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.

  • Arca-Compatible Ball Head: Included ball head features an independent 360° pan and an Arca-type compatible quick release.
  • Independent Leg Spread: Each leg can be set to three separate positions.

Versatile, Small Tripod

Manfrotto’s Element Traveller is the perfect choice for enthusiast photographers looking for an extremely small travel tripod that is reliable, lightweight and easy to carry.  It's ab affordable, compact, sturdy aluminium alloy tripod kit that is also highly versatile. It extends up to a height of 143cm folds down to a tiny 32cm, making it a breeze to pack in your bag.  A telescopic mechanism extends the column up to a height of 143cm, making it the perfect compromise between portability and performance. 

With a focus on special features and ease-of-use, the Element Small series features a few special design features that make it a versatile accessory for any image maker. First, the tripod utilises rubber-coated twist locks which help to maintain an overall slim profile and allow for quick set-up and break-down. Secondly, the Element features a two-section centre column which gives the user versatility when choosing a working height, especially when vibration is a major concern. Third, each leg features three independent leg positions which are engaged by a spring loaded lock, allowing the user to position each leg separately on uneven terrain.

Additionally, the Element Small includes a dual-lock, Arca-type compatible ball head with quick release plate. The dual-lock design utilises a large, primary knob for controlling the movement of the ball and a second smaller knob for engaging the 360° independent pan. The head also features a vertical notch for 90° tilts, a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, and degree markings on the panning base.

Looking for a great compact Tripod?

Wow! What a convenient and versatile tripod. It folds so much more compactly than I ever thought possible and comes with a neat carry-bag. I was surprised to find that the legs can splay out flat and wide for those really low down shots. Thankfully my camera has a fold-out screen or this position would have me lying flat out on the ground. I needed to do an overhead steady shot and my regular tripod just does not have that ability. The ball head on the Traveller worked a treat. Smooth and can be tightened firmly enough not to cause slipping and creeping out of position. I have been used to the clip latch type of leg release system, these screw release leg fastenings were quite revolutionary and I actually prefer this system. Unfolding the stands did take a bit of figuring out but once learnt, it is easy to do and will be more smooth as the catches get used a bit more. The unit is light enough for a smaller female to consider always taking it with as a tripod can be a burden to drag along on photo expeditions. I think my other tripods are about to be relegated to the cupboard or used for light stands at home. A thumbs up to Manfrotto on a wonderful product.
