Film/Action Photography

When it comes to film and action photography, the needs you will have as far as the characteristics of your tripod are concerned might vary greatly from that of other types of photography you might partake in. For example, you need to be able to move quickly and take the perfect shot at a moment’s notice; you need to be able to capture precise images, and possibly have a wide range of motion in order to accommodate the need for many different angles. Depending on what you value most in your photography, some characteristics of your tripod are going to be more important to you than others. Here are some of the characteristics you might want to consider prioritising in your tripod for use in film and action photography:


  • Compact: You are going to want a small tripod in order to make it easier to accommodate any fast movements you might need to make in order to get your camera in position quickly. The compactness of the smaller tripod will also make it easier to re-locate to follow to where the action is so you can get your ideal shot. A tripod such as Giotto’s MTL9361 is the perfect combination of compact and durable, allowing you to navigate your camera quickly as you will need to.
  • Durable: A tripod that is built from materials that are designed to last is a must-have, especially when it comes to film and action photography. Because you are moving around so much in a variety of environments, you want to trust that your tripod is up for any challenge you might present it with. For this reason, models like Giotto’s MTL9351 B Tripod and the durable aluminium it is constructed from are ideal for film and action photographers.
  • Precision: If you are looking for a crisp-looking image that captures your subject matter with precision, then you are going to need to look for a tripod that is designed to offer that to its user. Models such as Giotto’s MH5001 3-Way pan head model are designed to be sturdy and point your camera precisely where it is aimed, in order to capture a crisp image.


It is definitely not an easy task to choose the tripod you trust to carry with you through your film and action photography needs. After all, if the photos do not turn out the way you wanted them to, in this line of photography, it is not always a simple feat to get the opportunity to re-take them. For this reason, you need a tripod that you can have faith in to get the job done right the first time. Decide which of the criteria listed above are most important to you in a quality tripod, and try to find one that offers a nice balance of all that you are looking for in your ideal tripod. It becomes much easier to find a tripod that you will be happy with if you first decide what is most important to you and prioritise those qualities when choosing the tripod that is best for your needs.
