Manfrotto Element MII Tripod with Ball Head Overview

The black Element MII Aluminum Tripod with Ball Head from Manfrotto is a four-section support weighing 3.5 lb with a twist leg-lock system. Turning the twist leg locks disengages and extends the legs along the rapid center column to extend the tripod to its maximum height of 63". The tripod can also be setup close to the ground by splaying the legs out in its two-leg position. For transport or storage, the legs fold in the reverse to a compact 16.7" and are easily transported in the included carrying bag.

As part of the tripod, the Arca-type compatible ball head has a main locking knob to control the ball movement, and an independent pan-locking knob for the 360° rotation of the head. The ball head comes with the 200LT-PL-PRO technopolymer quick release plate, which is a light version of the standard 200PL-PRO. The plate is compatible with Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto RC2 quick release systems. The head's load capacity is 17.6 lb, so it can support a mirrorless or large DSLR camera without difficulty.

Manfrotto Element MII Tripod with Ball Head Reviews

Incredible waste of money.

Used twice. Leg refuses to fold. Stay away. Complete waste of money and time.

Excellent photography tripod!

For sure is worth it. It's a really solid tripod, with a really small form factor and it's also really lightweight. It also offers some functions like the possibility to set your camera upsidedown. The ball head is awesome for photography.

I've always used somewhat cheap tripods against my better judgement. Upgraded to this 3 legged hero and I don't regret it. The only thing I'm concerned about is the pinch plastic inside the twist locks. I haven't owned the tripod long enough to know how it'll uphold but it's still much more solid than my last. Packs up easy. We'll see what happens in the future. I do recommend this product.

Works well!

This tripod is fairly easy to set up, it is sturdy and a good size for my need. I'm happy with my purchase and hope this lasts me a while!

Just want to share the two issues I found - The last thin leg is kind of bend without any load. - The screw that secure clamp with ball is higher than clamp, if your plate has flat bottom, it won't fit.

Great Tripod

This tripod is easy to use and seems to be very well made. Shipping was fast and I had no issues.

Very Nice Travel Tripod

By Richard

The Manfrotto Element MII is a light weight (3.5 pounds), well made travel tripod. It is aluminum (I guess) and is finished very nicely. The legs can be extended with three collapsible sections held by twist locks (not flip locks). The legs end with a rubber pad...no ice points are included. The tension of the legs when closing can be adjusted with the supplied Allen wrench. Legs can be in the Normal position or widened out for a Splay stance if preferred. Packs into a nice 17 inch length. Comes in colors but only a small amount of decor on two of the legs shows any color. One leg has a foam grip good for wet or cold days. The Center column can be adjusted up and down and can be reversed for lower camera position. Stands up to 63 inches. Came with an Arca-Swiss Ball Head and a Manfrotto RC2 QR Plate. The ball head is easy to adjust and the two knobs allow for independent horizontal and vertical positioning. The plate is called Quick Release but it needs several turns of a knob to be released (does not have a quick release lever.) Carrying case has string for closing and carrying, not the usual flat strap. A nice travel choice especially when on sale. Richlionx

As far as we are aware, this does not come with a "photo clicker". Furthermore, most basic "photo clickers" only work with smartphones and not cameras. If you need help finding a wireless remote shutter release for your camera, please reach out via email or live-chat and we can assist you!

Will this tripod safely support a canon t6i with a heavy sigma 600mm zoom telephoto lens. Does it come with a plate?

The plate it comes with is plastic, so I wouldn't trust it with a 600mm.

Yes, but I would not recommend it, this tripod has a ball head and is not meant for video shooting. A pan tilt head is what should be use for video. Click the link below to view a better choice; https://bhpho.to/3fngugj
