CAME-TV has announced a new lightweight aluminum tripod. This is clearly being targeted as a budget traveling tripod.

This would make a good option if you need to put a mirrorless sized ‘B’ camera on a tripod for use as a second camera angle for interviews, etc.

While it does feature a pan-tilt fluid head you have to adjust the pan and the tilt axis independently. This is certainly not a tripod I would recommend if you need to pan or tilt while shooting video. I would only ever use a tripod like this for locked-off shots.

They also make sense if you need to shoot locked-off vertical video shots as well.

The CAME-TV has a max. load capacity of just 2.99kg /6.6lb. This means it really is only suitable for mirrorless or SLR cameras, however, in a pinch, you could put a small-sized digital cinema camera on there.

The actual tripod itself tips the scales at 640g / 1.41lb.

It has four sections that can be raised so you can have it as low as 45cm / 17.71″ and as high as 149cm / 58.66″. This is not overly high and it means you are not going to be able to use the tripod for certain types of shots.

As the tripod is quite small, you can easily fit it into bags and cases. This makes it a good option if you are traveling because it won’t take up a lot of space.

The CAME-TV Lightweight Aluminum Tripod is now available for $68 USD.
