MeFOTO BackPacker travel tripod (black), free shipping

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
MeFOTO BackPacker travel tripod (black)

Asking Price
110.00 USD

Item Location
Rochester, NY (United States)

Item Description
The MeFOTO backpacker is an excellent 2.6 pound travel tripod that easily fits into a carry-on suitcase, backpack, or just use the carrying case. It folds down to 12.6 inches, and extends to 51.2 inches. The center post can be reversed for macro shooting. The ball head pans, and has a small bubble level.


I have used it once on a trip to France, with excellent results. (K-3 and DA21 Limited)



I really see no signs of use, so I probably could classify it "like new". The original box is not included. The case and Arca-type plate is included.

I should mention that the center column is not fully extended in the photo. It goes higher.

Is there a shorter center column, one that puts the ball head right on top of the central plate without having any column coming out of the bottom?

I have the Globetrotter version of this MeFoto tripod. Excellent quality for the price! Surprisingly nice ball head too.

If I understand your question, the answer is no. I don't believe the column collapses like the MeFOTO Roadtrip. The shortest height is listed as 17.3", but this is with the center column still in place.

Nice tripod.
It's a Takumar 85/1.8, custom finished in silver by dcshooter. Thanks, it's my favorite lens.

Don't need the tripod, but two observations -
That's a really cool photo!, and,
DC Shooter's lenses are works of art...have often admired the silvered ones.
Good luck with the sale.

I would have bought this had I not been deep into the sink hole of too many lenses and bodies to sell. Hope someone look up the MeFoto review in Bhphoto and the like.

Cheers,
Hin
