Manfrotto Element Small Traveler Tripod Overview

Compact and Lightweight

The Manfrotto Element Small in black is a super-compact aluminium travel tripod, perfect for DSLRs, mirrorless and compact cameras. It's lightweight and easy to transport, making it ideal for on-the-go photography.

Featuring a fold-up, 5-section traveler design, the Element Small is capable of collapsing down to just 32cm, making it ideal for storage in a suitcase or backpack. But don't let its compact size fool you, this tripod is capable of reaching a maximum height of 143cm, a minimum working height of 36.06cm, and can support up to 5.98 kg while weighing just 1.13 kg.

With a focus on special features and ease of use, the Element Small series features a few special design features that make it a versatile accessory for any image maker. First, the tripod utilizes rubber-coated twist locks which help to maintain an overall slim profile and allow for quick set-up and break down. Second, the Element features a two section center column which gives you versatility when choosing a working height, especially when vibration is a major concern. Third, each leg features three independent leg positions which are engaged by a spring-loaded lock, allowing you to position each leg separately on uneven terrain.

Additionally, the Element Small includes a dual-lock, Arca-type compatible ball head. The dual-lock design utilizes a large, primary knob for controlling the movement of the ball and a second smaller knob for engaging the 360° independent pan. The head also features a vertical notch for 90° tilts, a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, and degree markings on the panning base.
