TRIPOD for Camera

Photographers with heavy telephoto lens attachments use a tripod to stabilise their camera to get sharp images. Tripods are used for both still and motion photography to prevent camera movement. They are necessary when slow-speed exposures are being made, or when telephoto lenses are used, as any camera movement while the shutter is open will produce a blurred image. In the same vein, they reduce camera shake, and thus are instrumental in achieving maximum sharpness. A tripod is also helpful in achieving precise framing of the image, or when more than one image is being made of the same scene, for example when bracketing the exposure. Use of a tripod may also allow for a more thoughtful approach to photography. For all of these reasons a tripod of some sort is often necessary for professional photography as well as certain video uses.

Joby GP1-E1EN Gorillapod Flexible Tripod (Grey) review

I still can’t believe that this thing is real! And I’m blown away by the quality of the tripod.

The ‘legs’ are stiff enought that it doesn’t fall out of shape as it holds the camera. Each little grey ring around the ball-like pieces are rubberized to help it grip onto objects. I have been able to mount my Canon SD600 and hold one ‘foot’ of the tripod while it remains in the shape I bent it into. The leg didn’t change shape or sag at all.

I’ve had it on top of my LCD, hung it from a doorway, sitting on top of a lamp… I think the legs are long enough and the feet are ‘grippy’ enough to mount it to the side of a bowling ball!

The clip on top lets you mount and dismount the camera quite easily and without hassle. The only problem I could see is that with the mounting clip attached to the camera I can’t put the camera in the fitted Canon carrying case that I have for the SD600. Well, it fits with it on, but very snug.

I can’t stress how much I love this little tripod!! Get one; you won’t be disappointed!
