Improve the Photos and Videos You Share Online.


Using a tripod makes your photos sharper and your videos less shaky.

Ever notice how photos that seemed fine on the camera are blurry and out of focus on the bigger screen? Lots of things cause blur: hand movement, camera zoom, bad light, beer...

...but a tripod can help by holding your camera still and level, making photos pin-sharp and keeping video steady. Get one. Use it. Your Social Network will Like you a little bit more :)

Manfrotto Compact Series - the ideal first tripod.

The Compact Series was designed to be an ideal first tripod: easy and quick to use; ultra-portable to carry, tall enough when open.

Compact tripods are for point-and-shoots, compact camcorders and entry-level DSLRs. Even iPhone and cameraphone snaps can be improved by a Manfrotto Compact.

Know someone whose photos are so bad, you want to unfriend them every time you see one pop up on your profile?
