I had never used a tripod before in photography until the other day when it was my husbands birthday as he's into photography and someone bought him one of these Cobra CT-320 which when I looked online at the prices vary from £31 to £38 all depending on where you buy it from. He had been after one for ages as his other tripod has given up the ghost after four years of being lugged around and used.
i thought this was an idea present for him and also it would make a great present for anyone into photography.
The tripod is quite sturdy and folds down to fit into a handy black bag which you can carry over your shoulder if your taking your camera on holiday or outside for some wild life shooting or scenery shots.
It's simular to a carrying bag you get a small tent in the material type bag which is light and easy to carry.
the tripod stand is also good for taking family photo's too as you can set it up and set the timer giving yourself enough time to get into the shot with the rest of the family. There's many a time when the whole family has been missing someone as they are the one's taking the photo but with this tripod all can be included if you set the camera timer. This is great for wedding photo's and birthday bashes.
It's made out of aluminium which is good for outside us as you can use it in the rain or damp without it rusting, but these aren't really the best conditions to do photography in.
COBRA is renowned in the photo industry for over 30 years in the development, manufacturing and distribution of camera accessories.
The tripod operating height can be adjusted from 57 cm - 154 cm and the central column is geared for easy adjustment, it has non slip feet and is a floor standing tripod.
It also has terrrain spikes if your using it outside then you can stick it in the ground so it won't wobble about whilst your taking photo's and it is suitable for all types of digital camera's and camcorders.
It holds up to 3g in the weight of a camera or camcorder so is quite handy at handleling any of these camera's or camcorders within this weight.
I like the idea that you can just set it up and shoot, it's a great piece of equipment for outdoor use and for familty photo shoots as you can all get in on the act.
It's sturdy and easy to set up and isn't too over priced for the budget.
A great buy for yourself or for a present.
