The MeFoto Globetrotter Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Kit from Benro is 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 ballast hook is located at the bottom of the center column, allowing a heavy object to hang from it for additional stability.

The Q2 Triple Action Arca-type ball head features separate head and pan locks, a 360° pan index, and an integral bubble level. The included quick release plate has a 1/4"-20 camera screw and rubberized pads for added traction to prevent the camera from moving and protects the finish from marring.

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 3.8 lb yet is strong enough to support a full-sized DSLR. It's a suitable choice for mirrorless cameras as well
Converts to Monopod
The removable leg and center column combine to make a full-size 66.9" monopod without tools
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 backpack or suitcase
Two Position Leg Angle Stops
For an extra measure of flexibility, the 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
Five Leg Sections
For a compact design and a wide range of height adjustments
Quick Twist Rubber Lock Grips with Anti-Rotation Leg System
MeFoto's rubberized locking grips combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and fumble-free setup plus weather and dust resistance
Precision Matched Ball Head
Dual-action, heavy-duty ball head with Arca-type-compatible quick release plate
360 Degree Panning
Accurate panoramas can be easily accomplished using the graduated panning scale for accurate image alignment
Separate Head and Pan Lock
Individual locking knobs make adjustments easy
Integral Bubble Level
The bubble level in the ball head allows accurate adjustments for seamless panoramas
Carry Case with Shoulder Strap
Each MeFoto tripod comes with its own carrying case for transport and protection

Asked by: Halim
Benro MeFoto GlobeTrotter Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod Kit (Black) allows you to remove a leg and the center column, join them together to create a monopod. The Globetrotter can hold a lot more weight than the backpacker that is why it is heavier.
