    MeFOTO ASC32 reviews

    Aluminum Short Column for the GlobeTrotter Tripod is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended with one big caveat Purchased this to go with a MeFoto Globetrotter Carbon Fiber Tripod. This is a useful accessory in that it lets you lower the tripod to within inches of the ground for dramatic landscapes and macro shots. It also makes the monopod feature of the tripod much more user friendly as places the foam handgrip in a more ergonomic position. The big caveat - the short column changes the geometry of the tripod when in reversed / collapsed position and the tripod legs cannot be fully collapsed. You cannot store the tripod in the Mefoto Tripod bag with the short center column attached. You can store the short center column in the bag alongside the tripod with the normal column, but this defeats the simple/portable concept a bit. The tripod is still short with the legs collapsed but not reversed - and you can certainly carry it around but it doesn't travel quite as well with the short center column. For my needs I'm content strapping the tripod and short center column to my backpack and leaving the Mefoto Bag at home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The missing accessory ... If there is one complaint I have about the MeFoto tripod it is that it didn't include this item. It is easy to replace the standard column with this short version. And, given it's relative size, not being made of carbon fiber isn't a deal breaker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well; probably should come with the Tripod. Overall this is a solid pickup if you intend to shoot low--or even as a quick ballhead connector for the monopod leg. You have to unscrew the weight hook, unscrew the ballhead, and this goes right into the center column or onto the monopod leg. For the cost as a separate accessory? Kinda scratching my head as to why this isn't included with the tripod proper even if they jack the price up $30 to compensate. I figure the average person who buys a Globetrotter tripod would not nix the tripod if it was $30 more and came with the short column even if they didn't use it. But, that's just my opinion. There's nothing really superlative about the part short column proper, though. It does it's job and does it well. If you think you might shoot low, get it. It's useful to have and won't break the bank.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for low level shots Works as expected, simple to swap out, but you lose the ability to fold the tripod w/ the legs reversed. A little cumbersome to carry around in an already full bag. I plan to get a small pouch for it to hang from the outside of my backpack, or to protect glass when I have room inside. Also a much better option to use vs the standard column when using it as a monopod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick This allows me to get very close to the ground. Easily attached, though it does require swapping the head with the normal post. Tripod will not fit into case with short post installed but will fit into case with tripod and regular post once removed. About to take it and the tripod to Africa, so will see how it performs under arduous conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for the GlobeTrotter Tripod Excellent accessory for the Globetrotter Tripod, providing low-level shots within 13 inches of the ground without having to reverse-mount your camera. Always keep this mini-column in my tripod bag and use frequently. Must be removed before returning the folded tripod to the bag, but a small price to pay for the benefits.
