The Compact Traveler Star S3- a beginner’s dream
The Rollei Compact Traveler Star S3 tripod is an entry-level stand for the photography enthusiast that doesn’t go for second-best. As beginner tripods go, this is the most eye-catching and practical in the Rollei range. It features a brilliant rotating mechanism operated manually and displaying a spirit level for precise orientation. The handle hides an Allen key in a secret compartment, which saves you the trouble of carrying extra equipment. Weighing little over 1kg, ball head included, the sturdy Compact Traveler S3 will support the weight of a DSLR camera no heavier than 2.5 kg. But while it is classified as a tripod for beginners, the Compact Traveler S3 has a few tricks up its sleeve.
The Compact Traveler S3 is a tripod for beginners, but discerning ones
Just because you’re a beginner doesn’t mean you should settle for anything less than the best. With the Compact Traveler S3 tripod for beginners, you get your money’s worth. The Compact Traveler S3 features a tripod hook where stabilizing counterweights could be suspended to balance its weight even on inclined surfaces. The anodized aluminium legs give you solid, sturdy support for your valuable DSLR. Its rubber feet are slip-resistant, providing yet more stability. The central column also rotates, allowing you to mount your camera underneath for macro shots at awkward angles. Pan, lock, and tilt your camera using the MHG-4 ball head provided and wrap up in a jiffy thanks to the quick release plate.
A bargain by all accounts
When your Rollei Compact Traveler S3 accompanies you on your photo sessions, all other equipment becomes redundant, save for the DSLR, of course. With a tripod bag by your side, holding your Compact Traveler S3, ball head and plate safe, all you need is an interesting subject. Rollei takes care of everything else for you, as it has been for little less than a century.
