What To Look For The best camera tripod head for your video

  Whether photography or video, in the professional field to go to your must-have item list indispensable for a suitable camera rig. The camera rig can be regarded as the hero of the right and left arm for a camera that produces the same good work. But its role is often overlooked for beginners, that as long as the machine is stable or use the anti-shake lens no problem. In actual fact, whether it is landscapes, portraits, and even ecological photography camera, to enhance the clarity of the film, a stable tripod is more than a shockproof lens more real. And a good camera rig, it really can be spent ten years twenty years, so a one-time investment in an excellent tripod is definitely worth considering.
  First, choose the material of the tripod
  Camera rig According to the material classification can be divided into wood, high-strength plastic material, alloy material, steel material, volcanic stone, carbon fiber and many other common material is aluminum alloy, aluminum alloy tripod has the advantage of light weight, strong. The latest tripod is made of carbon fiber material, which has better toughness than aluminum and lighter weight, etc., often carrying a tripod to go out to take pictures of the weight of the tripod are very important, I hope it can be lighter The better.

Second, stability
  The first element of choosing a tripod is stability. If the tripod is too light or lock the connection part of the production process is not good, it will cause the whole rack loose, which would not be stable camera used. Although the first element is stable, but it is also a headache here, generally stable camera rig itself is relatively heavy quality, camera rig and camera rig bearing the load requirements are different, but the pursuit is In the same way, often photographers will compromise on quality and stability as well as load bearing capacity. Choosing a camera rig with a compromise in all aspects is the ultimate goal.
  Third, do not overlook tripod head

  In fact, the tripod is mainly composed of two parts, namely tripod and tripod head. Tripod is to stabilize the camera on the ground, tripod head is used to adjust the shooting angle and connect the camera. This is something most beginners do not know. Because most of the tripod to buy camera, tripod and most are tripod head together, can not be separated, it will ignore the importance of tripod head. The advantage of the separation is that different tripod head can be changed according to different shooting needs. Therefore, I suggest that users should separately purchase tripod and tripod head.
