MeFOTO GTAIRBLK overview

The black GlobeTrotter Air Travel Tripod from MeFoto is a sturdy, lightweight, and compact aluminum-alloy support designed for the modern enthusiast and smartphone photographer.

Extending to a maximum height of 68.1" and capable of supporting up to 17.6 lb, the GlobeTrotter Air is not all that different from its Classic series sibling—with one big difference—HyperLocks. The telescoping 5-section HyperLock design allows the user to set-up and break-down the tripod with speed and ease by simply turning the rubber foot in one direction to extend the leg and in the opposite direction to lock it at the desired length. This design also helps to reduce the tripod's overall weight down to a transportable 3.2 lb.

Appealing to both system camera users and smartphone photographers, the Air series comes equipped with a few features that many users will find both fashionable and functional. Starting off, the Air series features a color-matched Arca-type compatible ball head, which not only includes a color matched Arca-type plate, but is also capable of independent 360° pans—an uncommon feature on a ball head this compact. Secondly, the entire center column may be removed from the tripod and, using HyperLock technology, is capable of extending into a stand-alone selfie stick. A folding smartphone adapter is included for convenience as is a universal Bluetooth remote capable of triggering the camera on most smartphones. Lastly, MeFoto aims to make user manuals a thing of the past with new intuitive icons on the tripod's body. Each icon is placed at a point of interest or adjustment and details, in easy-to-understand pictograms, how to adjust the tripod for any shooting situation.

For those looking to use the GlobeTrotter Air for low-angle photos or on a table top, each one of the tripod's anodized aluminum legs can be spread independently down to a minimum height of 12". The 3-position leg angle stops allow the user to adjust the tripod's height to accommodate almost any shooting situation. Additionally, a removable spring-loaded hook is located in a recess at the bottom of the center column, allowing you to hang a variety of weighted objects to increase the tripod's overall stability.

As a travel tripod, the GlobeTrotter Air is designed to fold in an inverted style with the 3 legs collapsing upward around the center column. This design allows the GlobeTrotter to attain a compact folded length of just 12.2", which fits conveniently within the included soft carrying case.

HyperLock Leg Locks
The HyperLock design allows the user to set-up and break-down with a single knob.
Built-In Selfie Stick
The integrated Selfie Stick utilizes the ball head for positioning and includes a Smartphone adapter and Bluetooth remote.
Lightweight and Compact
Fits into luggage and won't weigh you down with a folded length of 12.2" and a weight of just 3.2 lb.
Simple Set-Up
User-friendly icons highlight points of adjustment on the tripod and make user manuals a thing of the past.
Dual Action Ball Head
Included ball head features a primary lock, separate 360° independent pan lock, and utilizes an industry standard Arca-type compatible quick release.

    MeFOTO GTAIRBLK reviews

    GlobeTrotter Air Travel Tripod (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Goldilocks' Travel Tripod. If you're used to carbon fiber tripods, this feels really heavy, ...and cold! But the size is exactly what I wanted. I wanted something small and easy to travel with. I own a lot of tripods and they are all too large or too small. This one is perfect. Small, but not so small that I can't see over the grass or fence in front of me. The legs extend quickly and easily. I have to be careful to lock them in, or one of the legs begins to creep/collapse (which could be catastrophic if it pitched your camera into the ocean or over a cliff). This will be my go-to tripod when I am traveling as a tourist and want something that fits into my carry-on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not happy but still keeping it One more than one occasion, a leg has loosened while in the middle of use, probably because i was moving the tripod around. The telescoping column is too easy to engage. I find that I have to loosen the pan knob all the way to turn the tripod, otherwise, I might accidentally loosen the center column. Wish the head was removable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again The tripod is very light weight and sturdy, perfect for hiking to remote spots. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because: 1) You can't put spikes on the feet for use in snow and ice, the pads are integral to the lower section of the tripod, maybe Mefoto will make a spike accessory that can slip over the pads 2) the carrying bag is useful but does not contain a zippered internal pouch like my Mefoto Roadtrip tripod. There is a small pouch that holds the adjustable holder for a smart phone but it has no extra room if you want to carry an extra quick release plate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, high and visible This is absolutely the best lightweight tripod I've ever used and the extended height was most useful. I needed it not only for photography but also for videoing entertainment on a 10 day cruise. The orange color made it very visible, people did not run into it wile I was videoing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a world of compromises, this travel tripod is my best bet I've had this tripod about 18 months now and love it.� All tripods are an inherent compromise between features, cost, weight, and size, and as a frequent traveler I find that it is the best options for my needs.�� The biggest reason I love this tripod is because I have yet to see another tripod that reaches 68" yet folds up to under 14".� As a taller person, the extra height is great for taking family photos from an angle not below my chin, plus it's more comfortable to take shots from 4-8" higher than the standard 60-64" of a normal travel tripod.� If but for no other reason, the max height / minimum size combination makes this a 5-star tripod for me. The leg locks are quick and convenient when you want full extension, but can be a little annoying when you want to make adjustments or do a partial extension.� As other reviewers have mentioned, it's possible to make a mistake every now and then about whether the leg is fully locked before setting weight on it. The ballhead is pretty solid, but it's not the greatest in the world for my Canon 80D / Sigma 18-35 combo.� It'll hold, but adjustments require accounting for a little bit of drooping.� On any of my lighter lenses it's very solid.� Quick Release is arca swiss, no problems with getting my camera locked tightly. I wish the hook were a little easier to access for windy conditions, but it's not a dealbreaker. If minimum size and maximum height are not your biggest concerns, then there are probably better tripods for you at this price point.� If they are your biggest concerns, then I can't imagine a better selection for you.
