A "good" tripod is a fundamental part of any photographer's kit, and is well worth its weight in gold - especially since tripods are getting lighter all the time. A quality tripod can provide you with the sharpest possible pictures from your expensive camera and lenses, and allow you get those shots you've only dreamed of - giving you time to think more carefully about composition. In fact it will probably improve your hit rate more than any other piece of equipment you use. The old axiom "you get what you pay for" could not be truer than when it comes to tripods.
A camera tripod can make a huge difference in the sharpness and overall quality of photos. It enables photos to be taken with less light or a greater depth of field, in addition to enabling several specialty techniques. This tutorial is all about how to choose and make the most of your camera tripod.
Choosing a tripod is always a compromise. No matter how much research is done, you are never quite sure that the choice you are about to make is the correct one. And even after you've used your tripod for over a year, you might still be uncertain of your choice. Whatever decision you finally make will be fine since you will learn to adapt to the few compromises that you knew you had to make.
