MEFOTO Roadtrip Air
Features Bluetooth remote, compact collapsed size, support for loads of up to 6kg Visit www.mefoto.com
MEFOTO has introduced a new lightweight tripod designed with travel in mind – meet the Roadtrip Air. It’s an extremely portable set of sticks, with key features including reverse folding legs, which give it a diminutive collapsed length of 29cm, and a weight of just 1.13kg.
Despite being so compact, the Roadtrip Air reaches a working height of 155cm when fully extended thanks to five telescopic leg sections, and can support a load of up to 6kg. The tripod offers a super-fast set-up with a new Hyperlock design, letting the user twist the legs counterclockwise to unlock and extend and, once pulled out to the desired length, twist back to tighten. This tripod also has a surprise up its sleeve in a centre column that can be easily removed and extended to create a Selfie Stick.
Included in the bag is a smartphone holder which attaches to the tripod plate, and clipped to the leg is a Bluetooth remote to pair with your mobile to trigger the camera, meaning you’ve one less accessory to pack on your travels.
The Roadtrip Air’s quickrelease plate is Arca-swisscompatible for extra ease of use, and it comes in seven different colours.
Competitively priced and good value for money, it’ll cost you £140 including a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
