Manfrotto’s Element Traveller Big Blue is the easiest choice for enthusiast photographers on the lookout for a shuttle tripod that may be reliable, lightweight and easy to carry.
The Manfrotto Element Traveller is an affordable, compact, sturdy aluminium alloy tripod kit that may be also highly versatile. It extends up to a height of 164cm, folds down to just 41cm and is easy to pack in most bags.
The tripod’s legs spread independently and feature three leg-angle stops allowing versatile positioning on almost any surface. The twist lock mechanism enables photographers to get into the easiest position with smooth, rapid movements, giving them the freedom to concentrate on their shots.
Manfrotto’s Element Traveller Big takes travelling smart to a complete new level: this smart and small lightweight tripod is designed with a full-size monopod integrated in it. To use the monopod, just remove the tripod leg with the padded leg-warmer and attach the centre column.
Since lightness is a shuttle tripod should, photographers can rely on the spring-loaded hook located at the bottom of the centre column to add additional weight for extra stability when needed.
Manfrotto Element Big is ideal for CSCs, mirrorless and DLSR cameras and easily holds lenses up to 200mm and payloads up to 8kg. The aluminium ball head is engineered to deliver the smoothest movements when framing a desired shot and firmly locks equipment exactly where you want it. If you’re into landscape photography, you’ll love the separate head’s pan lock that allows photographers to take amazing panorama shots easily and precisely thanks to its 360° pan index. The ball head mounts an Arca-type quick release plate with a 1/4”-20 camera screw on top that ensures equipment is balanced when the use of zoom lenses.
