MeFOTO GlobeTrotter Classic Compact Travel Tripod - Red

The MeFOTO GlobeTrotter is a compact travel tripod that folds up inversely and also turns into a full size monopod without the use of any tools. It's available in several colors, and in carbon fiber or aluminum. The GlobeTrotter can be used with many different style cameras including a DSLR with a zoom lens.

Aluminum or carbon fiber?

If you do the type of traveling where every ounce counts, the carbon fiber model is for you, weighing only 3.7 lb. Want lightweight but also economical? The aluminum model weighs 4.6 lb and will save you $160.


360-degree Panning

Accurate panoramas can be easily orchestrated using the graduated panning scale for accurate image alignment.


Two Leg Angle Positions

For an extra measure of flexibility, tripod legs can be independently locked into place at two different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level.


Foam Grip on Monopod Leg

For extreme temperatures, this foam grip will come in handy when the tripod legs heat up or freeze over.

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.



The tripod legs can be inverted and folded back 180° making it less than one quarter of its extended size. 16.1" to be exact.


Separate Head and Pan Lock

Individual head tension and lock knob as well as pan lock help make the right adjustment.


Integral Bubble Level

Allows adjustment to prevent uneven pans and head movements.

Precision Matched Q Series Ballhead

Dual action heavy duty ballhead with Arca-Swiss style compatible quick release plate.


Twist Lock Legs with Anti-Rotation System

MeFOTO's innovative rubberized locking grips combined with anti-rotation legs enable fast and fumble-free set-up plus weather and dust-resistance.


Also a Monopod

It's not magic, just ingenious design. The removable leg and center column combine to convert the GlobeTrotter into a full size monopod without tools.



These days, cameras are getting lighter and smaller - your tripod should be no different.


Heavy duty

Supports 26.4 lb.



As the largest of the MeFOTO family, the GlobeTrotter holds larger DSLR bodies, and up to a 70-200 f/4 lens, steady.


Carry Case

Each MeFOTO comes with its own carrying case for transport and protection.
