Why do our tutors choose this product?
Our tutors set high standards to tripods and ball head. First, a good tripod must be very stable and its height should be close to eye level. Second, the tripod should be light enough to be carried around. It should be able to provide very stable support for the camera when you opened it up.
As for the ball head, it should feature a strong ball-locking for both camera and lens (Including while using portrait orientation). What is more, it has to be able to adjust the direction easily. It would be even better if it comes with 360 degree rotation and friction control.
After trying different brands and styles, our tutors chose the following items!

We choose this carbon fiber tripod because it is light weight, only 1.4kg. It is very suitable for travel, hiking or daily use. Carbon fiber with diamond pattern made this tripod different from others, its special diamond pattern made it more durable than other tripods. What is more, its centre column comes with two sections which can extend it to a higher level. There is a small hook at the bottom of the centre column, useful and handy! Spikes can be inserted at the ends of the tripod legs so that you can establish a stable connection while you are taking photos on slippery ice. The tripod feet can 180 ° reverse floding and one feet can be removed to use as a monopod. After our testing, this tripod gives stable support for the camera and its CP value is super high. With Photo Clam Ball Head, we strong recommend to all students as they can be used for most of the cameras and lenses.
