Manfrotto Element Big Traveler Tripod Overview

The gray Element Big from Manfrotto is a mid-range aluminum travel tripod designed for use with DSLRs, mirrorless, and compact cameras.

Featuring a "fold up" 5-section traveler design, the Element Big is capable of collapsing down to just 16.5", making it ideal for storage in a suitcase or backpack. But don't let its compact size fool you; this tripod is capable of reaching a maximum height of 64.6" and a minimum working height of 16.1", and it can support up to 17.6 lb while weighing just 3.5 lb.

With a focus on special features and ease of use, the Element Big series features a few special design features that make it a versatile accessory for any image maker. First, the tripod utilizes rubber-coated twist locks, which help to maintain an overall slim profile and allow for quick setup and breakdown. Secondly, the Element features a detachable leg that attaches to the center column to form a monopod, a great feature for travelers who may encounter locations and venues where tripods are not permitted but monopods are. Third, each leg features three independent leg positions that are engaged by a spring-loaded lock, allowing you to position each leg separately on uneven terrain.

Additionally, the Element Big includes a dual-lock, Arca-type-compatible ball head with quick release plate. The dual-lock design utilizes a large, primary knob for controlling the movement of the ball and a second smaller knob for engaging the 360° independent pan. The head also features a vertical notch for 90° tilts, a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, and degree markings on the panning base.
