The MeFOTO GlobeTrotter Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Kit is an ultra-compact yet sturdy tripod and ballhead kit. Key features include:
- Ultra-Compact Travel Kit. The GlobeTrotter breaks down to just 16.1", yet the 5-section tripod extends to 64.2" with center column extended. Additionally, one leg can be removed and used as a monopod when needed. The included carrying case provides simple transport.
- Supports Medium Weight Class. The manufacturer rates the tripod to hold 26.4 lbs, but we’d say 12-15 well-balanced lbs would be a more accurate max. The carbon fiber tripod legs keep flex to a minimum and allows the the kit to remain extremely light at 3.7 lbs with ballhead attached.
- Twist-Lock Design. The tripod legs use a twist-lock system for both leg and center column extension. There’s two leg angle position locks for low-angle shooting, and the recessed center column hook allows you to hang a heavy object from the tripod’s center of gravity for increased stability.
- Matched Ball Head. The included dual-action heavy duty ball head is compatible with arca-swiss type lens plates and uses a knob release to maximize compatibility. It has separate head and pan locks for simplified use, with an integrated bubble level to help straighten your setup faster. We include (1) small PU-50 quick-release plate that’s sized for camera and small lens use, but we do also carry 4 different sizes separately.
