In Reviews

I just bought my first tripod, Amazon Basics 60”, from Amazon UK which is the best beginners tripod in my opinion. As I mentioned in my previous post, here is my review. This tripod represents best price and quality ratio.  There is so many models and brands, so it was very hard to decide which one to bought. I wanted a tripod that is cheap, light and simple for use. Reason for that is because I’m still learning about photography and don’t know how much I will use it. That is why I had two tripods from the Amazon in the shortlist. First one is Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and second one is Amazon Basics 60 ”. I didn’t go for Dolica because it was only available from Amazon USA, which made his price twice as expensive for delivery to Croatia.

Price and delivery

Amazon Basics 60” Tripod has been ordered and praised so many times that you can find as many as 983 reviews on Amazon and more on the YouTube channel. Its price is 18.49 pounds, with tax and delivery to Croatia price was 27.58 pounds. So, the price is more than acceptable, given that in Croatia you will not find a good product in that price range. You can only find Chinese tripods with poor quality, durability and capacity. The stand came here in 5 days, packed in two cardboard boxes and with a bag. It was additionally secured in the bag and wrapped in a plastic foil. Its weight is 1.36 kg/ 3 lbs.  which makes it perfect for travel, even if you have a more expensive tripod, you can always use it as a spare one.

Setting your tripod

The tripod is mounted on three legs that can be increased 2 times, at 2 slopes. The slops are secured with a clasp that you can tighten and release depending on how high you want to set it. Between these 3 legs, there is a central column that holds the camera. At the bottom of the central column there is a hook on which you can attach the load to stay more stable. Best thing to attach on the hook is the bag of sand or stones you find in the place you are shooting.

The center column is secured by a rotating bolt and an additional rotating handle. It raises or lowers central column. The camera bracket has several screws. One is to rotate the camera vertically to shoot a portrait. The other is to rotate the camera left to right and the third to move the camera up and down. The tripod has quick release plate. It is also secured with a safety clip that is clicked when it is well set.

The plate allows you to attach the camera on it and simply pick up your camera with a plate from a tripod. This allows you to spend less time on setting up and removing the camera from the tripod. You only need to attach it to the plate and take it off with the camera. Then you shoot what you want with the camera in your hands and return the camera with a plate to the tripod. Great and fast option.

Simple and easy

The tripods load capacity is 3 kg/6.6 pounds, which is enough for the initial DSLR camera and the lens. If you have professional equipment, this tripod is not for you. It’s all so easy and simple that you do not have to think about how to use it and read the instructions for use, even if you first encounter with a tripod like me. Tripod is not intended for video recording because there is no rotating head that allows movement of the camera. But, you can do a fairly decent video because when you release the handles, you can easily rotate the camera on both sides up and down, left or right.

Personally, I’m very happy with two spirit leveling instruments on the tripod. One level shows a bubble in the circle to straighten the tripod on the floor. The second level shows the placement of the camera on the tripod. The stand is very stable and there is no need to roughly press the handles.

 

Perfect for beginners

This is the perfect ratio of invested money and quality that you get. For beginners it is the best option. You can see how to use tripod and how much you will really use it. Judging by the reviews of other customers, it should endure long-term and regular use. When you progress and feel the need for a better product, you can always use it as a spare tripod. Also, it is very good for travel because it is light. Buying this product you will not make a mistake. You can find it and order it here.

    Hi guys

    I remember speaking to someone from your company about the global vape shop database I am using for my ejuice brand.

    I think this is the link to the official sales page: https://bit.ly/2V3ZKAU

    I could of course send you my copy of the database but I think it is best if you get your own copy to get all the latest updates.

    I hope that helps.

    Good morning

    I am looking to build up my B2B email list for newsletter marketing.

    I am very keen to get Ivy’s B2B Leads Miner – Yellow Pages Scraper Software as it is probably one of the best Yellow Pages scrapers for UK and USA out there.

    I was just wondering if you have ever used this particular or any other scrapers before?

    Cheers guys!

    WHAT IS A VAPE PBN BACKLINK, AND HOW CAN IT HELP YOU MARKET YOUR E-CIGARETTE BUSINESS ONLINE?

    Backlinks are similar to citations found in non-fiction books. They are references to your website, made by other websites that drive traffic to your online content.

  • Vape Shop Leads

    Hi, I am the marketing assistant at Peaches and Screams. We are currently striving to take advantage of the vape wholesale marketplace. Does anybody at all here have any kind of expertise with the vape market place or B2B lead generation? We are very much inclined to get the Global Vape Shop Database, Vape Company E-Mail List and Yoggy’s Money Vault Search Engine Scraper so as to produce our own B2B leads. Does anybody here have any sort of practical experience with any of the above advertising tools? Would love to listen to your thoughts and testimonials prior to committing myself to the purchase. Additionally, I would very much appreciate any suggestions for helping us to develop our vape wholesale operation. Thanks
