Looking for the right tripod can be quite an undertaking. There are hundreds of offers on the market, and they all seem to promise the same. In this review, I looked at five popular and highly rated video tripods and will tell you what I think about them.
Note: Since we’re mostly talking about “video” here and not about professional filmmaking, I kept my selection rather budget-friendly. The truth is you can spend as much on a tripod as on a nice car. However, I assumed that most people visiting this site would be more interested in a tripod you don’t need to sell your car for. Feel free to tell me otherwise in the comments. 😉
