Stay­ing rock solid

NPhoto - - Road Trip -

No mat­ter how sturdy your tri­pod is, some­times it still rocks and moves in the wind. Thank­fully, you can strap it down with just one bungee cord.

At the end of a hard slog up­hill, you’ll be glad not to be car­ry­ing any­thing more than the bare es­sen­tials. But throw just one bungee cord in the mix and you have an in­stant tri­pod weight for those rough-weather days. Sling your cam­era bag un­der the tri­pod and tie one end of the cord around a strap. At­tach the other to your tri­pod’s weight mount (or around the cen­tre col­umn as I did here) and voila! Your tri­pod is now much more steady. You needn’t only use this in windy con­di­tions – it’s a handy tech­nique what­ever the weather.
