    Peak Design Travel Tripod

    Peak Design has just announced their 9th kickstarter campaign. They have been planning and working on this product for more than 4 years. This is a new category of camera gear for them as they make bags, straps, slings, and clips.

    I am happy to help them announce the Peak Design Travel Tripod is now on pre-release on Kickstarter

    I have been a fan of Peak Design since I bought the Capture a few years back. Eventually I went on to purchase other products like the Everyday Sling, Everyday Backpack 20L, and Travelline Backpack + Pouches (Tech Pouch, Wash Pouch, Packing Cube, Camera Cube, Shoe Pouch, Rain Fly). When I heard they are making their 9th kickstarter campaign, I couldn’t wait to find out what it was. Some of my purchases have been from their kickstarter and I never had an issue with a pre-release of their products. They are outstanding. Learn more about my photography gear.

    I am excited for this Peak Design Travel Tripod.

    The travel tripod is quick to deploy, lightweight, and has a low-profile design. It is half the size of a traditional travel tripod, fairly close to the size of a water bottle. The campaign starts today May 21st at 7am PST and ends 60 days later on July 18th at 5pm PST.

    It is available in aluminum and carbon fiber. You will save about 20% off retail if you purchase on kickstarter. I trust this company with everything you do, so I would get it on pre-sale to save with this link here.

    The tripod can handle a full frame DSLR camera with a 70-200mm lens and still be stable. It has a weight capacity of 20lbs, a max height of 58.5″, packs down to 15.25″ and has a diameter of 3.25″. It features 5 leg sections. The aluminum weighs 3.44lbs while the carbon fiber weighs 2.81lbs.

    It has a stowable phone mount so you can mount your phone on the tripod at any point in time. The tripod features a secure and immediate camera installation. You can deploy the legs without having to flip the tripod over.

    Need to add weight to the tripod or keep your bag off the ground? Well there’s a nice handy hook in the center to do just that. The bag in the photo is the Everyday Backpack.

    Everglades National Park

    Everglades National Park is one of my favorite national parks to visit. It is the largest tropical wilderness in the United States. It is also the third largest national park in the contiguous United States. I love how I can visit the park without having to drive for too long. It is split with a northern section that you access through Miami or Everglades City and southern section that you access through Homestead.

    I try to visit the Florida Everglades once a year, if not more.

    I always take a camera or maybe two with me. I want to be able to capture all of its beauty like alligators, birds, cypress trees, mangroves and much more. My GoPro Camera is usually mounted on my Peak Design Capture which is attached to my bag. The bag I used that day is the Peak Design EveryDay Backpack. The GoPro will film my walks as I photograph using my Nikon DSLR Camera.

    A lot of these photos are from the main entrance of the park in Homestead, FL. There are several hiking, walking, and canoe trails, as well as campsites. If you visit one of the visitor centers, you can look at the maps and find out more about each one. They tell you the level of difficulties each trail is, meaning how far of a distance and estimate length of time they take.

    This is the largest Mahogany Tree in the United States. I think that it just so awesome that the Everglades National Park has this. I was actually super happy to hear about it that I had to go see it in person and you know, take photos.
