Just about five years after the launch of the first edition of the Punks Corey model, 3 Legged Thing has announced the Corey 2.0 tripod. They’ve also brought out the updated Airhed Neo 2 ball head as a companion to this. If you’re an avid follower of the camera accessories industry, you’ll know that 3 Legged Thing is unique. When it comes to colors and design, they are unconventional and catchy. Corey 2.0 sticks to the core principles of the company – color, innovation, concept.Continue reading…
Here is a tool which looks similar to something I reviewed recently. It is a tabletop tripod or handheld support by Cullman. Made in Germany the Magnesit Copter with the Cross CB2.7 ball head is magnificent. It is totally a different Kaempfer (“kaempfer” being German for “fighter” or “champion”). The thing is, this little tripod surprised me. After shooting with it, working with it in the field I was slightly amazed. In my mind, a small tabletop tripod should be ultra-portable, simple, and functional. This one is all of that.
So why is it such a remarkable piece of equipment? Let’s see why.
This is a clever little desktop tripod. The UltraPod II, from Industrial Revolution, was not sent to me by a vendor to test; it was purchased by accident. This little tripod was a pleasant surprise. It’s built to hold cameras like the Nikon D7000 or the Canon 60D this is a well designed tool. Small, nimble, and light, the UltraPod II is a fine American made product. When you have to shoot a stable image, but don’t have room for a full size tripod, this is a product to keep in mind
Let’s face it, nobody likes to lug around a tripod. Yes, they provide stable shooting platforms but they also add extra weight and take up valuable space that not all photographers are willing to spare. You can opt for a compact, ultralight carbon fiber tripod, but that usually results in an ultralight wallet. The other option is buying an affordable, “traditional sized” tripod but then you add at least 8 lbs. to your load. Not surprisingly, most people opt for the second option which is why tripods are often left at home. So what do you do? Enter the Benro Travel Angel.
