This tripod transforms into a monopod without the need for tools. Simply take off the removable leg to use the MeFOTO RoadTrip as a monopod to give support and balance to your camera instead of shooting handheld. The monopod gives you more stability to stop blurriness caused from movement – great for sports and wildlife photography.
The tripod legs can be locked into place at two different angles, so you can shoot even in small, cramped spaces that are harder to get into. You’ll be able to get that perfect shot, even at low angles or on uneven terrain.
This tripod is light, but with a spring-loaded recessed hook at the base of the center column, you can hang a heavy object for increased stability. This will weigh down the tripod to keep it in place without budging while you’re trying capture shots. This is useful when you’re shooting outdoors in wind or on uneven terrain.
The MeFOTO RoadTrip uses a twist-lock system on the centre column as well as the legs for a quick and easy set up. The legs have rubber lock grips that are quick and easy to twist into place with an anti-rotation and anti-slip system.
Take some awesome panoramas using the graduated panning scale for accurate image alignment. The in-built bubble level ensures your images are set up evenly. With a separate head and pan locks, it’s easy to make quick adjustments.
With an Arca-type compatible quick release plate, the ball head is heavy duty, holding up to 8 kilos of weight. Constructed with titanium and aluminium, the RoadTrip is sturdy and strong. It will take on bumps while you’re on the road, and the materials are light so it’s easy to transport around.
Take the MeFOTO with you wherever you work or travel, without the weather stopping you. If you’re exposed to dust or splashes, this tripod will be protected with a weather resistant coating. So you can get on with your shooting without letting the weather stop you.
With a foam grip on the monopod leg, the MeFOTO Roadtrip Convertible Tripod is comfortable to carry. Tripods can get quite hot in warm weather, which can make it uncomfortable to transport around, but the grip makes it much easier to handle. Weighing just over 1.5 kg, it’s easy to carry from place to place.
Most tripods are black, but this MeFOTO adds a splash of colour. It’s small and light so it won’t weigh you down when you’re on the road and you’ll easily recognise it as your own. Extending more than 150 cm and folding back to 40 cm, it’s compact to pack away but gives you full height range when you’re shooting.

It’s best to avoid carrying your tripod while the camera is mounted as it puts your camera is at risk of damage.
If one leg of the tripod starts to feel looser than the others, use an allen or hex key to tighten the loose leg.
Put a full bottle of water or other weight inside the included carry bag and hang it off the centre tube hook for added stability.
As most photographers use tripods for landscape and scenery photography, it’s worth investing in some Lee Filters, which guarantee the best colours and exposures.
Using a shutter remote means you’ll avoid touching your camera as it begins its exposure process, so be less likely to accidentally cause camera shake and create blur in your images. Shutter remotes range from infrared remotes that cost no more than $50 to advanced intervalometers allowing for long exposure photography.
Get a Syrp Genie, built for time-lapse photography. Simply attach the Syrp Genie to the top of the tripod and allow the Genie to rotate as it captures multiple exposures. The Genie also produces a great effect for perfectly smooth rotation panning shots for your videography.
