MeFOTO RoadTrip Air Travel Tripod Review
MeFOTO RoadTrip Air Lightweight Travel Tripod with Bluetooth Remote
If you’re looking for a lightweight Travel Tripod with versatility you may want to check out MeFOTO’s new Air Series that recently launched. It’s a colorful series of tripods that are compact, versatile and quick to set up. It will work with smartphones, compact cameras, action cameras, mirrorless and small DSLR cameras.
The MeFOTO RoadTrip Air Lightweight Travel Tripod is a Powered by Mom Holiday Gift Guide Pick.
I very recently received MeFOTO’s RoadTrip Air travel tripod and have been trying it out. Now as mentioned I’ve only had it for a short time so I have not been able to take it yet with me on a trip, but I’m looking forward to do so. At only 2.5 lb (1.1 kg) it’s very light but far more rugged than some of the lightweight tripods I’ve seen. Other ones were so flimsy that I couldn’t even be bothered to try them out. I’ve yet to take a tripod with me on a trip that required me to travel by air, I can’t be bothered with the extra weight and for the media and press trips I’ve been on, it would have been handy to have one but more pain than it was worth. However at only 2.5 lbs and with quick and easy set-up I can’t think of a reason not to take the MeFOTO Air on my next trip.
It may be light but it has some great features, including being able to be extended about to 61 in (155cm), hyperlock legs so that instead of dealing with multiple locking mechanisms or each leg you’re only dealing with on. Way quicker for set up and breakdown time.
While I personally don’t have a lot of need for a selfie stick (I know I’m old fashioned I still sometimes ask others to take the photo for me) it is handy that the MeFOTO RoadTrip Air can also convert to a selfie stick and has a bluetooth remote, that I can use. Check out our super quick demo below. It really is that quick to adjust this travel tripod.
The MeFOTO RoadTrip Air easily fits into my backpack and my carry-onand seems very sturdy. I do like that I can put my smartphone on it for small product shots I do at home. We tried my daughters iPhone 5 on it below but it easily fits my iPhone 6 and our iPhone 6+.
I like that we have maneuverability with the swivel ball, especially when using our smartphone. I’ve been able to move it to various angles and heights. It’s a smooth transition from one angle to the next.
The spring loaded smartphone adapter attaches to the piece above and below and it’s quick and easy to attach and use.
There’s also a convenient pocket in the carry bag for the MeFOTO RoadTrip Air Travel Tripod for the smartphone adapter.
With what I’ve tried so far and as an amateur travel photographer the MeFOTO RoadTrip Air suits me and I can’t wait to take it on my next trip which is coming up early in the new year.
