Anyone who has ever tried their hand at photography could tell you that tripods can be unwieldy pains in the tuchus. Cumbersome, scarcely portable, partially (with some difficulty) collapsible, most tripods make the life of a photographer more difficult than it should be. With their Ultra-Compact, self-declared world’s fastest tripod, Lumapod promises to change all that.
Super lightweight and totally collapsible, the Lumapod tripod is a photographer’s best friend and an ideal camera accessory. It comes in a small and large size, respectively titled the Go85 (85 cm tall, weighing 400 g) and the Go120 (120 cm tall, weighing 690 g). The lightning-fast expansion and collapse of the two tripods have been timed at just four seconds, and at its smallest, the Go85 is a mere 33.5 cm, while the Go120 measures just 44.5 cm. Not only is the Lumapod lightweight and super compact, but it’s also highly versatile. Lumapod claims to be the first tripod that can hold smartphones, GoPro cameras, along with mirrorless and DSLR cameras on the market.
