Tripod-maker MeFOTO has launched a new sister company called MeVIDEO, which will specialise on making travel video tripods.
MeVIDEO has launched its first video tripod, the GlobeTrotter, via a Kickstarter campaign, which comes in aluminium or carbon fibre. The MeVIDEO GlobeTrotter will also offer a maximum payload of 4kg, along with a new levelling head design.
Other features include MeFoto’s reverse folding legs that make it more compact for travel, independent locking positions on the legs and a split/centre column.
Integrated, stainless steel spikes can be expanded or retracted into the rubber feet for greater stability on any surface.
The MeVIDEO also converts to a monopod by unscrewing the centre column and combining it with the padded leg.
The early bird MeVIDEO GlobeTrotter price tag on Kickstarter is $349 for the aluminium version, and $499 for the carbon fibre model.
The MeVIDEO GlobeTrotter’s price tag upon its release is expected to be $499 for the aluminium version and $699 for the carbon fibre model.
