A camera tripod is a variation of the standard three-legged stand for supporting weight which is specifically designed for cameras. The camera tripod is used to prevent movement of the camera and provide stability for framing shots and ensuring they?re 100% in focus and not effected by blur. Camera tripods can be used with both video and regular cameras.
Camera tripods can be used for mounting and elevating other equipment such as flashes. They come in a range of different styles but have similar appearances and come in both flexible and fixed leg styles. As well as the standard tripods on the market there are portable and travel tripods which make it even easier to access this useful accessory for improving and creating photographs and films.
