The green 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.

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

    GlobeTrotter Air Travel Tripod (Green) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
    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 I would buy this product again Perfect, we purchased this as a gift for our daughter. Just what she wanted and easy to set up and use. Thank you for the prompt service as well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for cleaning oil off a lens It works, but I would still use a blower to get grits off first. I wouldn't want to get the brush too dirty. I also recommend not to use the graphite end every time you clean, only when you actually get oil on the lens because it leaves a gray powdery residue. I usually just brush the stuff off or blow it off with a blower.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't really recommend it for a proper cleaning I tried cleaning one of my zeiss lenses with it. As is the case with cleaning anything with alcohol, it left a residue after the alcohol evaporated and I had to clean it again with my lenspen.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very, Very Useful, ....except when shooting wide. These are great. But I get some vignetting when shooting wide (16MM). I wish they had bigger ones that I could use with a step up to avoid the dark corners.
