What need to be considered when buying a tripod stand?
How much weight can the tripod support?
Many beginners in photography buy a tripod that can only support light equipment rather than heavy camera. What happened in the end was that a certain fulcrum of the tripod could not be supported, which could cause the camera to become unstable and affect the photo quality or even damage the camera and lens.
Always make sure that the weight supported by the tripod to be purchased is at least 1.5 times or more of the total weight of the camera and lens.
I always recommend that you buy a tripod that fits your height so that you don't have to bend down and look into the viewfinder. After placing the camera on the tripod, the viewfinder should be within your sight. This allows you to adjust the lens to suit more scenes, whether the sky, mountain waterfalls or flowers on the lawn.
The foldable tripod is easy to carry when traveling. You need to pack it in your luggage and carry it with you.

Generally speaking, the size of the screw hole at the bottom of the SLR camera is 1/4", and the size of the middle bearing carrier plate bolt is 3/8".
