Trek-Tech T-Pod Mini-Review (Johan)


Hello everyone! Today I have a mini-review of the Trek-Tech T-Pod. I hope to post again soon. Enjoy!

The first thing I noticed about the Trek-Tech T-Pod was its extremely sturdy construction. Designed in the USA, compared to most table-top tripods, it’s built like a brick.

The tripod makes use of rare-earth magnets which are very strong and photo safe. The detachable and expandable center column connects to a magnet on the legs and the camera mounts to the ballhead in the same manner. For a shorter tripod, the ballhead can be mounted directly to the legs.

The ballhead and quick-release system, which are included, are rated for nine pounds and very well designed. I have used the T-Pod to support my gripped 40D, 70-200/2.8, and 580EX flash, with no problems whatsoever.

The T’Pod is also effective as a chest stabilizer arm or mini monopod; I have used it as such on numerous occasions.

In summary, I am very pleased with the T-Pod and highly recommend it to anyone who needs a compact go-everywhere tripod for their SLR camera. This tripod is truly outstanding and a pleasure to use.
