged assistants as "travel" or "compact." Regardless of whether common sense indicates they qualify for such a title, it's an attempt to attract a market of increasingly mobile photographers. It's no secret that the far reaches of the globe continue to close in on one another thanks to the ubiquitous and (if you plan ahead enough) cost-effective travel options. That and in combination with the manufacturers' awareness that people are more on-the-go and simply numerous today than ever before in societies that continue to champion size and portability. Take for example the cell phone or the personal computer and compare each of them from 15 years ago to what is considered the standard today.
In this Pentax Forums In-Depth Accessory Review, we take a hard look at the Sirui (pronounced "sue-ray") T-025x Carbon Fiber Tripod as it stands on its own merits, as well as how it compares to its predecessor of the same signature minus the 'x'.
Not only do we investigate as to whether the T-025x is an upgrade or not, but we also determine if, once and for all, we have finally found the definitive Pentax travel tripod!
