Camera Tripods & Heads

Camera tripods and heads are fundamental camera accessories that provide stability you simply can't achieve when shooting by hand. If you are struggling to get crisp photos during your shoots, a tripod may be the answer. A tripod acts as a stable base for the camera that allows you to capture images using slow shutter speed or in situations where you want to capture the exact same image multiple times at different exposures.  Camera tripods are particularly important to studio photographers repeating shots and in astrophotography where there is not enough light to hand hold the camera.

Not only do camera tripods provide stability, but a quality tripod head allows you to make precise adjustments to your camera angle to customize and repeat shots that would otherwise be impossible. Ball head tripods are the most popular type and give you near total freedom to adjust your shooting angle. Fluid head tripods are typically used as video equipment, but many photographers use them to capture beautiful panoramic shots. Here at Samy's we offer a wide selection of fluid head and ball head tripods that will help you improve your photos.

Do I Need a Tripod for Photography?

While you don't need a tripod to take great photographs, they do help you get the most out of your camera for specific applications. A camera tripod paired with a quality tripod head lets you shoot in low light with a slow shutter, create beautiful long exposure shots, and take photos with long lenses.

Are Tripod Heads Universal?

While not universal, most quality tripod heads feature a threaded 3/8"-16 base mount and a 1/4"-20 male thread to match the 1/4" female thread found at the bottom of most modern cameras. If you are unsure if your camera or tripod is compatible with the head you want, be sure to check their product specifications.
