I have been looking for a packable professional tripod for a long time, the Globetrotter weighting in a 3.7 lbs and packing up small enough to put in my Tenba backpack really fits my needs perfectly. I recently spent 3 weeks Hiking in the Swiss Alps and I have nothing but good things to say about this light weight sturdy tripod. I use the Lumix GH3 with a battery grip and with a 26.4 lb load max this tripod can also support my mini crane. Everything about this feels like its made very well! The tripod also breaks down into a convenient mono pod that unscrews off one of the legs, very nice large threads and easy to screw off and more importantly, extremely well made and sturdy. I do a lot of hiking so I went with the Carbon for weight, the tripod collapses down into 16.1" and fully extended up to 64.2". This tripod is for and photographer or videographer (Hybrid even better) thats looking for a light weight, sturdy, portable and professional tripod. I would recommend this to any beginner or professional looking to cover all there basis, it has taken me over 15 different tripods to find this DO IT ALL product.
