All About Micro-Tripods

The Benefits of Micro Tripods

Everyone wants the perfect shot. But what if it’s from a tree branch, or above a door? Micro-tripods give you the flexibility to place a camera wherever you need it, without the limitations of a standard tripod. Micro-tripods also support a wide range of cameras from GoPros to smartphones to DSLRs, providing a great mounting solution no matter what type of camera you’ve got on hand. In the newest Video Gear Weekly, Rich and I will demonstrate situations where a micro-tripod can come in handy.

This week you’ll learn how:

  • To use a micro-tripod
  • To mount phones, GoPros, and DSLRs to micro-tripods
  • Using a micro-tripod can benefit a shot

Check out the sample videos above and this week’s full episode on lynda.com to start exploring the ways a micro-tripod can add flexibility to your next production. Be sure to check back next week for another episode of Video Gear Weekly, when we’ll explore using camera rails for better multi-camera shoots.
