Using a Tripod for Professional Video

Tripods are beneficial to both videographers and photographers, as they offer a steady platform for short- and long-range shooting. The best tripods are durable enough to stand up to frequent travel and movement, and they keep attached equipment level to maintain shot perspective. Using video camera tripods also gives you the ability to adjust clothing on models without an assistant. You can also use self-timers or remotes after setting up your shot and get out from behind the camera to join group photos.


Tripod Types and Essential Accessories

There are slight differences between traditional tripods used for cameras and video camera tripods. The best tripods let you change mounting plates and heads to shoot from different angles. The most popular mounting plates for photography are standard and L-shaped options. Standard mounting plates hold cameras in landscape position while L-shaped brackets allow you to shoot in portrait position. Video recording requires frequent movement, so video pedestals and tripods have wheels. Using professional video quick-release plates allows you to remove video cameras quickly so you can follow the action on bumpy terrain.

With tripods that don't have quick release plates, you can use adapters to connect sliding, screw-on, and touch-and-go plates. Pedestal and tripod heads are also interchangeable, and come in multiple styles including fluid, pan-and-tilt, and focus types. With the right professional video pedestals and accessories, you can get the most from your camera and video equipment. The best tripods for amateur photographers come with levelers already on board. If a tripod doesn't come with a leveler, you can purchase it separately.


Tripods for Professionals

The Manfrotto tripod line includes several mini and full-size tripods with quick release plates. Another impressive feature of most Manfrotto tripods is height flexibility. The ability to adjust the legs from nearly ground level to eye level, and every height in between, provides a range of shooting options. Feel free to try different heights without removing your camera or video device; once mounted, your camera is securely locked in until you release it.


Choosing the Best Tripod for Traveling

The best travel tripods are adjustable, compact, and made of weather-resistant, durable materials. Slik tripods, for example, come in mini-pro and full-size options, and some of the most compact models are less than 15 inches long when folded. Take up less space in carrying cases with compact tripod and pedestal systems, and always be ready for your next great shot. Protect your equipment on the go with a durable travel case.


B&H carries tripods and accessories for cameras and video cameras. Select professional video tripod heads to give you a variety of options for mounting hardware and adapters. Choose from quick-release plates, switchboards, and levelers for your tripod.
