      The Tripod

      Tripods are used for both still and motion photography to prevent camera movement. They are necessary when slow-speed exposures are being made, or when telephoto lenses are used, as any camera movement while the shutter is open will produce a blurred image.

      Using the tripod:
      1. Extend legs to desired height. Dependent on what visual shot you want.
      2. Spread the legs as far out as possible, to make sure its stable.
      3. Slide the camera carefully on top.

      5. Do the pick up test to make sure it's steady.
      6. Whilst Travelling take off the camera and pack up the tripod.
      7. Slide the camera off by pressing the red button down.
