This lightweight travel tripod is the optimal combination of portability, solidity, easy set-up and operation.

α Plate

The plate is designed to match Sony α7 (series II and up) and Sony α9 camera bodies, to ensure perfect grip, even in the most angled camera shots. The front jut of the plate physically prevents any play both on tilt and rotational movements, always keeping the camera stuck to the head plate. The result is impressive camera stability, which takes image sharpness to the highest level. The plate is also fully compatible with the world’s most widespread standard head attachments: Manfrotto RC2 and Arca-swiss style.

With this aluminium plate fixed to the camera, all Manfrotto heads and almost all tripod heads on the market featuring Arca-style attachments can be set up rapidly and effortlessly, without disassembling components.

QPL Travel Lever Lock

QPL Travel lever, a brand-new system developed by Manfrotto brings the full locking power of the QPL lever on professional Manfrotto tripods like the 190 & 055 to a more lightweight version that’s ideal for travel. The new on-off mechanism makes set up and adjustment easy and secure, providing full stability in all configurations when the tripod is open.

Manfrotto Easy Link

The spider/tripod-top on this innovative model also provides an Easy Link, just like Manfrotto’s professional 190 & 055 tripods. This allows photographers to enhance their creativity by adding accessories that make their shot unique and unforgettable. Photographers who love adding lights or reflectors can now take amazing outdoor shots that were previously only achievable with heavy accessorised tripods.


Includes Manfrotto 494 Aluminium Centre Ball Head

The tripod is kitted out with Manfrotto’s Advanced 494 aluminium Centre ball head, a small yet powerful and intuitive head that enables quick and precise camera movement. The 494 Centre ball head features three independent controls: a main knob for managing the sphere lock, an integrated friction control knob that adjusts the ball tension so that equipment weight is always perfectly balanced and shots framed effortlessly; an independent panoramic knob that keeps the horizon flat and moves the camera horizontally, enabling astonishing landscape shots.
