A tripod is a portable three-legged frame that provides steady, stable support for your heavy DSLR gear, and lets you shoot crisp, sharp shots even in low-light conditions that require longer shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s. Buy a tripod for your camera and take better shots. Our tripod range includes top-brands like 3 Legged Thing, Benro, Gitzo, Joby, Kirk, Manfrotto, MeFoto and Miggo.
