Transverse, extendable legs are the secret to the compact design of the LST Travel Stand. In fact, after you unbox and unfold it you will wonder ‘how did this little guy get so big?’. The legs fold up and over the column to save every inch possible when folded. And each of the 3 legs uses a 2-section extendable design for compact storage but a generously wide base when in use. The LST uses aluminum construction for strength and weight savings. And its flat black finish removes unwanted flare in your shots.
