Excerpt: The Vitruvian 9255 is a compact tripod with a clever built in monopod. If the compact tripod seems like too much effort, then you can detach a leg, reattach it to the centre column and take a monopod with you, leaving the rest of the tripod in your car, or in its own neat carrying case. The update(s) to this tripod lie in the new MH5400-652 head, it features 2 spirit levels for landscape use and one smaller spirit level for portrait use.
Pros: Monopod built in, Small and light, 5yr warranty, Provided carry case, 3 spirit levels in head
Cons: Double lock quick release plate quickly lost its second lock feature, Portrait / Vertical spirit level small
