The red MeFoto RoadTrip Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Kit offers a sturdy, compact tripod that extends to 5.1', supports up to 17.6 lb, and folds down to just over 15". The RoadTrip is actually 2 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 hook is located in a recess at the bottom of the center column, allowing you to hang a heavy object from it for additional stability.

The ball head offers separate head and pan locks, a 360° pan index, and an integral bubble level. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate with a 1/4"-20 camera screw is included in the kit, along with a durable carry case with a shoulder strap for storage and transport.

Comparing the MeFOTO RoadTrip Aluminum and Carbon ...

Comparing the MeFOTO RoadTrip Aluminum and Carbon tripods. The only difference I can find is in weight: Carbon: 3.1lb; Aluminum: 3.6. Every other spec appears to be identical. So I'm basically paying double to save 8 ounces, is that correct? Am I missing anything?
Asked by: Austin
That is correct, however carbon fiber absorbs vibration better, which is better for long exposures.

question

Is the ball head removable? I would like to put my own ball head on this tripod.
Asked by: Michael H.
No, I don't see any way to remove the head, nor do I see anything in the instruction manual about removing the head.

question

Is the MeFoto Carbon Road Trip tripod really only .5 pounds lighter than the aluminum version? Since it is close to twice the price, it does not seem to be such a cost effective weight savings. For those who have handled both, is there a significant real-world difference? Thank you.
Asked by: Chotto B.
I have not handled both, but can tell you that the main difference between aluminum and carbon fiber is the vibration absorption and damping properties in carbon fiber are far better than that of aluminum. There are third party reviewers of tripods that have tested vibration resonance and decay for various tripods, if you're interested. For me, vibration damping was a very high criteria, so I was able to justify the cost. Additionally, the reason that the weight savings are not that spectacular is because only the legs and center column are carbon fiber. The chassis and head are still aluminum. It really comes down to you taking a look at what your true needs are (travel, weight, photography style, etc) and assessing what product fulfills those criteria the best.

question

Does this come with a carrying case?

question

Is it possible to upgrade the head on this tripod?
Asked by: Thomas
Yes, it has the standard screw mount like any other tripod and head. Keep in mind it is a small tripod in diameter so putting a large head on it could be sort of unwieldy.

question

I am considering this product but I have heard some concerns about the QR plate. I have an EM1. Does anybody have any experience of suggestions? Thank you.
Asked by: Moshe S.
Ditto the other answer. The plate screws in with allen wrench (or has groves for a screw driver or coin). I use it primarily for travel and have no complaints.

question

I was looking to buy this tripod, Is it good for DSLR with 70-200 mm or Sigma 150-600 mm lens attached ? I mostly do landscape in low light situations or long exposure. My concern is vibration rendering a shot blurry. Thanks,
Asked by: munish
I purchased this tripod to be used for a Sony mirrorless camera. I think with the equipment you are using it will not be steady enough, especially with the center pole extended all the way.
