If you take your photography seriously, then at some point you are going to want to invest in a tripod. This carbon fibre tripod from Manfrotto offers durability at an affordable price. Equipped with a compact ball head with a ma ximum weight capacity of 5kg, it delivers smooth panning and can be locked off for a fixed shot. It weighs just 1.6kg, making it light enough to add to your everyday kit, and it can extend to a height of 1.4 metres. Macro shooters looking for a precise lighting solution should opt for the Metz 15 MS-1 ring flash. Equipped with two individually controllable swivelling reflectors inside the housing, it delivers a balanced lighting solution, especially useful when shooting products. Since you can control the rings individually it is also easy to add accents. The Metz ring utilises wireless TTL so you can use it as a slave with your other flash units. Suits most DSLRs.
