MeFOTO RoadTrip Air
The RoadTrip Air is a true travel tripod that’s just 29cm long when packed down, and tips the scales at a mere 1.13kg – and this includes its matching Arca-Swiss compatible ball head. In fact, when it’s packed down you’ll find it hard to believe that it will extend up to 155cm. Setting up is a doddle, thanks to five-section legs that each lock with a single twist, but MeFOTO’s 6kg load rating is optimistic, especially if you extend the centre column. At maximum height, perching anything bulkier than a D5500 with a kit lens on top might feel a bit precarious.
First impressions_ A great option if you want to travel light and aren’t expecting rock-solid rigidity.
