Our friends at Peak Design have re-imagined the perfect travel tripod, and it’s currently available on Kickstarter at a nice discount.
They spent 4 years developing the tripod, with 5 key features that put them in a class of their own – size, speed, ease, phone-friendly, versatile.
Here’s what they have to say on their Kickstarter page:
The Travel Tripod takes up half the volume of a traditional travel tripod. We also eliminated bulky, protruding knobs. The result? Every water bottle pocket on your bag is now also a tripod pocket, and you’re carrying a full sized tripod with professional capabilities.
With traditional travel tripods, slow setup may mean a missed shot. Not with the Peak Design Travel Tripod. We designed strong, easy-to-use leg cam levers that can be operated together (no tedious twist locks!). With our architecture there’s no need for the legs to flip up/down when packing and unpacking. And, we topped it off with lightning-fast camera quick-attachment/release.
EASY TO USE
No more guessing which knob to turn or how far to turn it: a single and precision-engineered adjustment ring gives total articulation. Our locking ring gives you further stability and vibration reduction. But even without it, your camera is locked securely in place. The unique head design gives you greater range of articulation, and incorporates 3 portrait mode cutouts instead of 1.
There’s a reason that phones are already the most used cameras in the history of cameras: mobile devices take incredible pictures, they’re only getting better, and you always have it with you. That’s why we gave the Travel Tripod a brilliant, stowable, universal mobile mount hidden in the center column
It takes just seconds to switch to Inverted Mode, perfect for macro or product photography. Or, with a few turns of the included hex wrench, you can reconfigure into Low Mode. The Travel Tripod goes lower than any other tripod in its class, enabling unmatched ground perspective shots.
