Whether or not you struggle to shoot video while holding a camera, mounting your camera on a tripod will vastly improve your shots. One can be particularly handy in low-light settings, time-lapses, and incredibly long shoots. A tripod can also help you position your camera at angles that would otherwise be awkward for a cameraperson. Tripods for moving images are quite different from those for still cameras, incorporating a fluid-filled head to make panning smoother. While lightweight field tripods are less suitable for heavy equipment, they can be ideal for vloggers and travel videographers using lighter cameras. When choosing a video tripod, it’s important to consider load capacity, as you should have one that handles all your equipment effortlessly; it’s also important to think about whether you need to make quick adjustments and whether you frequently shoot outdoors with possible wind.
