Camera bag and accessories specialist Peak Design has started a Kickstarter for the perfect Travel Tripod.

The San Francisco-based company has spent four years doing research to create a tripod with minimal wasted space but also maximum functionality. Instead of knobs, the tripod is secured with levers. An adjustment ring, locking ring and quick release sit on top of a ball head design so that you can shoot in landscape and portrait mode easily. There's a 20 pound weight limit but also a counter weight hook. Additionally there is a phone mount.

Check out the video below and head over to Kickstarter to pre-order. A $289+ pledge gets you an Aluminum Travel Tripod while a $479+ pledge gets you a Carbon Travel Tripod. Currently over 7,000 people have backed the project for over $3 million. Delivery is expected to take place in December 2019.
