New Tripod in My Life

I've replaced my heavy and battle-worn tripod. It has two and a half decades of history on it. Anyway, it's time for a tripod that will not put a strain on me as I strap it to my camera bag and sling it around.

I picked up a ProMaster XC525 tripod at Mike's Camera after reading reviews and watching videos about it. The price, weight, and functionality are a great combo! I still need to mount my camera on it. However, I am digging the included ball head and built-in monopod.

I look forward to shooting long exposure scenes in the city and doing creative light effects with my CrossFit and fitness photography. Light trails and light painting are in the books, too!

Tripod Review Update

Summer 2016: I have yet to use the tripod as anticipated. However, I captured the beautiful, starry southwest night sky in Taos, NM. The tripod is stable for being a lightweight product. I zoomed into the stars with my Nikon 18-200 lens and saw no jitters.

Next, I will take it on a hike, hooked onto my camera backpack. Stay tuned, folks!

Fall 2016: This tripod worked very well when I took the Hunter's Supermoon photos. Check out the Supermoon pictures and the settings I used.

Photos Taken From the Tripod

Here are some long exposure and stationary shots I took using a tripod. I have been wanting to capture silky long-exposure shots of water.
