One thing that amazes me is people who will spend anything from a few hundred pounds to a few thousand on a shiny, all singing, all dancing SLR camera and then decide a tripod is something they can live without. Tripods help stabilise the camera and help maximise sharpness and detail whilst cutting out the dreaded camera shake that can otherwise cause blurring.
If anything a tripod should be an integral part of any photographer’s kit bag no matter what their level of skill. With the right tripod and technique you can create stunning, high-quality, professional looking images. The Traveller Pro from Hama ensures excellent still shots, (self-) portraits or horizontal tilts and vertical pans with its 3D ball tilt head and rotating central column for macro photography.
With extendable tripod legs, the height of the Traveler Pro is fully adjustable making it capable of elevating your camera to a maximum of 163cm, combine that with expandable legs for optimum proximity to the ground so that you can position your camera to suit your situation in order to capture the exact image that you want.
With great attention to detail its built-in spirit level allows you to be sure that you’ll be taking precise, level photos with ease, aided by the secure quick-action leg locks, central column brake and rubber feet that permit a reliable, firm, steady hold on a variety of different terrains.
Lets not forget that it’s traveller by name and by nature, the light aluminium construction, it’s approximately 1.3kg and comes with a travel case making transportation easy and convenient, so wherever you are in the world you are always prepared for that unexpected photo opportunity! Even mounting or changing cameras on the go is made super easy thanks to the quick-release plate with safety catch and “click function”.
If you ask me, and if you’re reading this I’m going to assume you did, the Traveler Pro from Hama is a must for any keen photographer and while it has a fairly reasonable retail price of £69.99 you can snap it up for just from Amazon. So what are you waiting for? Go buy it!
