XL Carbon City Traveler Travel Stand in titanium - maximum load: 8 kilos
Often the most beautiful moments & subjects on an outdoor tour or a city trip are those that were over as quickly as they came. By the time the stand is up, everything is already over. Or you would like to work with long exposure, for example for architectural shots, which is hardly possible freehand without vibrations and thus the loss of image definition. The same applies to panorama photographs e.g. with 360-degree cameras. Sharp and vibration-free pictures & videos are indispensable especially for atmospheric landscape photographs and special photography modes such as macro, wildlife and sport photography and time-lapse & panorama shoots.
The best travel stand for travel and landscape photography is thus not only of a small packed size and light in its own weight, but also can be assembled and disassembled quickly and is flexible, simple and nevertheless smart in its functionality.

Nevertheless stability is guaranteed and it is also supported by non-skid rubber feet and the option of attaching a counterweight to the central column hook.

Ideal, flexible functionality for travel and landscape photographers
The design of our City Traveler travel stands made from carbon is distinctive due to the following characteristics:
- ease of transport
- flexibility in use
- a capacity for quick assembly on the spur of the moment
But that is not all. In addition, their functionality is impressive on all levels - in the truest sense of the word. The maximum working height is 156 cm despite the packed size of only 42 cm. However, owing to the reversible, divisible central column, taking photographs close to the ground at the same time is possible and thus micro and macro photography. Therefore, in the meantime, the ball-shaped head included in the scope of delivery comes with a panorama function and can also be aligned at all possible angles of rotation and inclination.
The camera is attached by means of a quick release plate. The camera is screwed onto this and then the quick release plate is attached to the City Traveler XL Travel Stand. So, for example, you can prepare different cameras on several plates and in a few seconds you can switch from model to model and quickly change from the stand to freehand photography mode at the same time.
Long exposure & panorama photographs with a travel stand
With a City Traveler travel stand very long exposure times are possible without adverse effects on image definition. Starting from an exposure time of 1/60 seconds freehand mode is no longer possible. In the case of photographs of flowing water with a velvety smooth effect or long exposure in sunshine the use of a neutral density filter (ND filter) is extremely impressive.
However, CPL filters make particularly high-contrast and impressive landscape photographs possible, by filtering polarized light and intensifying basic colours in the process. They intensify the green of grasses and trees, for example, by swallowing reflected blue light from the sky. In addition, they make pictures that are free from reflections and mirror images possible. They filter reflections and mirror images of non-metallic surfaces such as glass or plastic.
Therefore it is ideally suitable for travel photography on city tours. Thanks to the panorama function, the ball-shaped head included in the scope of delivery facilitates particularly beautiful photographs of the landscape & environment of your travel destination - from all angles of rotation and inclination.
