The red MeFoto GlobeTrotter Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Kit offers 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 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-Swiss style 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.

Extendable up to 64.2"

The MeFoto GlobeTrotter has 5 leg sections and extends to over 5.0'

Supports up to 26.4 lb

Weighs 3.7 lb yet strong enough to support a full-sized DSLR. It's an ideal choice mirrorless cameras as well

Converts to Monopod

Compact

The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180°. At only 16.5" when folded, this travel friendly tripod can fit inside a back pack or suitcase

Two Position Leg Angle Stops

For an extra measure of flexibility, tripod legs can be independently locked into place at two different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on uneven terrain or at low camera angles

Foam Grip on Monopod Leg

Provides comfort and safety during long-term use

Rapid Center Column

Uses the same twist-lock system as the legs for fast setup

Recessed Center Column Hook

A spring loaded recessed hook, located in the bottom of the center column, allows you to hang a heavy object from the tripod's center of gravity for increased stability

For a compact design and a wide range of height adjustments

Stable and easy to use

By Justine
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-16

Before buying this tripod, I wasn't a big tripod user and, when I needed one, used a travel tripod that very much valued portability over stability. After going on a photography tour in which everyone else had a better tripod, I realized I needed to up my game. The MeFOTO Globetrotter is a massive improvement over what I had. The twist locks are big and easy to use with my large hands. The ballhead is easy to adjust, with no drift once everything is tightened. I have not yet had any stability issues, although I have not used it in very windy conditions. It packs up well to go in my checked bag when traveling. I chose the green version so that, when on photography tours, I can easily pick out my tripod from among all the black tripods in the back of a van. I highly recommend this tripod if you're after a decent tripod to take on your travels.

Nice but nothing special.

Great product! This is the first Mefoto product I've purchased and it won't be the last!

Seems well built and good value on sale.

Well built, small, light, sturdy. Short fold length is nice for a day pack. Overall height is good for me and I'm 6'2 but I do, of course, need to utilize the center column. Couple of things missing are scrub screws in the top plate for securing a head. Also, only two leg angles. Most in this category have three. This tripods lowest setting is something like 16 so macro photographers might want to look elsewhere. The head had some cosmetic issues with it, slight scrape and a couple of pits in the paint. Too bad for a new item and something that MeFOTO should not let get past QC. I am keeping it, though, as I acquired at a good sale price on B&H and I also put another head on it, a Benro B2 that I've owned awhile. Don't know how the MeFOTO head would have performed because of my switch but I have to say that MeFoto head looks almost exactly like a Benro B1 head and since they are the same company that is most likely the type of performance you'll get from the MeFOTO head that comes with this tripod. Overall, Recommended.

Very satisfied with my MeFOTO carbon fiber travel tripod kit which includes a tripod case. The tripod is easy to use and light enough to carry all day and supports the weight of my DSLR camera and lens. In summary, I am very satisfied with this product.

I bought this tripod for its compactness and light weight to use for short hikes. I use a Nikon D750 with 28-300 lens. There is some creep to the tripod head with this camera requiring strong tension on the ball head set screw.. for twice the price or more I could have bought another Gitzo.

Sturdy and reliable

Would this support a Sinar F Large Format camera?
Asked by: thomas
I use mine with about 9 lbs of camera gear including a 500mm zoom lens and it handles that well. With the cantilevered weight of the long lens I don't feel close to capacity. Even the ball head is sufficient at that weight. Hope this helps.

What is the point of the drag control knob when the head locking knob seems to control drag as well, and both need to be unlocked to rotate the head?
Asked by: Robert
The drag control allows you to easily move the head while keeping it steady, this can be very useful if you don't have a gimble head and want to use it for tracking birds in flight.

Can anyone tell me the different between MeFoto's GlobeTrotter and RiverRoad series. They're priced within $50 of one another, an almost meaningless difference if there are serious quality differences?

The MeFOTO RoadTrip will support 17.6 lbs and get to a height of 61.6 vs. the MeFOTO GlobeTrotter which will support 26.4 lbs and 64.2

question

Is resistant to water and dust
Asked by: Ameer A.
Yes. MeFOTO states their twist lock legs and anti-rotation system provides weather and dust-resistance, and the foam grip on the monopod leg is designed to be beneficial in extreme temperatures when the other tripod legs may heat or freeze from extreme temperatures. It would be recommended for use in a myriad of weather and photographic situations.

Can a Nikon D7200 and D500 DSLR connect directly to this travel tripod? Also, is the tripod case sturdy and have a shoulder strap?
Asked by: Steven
The MeFOTO GlobeTrotter Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod has a quick-release plate that attaches to the bottom of any camera and is held in place by a quick-release clamp on the head. If you don't want to us the QR plate, you would need to remove the head and replace it with a head without a QR clamp and plate, or mount the camera directly to the tripod without a head.The carry case is sturdy enough to carry this tripod, and it has a shoulder strap.
