Architecture of MeFoto BackPacker Tripod

MeFoto BackPacker is a portable and stylish tripod, best suitable to use with mirrorless or compact cameras.

  • When folded, it only weights 2.6 lb (1.18kg) and 12.6 inch (32cm).
  • When opened, it’s in 51.2 inch (1.3m) maximum height and 8.8 lb (4kg) maximum load

Not too large and not too slim – suitable for walk-around using. That’s why it’s called BackPacker.

The tripod series comes with 12 color options, here we use the red version for demonstration.
