In my experience there’s no structure on Earth more stable than a tent, oh wait, I mean just the opposite, which is why I’m really intrigued by Tamrac’s new ZipShot tripod. It uses tent pole-like legs to make it ultra compact when folded (15 inches long when collapsed) and light (just 11 oz.) but at the same time it opens in just seconds, and can apparently support even DSLRs up to 3 lbs in weight. Now I have to assume Tamrac has ensured the whole thing is stable when setup, since they’re not exactly an unknown brand when it comes to photography, and if it works as promised the $50 price tag doesn’t actually seem too unreasonable.
