DIGITAL OR PHYSICAL MEDIA

With our multifunctional media tabs, you don't need to choose between the two - because art making is art making.

BUILT FOR STABILITY

Need to stay a while? The Slate Satchel easily connects to any photography tripod for unrivalled stability.

We use Manfrotto products, in fact we have three of them in our office - two photography tripods and one for video / filming.

Prices tend to range between US$200 - US$1,000 and they're a market leader in the photography equipment field for a reason.
We strongly suggest physically visiting a camera specialist store to try them out in person.

You can often buy the head (the component which your Etchr product will attach to) and the tripod (the telescopic legs) separately.

The heavier build aluminium tripod legs are more rigid and sturdy than the lighter build aluminium legs. It’s a trade off between portability and stability. If your Etchr product is loaded up with gear, lightweight aluminium legs are more prone to instability whereas the extra ballast from the heavier builds offers greater stability. Ultimately, it's a personal decision as to what is more important.

The second part you'll want to look at is the head – this attaches to the Etchr tripod attachment plate. There are a few different types of heads but the most common are ball-heads and three way / axis heads. Our advice is to generally ignore the ball heads, unless you're only going to be carrying very little gear. They're ok for cameras but for our products the ball head mechanism can sometimes slip when you're working with them. The 3 way / axis heads allow you to lock all 3 axis, so it's much more capable overall.

Finally, make sure to look for an easy to use spring loaded quick release plate on the head. A fiddly mechanism to deal with can be annoying in the field.

If you can stretch your budget, the Manfrotto 290 XTRA Tripod + MH804 - 3 Way Head (MK290XTA3-3W) is a great choice.

If that is a little expensive, the Manfrotto Compact Advanced Tripod + 3-Way Head is also a solid choice at only half the price.
