Tripod List

One of the tools that is very important and one that you will use a lot in the RCC photo program is a tripod. In fact if you purchase a good one it will last for many years to come.

There are many out there from which to choose, probably too many, so we have compiled a list of sorts to help you navigate to a good purchase.

Below are the tripods we consider to be a good investment and are able to do everything you will need them to do.

Medium format film cameras are heavy! We highly recommend the Bogen-Manfrotto, Slik, Induro or Benro brands. 3 way pan/tilt heads are preferred, ball heads are not recommended. Standard or quick release plate heads are both acceptable.
