Tamrac TR404 ZipShot Mini Tripod

You Pay: $39.90
Product Highlights
  • Snaps Open in Seconds
  • 28" Maximum Height
  • Only 9" Folded Length
  • Integrated Metal Ball Head
  • Aluminum Legs
  • Extremely Portable & Lightweight at 9 oz
  • Supports Loads Up to 3 lb

The Tamrac TR404 ZipShot Mini Tripod sets up in seconds so you can capture those fleeting moments that require stability – the once-in-a-lifetime shot of the fast-setting sun, the rare animal skulking about the edge of the forest, or the suddenly harmonious family. The design of its aluminum legs will be familiar to any camper: release the two red shock cords, and the leg sections unfurl and quickly snap together like modern tent poles.

The ZipShot Mini is a smaller version of the original TR406 ZipShot tripod. The height of the ZipShot Mini is 28", and it folds down to just 9" for easy transport. In fact, you can use the shock cords to attach the 9 oz tripod to your backpack, camera bag or luggage.

Like its bigger sibling, the Mini features an integrated metal ball head that tilts 180° (for portrait or landscape orientation) and pans a full 360°. A single release lever enables you to position your DSLR, compact digital camera, small camcorder, or flash at any angle. (The TR404 ZipShot Mini supports loads up to 3 lb.) The tripod's standard 1/4"-20 screw fits almost any camera or camcorder.

      Comments about Tamrac TR404 ZipShot Mini Tripod:

      I love having this really light tripod for hiking/backpacking. Now I don't have to rely on bad pictures taken by strangers. It is very packable. I wish it was a little taller, but I make due most of the time (which is why it only gets 4 stars).

      Ultra compact tripod for travel

      By Dobbs

      from Dublin, Ohio

      Comments about Tamrac TR404 ZipShot Mini Tripod:

      I own a Canon T5i with 18-138mm zoom. I bought the Tamrac ZipShot Mini Tripod as an ultra compact tripod that was not a table top unit, meaning it has some height. It is wonderful for travel and takes up much less room than a traditional tripod. It's shock cord construction sets up in seconds. It is limited in weight to 3 lbs. However, the longer lens are too big a strain to hold the camera in position. My camera / lens at just over 2.5 lbs is its limit.

        Comments about Tamrac TR404 ZipShot Mini Tripod:

        I often find myself in strange low light situations, leaning against trees or walls and trying not to breath as I strive for a crisp image. Like last week when I was shooting a Viking wedding (you heard me...) and wound up trying to shoot dancing around a bonfire. With it small enough to fit in my Thinktank fanny pack, I got set up in half a minute and got shots my client wasn't even expecting. Yes, I was a Norse Hero. This little Zipshot is the BOMB.

                Comments about Tamrac TR404 ZipShot Mini Tripod:

                While compact and very light, it does not offer reasonable stability. I carried this around all week at Disney. I hardly noticed it in my bag. When I went to us it for the night shots I kept getting frustrated with it. The legs had a mind of their own. I would spread out 2 legs and the third would not cooperate. This is a fantastic idea, I just wish there was a way to get the legs to spread out evenly. I was using a Nikon D90 with a kit lens, I was not comfortable with letting the camera go. Long exposure shots did not happen. :(
