There are many situations when a tripod is needed to capture a great shot:
The fleeting photo opportunity of the perfect sunset or the family photo with
everyone in it.
The problem is that most tripods are heavy, difficult to carry and slow to set up which causes many missed photo opportunities. The ZipShot tripod is the answer. Just release the two red shock cords and the legs of the ZipShot spring open in seconds to a height of 44" (112cm).
Attach your camera and you're ready to shoot. At only 11 oz. (312g) and 15" (38cm) when folded, the ZipShot is ultra-lightweight and ultra-compact. Constructed of sturdy, high-quality aluminum with a heavy-duty, metal ball-head, it will hold a DSLR camera and lens up to 3 lbs. (1361g) and all point-and-shoot cameras.
