Gear up tri­pod

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

It’s cru­cial that you have a rock-steady tri­pod dur­ing long ex­po­sures – a light­weight travel tri­pod might be too flimsy for this sort of job. I use the heavy-duty Se­ries 3 Gitzo 3542XLS car­bon fi­bre tri­pod. The legs will ex­tend to two me­tres so I can ma­noeu­vre it into the most dif­fi­cult po­si­tions and achieve higher view­points than is pos­si­ble most tripods. In windy con­di­tions, I can hang my back­pack from the tri­pod to give more sta­bil­ity – that’s worth look­ing for in a tri­pod. All this and it weighs only 3.1 kilo­grams.
