Digital Photography - Use A Quick Release Tripod For Set-Up Speed And Convenience
Although camera tripods come in many styles and sizes, they all operate pretty much alike. You mount your camera on the tripod head, set the length of the legs, adjust the framing of your camera, and shoot. While tripods are great photo accessories, they also take time to use. One way to speed things along when shooting is to use a tripod equipped with quick release head mount. Before you begin shooting, you attach your camera to a special mounting plate. When ready to place your camera on your tripod head, you flip a lever to lock down your camera, and you're ready to go in a few seconds.
