I'll check their website. There is a useful "Help me choose" system. I'm gonna try it and see which model they say fits my needs

You should be Ok. The backpacker is more portable, but the Roadtrip has a built-in monopod, which is nice for someone like yourself that doesn't like to carry a tripod. I have used it with the LAE-A2 with 5T, so it should be an issue with the A7. The plate is very small but solid. Good luck.

The roadtrip is quite nice. But for the price difference (aluminium version), I'm trying to decide whether I should just go for the globetrotter model. It's still small but seems to have a better plate.

What would you say?
