Tripod Tip: Look for a Rig With Twist Leg Locks

There are two primary types of tripod leg locks – twist and flip lock.

Though flip locks are perfectly fine, I prefer a tripod that has twist leg locks.

There’s two reasons for this.

First, twist locks are much faster, so when time is of the essence and I need to get my tripod ready to go, twist locks will help me do that.

Second, when the tripod legs are in the up position, like with the Sirui A-1005 shown above, you can grab all the locks on one leg and twist them to unlock them simultaneously.

Again, this is a time-saver that might make the difference between getting the shot you want and missing it altogether.
