This is the tripod I use on my travels. As a solo traveler, I set up my camera on my tripod and use a timer to snap shots of myself. It’s also great for steadying your hand when shooting video and long-exposure photos.
The Manfrotto Compact Series tripod with a built-in head is designed for both taking photos and shooting video. The ”grip”-style head has a Photo/Movie switch on the side; when the Photo setting is selected, the head allows you to rotate the camera between landscape and portrait positions and then lock it in place before taking a photo.
