About Sienna Easel
The sienna plein air tripod is an exceptional piece of equipment. We located one of the best tripod manufacturers in the world to find the perfect tripod for plein air use.
The tripod support for your pochade box is the most important piece in a good painting system. It has to be strong, lightweight, rugged, and rated to support a decent amount of weight, the Sienna tripod excels in all these categories.
This 4 section tripod has aluminum alloy legs and magnesium alloy components which provide fast setup and the durability needed by plein air painters and professional photographers alike.
The tripod and included ballhead are individually rated to support 13.2 lbs. This high load rating is critical to the stability of your pochade box while painting, and in windy conditions. You can rest assured that your tripod has the strength to hold up to both mother nature and You, the painter.
The sienna tripod comes with a precision machined ballhead that ensures smooth and secure operation of your pochade box at any pitch and angle. A patented, dual locking, dovetailed quick-release plate enables fast and secure mounting and dismounting, without having to worry about accidentally unseating the pochade box. The ballhead is controlled by a one-touch adjustment knob that allows for quick and precise positioning
The sienna Tripod comes with a shoulder strap and carrying case made of high quality durable materials to provide maximum protection of your tripod and ballhead.
Features Adjustable Leg Angles
For extra flexibility, the sienna tripod legs can be independently locked into place at three different angles to enable painting in tight spaces, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level. (please note that the supply box can only be used on the tripod when front legs are in standard position.)
Quick Lock Legs with Anti-Rotation Leg System
Tripod height can easily be set by a flip of the quick lock leg levers, which combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and easy set-up.
A hook, located on the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang a bag or backpack in the tripod’s center of gravity for increased stability. It also keeps your gear out of the dirt and mud.
Center Extension column
Fine tune the working height of your pochade box with the easy to use center extension column. A wing nut-style center column-locking knob allows for secure, intuitive-action height adjustments on the fly
Head Mounting Setscrews
Setscrews provide an extra level of stability and security when attaching the ballhead to the tripod’s top-plate.
Spirit Level and Compass
On flat or uneven ground, a built-in spirit level helps keep your tripod squared-off and level to your subject, and a built-in compass provides orientation coordinates.
