Say goodbye to shaky images
Looking for a reliable way to take steady photos in every environment? Using a tripod or monopod is one of the fastest and easiest ways to achieve this goal, and can help you improve your photography skills. Mounting your camera on a tripod or monopod eliminates camera shake and helps you take crisp, clear images regardless of lighting conditions or your shooting location.
Other benefits of using a tripod include the ability to “lock” your framing in place between shots and to position your camera in angles that would otherwise be hard to reach, such as overhead or close to ground level. All these features make tripods or monopods a fantastic photography accessory for shooting still images and footage alike, in addition to long-exposure or time-lapse photography.
Not all tripods are created equally
There are plenty of tripods on the market, and each model has its own unique features and benefits. Ultimately, choosing a camera tripod is a matter of preference. If you shoot with heavier equipment such as a DSLR or mirrorless camera, for example, your safest bet is a standard tripod with a payload capacity that’s at least three times the weight of your camera and lens. For fans of smartphone photography, on the other hand, a smaller desktop tripod may suffice.
Meanwhile, lovers of sports and wildlife photography generally prefer monopods, which provide a greater level of support and limit camera blur, even with heavier telephoto lenses. Monopods also tend to be faster to set up than standard 3-legged tripods, meaning you won’t miss a second of the action before you start shooting. Need a tripod that helps you take smooth, stable shots? Try a fluid pan head or 3-way tripod head, which are used by videographers everywhere to take steady continuous footage.
Start your photo shoot out on the right foot with a tripod
No matter what your photography style is and where you tend to shoot, a tripod or monopod can help you improve the quality of your images and video. Investing in a camera tripod or smartphone mount can help you finesse your footage and stills, and can even allow you to develop your general photography stills.
When choosing a tripod, be mindful of factors such as weight, load capacity, size, and materials. If you plan to take your tripod on the go with you, keep an eye out for lightweight models that can be easily folded down to fit in your pocket or camera bag.
