The MeFoto Globetrotter Aluminum Travel Tripod Kit from Benro is a sturdy, compact tripod that extends to 64.2", supports up to 26.4 lb, and folds down to just over 16". The GlobeTrotter is actually two camera supports in one: a foam-cushioned, removable leg attaches to the center column to convert to full size monopod.
The tripod's legs can be spread independently with two-position leg angle stops. A spring-loaded ballast hook is located at the bottom of the center column, allowing a heavy object to hang from it for additional stability.
The Q2 Triple Action Arca-type ball head features separate head and pan locks, a 360° pan index, and an integral bubble level. The included quick release plate has a 1/4"-20 camera screw and rubberized pads for added traction to prevent the camera from moving and protects the finish from marring.
