New SIRUI W Series Waterproof Tripods. Water? Sand? Dirt? Bring it on!
Outdoor photographers and videographers who often battle the elements will love the revolutionary new SIRUI W Series Waterproof (and sandproof!) tripods. While most tripods warn against use in or near water and sand, the W Series welcomes it!
The SIRUI-designed Waterproof Sealing System (WPS) has a series of waterproof “O” rings that prevent water from seeping into the tripod leg tubes and locks, which would normally cause damage. The rubber locking components firmly grasp the legs without any gap when they are tightly locked, preventing water, sand, dust or small particles from entering the legs or the locking system. This waterproof (not just water resistant) and sandproof system enables safe and confident shooting in extreme environmental conditions (also ideal for use with spotting scopes and binoculars). Just select the height you need, lock the legs and you’re ready to go!
Equally impressive is SIRUI’s ability to extend and collapse the waterproof legs as smoothly as their standard models. And with 1/2-twist leg locks, setup and break down is fast and easy. Twist-locks are simple in design, easy to operate and easy to maintain. Using the highest quality materials and precisely manufactured leg tubes lets SIRUI achieve uncompromising stability. The SIRUI W-2204 extends up to an impressive 70.9” — essential for use in deeper water and keeping splashes and spray away from your gear — vital when shooting in deeper water or to keep your equipment away from splashes and salt spray – while folding down to only 20.5”. It weighs just 3.7 lbs., yet supports up to 39.7 lbs. solidly and securely, thanks to its 10-layers of 100% Carbon Fiber.
For speed and convenience, the redesigned Leg Angle Lock mechanisms make adjustments faster and easier than ever before. Push the lock and it stays open until you select the desired position. Using it is extremely convenient, even with wet or gloved hands! The slip-resistant rubber feet can be replaced with stainless steel spikes (included) for added grip and stability.
A bubble level is also built in for fast horizontal alignment.
One of the tripod legs converts into a waterproof monopod — ideal when a tripod is not allowed or when you’re shooting in tight spaces — and the center column can be attached for increased height.
A hook on the bottom of the center column can hold a weight bag to further secure the tripod’s position, and the split center column makes changing from a standard center column to short center column fast and easy.
The SIRUI W Series tripod’s unique leg mechanism lets you invert the legs 180° for compact storage and easy transport.
SIRUI W tripods come with a SIRUI USA 6-year warranty, are available in Series 1 & 2, economical aluminum or lightweight Carbon Fiber, and include a custom padded case. Price range is $199.94 – $399.94. For more information on the full line of Sirui products, please go to http://www.sirui.com or check our Facebook site at www.facebook.com/SiruiProfessionalTripods.
