I have an interest in taking tight shots of items in extreme close-up. I like the augmentation of perspective. An ant is an annoyance at worst unless its 20 times your size. Then its a fierce monster. Matter of perspective.
A difficulty with taking these kinds of shots is shake. Being so close and tight shake becomes noticeable. To remedy that I have sought out a tripod. I’m posting this info because it seems to be a good deal and it’s the right size for the work I want to use it for. Perhaps others could benefit from this discovery. I have yet to actually test the unit however as I am waiting on its delivery.
The same company also sell a USB SD card reader that is small and fits my need.
Both items plus the shipping ran me a total that is under $23. I like that.
