Equipment checkout: Tripods available in four types

Submitted by IT Help Desk

Whether you're an aspiring photographer, budding cinematographer, or just wanting to capture some memories, you'll most likely want not only a camera but a tripod as well. Well, look no further, because the equipment checkout service has options for you.

We carry four basic types of tripods that range from small to quite large.

  • Monopods if you just want to steady a camera while sitting in confined quarters, such as in a row at a graduation ceremony (only one portion  touches the ground)
  • Smaller tripods that are compact as well as lightweight
  • A bit larger tripods that are ideal for large or small cameras
  • Large Manfrotto tripods that are recommended if you are recording for an extended period of time and the camera is heavy 

These tripods are available for current K-State students and employees to check out.  For more details, see the full article in IT News.
