Initially, the age of vloggers starts with smartphones, over time vloggers then usually upgrade their equipment. The camera is usually replaced first, but regardless of what camera is being used, supporting accessories such as monopod and tripod are no less crucial in the daily life of a vlogger.
A monopod is usually utilized as the holder and carrier, while a tripod is placed on a table or other flat surface. The portion of using both is uncertain, so usually, a prominent vlogger has both. But now there is another interesting alternative that can handle both functions.
It’s called SwitchPod, and it’s a monopod + tripod combo with a simple appearance and mechanism. Switching from handheld mode to tripod mode can be done in seconds, and vice versa. This is clearly different from other gadgets which requires time to be arranged in such a way regardless of its flexibility.
SwitchPod is lightweight, compact, and nearly indestructible. It will save you time between shots so you can focus more on shooting and less on messing with your gear.
Don’t be fooled by the three thin legs on the pods. The use of aluminum is a guarantee of its toughness, and its developer claims the SwitchPod is capable of supporting loads up to 45 kg. Mount tripods are standard self-use, and are compatible with any camera, from DSLRs to pocket cameras and smartphones.
Move effectively from shot to shot and waste no time setting up. Magnets help to keep the legs crumbled together while in vlogging mode, yet are sufficiently delicate that, with the flick of your wrist, you can without much of a stretch change to tripod mode. This device is now being marketed through the Kickstarter for $ 79.
