When I bought a new Tamron 70-300mm VC lens, the Dolica could no longer hold the setup. When shooting pictures of the moon, I could see the image dropping from the center of the viewfinder. No matter how tight I turned the knobs.
So I went back to the camera store and compared various tripods. Originally I wanted a Manfrotto that was $280. But then Amazon offered a promotion. With the purchase of selected Mefoto tripods, there would be a $50 voucher for a future camera/lens purchase. So that cinched the deal for me to buy this tripod.
I am very pleased with it. It is much heavier than the Dolica I had. It is also taller. I am short, 5'2" so generally, I don't even have to unlock the last set of legs on the tripod. It's plenty tall with the center column raised up. So if you are a tall person, this could be a good tripod for you.
It has an extra dial that allows you to tighten the head while still being able to move it some and then you tighten down the position with the main dial. My other tripod did not have that feature.
When I mounted my lens to this tripod, it did a great job of holding the position. I did not withness my image slipping in the viewfinder.
For the life of me, I cannot seem to get it to fold up completely and sit in the bag properly. What is the trick???
- More substantial build quality than the RoadTrip
- Bigger ball head for larger cameras
- Ball head is very smooth and strong
- Slightly taller than the RoadTrip
- Stronger legs
- Reliable leg locking mechanisms
- Compact design
- Comes with a carrying case
- Comes with attachable ground spikes
- Heavy for it's overall size (but they do offer a Carbon Fiber option)
- Locking mechanisms don't have the best weather sealing (allows sand and other elements to get inside)
- Not the cheapest option (but it's worth it really)
Overall, I love this tripod. It's very compact for how big it can get and fits right on the side of my LowePro Whistler 450 AW. I abuse my tripods quite a bit as an outdoor/adventure photographer, and it's not the most common thing where you get a very reliable tripod to work with. I've dropped it on rocks, in water and stuck it in sand, and it still continues to perform. Since the Globetrotter doesn't have much in the way of weather sealing around the locking mechanisms, I do have to take it apart every once in a while to clean the sand out, but most tripods require that anyways. For the $246 I paid for the Globetrotter, I feel as though it's money well spent. Would definitely continue to purchase MeFOTO products and recommend to friends.
The GT folds up pretty small considering its extended height and I've carried it on a photo backpack. It weighs a bit more than my last hiking tripod but, though I use it that way, I know it's not meant to be a backpacker. The change over to the monopod is a breeze and, with the ball head on it, you can shoot supported portrait mode on a monopod. Pretty cool. To demonstrate how well I like it, I'm going to also get the Mefoto hiking version as well. Besides all the great features and quality build, in the Titanium that I got, it just plain looks good too.
