Back in 2012, I began looking for another way to connect my camera to camera straps, wrist straps, and tripods.  The problem was this, if there was a strap to keep the camera safe from accidental dropping, it almost always interfered with the tripod plate. That’s when I discovered peak design gear, it to appeared to solve all this.  If it worked as advertised, it would mean no more fumbling around with equipment and no more straps that didn’t work with other products.

When the folks at Geekoto approached me about testing a tripod, at first I was flattered. However, later I was actually a little scared because I wondered what I would do if it just wasn’t very good?  Then what?  Fortunately, that wasn’t the case as this tripod was a pleasant surprise!
