If you are serious about photography than a camera tripod is an absolute necessity. Although they are not always pleasant to carry around, they are great for still and timed photographs, as well as nature shots, macro-photography, long exposure shots, slow shutter speeds, and low light situations.
If you are looking to buy a new Camera tripod for your digital camera than there are several things you may want to consider. Throughout this article we will discuss what these things are, so that you can ensure you are getting the best tripod for your camera!
When buying a tripod, the first thing you should consider is its stability. Make sure you test the tripod before buying it. Apply a little pressure to the top of the tripod and raise it to its full height. You may need to return the tripod if it wobbles when you apply pressure. To avoid any unwanted accidents when you use your tripod to take photos, make sure it is sturdy and durable.
You will need to make sure your tripod is stable enough to support the weight of your camera. There may be tripods that are too heavy for larger SLR cameras. It is recommended that larger cameras be mounted on tripods made of heavy materials, and not plastics, to support the weight of the camera and its equipment.
