For the photo-happy hobbyist, our most lightweight and compact tripod yet!


The MeFOTO BackPacker Air is Mefoto's most lightweight and compact tripod yet. Ideal for smartphones, compact cameras, action cameras and small mirrorless cameras.

Super Fast Setup

Instant gratification is the name of the game with the new HyperLock leg lock System. Mefoto's mission is simple: make setting up your tripod or monopod faster than ever while making it lighter, smaller and more stable.


Removable telescoping center column converts to a Selfie Stick with included smartphone holder and a Bluetooth remote so you can capture your unique and colorful personality.


Less is more is Mefoto's philosophy. Less weight, less stress, more stability, more fun!

and Portable

Reverse folding legs and compact size make it easy to fit in even the smallest of bags. It's the go-anywhere tripod for your go-anywhere lifestyle!

Stable and Sturdy

Flexibility is good when life throws you curve balls, but when it comes to tripods – rigidity is king! The innovative HyperLock leg lock, combined with super strong materials makes for a rock solid tripod you can depend on in any situation.

Arca-Swiss Compatible

While Mefoto is setting a new standard for speed and compactness, the want to ensure industry compatibility where it counts.

Hint: Add an extra plate in a different color to make your tripod uniquely yours
