Unlike a camera or a lens for example, tripods are rather basic tools with one main purpose – that is, to hold your camera steadily.
However, the more I delved into researching the best travel tripods, the more I realised that there’s more than meets the eye with these 3-legged objects.
Let’s have a closer look at those pro-grade technologies that the Corey possesses.
First off, there’s a Tri-mount plate, which features handy hanging hooks (to aid stability), and can be attached directly to the main tripod body so you can get as low as 4″ from the ground.
Tripod leg braces are more common on tripods for videographers who traditionally have much heavier gear, but on a photographer’s tripod, they are still useful for additional reinforcement and stability.Then there’s the detachable feet of the Corey (which 3LT call ‘Bootz’!), which can be replaced for a range of other spikey foot accessories sold by 3LT, increasing stability and traction depending on the terrain.I haven’t seen this feature on any other travel tripod.The main benefits of the Punks Corey revolve around its size and weight.
