Manfrotto Element Traveller Big
Lightweight tripod with ball head (Grey)
Our take on the Manfrotto Element Traveller Big by Crutchfield's Deia Z.
A lightweight tripod for great shots on the go
If you need a reliable tripod that's easy to carry anywhere, Manfrotto's Element Traveller Big is a great choice. This lightweight tripod supports mirrorless or DSLR cameras weighing up to 17.6 pounds. Forget about image blur and camera shake from handheld shooting!
This sturdy aluminum alloy tripod folds up neatly, and includes a convenient carrying case. You can extend the tripod from about 16 inches to over five feet, so it's easy to shoot from the height of your choice. This tripod's clever design also features an integrated monopod. Just remove the tripod leg with the padded leg-warmer, attach the center column, and you have a one-legged support that's great for dynamic action and easy to use in a crowd.

Overview: The Manfrotto Element Traveller Big gray tripod is designed for use with large point-and-shoot, mirrorless, and DSLRs up to 17.64 pounds. It features folding 5-section legs with rubber feet that supply a secure, non-slip base on any surface. The Element Traveller tripod has an aluminum ball head with a quick-release plate and standard 1/4"-20 screw thread. It has a rapid center column, and comes with a convenient, padded carrying bag.
Five-section Legs: The Element Traveller tripod is equipped with five-section legs with twist-type locks. The ends of the legs feature an 8mm thread to accommodate the interchangeable rubber feet (installed) or the included spike feet. The five telescoping leg sections have diameters of 0.51, 0.63, 0.75, 0.87, and 0.98 inches. The legs have independent angle settings at 21.5°, 54.5°, and 83°. The range of height is 16.14" to 55.12" with the center column down, and 64.57 with the center column extended. The closed length is 16.54".
Integrated Monopod: The Traveller Big tripod features a full-size integrated monopod. To use the monopod, you'll need to unscrew one of the tripod legs (the one with the foam rubber grip), and attach the center column and head.
Head Action: The Element Traveller aluminum tripod has an aluminum ball head with a square, Arca-type quick-release plate, allowing you to quickly attach and detach the camera. The head features separate ball lock and pan lock knobs, plus a 360° pan index for more precision in panoramic shots. Dual bubble levels are provided to help you align the camera on two planes, and to ensure that the horizon line is absolutely straight. The quick-release plate has a standard 1/4" screw thread and a screw-type release. The head can rotate the camera a full 360° and tilt the head from -38° to +90° forward and from -38° to +38° laterally.
Tripod Hook: A spring-loaded hook is provided on the bottom of the center column. This allows you to hang additional weight to give your tripod extra stability. It can also be used to hang your camera bag to keep it from getting wet or dirty. You must remember not to exceed the tripod's total maximum weight capacity (17.64 pounds).
Warranty: The Manfrotto Element-series tripods carry a Standard Limited Warranty of two years from the date of purchase. The products are eligible for a free Standard Limited Warranty Extension of an additional three years (a total of 5 years) when registered online.
