  • Andoer Aluminum Travel Camera Tripod review

    Tripods, you can never have enough when you are photo or film enthusiast. Now, in the days of 3 axis gimbals everywhere for every purpose, Tripods have lesser roles at least in some scenarios. Still tripod is irreplaceable in various situations. And the recent travel rules and issues with batteries always makes 3 axis gimbals a riskier item to carry on board in flights.

    What if, when you have added bonus of mounting Camera in different positions, upside down for ground level shots or even the tripod itself can act as a monopod? Andoer tripod is a top end light weight aluminium tripod with ball head, coupled with monopod feature. In fully collapsed position, full length of the tripod is just 30 centimetre.

    This is a very large tripod with height up to 133cm and weight just under 1.2kg. It’s made of aluminium, legs has twist mechanism and can be turned upside down (180 degree) for ground level shots. All the legs has twist lock mechanism and comes with ball head with a spirit level.

    Quick release plate is of very high quality, easy to attach or detach and has rubber layer on top to avoid scratch on camera base. One of the legs can be detached and attach it to the tripod ball head - converts into a monopod. This is the highlight of the tripod unit in my opinion. Please note that this is not a large or heavy tripod, but mainly aim towards people who travels a lot.
    Lightweight Tripod & Monopod in one unit
    Andoer Aluminium tripod is a very solid, easy to carry tripod that gives a lot of value for money. Easier to setup and take down without any effort. Monopod feature is the highlight but do have extra stability comparing to cheaper tripods in similar price category. 360 degree smooth ball head make panning smoother in videos.

    There is also a lightly padded bag included in the pack. This unit has one of the most solid legs I’ve ever seen on top end tripods. Most of the tripod is constructed from aluminium and rest of the parts are made of ABS plastic.

    Overall a decent travel tripod, lightweight and durable. Easy to setup and collapse without much effort. Carry bag is decent enough to give enough protection, thanks to its light padding. Please do check out the pictures for a closer look.
