Item description

With the tripod Traveller Rock by walimex, you are particularly well-equipped for landscape, time lapse and other long-term exposures. The versatile tripod is ideal especially for long hikes or walks.

Versatile tripod and monopod in one
The tripod Traveller Rock by walimex is a versatile aluminum tripod which is particularly well-suited for hikes and walks. The smooth-running ball head with pistol grip can be operated with one hand only and once loosened it can be moved in all axes. That way one hand is still free when operating the pistol grip. It is also very well-suited for smaller hands. The head can be swapped out if required. Therefore any head, whether ball head or pan head, with a 1/4 inch connection can be used. This gives you more flexibility and you can realize several fields of use with one tripod only. The center column of the tripod can be removed and used as a monopod. This is useful for shots with long lenses and for slower shutter times. Additionally, the monopod is ideal for tracking moving objects, e.g. in sports photography. The rotatable quick-release plate allows a use according to your wishes and is equally well-suited for right- and left-handed people.

User-friendly and secure construction
A 3-way bubble level on the pistol grip and a bubble level on the tripod allow an exact leveling also independently of the tripod head used. That way the tripod is also ideally suited for panorama shots in connection with a nodal point adapter. The quick-release plate is made of metal, very solid and extremely sturdy so that there is hardly and wear and tear and a long life-time is guaranteed. With a locking lever and a locking mechanism an accidental loosening of the camera is prevented. That way it is protected from falling. The grips of the tripod are padded with foam and ensure a good grip and protect your hands from the cold. This is optimal for both summer and winter, as a slipping and cold tripod legs are prevented. The foam padding is also convenient for carrying the tripod on your shoulder, as it allows you to lay the tripod comfortably on your shoulder. The lockable spider makes it possible to fixate the leg angles and reproducibility is easier to realize. The spider increases the stability of the tripod substantially. On the hook of the center column, weights for stabilization can be attached, e.g. a sand bag or the camera bag. That way the tripod stands more stably and the center of gravity of the camera-lens combination is shifted. A possible overturning of the tripod is prevented.

Comfortable transport
Due to the 3 leg segments, a quick setup and disassembly is possible and the tripod fits on most camera bags and backpacks. A carrying handle on the center column allows you to comfortably carry the tripod on just one point. Of course a padded transport bag for protecting the tripod from being damaged and for higher wearing comfort is included. The carrying strap of the bag is elastic and padded with neoprene, which prevents it from slipping and ensures a better grip. Additionally the padding prevents pressure marks on the body, which makes the tripod ideal for longer hikes as well.
