Mini Traveler at Photokina 2018
The world’s most compact and lightweight professional table tripod.
The 2018 edition of Photokina, the most important international exhibition dedicated to the world of photography, has just ended. Among the many expected innovations, the visitors talked a lot about the new Mini Traveler, designed by MM Design for the premium brand Gitzo. The Gitzo Mini Traveler is especially dedicated to professional photographers and promising amateurs who use mirrorless cameras or DSLR cameras with small lenses.
Some of the highlights of the new tripod design were compactness, lightness and stability. Thanks the use of carbon fiber and particulary solutions for the movement of legs and head, Mini Traveler is the world’s most compact and lightweight professional table tripod. The legs with rubber feet, feature a pull-and-fix system that allows for two different leg angles for each leg.
One of the design elements that most characterizes Mini Traveler is the solution adopted for fixing the head: there’s a detachable ball head with no visible ball or pan locks. Instead, a gear lock found at the bottom of the head is used to control all movements. Each detail of the Mini Traveler revolves around lightweight and high-quality materials, with accurate assembling and fine manual control. An excellent example of a mix of industrial production and craftsmanship.
