travel tripods, (or just tripods for photography in general), don’t have a great deal of differentiating factors to compare.
Unlike a camera or a lens for example, tripods are rather basic tools with one main purpose – that is, to hold your camera steadily.
However, the more I delved into researching the best travel tripods, the more I realised that there’s more than meets the eye with these 3-legged objects. Whilst most tripods can do their job of supporting cameras quite adequately, there are certain factors that separate these ‘adequate’ tripods from the very best tripods on the market.
The Sevenoak SK-T1 is a light weight and portable aluminum mini tripod designed for use with smartphones, action cameras and DSLRs. It comes with a small ball head, mini tripod and an extension tube. The small ball head makes it convenient for you to mount your device in a right position to take the best shoots. The mini tripod is designed with angle adjustment which enables you to change the angle of the feet easily. The best part is the extension tube that makes this mini tripod able to use at different height according to your specific requirement. SK-T1 can also be used as tripod or as a selfie stick when the feet are folded up.
Let’s look first at why you may need a travel tripod.
Packing your camera bag for your next trip, whether professional or for pleasure, always brings with it certain limitations. Whether you plan to take your camera gear as carry on or check in, weight limits and luggage size limits will always be an issue (check out my travel tips for photographers to see some handy workarounds).
