What Exactly Does a Tripod Do, Anyway? – Free Quick Guide

A tripod is typically the second or third major purchase for photographers.

Many types of photography simply cannot be accomplished without one.

There are as many tripods out there in the marketplace as camera bodies, so it can be challenging to choose one.

Here is what he covers:

  • Tripods in General
  • Don’t buy cheap
  • Weight (carbon fiber vs. aluminum)
  • Convenience
  • Height
  • Center columns
  • Friction vs. crank
  • Low columns (reversible)
