BackPacker Classic

The MeFOTO BackPacker Classic is a super compact travel tripod that folds up inversely and fits inside most backpacks and suitcases. It’s available in several colors and can be used for many different style cameras such as: point and shoot, smartphones and mirrorless.

Accurate panoramas can be easily orchestrated using the graduated panning scale for accurate image alignment.

For an extra measure of flexibility, tripod legs can be independently locked into place at two different angles to enable shooting in cramped quarters, on irregular surface areas, or at ground level.

Recessed Center-Column Hook

A spring loaded recessed hook, located in the bottom of the center-column, allows you to hang additional weight from the tripod’s center of gravity for increased stability.
