My Favorite Tripods

Curious about Tripods and how this piece of equipment can help you take your photo game to to the next level? Let's chat about my three personal favorites. Yup. I have three favorites, with two of them being my go-to tripods.

Oben AT-3565 Aluminum Tripod

One of my go-to favorites is the Oben AT-3565 Aluminum Tripod. If you were to peek at my personal gear stash, this beauty is right at home. 

Two features I love? 

The fact it can hold over 13lbs of gear and how each leg of the tripod can handle uneven ground. That means even in the sandy terrain of Florida, I can get a level shot.

Magnus TR-13 Travel Tripod

The Magnus TR-13 Travel Tripod is a solid contender if you are looking for a travel tripod. 

One of the features that makes this piece stand out is how the main center column is reversible the closer you bring it to the ground. 

And between you and me, the fact that it folds to a mere 18.2″ makes this tripod an essential piece of travel gear.

Manfrotto MK190X3-BH

And finally, last but not least by any means, another go-to tripod of mine is the Manfrotto MK190X3-BH. One of the features I find myself using on this stunning piece of equipment is the one-handed setup feature. 

As a proud dad of 4 kiddos, I know just how full hands can be when juggling gear and kids. 

Don't worry, it will be our little secret if you end up using it for other than just for taking pictures of the kids… sunsets on the beach perhaps?

Whatever the reason for using a tripod, from taking Summer photos to capturing the still of a Winters night, I hope one of these tripods end up in your gear bag as well. Let me know in the comments which one you use!
