I gotta say, this tripod looks pretty slick. I am surprised nobody else has thought of a similar design before. It is only logical to reduce negative space as much as possible, especially on a tool that is meant to be super portable. I fully trust PeakDesign to pull this off. They have an impressive history of successful Kickstarter campaigns and I have no doubt this one will be a hit too. I can’t wait for this to hit the shelves.
