Showing 1-10 of 500
Very handy to have in your kit

Excerpt: This is a nice little tripod to have with you when you want to carry as little as possible, but still want the option of some basic stabilization. I use this when I'm walking around with my Fuji XT-10, one extra lens and maybe a remote.
Pros: Flexibility, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: This is a cute idea but of limited practicality in the field. Yes, it will grip things that you could just as easily lean against, maybe with a piece of clothing to cushion the camera, so then who needs it?
Pros: Folds Small, Inexpensive, Lightweight
Cons: Clumsy Set Uptake Down, Cumbersome, Unstable, Weak Construction
Excerpt: ... oh that's right, I just had lousy shaky footage.Two seconds after removing it from the package, I broke one of the legs in half but it popped back together. That's probably the result of my incredible hulk strength though. I can topple buildings just by leaning against them.
Beefy constuction designed for DSLRs - may tip if overloaded

Excerpt: I have a number of Joby Gorilla Pods and this is the first one for me designed for DSLR cameras. That spirit level comes in very handy when doing photos, like landscapes, groups, and architecture where a level horizon is essential.
Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
Excerpt: Gotta love this little guy for what it is. A mighty little thing. Works great for APS-C cameras and shorter lens and FX cameras and small lenses. This is not going to support a pro body with a 70-200. Its limit is a prosumer body with a 70-300, maybe a 70-200.
