3 tips when buying a tripod

There are many different types of tripods, varying in weight from just a few hundred grams to several kilograms. So, it's important to consider what you need. Do you value portability, or do you require stability even in windy conditions?

If you're after a light but sturdy tripod, carbon fibre tripods are a great choice, but they can be more expensive than aluminium ones. An aluminium tripod is heavier and more durable, but it isn't as easy to move around.

It's also important to choose a tripod that can support the weight of your camera and lenses. Tripod specifications indicate the maximum weight capacity of the tripod.

Choose a tripod that is easy to transport. Check how it folds and how much space it takes up, making it easy to transport. If the tripod has a strap or loop that makes it more comfortable to carry, and if it comes with a bag, it may be worth paying extra for.

When choosing a tripod, think about your shooting needs to find the perfect fit. Let's explore a few different types:

  • If you need a portable option that's easy to pack, a clamp mount is perfect. It can be attached to a chair, fence, or table edge, and fits snugly in a small camera bag. You can also use a table stand to attach both a mobile phone and a small system camera, making it a great choice for travel.

  • When space is limited, a one-legged stand, also known as a monopod, is ideal. This type of tripod is perfect for sporting events and performances.

To get the most out of your tripod, look for these 3 features:

  • A tripod with a ball joint allows you to effortlessly adjust the camera's direction.

  • Foldable legs make it easy to place the tripod in slanted areas, such as a slope or stairs.

  • A reversible centre column allows you to mount the camera so that it hangs under the tripod, enabling you to take really low shots. It’s a good choice for those who like to take photos in macro mode. If macro photography excites you, consider these tips to take your shots to the next level.
