My Kirk Enterprise Low Pod

As I have recently set up a macro studio, I needed to have a stable support for the camera especially as I intend to do image stacking. I have tried various small tripods but found them not very sturdy. Then I managed to get the Kirk Low Pod on eBay. I am real pleased with it as it is very stable for indoor macro shooting.

I have not used it outdoors, but this is potentially where it may not fare as well (4-feet will not be as stable on an uneven surface), where a tripod will fare better.

The only real negative of the Low Pod is the high price (£139.99 in UK), but once you get over this, you will not regret it.

Specifications:

Weight: 425g

Size: 255 x 240 x 38mm

I use the Low Pod with a FLM Centerball 58 FT, which is as stable a setup as it gets.

If you shoot macro indoors and need a stable setup, then you can’t do better than the Kirk Low Pod; I would use my tripod for outdoors shooting, unless the ground is fairly level.
