Benro announces the MeFOTO Transfunctional Travel Tripod
A transfunctional travel tripod? yes it’s transfunctional; it can be converted to function as a monopod, it only weighs about 3.6lb (1.6kg), and it folds down to about 15.4 inches (40cm).
Sounds impressive considering it extends to 61.6 inches (1.5 metres).
Other design features include dual-angle legs, a recessed center column hook for adding weight to steady the tripod, an integral bubble level, and a Q-series ballhead with separate head and 360-degree pan locks that accepts an Arca Swiss quick release plate.
The MeFOTO travel tripod comes in five colours:
The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180° making it small enough to carry just about anywhere
Recessed Center-Column Hook
A spring loaded recessed hook, located in the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang additional weight from the tripod’s center of gravity for increased stability
Separate Head and Pan Lock
Individual locking knobs help to make the right adjustment
Integral Bubble Level
Allows adjustment to prevent uneven pans and head movements
