How to choose the best tripod: 10 things photographers should look for
How to choose the best tripod: 5. Columns or booms?
Any tripod will let you shoot horizontally, but what if you need to get over your subject to shoot it, or the tripod legs stop you getting close enough?
Some tripods have a centre column which can be rotated to act as an angled ‘boom’.
This is a really useful feature if you do a lot of table-top or close-up photography.
How to choose the best tripod: 6. How low can you get?
For ultra-low-level shooting, some tripods let you split the centre column and insert it upside down to get the camera right down to ground level.
It’s a little more awkward to work with but it lets you shoot from angles which would normally be impossible.
