By far my favorite tripod EVER is the Cayer FP1450. It is incredibly durable so we no longer have to worry about the wind knocking over our phone and camera (ahem, crazy Grand Canyon winds) and it is adjustable in many ways. For example, it can be as low as 7.7″ or as tall as 63.7″, it swivels and it can even turn into a monopod.
Because it is so durable, it is also pretty heavy. We know a lot of travelers prefer a light-weight option so if that’s what you’re looking for, I wouldn’t get this Cayer version. For us, not having to worry about it falling over with our equipment on it is more important so it’s worth it.
