“Now…now, are we still on planet earth? It seems so weird and gross over here!” Obviously that wasn’t a cricket commentary about the performance of ‘that team of 11 weirdoes’ (phew…now that’s a relief). That could very well have been the reaction of a guy from the 80’s who happened to take that experimental trip in a time machine…and ended up in 2012 (hmmm…that happens every now and then!).
Hey, now don’t ask us if we have ever met such a guy in person. This story was told by a friend of a friend of a friend of…well you know the rest! And we bet our hats and our neighbour’s mini tripod that it really happened.
Ok we’ll stop bragging and get to the point…if that’s what you would prefer. These days everything is being downsized for the convenience of the users…and so is the case with tripods and tripod accessories. Things are quite different (and weird for those who time travel from the past) from what they used to be few decades back. And as a byproduct of this gross fad, we have mini tripods (We would love to elaborate in detail…but taking in consideration, the patience of our readers which we have been testing for quite some while…we’ll keep it short). Mini tripods are to tripods, what tablets are to PCs.
They are basically downsized versions of tripods (no, we don’t think you are dumb enough to realize that by yourself…but since the page has to be filled up, we had to give that bookish description), crafted to offer more convenience and ease of usage to the photographers. They are lightweight, portable and easy to use mini accessories. They come handy in a number of situations by providing steady support to click the best shots/ shoot clear videos. And did we mention that they work well with different types of cameras and mini cameras?
Two of the best mini tripod brands available at Smifu are Gorilla and Silk mini tripod.
