Manfrotto’s Element Traveller Big Red is the perfect choice for enthusiast photographers looking for a travel tripod that is reliable, lightweight and easy to carry. 

The Manfrotto Element Traveller is an affordable, compact, sturdy aluminium alloy tripod kit that is also highly versatile. It extends up to a height of 164cm, folds down to just 41cm and is easy to pack in most bags. 

Key Features:

  • Lightweight and sturdy in the field
  • Three independent leg angles adapt to the worst terrain
  • Detachable leg becomes a full size monopod
  • Aluminium ball head features an independent 360° pan
  • Comes in customized bag for easy storage and transport

The tripod’s legs spread independently and feature three leg-angle stops allowing versatile positioning on almost any surface. The twist lock mechanism enables photographers to get into the perfect position with smooth, rapid movements, giving them the freedom to focus on their shots. 

Manfrotto’s Element Traveller Big takes travelling smart to a whole new level: this smart and small lightweight tripod is designed with a full-size monopod integrated in it. To use the monopod, just remove the tripod leg with the padded leg-warmer and attach the centre column. 

Since lightness is a travel tripod must, photographers can rely on the spring-loaded hook located at the bottom of the centre column to add additional weight for extra stability when needed. 

Manfrotto Element Big is ideal for CSCs, mirrorless and DLSR cameras and easily holds lenses up to 200mm and payloads up to 8kg. The aluminium ball head is engineered to deliver the smoothest movements when framing a desired shot and firmly locks equipment exactly where you need it. If you’re into landscape photography, you’ll love the separate head’s pan lock that allows photographers to take amazing panorama shots easily and precisely thanks to its 360° pan index. 

The ball head mounts an Arca-type quick release plate with a 1/4''-20 camera screw on top that ensures equipment is balanced when using zoom lenses. 

The Manfrotto Element Big comes in four colours (Black, Red, Blue and Grey), in its own padded bag for easy storage and transport.
