Lightweight Travel Tripod

Manfrotto’s Element Traveller Big Black is the perfect choice for enthusiast photographers looking for a travel tripod that is reliable, lightweight and easy to carry. The tripod utilises rubber-coated twist locks, which help to maintain an overall slim profile and allow for quick setup and breakdown. Secondly, the Element features a detachable leg that attaches to the centre column to form a monopod, a great feature for travellers who may encounter locations and venues where tripods are not permitted but monopods are. Third, each leg features three independent leg positions that are engaged by a spring-loaded lock, allowing you to position each leg separately on uneven terrain.

Additionally, the Element Big 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.


The tripod’s legs spread independently and feature three leg-angle stops allowing versatile positioning on almost any surface. The twist lock mechanism enables photographers to get into the perfect position with smooth, rapid movements, giving them the freedom to focus on their shots. 

Manfrotto’s Element Traveller Big takes travelling smart to a whole new level: this smart and small lightweight tripod is designed with a full-size monopod integrated into it. To use the monopod, just remove the tripod leg with the padded leg-warmer and attach the centre column. 

Since lightness is a travel tripod must, photographers can rely on the spring-loaded hook located at the bottom of the centre column to add additional weight for extra stability when needed. 

Manfrotto Element Big is ideal for CSCs, mirrorless and DSLR cameras and easily holds lenses up to 200mm and payloads up to 8kg. The aluminium ball head is engineered to deliver the smoothest movements when framing the desired shot and firmly locks equipment exactly where you need it. 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 lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example.es.
