SIRUI R-3213x Carbon Fiber Tripod with 75mm Bowl Adapter

Regular price R 11,299.00
Tax included.

This new model from SIRUI is one of the most exciting tripods to hit the market in a long time. It features a column-less apex/spider design, exactly like Gitzo’s Systematic range of tripods and SIRUI’s massive 4- and 5-series models. This brings SIRUI's offering a lot closer to Gitzo in terms of design and functionality. 

Column-less tripods offer better stability, vibration absorption and longevity thanks to a simpler design. They also offer instant low-angle shooting and great customization as the center-plate can be removed from the apex and replaced with a variety of other accessories like a leveling base, modular center-column or fluid video heads. The big catch is that all these other modular accessories cost a pretty penny and that’s where this model comes to light – the price includes a modular center column and an adapter that enables it to take a 75mm leveling base.

If you compare the specs of this tripod to its main competitor, the Gitzo GT3543LS, you will also be impressed to see that it extends to the same height (without the column added) and it folds down to the same length, despite being a 3-section tripod, which should technically have a longer folded length. It also tips the scale at 250g less, which makes a big difference for those who travel or hike a lot. 

The GT3543LS + GS3513S Center Column will currently put you back R14 990, whereas this option will only cost R11 299.00. This tripod also includes a padded carry-bag, which is yet another accessory for which you’ll have to fork out more cash if you go the Gitzo route. We believe firmly in the brands we sell and feel that their pricepoint in the market is justified. With this being said, there is an unmistakable difference in manufacturing quality if you hold this next to it's Gitzo equivalent, but the price of each justifies the quality, especially with all of the accessories and the carry bag included with the SIRUI choice. 

Together with the R-2214X, this is without a doubt the best value-for-money tripod we have ever had in our product range.

We have a no-nonsense approach. If a product breaks due to a manufacturer defect, we will replace it without asking any questions. If we have any reason to believe that the product was put through unreasonably heavy usage, we will have to follow the manufacturer's standard warranty procedure. 

Find more info on proper care and use for each brand below. 

NiSi Care & Use

F-stop Care & Use


The manufacturer offers a 10-year limited warranty on all products and we extend that warranty to our customers. Please read the below very carefully, so you understand your position when something breaks or doesn’t work ideally anymore.

It is critical to understand that this warranty only applies to factory faults and not to standard wear and tear. Tripods are subject to a lot of gray areas in this regard as tripods used outdoors, particularly in sand and sea water, are subjected to extreme wear and tear. We will e.g. replace the affected part of your tripod if a carbon tube snaps or cracks without much pressure applied to it or if the apex breaks. We will not replace your tripod or the affected part if e.g. a joint locks up due to sand or salt build up or if a hinge becomes corroded or stiff/floppy and unserviceable due to corrosion or salt build up. 

In sum, if we see that you took good care of your tripod and something went wrong, we will go out of our way to fix or replace it for you. If we see that you dragged it through the mud (literally or metaphorically), then we are unlikely to fix/replace it for you. How you handle your tripod and take care of it, is all the difference between 3- or 20 years of service. 

The best of tripods will not last longer than 2/3 years if used regularly in the sea, INCORRECTLY, and never serviced. Always make sure to extend the lowest leg section first, so you keep the joints out of the water/sand. Always rinse with freshwater after use in the sea, wipe down with a wet cloth, leave extended to dry and ENSURE YOU KEEP THE HEAD AND APEX DRY. If your tripod’s joints start feeling sandy/gritty, open them up, give them a proper clean and lubrication and fine-tune the tension on the joints.

If travelling on dirt roads, ensure that your tripod is in its carry-bag when not in use.

Your tripod will not take care of itself – it is up to you to do so. All our tripods ship with an info-sheet on taking care of your tripod. We also offer a full tripod disassembly and service for R1000, including shipping both ways.
