Seattle, WA –In extreme sports and outdoor adventure photography, a fraction of a second and the slightest movement can make all the difference in the outcome of a photo. The UltraPod GO, the latest tripod from Pedco, gives photographers a secret weapon that keeps a camera steady while positioned on its sturdy legs, clamped to anything from a roll bar to tree branch, or even held in the hand. Weighing in at just two ounces, the UltraPod GO folds down to 6 x 1.5 inches, so it leaves extra space in a pack for outdoor adventure necessities.
“Extreme sports and action photographers have unique needs in a tripod,” says Graeme Esarey, Pedco’s Marketing and Product Development Director. “We created the UltraPod GO to give the most adventurous photographers the tool they need to achieve the perfect shot. But it also adds benefits for any serious photographer who needs a versatile, lightweight tripod.”
Designed for use with POV video and high-performance cameras, the UltraPod GO can be used with any device that has a ¼-20 female thread. The UltraPod GO’s “pistol grip” makes panning for video fast, easy and stable and its cast-aluminum ball nests in the grip to provide secure and precise adjustability. The UltraPod GO can be held in the hand, strapped to a surface such as a bike handlebar, or used on its sturdy legs with solid-grip footpads. The UltraPod GO is able to support a camera and attachments of up to one pound. The UltraPod Go can be found at REI and on amazon.com. MSRP of $14.99.
Pedco tripods and clamps offer photographers, sports enthusiasts, and others a unique selection of support devices for cameras, spotting scopes, binoculars, and other gear. Strong, compact and ultralight, these products are durable enough for use on America’s Cup catamarans and light enough to fit in a backpack. For more information on Pedco visit www.pedcogear.com
