The Mark II generation of the Rollei Lion Rock Outdoor tripods, which are particularly popular with photo professionals and discerning hobby photographers, offers the usual premium quality and useful improvements. This proven high-end product line has now been supplemented with three models that have been specially developed for the requirements of professional travel photographers. The three new Rollei Lion Rock Travelers have the unquestionable quality of materials and workmanship and the detail optimization of the Mark II line, but they convince frequent flyers in particular with their surprisingly low weight. You will look forward to every gram saved in development and production during your next long-distance flight check-in, but also during the strenuous walk to the remote outdoor location.
The Traveler M carries ten times its own weight
With a weight of only 1500 g including professional ball head and Arca-Swiss quick-release plate, the new Rollei Lion Rock Traveler M travel tripod holds a full 15 kg of usable weight steadfastly aimed at the desired subject and easily withstands the worst weather and environmental conditions. The 4 leg segments and the center column can be extended to a maximum of 154 cm, the preferred working height is still 127.7 cm, the center column retracted for more stability. The 26.5 cm long and 2.5 cm wide center column can be split in order to be able to carry the full professional load even with macro shots close to the ground. The tripod legs consist of 11 layers of perfectly interwoven carbon layers of the best quality, which compensate for all vertical forces with an astonishingly low material weight. Even in tough continuous use, carbon withstands aggressive salt water, the finest desert sand, extreme heat and cold, the leg segments also have double inner seals to permanently prevent the penetration of sand or salt particles.en.
Steel-hard special spikes that claw into the ground at an ideal 90 anglen
The lower segments of the tripod legs have been provided with a practice-oriented scaling, which enables you to easily adjust your new Rollei Lion Rock Traveler M travel tripod. Specially shaped steel spikes ensure that the extended legs hit the ground at an ideal 90 angle, even in the lowest tripod position, so that you can stand absolutely immovably on freezing cold glacier ice. Thanks to the all-round improved quick-release fasteners, the segments can be locked and released in no time. You use the spirit level on the stable tripod shoulder for the exact alignment of your camera, with the friction ball head you can fix camera or video equipment weighing up to 15 kg in a bombproof manner or rotate it around its own axis as smoothly as butter..
