Photography Talk Review


I wouldn’t have much credibility, as founder and president of Photography Talk, if I didn’t spend as much time as possible actually shooting digital photos with my equipment. You may have seen my photos that accompanied the articles about the 2012 Long Beach Grand Prix during April. Motor sports is one of my favorite subjects.

Now, typically, tripods don’t excite me much, as only a few have grabbed my attention. Sirui, an innovative Chinese company, however, has designed and built a very impressive product, actually a number of products. Sirui obviously doesn’t spend much time thinking of clever names for their products, for example, the N-2204; it’s a tripod. That’s a good thing, actually, because it means the people at Sirui focus their time on the excellence of the engineering of its tripods and ball heads.

There were 4 real customer reviews of the Sirui N-2204 all giving it 4 star rating.

In this review, I want to tell you about the Sirui N-2204, which is an 8X carbon fiber, 4-section tripod. When you unlock the legs for the first time, you can’t help but notice how smoothly they extend. Matter of fact, every moving piece on this tripod operates so precisely that it’s easy to forget this tripod’s price tag. You would think this tripod would set you back close to a grand, however it’s less than half! The extended legs are very sturdy and receive two big thumbs up from me!

The Sirui N-2204 Tripod weighs only 2.8 lbs. (1.3 kg) and folds into a convenient 18-inch length that fits in the included padded traveling bag with a strong, durable shoulder strap. This tripod will support as much as 33 lbs. (15 kg) of equipment, so it’s perfect for DSLRs and medium-format cameras as well as digital and standard camcorders.

I also like the Sirui philosophy of keeping the entire design, manufacturing and assembly processes in house. In addition, Sirui has pioneered the use of forging technology, which makes its tripod parts stronger than casting. The actual structure of the metal, the internal grains, are more consistently bonded with forging, so a Sirui tripod lasts longer and gives the company no pause to offer a 6-year warranty against manufacturing defects.

A number of other features of the Sirui N-2204 tripod are noteworthy.

  • Each of the legs has a spike that is recessed inside the leg. When you need that extra grip and support, you simply twist the rubber foot, exposing a solid stainless steal spike that is approximately 3/8” in length.
  • Detach one of the legs quickly and it becomes a monopod to which you can attach one of the Sirui Ball Heads.
  • The Sirui N-2204 Tripod also includes a separate shorter-than-normal center column, which replaces the primary center column when you want to position your camera close to the ground for macro or extremely low-angle photography.

Sirui’s attention to detail is evident in the leg warmer it included on the monopod leg. You’ll be able to shoot without a glove and have more control of the monopod during cold-weather shoots.

My Sirui N-2204 tripod came with the company’s G-20 Ball Head. (Sirui’s K-20X and G-10 Ball Heads are also compatible with the N-2204 Tripod.) I love my Acratech GP ball heads, so, honestly, I planned to remove the G-20 and mount my Acratech GP on the Sirui tripod. After all, Adorama sells the Acratech GPs for $399.95 and the Sirui G-20 for only $99.95. I wasn’t expecting much satisfaction from this low-priced ball head. I’m a firm believer that “you get what you pay for.” My preconceived notion of the G-20 couldn’t have been more wrong. I tested the Sirui N-2204 Tripod and G-20 Ball Head with my largest lens: a 300mm f/2.8 mounted on a Nikon D800 DLSR.

I locked the camera onto the G-20, framed and took a quick shot. Afterwards, just for the heck of it, I pushed down on the camera and lens while the G-20 was still in lock position. I was floored with how much resistance this ball head had! You might have heard the saying, “Small axes can chop big trees,” well, the GP-20 does it with style! I spent an afternoon putting the tripod and ball head through a variety of tests and will state with enthusiasm that you should order one immediately before Sirui reconsiders and raises the prices. My Acratech GPs have been collecting dust during the last couple months since I’ve been using the Sirui N-2204 Tripod and G-20 Ball Head.





Still Not Convinced and think Why SIRUI?

Forged for Greater Strength and Reduced Weight
Instead of using traditional casting methods typical of tripod construction, Sirui is a pioneer in using forging technology in manufacturing.
During the forging process, the deformation and recrystallization of metal causes the structure of the metal to be more welded together and compact - greatly increasing its strength-to-weight ratio. This enables Sirui to build products with exceptional strength and durability, that are surprisingly light.


Forging ensures the integrity of metallic fibers so that it remains consistent inside & out. Good integrity allows for a longer lifetime as well as better performance. In fact, the forging process can create parts that are much stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process.

Forged Cast

The added strength of forging allows thinner, lighter components. Others’ cast components must be thicker and heavier to provide the same strength.

8 Layers of Carbon Fiber for Superior Load Capacity
SIRUI is one of the few manufacturers who make their own Carbon fiber leg tubes. The use of 100% carbon fiber and 8 cross pattern layers, makes SIRUI tripods and monopods capable of supporting impressive load capacities, while providing a lightweight product. In addition to providing high strength and low weight, carbon fiber is also highly resistant to temperature changes, friction (no need for lubrication) and corrosion.

x

Custom Anodized Surface Treatment
All SIRUI products undergo a special anodized surface treatment that makes all metal surfaces highly resistant to wear and increases durability and weather resistance. Anodizing is an environmentally safe electrochemical process. This also prepares the surface to provide better adhesion of colored finishes.

x

Temperature Tolerance Test
Photographers often work in extreme environments,like blazing deserts or sub-zero mountaintops.
It is vital that your equipment works under these conditions. That is why we torture-test all of our products - under conditions that far exceed what most people will ever experience (-40° ~ 212°F/-40° ~ 100°C). SIRUI is the first Chinese manufacturer to continuously perform the 4-hour test (equal to many years of use) on all products.

x

Certified Longevity Tests For Quality & Reliability
To confirm the quality and reliability of SIRUI tripods
(and our dedication to details), an independent testing lab (SGS) subjected the leg angle lock spring mechanisms to exhaustive longevity tests. The test reports show that even after 100,000 actuations, the springs continued to perform perfectly!

x
Retractable Steel Spikes
For added stability outdoors,
SIRUI 2/3/4 Series tripods and monopods have retractable stainless steel spikes, stored inside the slip-resistant rubber feet.

x
Free Short Center Column
TX/N/M/SN/R3/R4 series tripods allow
low angle shooting for unique perspectives
and macro photography. And most models
include a free short center column
(excludes R series and T-005/025)
for added flexibility.

x
Half-turn Leg Locks
To lock the legs of SIRUI tripods/monopods, we utilize twisting locks for maximum reliability and stability. Simply twist the rubber leg locks 1/2 turn and the legs will extend by themselves.

x
Precision Leg Tubes

The difference in diameter of N/TX/R/SN series tripod tubes is only 3 mm. Thanks to precision manufacturing, the legs open and close easily, while the small diameter difference provides added leg stability.

x
Non-Twist Center Column/Legs
All SIRUI center columns and
legs have keyed,
grooved channels, that prevent twisting
providing additional stability and safety
for your photographic equipment.

6 (SIX) Year Warranty on ALL SIRUI Products!!!

Convert to Monopod

The detachable leg of S-N/N/M series tripods lets you transform your tripod into a monopod!
Reduces the amount of equipment you need to carry and makes your camera bag or backpack lighter.
