Ideal for adventurous thrill-seeking photographers, the green Manfrotto Off road Aluminum Tripod and Ball Head is a compact and lightweight camera support. Weighing in at just 1.4 lb, the Off road tripod is an excellent choice for backpacking, hiking and just about every outdoor photographic adventure. Three-section twist-to-lock telescoping legs support 5.5 lb, and reach a maximum height of 40". When folded down the tripod measures 24".

Each leg has a walking stick style spiked foot that can be covered with the included rubber feet, or sand/snow baskets keeping it stable on a variety of surfaces. Adding to its compactness is its minimum diameter of just 2" when collapsed. The built-in ball head has a single locking knob to control the ball movement, a thumb screw to secure a camera to the mounting plate, and a bubble level to help align your frame to the horizon.

    Off road Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head (Green) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Potential, but not useful I ordered this tripod and returned it with the only testing being in my living room. I think Manfrotto dropped the ball on this one. I actually really like the tripod design and simplicity and I found the legs to be quite stable for their weight. However, the main issue is the ball head. The ball itself is aluminium but the bracket that attaches to the camera is plastic. The end result is that there is quite a bit of play and camera movement. In my opinion, this tripod acts more like a monopod. If Manfrotto would have added a couple of ounces to build a stronger head, I probably would have kept this tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hiking and travel I have to admit i was concerned if the tripod would be stable enough and strong enough for travel in the black forest of Germany. I really appreciated the lightweight and easy to pack feature when combined with the backpack. It was easy to get to and carry with the camera on it when moving to another area. The only thing i would prefer different is a faster easier way to extend the legs. It must unscrew, pull and tighten each segment (3) on three legs. I realize it may add some bulkiness to the tripod but it did take time to setup for the shot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So so. Need many improvements. Is very well made in Italy and very nice looking. Also plus it is not bulky. But it is not light and not easy to use. The way legs open (twist-to-lock) is kinda original, but I imho not convenient at all especially for outdoors. Maybe need some more experience I do not know. I put 4 stars because got it on sale. For full price it should be 2 stars, 3 stars tops...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not stable enough Reading the specs I bought is for my DSLR thinking I will take it when I want to travel light. Sorry to say, even without any thing mounted to it it is not stable, tried with and without the rubber add-ons but evey touch makes it move for a few seconds... had to remove it and get a more stable one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For the price, not a bad, lightweight tripod I bought this tripod because it was on sale. I use a lot of tripods for light stands and wear them out frequently. If you're looking for a small, lightweight tripod I would recommend you take a look at it. But, remember it is very lightweight and will only support a strobe or lightweight camera.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from A cheap tripod! I have few Manfrotto products including couple of tripods and they are all well made, so I expected a lot better design even for a cheap price but it is a very cheap design. I had to return it as it is totally worthless. Very surprised that Manfrotto distribute this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Not tall enough. Awkward leg adjustments. There are no stops. You actually have to watch the index marks to make sure you don't pull the sections completely off when adjusting. Spindly, light and unstable.Rough ball.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rubber feet too small using hard rubber The tripod is extremely light and the rubber feet which is left up to the buyer to install are really to small to fit the legs. I would be afraid to put a pro lens on the camera and use this tripod.
