Madrid, February 6, 2008. Although frequently used in practice, the tripod is the ideal photographic tool for an amateur to achieve great images. The practice has been facilitated with the advent of digital cameras is no longer necessary to wait until the developer to know how an image has been but that it appears instantly on the screen and may be deleted. Thus, attempts are made to take a good picture no longer depend on the ability of the reel but the power and number of batteries you have. The use of the tripod became less frequent by the possibilities of the photographic world, but is a useful element that takes advantage of new resources to the fullest. The tripod was set up as an accessory that can extend the exposure time of the camera (shutter opening extended) ensuring that the picture does not move out. As its name suggests has three legs and upper part (called head) is attached the camera. The head has a universal screw is usually to adapt to any camera model.

There are tripods of all sizes, from a very large for studies to some very small and easy to transport. To achieve fixed panoramic photos is the best accessory since it ensures the stability of the camera in its entirety. There is a possibility that the head can move (while the camera remains fixed) side to side and up and down so that you can change the angle of the shot without having to move the attachment site. In turn, most tripods medium and large support the possibility to adjust the height depending on what is needed. Many tripods usually have a shoe that conforms to a thread and stays in it so you can connect quickly without having to screw every time. For maximum stability, it is recommended that the tripod is light and if you prefer a light, ideally, a trigger for not moving the camera when pressing the shutter button.
