My Tripod - Film Equipment

I'm going to keep this blog post pretty simple. Here are the exact tripod "sticks" and head that I use for filming my videos and even for still photographs. Whenever you buy a professional tripod, you should always purchase the sticks and head separately (this is why they are not together). The tripod itself is a little heavy; fortunately, the pro to this is that it isn't shaky when taking night pictures at long exposures and it doesn't move when you’re filming. The other great pro about both of these items is that they are probably the most inexpensive tripod and head you will find for the awesome quality that they are. So, below I have provided links to the same place I bought them. :) Also, just as a heads up, I am never paid for any recommendation I will ever make on my blog; these are all things that I use and have chosen after hours, if not days, of research. I hope you can benefit from the fruits of my labor!

Here's the tripod "sticks" that I use.

And the tripod "head" that I use.

So there you have it, these are what I would suggest you buy if you’re shooting/filming with a DSLR camera.
