The MeFoto GlobeTrotter Tripod Aluminum Black is a compact yet sturdy aluminum tripod that weighs only 4.6 lbs but supports up to 26.4 lbs. You can mount either your mirrorless or DSLR camera with telephoto lens and have all the sturdy support you need. The GlobeTrotter also converts to a monopod in seconds with no tools necessary, offering you unprecedented versatility. The GlobeTrotter is small and compact while you're on the go, but it extends to over 5 ft. tall when you need height to capture the shot.
The MeFoto Globe Trotter tripod's legs each spread independently with two-position leg angle stops. There's also a spring-loaded recessed hook, located in the bottom of the center-column where you can hang additional weight from the tripod's center of gravity for additional stability. Lastly, the GlobeTrotter has separate head and pan locks along with a bubble level so you can adjust with precision.
