Over the past couple of months, Steve Huff has reviewed the MeFOTO DayTrip, BackPacker, and RoadTrip.  Despite openly admitting that he is not generally a huge fan of tripods for his photography due to the hassle of lugging them around, he loved ours!

Steve instantly fell in love the with MeFOTO DayTrip upon his first encounter and immediately wanted to learn more about these “small and tiny wonders” as he liked to call them.  But, what caused this immediate attraction?  He fell for the design, colors, and “teeny” size/ease of use.  The size of the DayTrip allows you to take it with you anywhere you go.  For more product specifications, please click here.

Overall, Steve thought all three tripods are very nice, very well made, and VERY affordable tripods that are designed extremely well, lightweight, easy to carry, and easy to work with.  He highly recommends them.

Don’t forget to participate in the Steve's MeFOTO Tripod giveaway.  Read to the end of Steve's review for a chance to win a MeFOTO DayTrip.

Converting Your MeFOTO Tripod into a Monopod

In our opinion, one of the RoadTrip and GlobeTrotter's best (of many) features is its ability to be converted into a monopod. When you purchase either model, you're pretty much buying two products for the price of one. ..not a bad deal at all.

Thanks to our genius product designers, converting the tripod to a monopod (without tools mind you) is as easy as it gets. But just in case you have questions on how to do it, here is a quick and detailed guide. If there's anything you believe we've missed or would like clarification on, drop us a line in the comments section below.

 **Please note, not all MeFOTO tripods convert to monopods, only the GlobeTrotter and RoadTrip.

 

Here is the GlobeTrotter in tripod format. You can convert both the GlobeTrotter and RoadTrip into monopods. 

Begin by grabbing the tripod leg with the foam grip and rotate it to the left to loosen it. You will notice the digram at the top letting you know which direction to turn the leg in to loosen or tighten it.

Unscrew the tripod leg all the way.

Now that you have completely detached the leg, put it down and save it for later. This is the first piece of the monopod.

Next you need to remove the center column. This is going to be the second piece of the monopod. Begin by unscrewing the recessed hook knob on the center column.

Unscrew the recessed hook knob completely. Save the knob in a safe place since you will need it once you put the tripod back together.

Loosen the knob on the center column.

Slide the center column out. This is the top part of your monopod.

Here is what the GlobeTrotter looks like disassembled.

Take the foam tripod leg and center column with ball head attached. These are the two pieces you will screw together to make the monopod.

Screw the tripod leg into the center colum.

Congrats! You now have a fully functional monopod!
