Rollei Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon Tripod Black
The ultra-lightweight carbon tripod with a total weight
(incl. ball head) of only 980 g is especially designed
for travel and cities photographers.
The package includes spikes for stability on the
ground, a 360° panoramic magnesium ball head with
camera quick release plate (Arca Swiss compatible) and
a shoulder strap.
To transport the tripod the legs can be folded by 180°
which reduces the packed dimension to only 33 cm!
Travel tripods for photographers are usually masters of compromise and have to combine low weight and packing volume with the best possible stability. A carbon photo tripod can do that. The Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon combines lightness and stability in a high-quality, innovative travel tripod.
A travel tripod solves three challenges
Rollei has taken on each of these three seemingly contradictory requirements once again: The Rollei Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon travel tripod literally turns the conventional design of tripods upside down - the fourfold extendable tripod legs can be swivelled 180 degrees and allow an amazingly small packing length of only 33 cm. In combination with the highly stable and lightweight high-tech material carbon, the total weight of the Compact Traveler No. 1 is less than 1 kilogram. Even professional travel photographers do not need to reserve more than 980 g in their luggage. The carbon of the Rollei travel tripod is also responsible for the impressive load capacity of 8 kg, which corresponds to an own weight/load ratio of 1/8! Due to the swivelling tripod legs, even macro shots in the ground area are possible, which would otherwise require additional equipment.
The lightweight that doesn't show its power
The 360° panoramic ball head of the Rollei Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon takes up even professional SLR housings with super telephoto lenses and other accessories via the standardised and Arca Swiss compatible quick-release plate and allows quick motif changes. Stable spikes with gentle end caps guarantee a firm stand on any surface, a freely rotating hook on the center column further increases stability when you attach your photo bag or any weight to it.
Directly ready to travel and fully equipped
The tripod legs are quickly extended to a maximum height of 142 cm with the quick-release clamp fitting. For particularly tricky situations, the Rollei Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon Traveler Tripod can also be used as a monopod, a separate bag is of course included in the scope of delivery. In addition, you will receive a wide, shoulder-friendly carrying strap, all the necessary tools and a bag that can also be carried comfortably as a backpack.
Tested and awarded in the category Tripods
The magazine Chip has already tested the compact travel tripod. The professional and independent test was carried out in the tripod category. The Rollei Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon has thus prevailed against high-priced tripod competitors with the grade GUT. The high stability despite the very light weight was especially praised. The measured values showed a stability of 98 % in wind and retracted center column. When the centre column is fully extended and the influence of the wind is present, the measured value drops to 87%. Nevertheless a sensational value for the 980 gram light travel tripod.
The Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon is proud of the result of 92 points for stability. The Compact Traveler No. 1 Carbon also scored more than satisfactorily with the overall rating of 82.1% for GUT as a city, nature and travel tripod. It is also included in the best list of all tripods in 36th place. A real top performance for a travel tripod.
