Tamrac ZipShot Tripod
World’s Most Portable Tripod; Lightweight, Collapsible, Sets Up in Seconds
ZipShot, the world’s most portable tripod, springs open in seconds and makes it easy for travelers to capture the memories from their summer trips. Developed and marketed by Tamrac, the leader in camera cases and photography accessories, ZipShot is an ultra-light, ultra-compact tripod weighing just 11 ounces and folding to 15 inches, making it easy for anyone to bring along on their summer vacation this year.
There are many situations where having a tripod is essential for a great shot: the fleeting photo opportunity as the sun sets over the water, the hummingbird that hovers for just a few moments, or the group photo with everyone in it. Until now, most travelers have chosen to leave bulky, heavy tripods at home. ZipShot’s small form factor and light weight make it the perfect travel solution. Its legs spring open in seconds to a height of 44 inches to support DSLRs weighing up to three pounds, point-and-shoot cameras and camcorders. The compact size makes it easy to pack in a carry-on suitcase, backpack, or purse, making ZipShot this season’s must-have travel accessory.
“Every time I return from an adventure and am dissatisfied with my photos, it’s because I didn’t use a tripod. But until recently, I haven’t wanted to add another bulky piece of equipment to the laundry list of things we bring on family vacations,” said Steve Werner, president of Werner Publishing. “That’s changed. I’ve been able to carry ZipShot in my backpack, on my dirtbike and on skis. Now, we can hop off the ski lift, set up in seconds, and take a great picture of our whole party.”
ZipShot is available for purchase at Amazon.com, Sears, Ritz Camera, B&H and independent photo shops worldwide. The product retails at an MSRP of $59.99.
Designed by Tamrac, the leader in camera cases and accessories, ZipShot allows everyone to capture the great shots they have been missing with a portable tripod that can be taken along anywhere. Made of aluminum, the ZipShot is totally portable, weighs only 11 ounces and fits easily into a carry-on suitcase, backpack or purse.
