For those of us who pursue the adventures associated with photography and videography, traveling light is a must. We have to take so much gear in anticipation of what we might get the opportunity to shoot, that every little reduction counts.
One way to reduce weight and bulk is by using a compact lightweight tripod that can still get the job done by handling our regularly used equipment including full size DSLR cameras, etc.
The MeFOTO GlobeTrotter Air Travel Tripod is exactly such a tripod. It is sturdy and lightweight since it is made of aluminum alloy. It is capable of supporting up to 17.6 pounds and extending to 68.1 inches. “The telescoping 5-section HyperLock design allows the user to set-up and break-down the tripod with speed and ease by simply turning the rubber foot in one direction to extend the leg and in the opposite direction to lock it at the desired length”. It features an Arca type compatible ball head with an Arca type plate, and it can be adjusted to work as a monopod. The legs can be spread so that the tripod is lowered down to 12 inches, and folded closed it is so compact that it measures only 12.2 inches.
If you would like to purchase the MeFOTO GlobeTrotter Air Travel Tripod, you can head over to B&H Photo Video and purchase one for $159.00.
