Sirui Reporter Series R-5214XL “The Beast”
The Sirui R-5214XL Reporter (aka “The Beast”) is an extremely strong carbon tripod from Sirui's RX series. I take this specific tripod with me when I want something special. With the optional center column it reaches a height of almost 265cm! this gives a unique angle of view when used for landscapes, for example.
It distinguishes itself from other tripods due to its easy-to-remove mounting plate. Due to this unique feature, the mounting plate can be exchanged for the 75mm half-shell adapter or for the optional center column, the RX-66C. The stabilization hook under the head has a built-in Allen key to make changing extra easy.
The R-5214XL has four leg sections that you can adjust by means of a twist lock.
It is an extremely high tripod with a maximum height, excluding the center column, of 200 centimetres. If you use it in combination with the middle column, the working height will even be 263.5 cm
The legs can be placed completely horizontally so that a minimum height of only 10 centimeters is achieved. This is ideal for macro photography, for example. The maximum load capacity of this sturdy tripod is 30 kilos, so that you can also work with heavier combinations of camera & lens or professional video cameras. The R-5214XL Reporter is equipped with rubber feet as standard, but steel spikes are included with which the tripod also has a good grip on soft surfaces.
