Using a tripod will allow you to position (with accuracy) your equipment for more consistent results. Your images will be sharper and you can use long exposures/slow shutter speeds for night-time, landscape, portrait and architectural work. This tripod is fast to set up and offers an excellent range of working heights. The pan and tilt head can be tensioned to allow camera movement when following even the most tricky subjects. Especially useful with heavy equipment and telephoto lenses. Also reduces user fatigue too. Also helpful for binoculars, telescopes and laser equipment etc.
