On Saturday I’m off to the Worldwide Photowalk and wanted to share some of the equipment I will be carrying. I’ve had most of it for some time but one item is brand new. First the existing stuff.
So far this list is the same setup I carry most everywhere. But here’s my new item.
So why am I carrying this? Because a photowalk is no place for a full sized tripod (I’ve done it) but some method of stabilizing the camera is good to have. Beanbags are limited to finding a flat surface while the Gorillapods can wrap around poles. Of course this device has its own limits. Difficulty with vertical photos is one but since I already have an L-Bracket this issue is eliminated. The other problem is height. While it can get very, very low I will need to find a platform for higher shots.
I’m looking forward to trying it out.
