Rate & Review

The MeFOTO BackPacker Air Travel Tripod provides an exceptional combination of materials, construction and features - plus a splash of color! The MeFOTO BackPacker Air Travel Tripod (Black) is great for point & shoot, mirrorless and micro 4/3 cameras. The tripod folds down to only 12.6 inches and extends upto 51.2 inches, it weighs 2.6 lb and can support up to 8.8 lb. The sleek design makes it smaller and lighter than ever before. Although petite when compacted, MeFOTO BackPacker expands over 4 feet, giving you a wide range of height. Weighing less than 3 lb yet strong enough to support a full DSLR. And also is ideal for the new wave of mirrorless cameras. Only 12.6" when folded, this tripod can fit inside a back pack or suitcase making it super travel friendly. These days, cameras are getting lighter and smaller - your tripod should be no different. Each MeFOTO comes with its own carrying case for transport and protection.

Operating the tripod is now faster as well because there is only 1 leg lock per leg instead of multiple locks per leg. A simple half turn unlocks the leg and it can be stopped at any position. The telescoping center column converts to a selfie stick simply by removing the weight hook. Each tripod includes a spring-loaded smartphone adapter and a rechargeable Bluetooth remote with a clamp that attaches to the handle. A colour matching camera plate in the same anodized aluminum finish as the tripod is included for perfect match. The single action ballhead features an anodized aluminum housing and can support up to 8.8 lb payloads. A matching anodized aluminum Arca-Swiss style camera plate with a 3-in-1 screw is included. 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.

  • 360-degree Panning: Accurate panoramas can be easily orchestrated using the graduated panning scale for accurate image alignment.
  • Two Leg Angle Positions: For an extra measure of flexibility, tripod legs can be independently locked into place at two different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level.
  • Recessed Center-Column Hook: A spring loaded recessed hook, located in the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang additional weight from the tripod's center of gravity for increased stability.
  • Separate Head and Pan Lock: Individual head tension and lock knob as well as pan lock help make the right adjustment.
  • Precision Matched Q Series Ballhead: Dual action heavy duty ballhead with Arca-Swiss style compatible quick release plate.
  • Integral Bubble Level: Allows adjustment to prevent uneven pans and head movements.
  • Compact: The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180° making it small enough to carry just about anywhere.
  • Five Leg Sections: Get the height you need and ultimate versatility.
  • Twist Lock Legs with Anti-Rotation System: MeFOTO's innovative rubberized locking grips combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and fumble-free set-up plus weather and dust-resistance.
