How to save your tripod
If you are out in the mud, shooting amazing landscape photography like I was at Lake Wanaka in New Zealand, with Jay and Varina filming our Behind the Lens Course then this is what you should do when you pack-up your equipment, and leave the area.
- Leave about an inch of space on the bottom leg of your tripod.
- Don’t get the grime and mud get into the locking mechanism – not good.
- Wash off the lower leg of your with fresh water as soon as you can.
- Leave your tripod to dry
- Then pack-up your tripod and store in dry place

Good tip about the dirt on the tripod legs.
Not so sure about the idea with the GoPro on the tripod leg … Be sure you don’t forget you still have the other camera on it, or you might just put the the whole thing down in the mud, thinking the GoPro is safe … but the big camera will drown in the mud 😉
Funny. The tripod works great as a gopro stabilizer. B
