What We Like Working With

Tripod is everything when it comes to capturing that special LE (long expo) moment. But tripods can be heavy when having to carry them around just for maybe one shot only. So here’s the thing – the JOBY Gorilla Tripod

This fun to work with and lightweight tripod (499 g / 1,1 lbs; 76s g / 1,62 lbs with Ballhead X) for professional DSLR comes in at around $ 60 but you should buy the Ballhead X to go with it. The set costs $ 149,95 at Joby website. This gets you everywhere, even on hiking trips around mountains. So grab yours quickly.
