Item description

Mantona DSLM Travel Evolution 224 - the lightweight travel tripod with flip-lock closures
Today, many travel tripods have twist locks - but in practical use in particular, lock levers offer indisputable advantages. The Flip-Locks of the tripod legs used with this tripod, in combination with the one-piece centre column extension, allow a particularly fast and safe setting up of the tripod.
With a weight of only 1.32 kg and a maximum height of 140 cm, a 6 kg load capacity, a high-quality Arca-Swiss compatible panoramic ball head and the monopod function, the DSLM Travel Evolution 224 tripod has everything you need. This tripod becomes a true specialist for macro photography thanks to its additional short centre column and the reverse function thanks to the reversible centre column.
Beautifully designed in high-quality black/grey optics and equipped with particularly pleasant operating elements, the Mantona DSLM Travel Evolution 224 is the affordable travel tripod recommendation for all photographers who prefer a tripod with lever locks.

A bestseller, consequently being improved
With the Mantona DSLM Travel Evolution series you can benefit from our many years of experience with photo tripods. The DSLM Travel Evolution 224 is a further development of the highly successful Mantona DSLM Travel photo tripod series. During the further development of this tripod, numerous innovations and improvements have been implemented for you. This has made the Mantona DSLM Travel Evolution 224 tripod an exceptionally interesting travel tripod with special qualities.

Low weight, easy and fast operation due to Flip-Locks
The flip-lock locking levers make the construction and positioning of this photo tripod a pleasure. The Flip-Locks are working easily, quickly and securely. The locks can be opened or locked with a flick of the wrist. Also the sometimes annoying re-checking and readjustment as with twist locks is no longer necessary.
The DSLM Travel Evolution 224 travel tripod has only 4 leg segments. This provides increased stability and extremely easy handling for this travel tripod. In combination with the one-piece center column construction you get a very comfortable and practical travel tripod with the simplest operability.
The DSLM Travel Evolution 224 tripod weighs only 1.32 kg and has a packing size of only 40 cm. The 3 tripod legs made of a high-strength aluminium alloy can be folded by 180°. So it fits in every bag and in every backpack, and therefore is ideally suited for city trips or long hikes.
The leg angles can be easily and comfortably adjusted in three steps thanks to the pleasant feel of the leg angle fasteners and have a smooth spring mechanism.

Easy handling and safe stand
The DSLM Travel Evolution 224 can be extended to a height of up to 140 cm, providing a comfortable working height. The tripod has a load capacity of 6 kg and is therefore suitable for light to medium-heavy equipment such as DSLR, DSLM and CSC system cameras.
Stability is a sensitive issue for many lightweight travel tripods. With the DSLM Travel Evolution 224, despite its low weight, special attention was paid to a high stability in daily use. Both the materials used and the well thought-out construction of the individual components are the basis for the high stability of this travel tripod. In adverse weather conditions you can additionally stabilize the tripod thanks to the built-in load hook. The foam handles on all three tripod legs help against clammy fingers. Thus, the DSLM Travel Evolution 224 tripod is optimally prepared for use in difficult external conditions.

Versatile and especially richly equipped
The Mantona DSLM Travel Evolution 224 offers you a lot that you have to do without on other tripods. For example, one tripod leg can be unscrewed and converted into a 141 cm monopod without tools. Ideal, for example, for use in sports photography or if the location does not permit use as a tripod.
Thanks to the separate, second centre column, the DSLM Travel Evolution 224 becomes a true macro professional. The working height can be reduced to 8 cm with and 15.5 cm without ball head. Of course, the centre column can also be removed and brought into the reverse position. So you are optimally equipped for macro photography close to the ground.

Panorama ball head with Arca-Swiss compatible quick-change system
With the DSLM Travel Evolution 224, we placed great emphasis on the stability and equipment of the tripod head. A tripod with an inferior ball head is often the cause of annoying camera shake in your shots. The built-in ball head offers not only a high load capacity of maximum 8 kg, but also scores with a very pleasant operation. The Arca-Swiss compatible quick-release plate allows your equipment to be mounted quickly and easily on the ball head. When aligning your camera, the drop notch and a total of 3 spirit levels on the ball head are very helpful. The Quick-Lock system also ensures particularly fast operation.
Especially the panorama swivel function of the ball head is poorly solved with many travel tripods. In contrast to many other tripods, the ball head built into the DSLM Travel Evolution 224 has a separate control button for the panorama function. This allows you to pan the DSLM Travel Evolution 224 without having to release the main lock of the ball head to rotate the ball. This makes clean panorama shots child's play.

Full scope of delivery as standard
In addition to the tripod including ball head and quick-release plate, the scope of delivery includes a separate, short centre column, several hexagon socket wrenches and a padded carrying bag. The high-quality carrying bag has a pleasantly thick padding, a shoulder strap and a specially padded bag bottom to protect your tripod.
