Peak Design has just announced their 9th kickstarter campaign. They have been planning and working on this product for more than 4 years. This is a new category of camera gear for them as they make bags, straps, slings, and clips.

I am happy to help them announce the Peak Design Travel Tripod is now on pre-release on Kickstarter

August 2nd, 2019 Update: You can preorder the Travel Tripod on their website.

I have been a fan of Peak Design since I bought the Capture a few years back. Eventually I went on to purchase other products like the Everyday Sling, Everyday Backpack 20L, and Travelline Backpack + Pouches (Tech Pouch, Wash Pouch, Packing Cube, Camera Cube, Shoe Pouch, Rain Fly). When I heard they are making their 9th kickstarter campaign, I couldn’t wait to find out what it was. Some of my purchases have been from their kickstarter and I never had an issue with a pre-release of their products. They are outstanding. Learn more about my photography gear.

I am excited for this Tripod.

The travel tripod is quick to deploy, lightweight, and has a low-profile design. It is half the size of a traditional travel tripod, fairly close to the size of a water bottle. The campaign starts today May 21st at 7am PST and ends 60 days later on July 18th at 5pm PST.

It has a stowable phone mount so you can mount your phone on the tripod at any point in time. The tripod features a secure and immediate camera installation. You can deploy the legs without having to flip the tripod over.

Need to add weight to the tripod or keep your bag off the ground? Well there’s a nice handy hook in the center to do just that. The bag in the photo is the Everyday Backpack.
